I remember that JOEY'S PEPPERONI was a favorite of ERICJAZ FOODIES and Team Campo that we have been regular diners ever since the little lords were, well, really little, and mareng Gail's tisay superstars were just on their way. We loved the pizzas and the pastas because it all tasted so delicious compared to the other popular fast food restaurants out there. In fact, we are such fans of JOEY'S PEPPERONI that we would always include it in our birthday plans or special occasions when we can.
Alas, we ate in JOEY'S PEPPERONI so much before that we suddenly grew tired of it. You might say that like with Rachel and Ross, we "took a break". That break however took so long as our short attention span was grabbed with the sprouting of other restaurants. Good thing that during JOHAN'S SLEEPOVER the week before, the boy was craving pizza and Ding! Ding! Ding! JOEY'S PEPPERONI was the restaurant nearest to us then. The Chinese Dimpol and I enjoyed the food so much that when mareng Gail fancied our JOEY PEPPERONI posts, I immediately invited her to a dinner date there.
And like before, we all had a great time. There may be some changes but we immediately remembered why we craved for JOEY'S PEPPERONI so much when we were not yet so much foodies (read: gluttons) back then.
It's couples night for ERICJAZ FOODIES and TEAM CAMPO!
Pareng Jun and a very shy (kuno) mareng Gail!
It has been a while since our last couples' date!
Time to order!!!!
It was very hot that day so this tall glass of iced tea was such a welcome sight for my kumare.
First on the table was an order of JOEY'S PEPPERONI Mushroom Soup (P145.00) that I split with mareng Gail!
The soup was creamy and rich. This was so perfect with the crusty bread!
The taste was so simple yet very comforting.
Next up is a plate of JOEY PEPPERONI'S Pesto Spaghetti (P210.00).
The nutty and herby taste were still there but I find that the servings not the same as before.
I remember that a plate of JOEY PEPPERONI pasta was enough for sharing. Now for this order, while it was good, could only feed one selfish person... ME!!!!
Mareng Gail was seriously craving for some Carbonara (P225.00) that night.
I was able to get a taste and it was as "malinamnam" as I remembered it to be!
Of course, we cannot eat in JOEY'S PEPPERONI without having some pizza.
We usually order ordinary cheese or pepperoni pizza here. But we wanted to sink our teeth in new tastes! The Mushroom Alfredo (P500 for 12 inches) was something different for us but a most welcome change!
The beef added a different spice and meatiness to the cheesy pizza. The Chinese Dimpol was loving every morsel of it and munched happily that it was almost creepy.
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Kidding!
ERICJAZ FOODIES with TEAM CAMPO in JOEY'S PEPPERONI!!!!
My pesto was good but I wanted it to be more exciting. As usual I asked for some chili flakes for that extra kick in my pasta.
I added extra Parmesan cheese too!
The shy pieces!
I swear we are getting old already!!! Our small tummies cannot handle big servings anymore.
Like I said, the pizza may be very good but our tummies were popping already. We just took these 2 pieces home.
After eating, the chatting continues!
Plus MORE chatting!!!!!!!!!
Our JOEY'S PEPPERONI bill!
After paying, I suddenly had a craving for some coffee.
Since they did a last call already, we cannot order dessert. I just took out the box of Dunkin Munchkins my officemate gave me earlier to enjoy with my coffee. He he he he he he he he he!
TEAM CAMPO and ERICJAZ FOODIES night out!
JOEY'S PEPPERONI may have had changes with the pricing and the servings of their food but the same flavors were there that we will forever love.
Even if it was 7 years ago, the enjoyment factor was still the same and nothing really changed for US.
Heck! 7 years ago we did a couples night here with mareng Gail pregnant with my future inaanak Sasha!
And yep! 7 years after we are still doing our couples date here at JOEY'S PEPPERONI and mareng Gail is STILL pregnant with MY future inaanak AGAIN!!!!
Yihiii! Congratulations dear Mareng Gail! You may complain about nausea and grogginess 24/7 that you don't have time to fix yourself. But to me, you are so blooming and ever so pretty now!
Let's have a baby shower at JOEY'S PEPPERONI!!!! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!
