Motorino’s Soppressata di Picante
PHP 585 – Approximately 12″ brick-oven pizza with tomato sauce, fior di latte, spicy soppressata, fresh chilies, garlic oregano, pecorino, and virgin olive oil.
Motorino is a neighborhood pizza joint that opened its first branch in Brooklyn but now has several in New York, including a couple in Hong Kong and Manila. They make these beautiful artisanal brick oven pizzas with charred, paper thin crusts. It’s an authentic New-York-style pizza, the kind that you have to fold in half to pick up and eat. (aka the best kind)
If you’ve never eaten at Motorino before, then this is the pizza you need to get. It’s made with soppressata which is a type of Italian dry salami. Though not as common in the Philippines yet, it’s quickly replacing pepperoni as the topping of choice in many New York pizzerias. Think of it as hipster pepperoni. It’s absolutely delicious and just perfect with Motorino’s signature thin crust.
Being a US-based franchise, prices are a little steep, especially when compared to our homegrown Gino’s Brick Oven Pizza which churns out similarly delicious artisanal pizzas at much lower prices. Still, I’d come back just for this soppressata. It’s really good.
Verdict: 4.25 / 5
