Although I really shouldn't be promoting junk food or any of it's ilk, kindly allow me to introduce you to my latest vice: The Korean-owned 9 Pizza 7 Chicken. Available only in Ortigas Center for now, the missus and I love it so much, it's actually on speed dial for those days when we just don't feel like dealing with the kitchen. Made with 3 kinds of beans instead of white flour for it's dough, real Danish Cheese instead of those lab-tested chemical emulsions, and kneaded with mineral water instead of tap, it's definitely a healthier alternative to most of the frankenpizzas available out there. They have seafood (complete with grilled shrimp and crabstick), pepperoni, and vegetarian pizzas (our usual order) for those into missionary position style pizza, but they also offer sweet pumpkin and bulgogi selections for those who are into the more "exotic". It's a pizza, slash scallion pancake, slash hopia, slash God Knows what. All I know is that I like it. Their Spicy Chicken is also commendable for it's generous pieces and no-holds-barred seasoning. And although its main branch on Meralco Ave. (right beside the overpass) is too surreal for my tastes (what with it's country inn/ghetto/korean grocery style decor and Karaoke rooms), their food is well worth the experience if only for take out orders. Good thing they deliver.
