Why I Live for Saturdays

When Pizza comes to mind, I instantly think New York. New York, where the pizzas are extremely delicous and served at large! Sadly, pizzas in Manila don't really suffice except this pizza joint I will be talking about today! 

Last saturday I finally tried the most talked about pizza joint in Manila, Nolita and it was NO DISAPPOINTMENT whatsoever. They certainly did not scrimp on ingredients and left me going out a happy customer. :)

I loved everything about their pizzas! From the toppings to the crust itself. There was nothing left on our plates afterwards, not even the crust (and we usually hate the crusts) it was just THAT GOOD!

I was there for lunch at around 11:30 so not many people were there, but they're usually really packed during dinner so better go early.

Pesto grilled chicken with sun-dried tomatoes and the original cheese which were both so mouth-watering! 

My personal favourite (so far), the Chicken Parmigiano pizza. Everything about it was yummy! The chicken was really filling that I almost couldn't finish my second pizza. 

Pizzas at Nolita's don't come cheap. They're priced at about P200.00 + each but are 20-22 inches in size and are exceptionally yummy so it was definitely worth it for me.

I'm not a big fan of beer, but you might be! Check out their selection of imported beers. 

They also serve pasta, burgers, and sandwiches apart from their best-selling pizza which I definitely will go back for soon! 

Outfit for the day:

Tribal top: SM department store - High waisted shorts: F21 - Accessories: Taipei market - Wedges: Parisian - Bag: Hong Kong

Finally got to wear my owl bangle! Isn't it so cute? :)

Definitely the most comfy pair of wedges I own. I don't normally wear heels, but I lasted about 10 hours that day in them without feeling any pain. 

A typical meal for us is never complete without dessert! So we went to Stella but were seated at Rocket Room because they were full. 

They serve different flavours of Arce Dairy ice cream which just means... MANTECADO! Which is also known as "Manila Vanilla" :)

Four-Layer Red Velvet Cake. -- Was moist and yummy! Not too filling, everything was just right. 

Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake. -- It was calling to us! HAHAH. This was really moist and flavorful too. I love anything salted caramel from macarons to ice cream flavours. :")

My weekend pig-out buddies. :)

I love all these restaurants! Check out my recent post on Mr. Jones here.

SPOTTED: Iona Mapa and Maui Uy at Jamba Juice. 
EHEHE, love you guys! 

Went to SnR with my mum to buy some goodies for another CANADA sleepover. :)

Met up with my friends at High Street afterwards to have dinner at Pancake House. Ordered their spaghetti. What's new? HAHA.

Meet my grade school buddies. :) Without even planning, our colours all formed the rainbow! Which I think is pretty cool. Don't you think? 

They boys slept over again and we played Balderdash but with my mum this time! It was fun like all the other sleepovers we've had. HEHE.

So this is why I live for Saturdays! I get to eat all the yummy things, do the things I love and spend time with my favourite people in the world. :")
