Better ingredients???... Same pizza...
Papa John's is the 3rd biggest pizza provider in the USA and has finally reached the Philippines. Their slogan is "Better Ingredients, Better Pizza". Good thing I didn't believe in the hype of better pizza or else I would've been totally disappointed. Personally I believe that food is considered to be good by the hype you generate and then if the actual taste matches the hype.
What I did for this place is compare it to the established pizza places in the Philippines like Pizza Hut/Shakey's. Basically you get almost the same pizza from Pizza Hut and Papa John's, the pizza dough is pretty chewy and the toppings are pretty much the same. You can go to any of the places mentioned prior and you'd get almost an identical quality of pizza.
The thing that makes Papa John's stand out though is their cheesy garlic pizza sauce and their jalapeños. It was pretty nice to get something different and they actually make the pizzas significantly better. The sauce is weird for some people but my friends and I think it's the one of the best things to slather onto a pizza.
Now onto our food...
Cheese Sticks P90 ($2.00) :@) :@) :@)
These things were awesome... with or without sauce. If you're craving for something cheesy, this is the thing to order. Actually when you visit Papa John's this is a must order.
Chicken Barbecue Pizza P430 ($9.00) :@) :@)
Chicken Barbeque Pizza was ok, didn't really get to taste much of the chicken, but the barbecue sauce was a nice touch.
Bacon Cheeseburger P430 ($9) :@)
If you see the picture on the menu and compare it to our picture you'd be disappointed as well. Topping density and distribution was lacking, and it tasted mostly of cheese. Not enough bacon... not enough burger... Applied lots of pizza sauce to this :).
Honestly the place for me is just another option if you're craving for pizza. The sauce and jalapeños they serve though give you a great incentive to make them the pizzeria of choice.
