3 Reasons to Try All-in Overload by Greenwich!

All-in Overload Greenwich

Iloilo City, Iloilo – What is it about pizza that makes us crave for it? Is it the sight of oozing cheese, the juiciness of the overloaded toppings or the aroma of a freshly baked crust? If you still can’t figure out what makes pizza so irresistible, it’s probably because there is an art (and a science) to making the best-tasting pizza. Baking this all-time favorite takes more than just topping the pizza with all the flavorsome stuff and popping it in the oven. The good thing is, every barkada’s favorite pizza chain, Greenwich, has given several insider tips on how to spot a really good pizza.

All-in Overload Greenwich

The Anatomy of a Perfect Pizza: All-in Toppings, All-out Experience

  1. All-in toppings. Let’s be honest, the sight, smell, and of course, taste of a pizza that’s overloaded with toppings has always been tempting. While it’s true that you can top it off with whatever basic ingredient you want, a pizza becomes even more delicious if it’s generously sprinkled with the tastiest and meatiest toppings. Imagine enjoying a pizza that has all of your favorite meaty toppings like ham, pepperoni, burger crumbles, bacon, Italian sausage, and Spanish sausage, plus additional ingredients to complement the taste such as veggies, pineapples, mushrooms and cheese – that’s all-in flavor in one crust like the new Greenwich All-In Overload Pizza. A favorite of actor Enrique Gil, the All-in Overload is packed with the meatiest ingredients that’s an explosion of flavor with every bite.
  2. The dough has it. Contrary to what most people think, the pizza crust is more than just a base for the toppings. It actually sets the initial flavor base and texture of the entire pizza. This is why Greenwich really pays attention to the dough they use for the crust, which is important to a pizza fan like Robi Domingo. Unlike the ready-made crusts you see in the supermarket, Greenwich goes all out by preparing their dough from scratch daily, using only the best ingredients. Since the crust is made fresh every day, you can be assured that each crust has the right texture and is flavorful down to the last millimeter. If you like to munch down on pizza to the very tip like Robi, then the taste, texture and heft of each crust matters! No leftover crusts here!
  3. Best shared with the barkada. Some things are just better when shared – and pizza certainly tops that list. It’s not because the dish is too filling, or the quantity can become too overwhelming for one person, but some dishes like pizza are just more fun to eat when the entire barkada is in tow! Sharing a pizza that’s overloaded with toppings, flavor and that unmistakable pizza goodness with friends is enjoyable because it heightens the experience you have with each bite. Especially when you want to unwind with the darling of your barkada like Yassi Pressman, sharing an overloaded pizza while you’re chillin’ makes barkada time even more fun. #BarkadaGoals unlocked!

All-in Overload Greenwich

Of course, it would be better if you could test your pizzanatomy know-how on an actual pizza, like Greenwich’s new All-in Overload. The All-in Overload is loaded with six kinds of meat: ham, pepperoni, bacon, Italian sausage, burger crumbles, and Spanish sausage plus veggies, cheese, pineapples and mushrooms. This deliciously satisfying pizza has everything you would want in a pizza and is just right for the entire barkada.

You can get the All-in Overload pizza as part of the Overloaded Trio exclusive delivery offer. For only P499, you and your barkada can enjoy 3 of your favorite flavor-loaded double-sized Greenwich pizzas. Call #5-55-55, or order online at greenwichdelivery.com for some all-in goodness.

Deco’s Original La Paz Batchoy Opens 3rd Branch

Deco's La Paz Batchoy Robinsons Jaro

Deco’s Original La Paz Batchoy brings your favorite batchoy near you as it opens its 3rd branch at Robinsons Place Jaro. This is a good news for those who are living in Jaro and neighboring districts who want to have a taste of the original batchoy. Visiting tourists who are touring the area need not to go far to have taste of Iloilo’s most popular signature soup.

Deco's La Paz Batchoy Robinsons Jaro

Father of La Paz Batchoy

Deco’s Original La Paz Batchoy was founded before the war by Federico “Deco” Guillergan Sr., a butcher in La Paz Public Market. Deco, as what he is called by family and friends, loves to cook and experiment on soup by combining meke (noodles), pork meat, liver, intestines and different spices. Deco’s soup, which he named bathcoy, became a big hit to clients at the public market, encouraging him to expand his business. And the rest is history.

Ilonggo Heritage in an Asian Concept

Deco’s Original La Paz Batchoy Jaro branch is a far cry from the batchoyan in La Paz Public Market decades ago. It is not your typical batchoyan as this one will be a fusion of Asian and Ilonggo, a first of its kind in Iloilo.

Designed Ramen house style, at the center of the room is an open kitchen with counter where the guests can eat their meals. The resto is vibrant blend of red, orange, yellow and blue tones, instantly brightening up one’s mood upon entering.

Deco's La Paz Batchoy Robinsons Jaro

“We are revolutionizing the look of a batchoyan in Iloilo to make it more exciting to our guests. Given the fact that the Iloilo is very progressive, Ilonggos today are more modern and many tourists are visiting our city. We have created a look that has an inviting ambiance that people from all walks of life will be happy to eat there,” says Marichel Teves-Magalona, licensed operator of Deco’s Original La Paz Batchoy.

Keeping Tradition

The look of the restaurant may be modern but the batchoy and other meals are very much Ilonggo and prepared the traditional way. This is the reason why Deco’s batchoy is so flavorful that people keep coming back.

“We continue to prepare our batchoy the same way it was done when it was created by Federico Guillergan Sr. before the 2nd World War broke out. This how Ilonggos love their Batchoy, and to this day we continue to please their palate,” says Mrs. Magalona.

Deco's La Paz Batchoy Robinsons Jaro

With the concept of having an open kitchen, diners get to see how the food are being prepared and served to them, and will likely be impressed on the way the stock making. We ensure the quality of our ingredients. We have our own reverse osmosis water system so clients are assured that the water used for our stock and drinking water are clean and safe,” adds Mrs. Magalona.

With the opening of Deco’s Robinsons Place Jaro, you can enjoy the Ilonggo’s favorite soup in three locations. The other two branches are in Valeria Street (La Salette Building) and Robinsons Place Iloilo.

Megaworld Unveils Iconic Martin Delgado Monument in Iloilo Business Park

Martin Delgado

Iloilo City – Philippines, January 19, 2019 – In Iloilo where the city’s rich history is present in every corner, the 8.8-meter bronze statue of the greatest Visayan ‘revolucionario’ General Martin Delgado in Iloilo Business Park (IBP) is something that is hard to miss.

A masterpiece created by Spanish sculptor Gines Serran-Pagan, one of the world’s most renowned international contemporary artists, the Gen. Delgado statue has become nothing short of a landmark in the City of Love. Located at the Casa de Emperador inside Iloilo Business Park, the statue stands proudly as a tribute to Ilonggo hero’s historic feat.

“We are very happy to have such an iconic masterpiece here in Iloilo Business Park, especially one that bears a stamp of artistic greatness courtesy of Gines Serran-Pagan. This statue is truly a fitting reminder of the continued emergence of Iloilo as a progessive city that puts the arts, history, and culture at its very core,” says Kevin L. Tan, executive vice president and chief strategy officer, Megaworld.

The statue was first made in clay, then fiber glass, and eventually casted into bronze by Serran-Pagan himself. It took almost a month for the statue to arrive here in the Philippines from China where it was created, but the overall design and preparation of the massive artpiece took more than three years to be completed.

“I feel really proud because General Martin T. Delgado deserved this honor for having sacrificed his life for Iloilo. The bronze sculpture has the durability of thousands of years. His legacy will be an inspiration to future generations. My gratitude to his family, the people of Iloilo, and to Dr. Andrew L. Tan and his company Megaworld for giving me the opportunity to create this monument and commemorate the most famous son and hero of Iloilo,” shares Serran-Pagan.

Born in Ceuta, Spain, Serran-Pagan has devoted his life in developing communities by combining art, anthropology, history and culture. Some of his remarkable sculptures include the Pillars of Hercules: Abyla and Caipe and The Union of the World: Monument to World Peace, deemed to be the largest works of art depicting Classic mythology in the contemporary world which are both in Gibraltar.

Just recently, Serran-pagan was feted with the Lorenzo de Medici Medal of the Artism Miami, Florida for his valuable contribution to the arts in the world. The recognition was bestowed upon him by Prince Lorenzo De Medici himself, the direct descendant of the Renaissance sponsor of the Arts.

With over 250 exhibitions across 20 countries, international news agencies and organizations consider Serran-Pagan as a western artist who has had more exhibitions in Asia. He earned a master’s degree in Anthropology from New York University and a PhD from City University New York. Serran-Pagan’s artworks are collected by major museums around the globe, including the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
