Pizza Hut is one of the older pizza based restaurants in the Philippines. We ate at the SM Megamall branch because my wife had two(2) receipts to claim for the BPI credit card promo. We were pleasantly surprised to see that it was not yet converted to the dreaded “Pizza Hut Bistro” version.
Cream of Mushroom Php 55.00
Standard Cream of Mushroom soup, not bad at all. The croutons were crunchy and not soggy so it was a plus for me.
Creamy mushroom soup topped with herbed croutons
New Hut Patatas Php 79.00
Pizza Hut’s version of Shakey’s Mojos. I like the way that it is thinner and a little bit more crispy compared to the Shakey’s Mojos and the dip was ok. Adding more variety to the dip flavors would be a big improvement.
American potatoes, tossed in special seasoning that’s uniquely Pizza Hut. Served with a choice of dips.
Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza Personal Php 115.00 (free because of BPI credit card promo)
I like the blend of beef, bacon and cheese (who doesn’t!) and the slightly sweet sauce. One of my favorite pizza flavors from Pizza Hut.
Delicious crispy bacon and beef on a midly sweet sauce. Also topped with a triple layer of cheddar and mozarrela cheese.
Spaghetti Bolognese w/o Meatballs (free because of BPI credit card promo)
This was my order, I liked the slight sweetness of the tomato sauce including the generous amount of meat and cheese. It was very filling and tasted great.
Pasta cooked al dente with savory sweet Bolognese sauce. An all-time favorite!
Pesto Chicken Penne Php 155.00
My wife ordered this dish, it had a generous amount of chicken, pesto and cream sauce.
Penne pasta with basil, pesto and cream sauteed with tender chicken strips
Overall, it was a pleasant dining experience. We were very happy with the free food and although the service was a bit slow, it wasn’t as bad as the usual crappy service expected from a Pizza Hut Bistro. Also, we were pleasantly surprised to see that it was the old Pizza Hut restaurant and not the converted “Bistro” version which sucks so much. Overall, my faith has been restored in the old Pizza Hut restaurant. Pizza Hut Bistro sucks, please stop converting the old Pizza Hut restaurants that we love.
