Manila’s hippest restaurant will officially open its doors to the public on June 3.
Here are just some of the things you may want to watch out for:
This!! Pizza Margherita D.O.C. (a.k.a. authentic–it’s the best!) by @salvatore_cuomo11 ?? Did you know? D.O.C. stands for ‘Denominazione di Origine Controllata’. Normally seen on authenticate bottles of Italian wine. There are two pizzas you need to make to certify: Marinara (tomatoes, oil, oregano, garlic) & Margherita (tomatoes, oil, mozzarella, basil). But simply adding the ingredients do not make you DOC, aka “real pizza”. The oven must be wood burning. The dough does matter. @salvatorecuomoph pizza is like biting into chewy, tasty clouds ???? Come and get it on June 2! #salvatorecuomoph
