Nolita's Pizza by the Slice

Nolita (North of Italy) | New York Style Pizza Joint in Manila

By now, you've probably heard about this new pizza joint at Bonifacio High Street Central by Chef Cuit Kaufmann.  I brought my husband there a few weeks back for our date night.  He's a bit skeptic at first, but ever since I've started diligently documenting our food experiences, he gamely said yes.  After all, a pizza night is hard to say no to, right?

We found Nolita on the 2nd floor of the left wing building, facing the amphitheater fountain (directly above of SLICE).  I like the casual feel of the joint.  The lighting features, glass window, and ceiling treatment gave the place an industrial feel, while the wooden picnic tables & benches set the rustic & homey feel.  Quite a balance, alright.

We approached the counter to select our pizza, 16 variations in rotation to choose from - meaning, not all are available in a given time.  Nevertheless, the selection that night is still tough to narrow down for 2 people.  The slices are huge!  (All from an extra-large 20-inch pie)

Nolita Buffalo Chicken (Php250)

It took a lot of convincing before my husband said yes to the white sauce based slice.  After tasting it, he later agreed I made a good call.  Foodie points for me! You see, though we both love pizza, my husband and I differ in our preferences on how we want it.  Plain & simple thin crust for me, while he likes the traditional tomato based thick crust pizza w/ loads of toppings.  Anyway, both pizza slices are yummy!  Crust tastes like Tuscani, slightly charred but chewy on the inside.

Nolita's style:  "Put that fork down, EAT WITH YOUR HANDS", and "SHARE A TABLE.  Make new friends."

We also ordered a basket of beer-battered onion rings with Sriracha dip.  We enjoyed the dip so much, we ordered another one (Php20)!

For our drinks, we had Gordon Biersh' Hefeweizen Beer (Php170) & Watermelonade Mojito (Php130), one of the house's specialty drinks.   You can also order a "virgin" version if you're not up for "spiked" drinks.

Overall, my husband and I enjoyed our no-fuss chillax pizza night.  Definitely, tagging Nolita as our new go-to place in Boni High Street Central.  The Stovetop Mac & Cheese, Nolita Burger, the Italian Cannoli desert are something to look forward to in our next visit.
