C’s italian restaurant in angeles city

In places on October 24, 2010 at 9:49 pm

needed to go on a drive and pampanga seemed a logical choice. first, i’m from angeles and, second, i’d been hearing about this place called C’s which is famous for its italian food, primarily this apparently funky pizza contest.

C’s is right outside clark. if you are in clark, take the exit to friendship highway then turn left. C’s is about a couple of hundred meters to the right.

so, to munch on while waiting – complimentary bread and pesto in olive oil

we ordered the panizza – of course. we went with the primavera which had anchovies and mushrooms and artichokes (P595). each order of panizza comes with a bowl of arugula and alfalfa.

notice how the pizza is very thin and cut into strips. the idea is to take a strip, lay down some leaves, then roll and eat

first, this is very very good. the pizza alone was quite tasty and i really appreciate the technique that went into making the crust that thin. the added flavors of arugula and alfalfa brought in a nice fresh dimension and texture. very yummy experience. perhaps a little pricey at P595 (more for other pizza toppings), but the novelty of rolling makes it ok at least the first time around.

we also had a pasta. penne with chicken, sun dried tomatoes, gorgonzola cheese, and roasted garlic (P350)

also an excellently flavored dish. rich and balanced. the serving wasn’t particularly hefty so i’m not sure about that price tag, but as far as the food itself, there was nothing to complain about.

i’d certainly like to go back to C’s and try their other dishes. maybe there’s no need to do the panizza again, but there are a lot of interesting items on their menu that, even if a bit expensive, will surely be delicious.
