Dinner with My Two Boys

Hot Hero and Garlic and Cheese Pizza

Shakey’s has left me with fond memories of my youth. In every summer, there was always a nice Shakey’s story.

Ever since it arrived in the north, I’ve always known where to take my boys. The love for thin crust pizza has become a family thing. The flavors have evolved through the years, but the old favorites remain the best. I can’t have Manager’s Choice and Friday Special as often as I’d want to, yet simple garlic and cheese (the only pizza for Eugene) is enough to satiate the appetite for pizza

No Shakey’s dinner is complete without a Hot Hero, still the zingy sandwich that leaves you craving for a second one.

New on the menu, Shrimp Scampi bathed in olive oil and herbs and extra-crispy Calamari Crrrunch with two dips didn’t disappoint. But if you’re eating with someone like Brandon, I guess you have to order more.

Shakey’s Pizzanatics

Ultimate Garlic Cheese

Ericke (and her gigantic maleta) just arrived from her three-month review class in Manila. She’s taking the NCLEX (licensure exam for nurses) soon. She’s actually the third nurse in the family. The dad took us to Shakey’s. Gee, thanks!

Shakey’s is a family favorite. The service is wonderful. They always accommodate requests like having mojos instead of Belgian fries that go with Classic Hot Hero or combining half-and-half pizza varieties. Most essentially, the food is consistently fantastic.

The hubby would have wanted to try the Black Angus Pizza, but it wasn’t available, so we had Shakey’s Special and their new Margherita Pizza with extra anchovies along with Ultimate Garlic Cheese Pizza, all thin crust. Brandon commented that the Margherita is good. It should be really good if he says so. The flavors of tomatoes and oregano spices on a pizza is something I haven’t seen from the American pizza parlor chain before. Ottimo pizza!

We love the Shakey’s Carbonara. One of the top two best carbonaras in town. The slightly salty ham just makes it more palatable. The young ones ordered more garlic bread with cheese.

Classic Hot Hero with mojos (request)

Shakey’s Hot Hero sandwich is a personal favorite. The hubby, too. The signature gourmet sandwich is even better from the last time we had it — oozing with anchovy sauce!

An aunt was also dining at Shakey’s and she asked how many children we have. She couldn’t believe we’ve reached a number that is so rare nowadays. The Catholic Church will love us. To tell you frankly, I haven’t even read the RH Bill.
We always use our pizzanatic supercard discount and loyalty card. It does a lot of help to us. The buy-one-take-one and free drink promo (for a minimum of P299 order)  just makes it easier on the pocket.
