Back when we were still living in Makati and Rap was in Prep at the Don Bosco Technical Institute, we would always dine at Amici de Don Bosco. I never got to eat there for lunch because the place would always be full of office workers taking their lunch break. Usually, I would have merienda there with other soccer moms while we wait for our boys to finish their training. Those were such happy times! Their pizza and pasta were my comfort food. The year was 2006.
Fast forward to 2013, the once quaint Italian “carinderia” has now grown to include 7 more branches around the metro under the management of the father and son team of Danny and Philip Moran. Even after acquiring the business from the Salesian priests who set up and managed the restaurant in 2007, the Morans continue to maintain the friendship by supporting Tuloy Foundation, Inc., a non-profit organization founded by Salesian priest, Fr. Rocky Evangelista. In fact, Php 10 from the sales of items listed in the “Tuloy Speciali” Amici Menu goes directly to the foundation to help fund their projects.
Asian Chicken Salad (Php 195) – Breaded chicken slices, oranges, and carrots are mixed over salad greens then topped with fried wonton strips and served with sesame dressing.
Mediterranean Blue Cheese and Walnut Salad (Php 195) – A blue cheese, candied walnuts, arugula, and grapes combo over greens and served with red wine vinaigrette.
