Yes, I know pizza in the Philippines is not a highlight of the country, and this is one of the poorest examples from the crust on up to the toppings and everything in-between, yet still popular with the locals so good for Shakey's. I've eaten at a U.S. location before (just once) and not much better -- I think very few remain there.

For this review, I need to point out that I am used to the pizza in the USA, and in particular at Shakey's, which is based there. In my somewhat limited experience in the Philippines with pizza, at Jollibee and such, the pizza is FAR from the authentic Italian pizza. We had two kinds of pizza during this visit to the SM Shakey's, thick crust with pineapple and ham (Hawaiian style pizza), and a thick crust "special" with beef and onions and mushrooms. The special was way too greasy, and rather odd flavored for my taste, BUT the Hawaiian/Tropical style pizza was surprisingly TASTY!! It is much like this style of pizza common in the USA. The crust was tasty Italian style and the rest complemented what is a rather tasty treat. So.... of all the pizza I have so far sampled in the Philippines, the Hawaiian style thick crust pizza at Shakey's is by far the tastiest!! I base my food rating on this pizza and NOT on any other at Shakey's!

In addition to the ONE pizza type I can recommend, the wait staff and management of this Shakey's was very attentive and energetic - this without expecting a tip.
