More History here:
Greenwich is Philippines’ favorite pizza chain, with a scrumptious blend of exciting pizza and pasta innovations, all prepared for the comfort of the Filipino and American taste. More than just delicious food choices.
Greenwich started as a small over-the-counter pizza store, in 1997. They have gone through substantial growth that has made them the leader in the Pizza market.
Once you have tasted their delicious pizzas you will keep coming back for more. I do believe they have the best tasting pizza in all the Philippines and at reasonable prices.

TGI Fridays is an American restaurant in the Philippines the food tasts like it did in the US. I had a huge cheeseburger that was so big it did not fit my mouth. And it was good. You can find one at the Ayala “The Terraces” Mall in Cebu City
Short Video taken out front of T.G.I. Fridays in Cebu City The Terraces. Notice the guy sitting at the table smoking, he must be from the UK, what do you think, could be a prince or something… Too bad he will likely die of cancer before he reaches old age…
And just for fun John Cena at a US TGI Fridays
Street Food – Things you can buy on the street
One of the best things you can buy on the street is Pork Barbecue on a stick. You can get this just about everywhere and anywhere. I have eaten a lot of this and never once got sick from it. I can easily down 20 or more sticks of this barbecue.
Here’s a Filipino video on how to prepare it.
Another great street food is Philippine Fried Bananas. They often deliver these directly to your front door or as it is at my house the kitchen door from the locals.
