There’s a restaurant called The Backyard Reservoir inside Z Compound along Malingap Street that serves good homemade herbed sausages as a topping for their pizza, El Pago.
The Backyard Reservoir is just one of the many restaurants in the Z Compound which is an outdoor food court, similar to hawkers in Singapore (but “nicer looking”). When you’re craving for comfort food such as pizzas, pastas, and sandwiches, you’ve come to the right place.
We had their curly fries to start off our dining experience here.
Sodium. Deep Fried. Their version of twister fries. I like 🙂
I saw in some review that their mozza sticks was a must order. However I found it a bit bland. I’m not sure if I was still expecting more sodium coming from a curly fry hangover.
We had their three cheese pesto which had a mouthwatering presentation and had an appeal that will make you feel less guilty.
But what I loved most was their El Pago pizza.
El Pago was named after its maker who did a great job of creating these herbed sausages. Even if it was just sausage bits, it had a surprising burst of flavor as it had a mixture of herbs and spices. I couldn’t get enough of this that even if I moved on to try the other dishes, I kept coming back to that pizza.
This tuna melt was literally melting as it continued to spill over as I sliced into it. This sandwich was filling but I feel that it wouldn’t hurt to add potato chips on the side. :p
All their sandwiches I must say had the impression that they are giving us their best and they aren’t holding back. They had a signature of their fillings spilling over, showing that they are generous in their serving. Their ham and cheese is good and the fried egg wasn’t overcooked that as I sliced the sandwich, I got the bonus of yummy egg yolk spilling. I would say that this is a complete breakfast.
Among their sandwiches though, their Pastrami was the best.
When it comes to their pasta, La Onioni had mushroom and bacon bits to it however I couldn’t quite taste it. 🙁
Their Marinara was ok as well… but the pasta I most liked was…
PESTO TUYO! 🙂 I was able to taste the tuyo bits in it and I just love pesto. This was the most appealing to me.
The Backyard Reservoir is a nice place to hang out especially if you’re just around the area. What’s good about them is that they bring cold cuts to your door with no delivery charge… as long as you’re within the vicinity. :p
They close at 12am so feel free to stick around, chill out and enjoy the laid back, no fuss dining experience. 🙂
