Brooklyn’s: A new place to dine in the heart of San Juan

There’s this newest place where people can dine and feel Brooklyn’s renowned pizza. Brooklyn’s is now open at its newest home in N. Domingo Street, San Juan.

Brooklyn’s humble beginning was first tasted in bazaars more that a decade ago. Their first home was built in 2003 in BD Homes Paranaque. In 2013, Brooklyn Pizza has undergone a major shift from being a pizza joint into a family restaurant. Have you seen their newest logo? If not, check below.


Have you seen the elephant with the wings? Maybe you’re asking why they have incorporated elephant to a pizza restaurant. So here’s the catch, way back then in Brooklyn they have this legend that the iconic Brooklyn Bridge was crossed by 21 elephants to prove that the bridge is stable, thanks to P.T. Barnum for having this idea to let the elephants cross the bridge. The 21 elephants are weighing 100 tons and as of today Brooklyn Bridge is still standing and one of the busiest bridges in the States.

Since Brooklyn Pizza is now Brooklyn’s they have transformed it into a very cozy place and you can feel like it’s a Saturday Night Out with your friends or family. They are offering their specialties like Porko Pizza, Tomato Carbonara Pasta and their yummy Buffalo Wings. By the way Brooklyn’s also offers an array of Filipino brunch meals like Longganiza Rice, you can choose from Recado, Hamonado and Batutay. They also have Tapa Rice and what they call The Patriot which includes everything Filipino have tapa and longganisa.

When I first entered the place it is cozy and have this family approach (I’m thinking of bring my family here soon). I went to Brooklyn’s yesterday for their blogger event, thanks again to my friends for tagging me along with this very great foodie experience.

The Ambiance Outside
Since, Brooklyn is situated in Madison Square fronting Little Baguio Terraces. The ambiance outside is very perfect for the location it’s near residential and commercial area because it is also near Broadway Centrum.


The Ambiance Inside
The place is really cozy and I like the feeling of oldness and the no “pintura” (paint) feel. Maybe they should put more Brooklyn-ish type of décor to make it more Brooklyn but overall it’s really cozy.


The People/Servers
The servers know what they are talking they are also knowledgeable about the food and their items in the menu. They are also courteous and have smiling face when serving you.

The Food
Squash Soup -I am really not a fan of veggies, but when I tasted it I liked it. It is somewhat spicy, but not too spicy. And it is made from natural squash not from canned squash. The soup has a garlic bread on it.


Garlic Bread -the garlic bread has a prominent garlic taste and by the way I really don’t like garlic, but I love that I can taste the olive oil in the bread.

Deluxe Pizza – this pizza is loaded with meat and veggies. I love it since I am a big fan of pizza. I like the distinct taste of the pizza and its tomato sauce.


White Pizza – the white pizza is very cheesy and the pizza is not that thick which for me is ok. It is made of 3 cheeses.

Vegetarian Pizza – I haven’t tried it since it’s veggies haha, but for your viewing pleasure here’s a photo of it.

SAM_1219.JPGBuffalo Wings – the chicken is so juicy and spicy but not too spicy. I love their ranch dip, it really complements the Buffalo Wings.

Overall, my experience in Brooklyn’s is “A” okay. I wish to come back and taste more of their pasta and other items on their menu. Maybe next month I’ll come back with my family. Thanks to Sir Johan Sy and Sir Rhanch Macalalad for the super cute and nice mug! plus the chocolates! Can’t take its photo since my boys ate all of it already.
