Kermit Siargao Is Making Waves in Manila for Their Oven-Baked Italian Pizza in Their Poblacion LocationSeptember 20, 2018
Gianni Grifoni wears many hats—he’s a resort owner, biologist, dive instructor, clothing brand owner (of the iconic Siargao clothing brand Gwapitos), competitive surfer, and chef. And he’s the pizzaiolo behind Siargao’s famous Kermit Siargao restaurant, the in-house restaurant of the resort under the same name. And he’s finally brought his famous pies to Manila.
In the more quiet side of Poblacion in Makati (a couple of blocks behind A-Venue), you will find the comfortable Kermit Manila in a 2-storey house-turned-restaurant. The first floor is an al fresco bar whose walls are decorated with surf-inspired murals, where you can enjoy a Monkey Eagle beer and a smoke. The upstairs leads you to the Gwapitos store, and when you turn left and go through the large door, you’ll find yourself in a large space with a high-ceiling—finally, a place in Poblacion where there is plenty of room to breathe, sit, move, and relax.
A casual pizzeria that evokes the laid-back lifestyle of Siargao.
