Ever since then, I've been meaning to pay them a visit in order to try their pizza again, especially the Three Cheese Pizza. However, their original branch is not part of my usual route and a bit far from the workplace. That is why I never got around to that second visit. Until one day, as I passed by Duterte St. after work, I noticed this new dining spot beside Grub Resto Cafe, right across Shakey's. There were some staffs handing out menus along the street and it was then that I realize it was actually Barrio Bistro, which is their newest and second branch. That particular day turned out to be their new branch's grand opening, as well.
I made a mental note of trying it next time and that second visit finally happened this week. Their Buy 1, Take 1 promo is still offered at their Duterte Branch, which is a good deal, especially for those who wanted to get good quality pizza for a reasonable price. It is basically a steal as you get two pizzas for a price of one!

We ordered two pizzas - Pizza Overload and Barrio Overload. Both pizzas were sold only for Php 365 + PhP 10 for the takeout box because E & I obviously cannot finish them both. The Pizza Overload consists of the following toppings: marinara sauce, mozarella cheese, sausage, pepperoni, ham, onion, and mushroom. Meanwhile, the Barrio Overload is made up of my other favorite toppings: marinara sauce, mozarella cheese, mushroom, olives, onions, and bell pepper. Clearly, we like the "overload" type because I simply love pizza!
The thin and crisp crust of their pizzas is, in my opinion, what had helped establish Barrio Bistro as a favorite among Davaeonos. The crust is thin and crispy once cooked, yet it retains that savory and succulence with every bite that allows you to enjoy the flavor of the crust as it blends with the toppings. It isn't the best thin crust pizza in Davao (for me) but it is right up there among the contenders.
Also, I had to make a note of the vibrant and colorful ambiance at their new branch in Duterte. Their original branch was more simplistic, even regal look to their restaurant. This one is a bit more on the playful side with lots of drawings on the wall, colors that pop and a modern furniture.
If you find yourself craving for a Barrio Bistro pizza, you may now choose from one of their two branches: Lacson Street in Obrero and Duterte Street.
