Founded by long-time friends Chuck Ortiz and Sean Santos- Saints Island Pies offer Detroit-style pizza with Filipino inspiration.
After many successful weekends during their Summer 2020 pop-up it was clear they were onto something, so on October of that same year they became a brick-and-mortar restaurant. A thick, rice-flour crust that’s crispy on the edges becomes a canvas for high-concept pies that are all about balance of sweet, salty and sour flavours typical of Filipino cooking. The Bespren Longanizza is a good introduction to the menu, combining a sweet breakfast sausage with Maggi seasoning, crispy garlic and a fried egg. They’ve added lemongrass-infused pepperoni and sisig and adobo-inspired weekly specials, and they’ve expanded the starter offerings, which include a generously portioned kale caesar topped with chicharron.
