DKS East 108 Diner Marikina | Relive the Retro in You

Posted on the 31 January 2021 by Michael David Oyco @MDoyco

It seems being "instragrammable" for places nowadays became a subtle requirement, especially for business establishments to attract customers when focusing on the millennial population. The act of sharing on social media now became the language for people to see and know if it is worth visiting or not, well.. initially. Accidentally, I found this nice place and the story goes like this..

We have a family gathering (a prayer meeting to be exact) with a small farewell happening for a cousin that day. I was assigned to order a pizza to an established and well-known pizza parlor already but I remember on stumbling on my online news feed a new (for me lol) food place which I was very interested to visit. Good thing they offer a pizza promo which I ended up ordering for the family. It was P500 for 3 pcs. of 12" pizzas. Well, it was surely a more affordable option but of course, the taste would make the difference.
The diner's name is DKS East 108 Diner. And I can't believe they are just located literally a few meters away from our house (lol). What's up, neighbors!?
Anyway, they actually serve a lot of food variety inside which includes from your all day breakfast meals, rice meals, different kinds of pasta, sizzlings, to even your favorite drinks of cocktails and wines. I already have my eyes on their unlimited chicken wings promo rated at P248 per person but for now, its all about the pizza. So before entering the establishment, of course, first things first, sanitation, temperature check, and logging in of identification is required for contact tracing and safety purposes as we go through this pandemic season.

The retro vibe will surely welcome you as it offer things to as early as the time of the 50s. See old things like the early tele-radio, old ringing clock, and more things to even like a jukebox themed sound system. Why do they have that? Its because their stage is an open mic for anyone who would like to sing. Just make sure you sound good because as far as my personal experience, I can hear their amplified music clearly which means everyone will hear your voice clear as day.

Its actually a plus for me that they are located on the 2nd floor of the E and J building here along the highway of J.P. Rizal. It makes the place more relaxing and spacious. Reserve that edge seat for me please! Haha!

Now back to the pizza. After an hour, I went back to get it and was excited to bring it home. I even forgot my bike on my way back. lol. Nonetheless, I present you this P500 worth of steaming dough.

And to the delight of my family especially my mother, it was thin crust, colorful, and the amount of serving is pretty nice. The edges were narrow which means the bigger portion was the actual pizza itself (I hope you are getting this lol).

The garlic and shrimp pizza was the first one to disappear and also got the greatest feedback among the given from thy family. They all asked where we bought it and now they know. And since we are all living in a compound-like home, it seems I will be seeing more of these either here or us going there. lol.
P500 for these 3 treats is a great deal. And this is just one of their current pizza offers.. They have a ton there bundled perfectly for groups and more deal offerings which is a combination of their menu. Hopefully, I can try their unlimited chicken wings soon and get more pictures there to show you how IG-worthy it is! I will update this post when given the chance.
P.S. They turn their night lights inside starting at 6:00 PM so if you want to get those Instagram-worthy photos, visit them around that time. Please bear with my selfie as I only visited them at the last minute - nakapambahay ang lolo niyo haha!
