California Pizza Kitchen

Spent Friday shopping with C for the stuff that she needed for her new place which is just a stone’s throw away from mine! Yay! Another friendly and familiar face in the neighborhood.

Met up with G for dinner, it has been awhile since I met G so it was nice catching up with her. As we were all hungry from a full day of shopping and most places were packed, we decided on a old favorite that could be trusted to deliver consistent food standards, California Pizza Kitchen or CPK.

I remember going to the outlet in Singapore more than a decade ago when I still in my teens, in those days eating at CPK with friends was considered to be a major treat. I’m glad to say that the CPK in Dubai bought back many pleasant memories.

The CPK @ Dubai mall is the 1st branch that was opened in the UAE but I heard that the 2nd had just been opened in the new Midiff City Centre Mall. The open-exhibition kitchen takes center stage where guests can watch as all of California Pizza Kitchen’s innovative dishes are prepared.

They have the Works Pizza and the popular Spinach Artichoke Dip to Kung Pao Spaghetti and the award-winning Thai Crunch Salad but no Peking Duck Pizza that is sooo loved by me.

The buffalo chicken tenders were nicely favored and had the nice smokey taste that was so yummy!

They delivered on the old favorite the original BBQ Chicken Pizza with Barbecue sauce, smoked Gouda and Mozzarella cheeses, BBQ chicken, sliced red onions and fresh cilantro. It most certainly didn’t disappoint me! It was done just the way I remember it.

The Shrimp Scampi had sweet fresh shrimp, mild onions, roasted garlic, Mozzarella cheese, fresh oregano and Italian parsley with a white wine lemon-garlic butter sauce.

A more than decent meal with drinks that only set the 3 of us back by just AED165 or less than SGD$70. I’m certain that we will have more return trips ! But its a pity that they don’t have a delivery service …
