Sorry it took me ages to get my first post up. Judging by how little time I have for the internet these days, I can only quickly give a review but I’ll make it worth your while by making it picture-intensive instead :) I took a trip downtown to check out Yellow Cab Pizza Co. It’s like your regular takeaway pizza parlour but I think they are trying out-gourmet its mainstream competitors like Pizza Hut and Domino’s.
Here are some pictures.
Raspberry Sola iced tea and kiwi strawberry Snapple.
Their delivery bikes are really cute!
The menu is on the wall and small slip of paper by the counter.
Cutlery. Not the most fantastic ensemble for the environment.
Even if you’re eating in, they will serve the pizzas in the box. Again, not fantastic for Mother Earth.
The Gourmet Garden – zucchini, grilled eggplant, fresh tomatoes, black olives, capers, mushrooms, onions, red and green bell peppers.
It was very cheesy but there was something sour about it. It’s not stringy like Pizza Hut’s and the crust felt half-cooked because after biting it in half, you can see raw-ish dough. But the vegetables were very, very fresh and the juices were still intact with every bite.
Corona chicken salsa strips of chicken with Southwestern salsa.
The base was the same as the GG, no good. I wasn’t sure what Southwestern salsa was like. The chicken strips looked more like cubes. Tomatoes were fresh and it neutralised the sour cheese which topped the pizza.
Overall, I was not impressed. I read rave reviews about the place but all I can say it’s far too overpriced for run-off-the-mill pizzas. I’d recommend it for people who are tired of mainstream pizza brands (but so many other pizza options around!) and don’t mind paying big bucks for fresh ingredients. Prices for the pizzas range from RM19 to RM28.60 for the 10″ pizzas, RM30.50 to RM44.70 for the 14″ pizzas and RM47.80 to RM69.70 for the 18″ pizzas (it’s huge!). Other stuff like pastas, calzone and potato halves are between RM12.80 to RM16.80.
Oh and the cheese … I have no idea what funky mozzarella they were using but it was sour. They might want to consider changing their pepper sauce to Tabasco’s because whatever that they served, tasted yucks. I’m unlikely to go back. I prefer Marco’s Pizza anytime!
