California Pizza Kitchen: Sharing My Pizza Story Share Yours Too

I've heard a lot of raves about California Pizza Kitchen as a legendary pizza brand that originated in Beverly Hills in 1985.  Its success paved way to its expansion to more than 250 locations in more than 30 states and 11 counties.  So I've finally tried it out and here's my pizza story!

It was just an ordinary school day when I was invited by some friends to dine at California Pizza Kitchen at Greenbelt 5

As it was my first time, I was amazed that it had a nice bar...

and cozy and chiq ambiance...  It's the kind of venue where you can celebrate occasions, have date or business meetings. 


spinach artichoke dip
Spinach Artichoke Dip (425 php)
For starters, we had the Spinach Artichoke Dip which was served with purple and yellow corn tortilla chips.  As this was my favorite dip variant and they made it especially good, I allowed myself to indulge! 

thai crunch
Thai Crunch (575 php/Full)
I consider the Thai Crunch as a not-your-ordinary type of salad.  They've not much greens on it and it's a nice medley of citrusy and nutty flavors.  It's also delivers a wild and crunchy toothsome experience.

Original Hand-Tossed Pizzas

The Original BBQ Chicken (375 php/Regular)
They say a visit at California Pizza Kitchen is never complete without The Original BBQ Chicken.  The rich legendary barbecue chicken cubes are really something that makes this dish a must-try.  The pizza dough is also soft, warm and chewy!

five cheese tomato
Five Cheese + Fresh Tomato (395 php/Regular)
Cheese lovers would definitely love the Five Cheese + Fresh Tomato.  This is one gooey treat with a zesty tone to boot.

Crispy Thin Crust Pizzas
Sicilian (695 php)
The Sicilian is an overload of meaty flavors that will drive meat-lovers crazy!  It has a superb thin crisp too.

smores pizza
S'mores Pizza (170 php)
My girl friends went gaga over the S'mores Pizza!  Who wouldn't right?  It was buttered thin crust pizza topped with crushed graham cracker, melted dark Belgian chocolate, marshmallows and vanilla ice cream.


Flavored Lemonades

Raspberry (165 php) and Peach (165 php)
For refreshments I had the Raspberry.  The raspberry syrup was very dominant so I didn't taste like lemonade at all. 

Specialty Coffee
brewed coffee
Brewed Coffee (95 php)
While I listened as my fellow ladies shared their heart concerns, I enjoyed this Brewed Coffee.  They also urged me to watch "Starting Over Again: which I have them to thank for because I was able to write my first ever viral post: 12 Life Lessons from Starting Over Again.

To conclude #mypizzastory here's an uploaded photo of me with Achie Joan of Food Alphabet on Facebook.
