cpk new menu offerings

Friday, November 20, 2015

California Pizza Kitchen steps up to its game as it rolls out a new menu of creative, innovative and inspiring dishes.

"We innovate regularly by making sure we introduce new pizzas, pastas and entrées. But even if we're constantly reinventing our menu, we make it a point to stay true to the California heritage that Filipinos have embraced for 18 years. I think the menu simply reinforces our tradition and our belief that by continuously delivering great food and service, we can keep a brand young, fresh and vibrant"

-Archie Rodrigues, Global Restaurant Concepts' President and CEO.


Okay, so enough with the suspense! Read more to find out what the new dishes are, which ones you should chuck, take to bed and marry...

Baja Shrimp Pizza
Baja Pizza - P545


Above is the Baja Pizza
"A truly tempting Mexicali pizza with bold and innovative flavors"
Verdict: Bed. It's delicious but something I can't eat everyday. It's still a must-try, the avocados give a nice refreshing contrast to the rest of the ingredients.

Mexicali Salad
Mexical - P275
"A feisty salad with the bold and fresh flavors of Mexico."
Verdict: MARRY! This is something I can eat everyday. It's so good and flavored just right, nice balance between bland and overpowering. A complete meal in itself rather than just a salad. Perfect for exceptionally hot days when the appetite tends to wane.

Mango-Watermelon Combo Shake Grape-apple Combo Shake

Combo Shakes - P195
"Two refreshing fruit shakes
brilliantly layered, because
sometimes two really is better
than one!"
Verdict: MARRY! I usually like my flavors straightforward and simple but in this case, the statement above holds true. Two is definitely better than one.

Avocado-Mango Combo Shake Cucumber, Lemon, and Mint Combo Shake Chamomile Tea + Peach Lemonade
Caramelized Apple, Bacon + Gorgonzola Pizza
Caramelized Apple, Bacon + Gorgonzola | Regular - P375 | Personal P225
"Sweet and savory. You’ll love it!"
Verdict: MARRY! Because bacon. And it's made even better with the apple glaze (drools...)

Steak Mushroom + Truffle Pizza
Steak Mushroom + Truffle | Regular - P695 | Personal - P375
"Delicate, aromatic and to die for!"
Verdict: BED. I found this a bit overpowering but if you like things hearty, meaty and decadent, you should give this a try. More for men I think

Vegetable Primavera Pasta
Vegetable Primavera | Sharing - P495 | Personal - P275 | +grilled chicken breast P175
"A light and healthy pasta topped with
fresh vegetables and delicious sundried
tomato oil."
Verdict: CHUCK. I found this quite boring and tasteless despite my affinity for clean and crisp favors. It could use more garlic and a large dose of chili flakes, or maybe even a bit of pesto. On the other hand, its' great for those on a diet but still, extra garlic won't cost you much extra calories anyway.

Puttanesca Pasta
Puttanesca - P295
"A fiery and fragrant dish that’s a
perfect way to spice up your day!"
Verdict: MARRY. I know right, I always thought they already had this on their menu! Apparently not. I love the clean flavors of puttanesca and I don't mind having this every other visit.

Queso de Bola Cheesecake
Queso De Bola Cheesecake - P350
"Treat yourself to this rich and
creamy cheesecake. Perfect for
the holidays!"
Verdict: BED...one night stand but not just a random one night stand, more like that one unforgettable night you can't forget. I love how you can feel the grit of the cheese in its texture and the fact that it's not too sweet or creamy that it takes away from the queso de bola. I just find it a bit expensive...I guess the same holds true for memorable one night stands. :P

Salted Chocolate Cake with Caramel Sauce
Salted Chocolate Cake with Caramel Sauce - P245
"Save some room for this
undeniably decadent treat, it’s
worth it!"
Verdict: F%#! and MARRY. Yes it's that good. Get the best of both worlds with this one. I won't talk much about it cause I want it to be a surprise...like a honeymoon that's both sweet and wild.
