California Pizza Kitchen – 9 More Great Items!

California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) has just introduced 9 new items to their extensive menu!

This is the first time I dine in CPK, as I came KL 2 months plus ago only. I’m sooo excited to try the food at there!

When I just stepped in the CPK, I kinda like the feeling there. Dim light, friendly waitress and bit of homey feeling. Then enter the room, and I say WOW in my heart. The view from that room is good. I can see the night scene of KL. That’s really cool.

I chose this Passion Fruit Mojito. Don’t look down on it although it looks kind of plain. It is unique in its own way which is also very suitable for ladies. The alcohol taste is not too strong but just nice.

Moroccan Chicken Salad ( Full:RM32 Half:RM26 )

we started off with this very pleasant looking salad! I feel healthy when I see it. Lots of VEGETABLES which is my favourite. But it doesn’t serve only vegetables. In order to achieve a balanced diet, there must be meat and vegetables together. This dish definitely fulfilled this rule. The Moroccan-spiced chicken breast with crisp Romaine lettuce, roasted butternut squash, dates, fresh avocado,toasted almonds, fresh beets, chopped egg, carrots, dried CRANBERRIES and red bell peppers. Then it is tossed with CPK Honey-Dijon vinaigrette. The combination is really good.

Sonora Egg Rolls ( RM25 )

Here comes the appetizer of the day. I like this a lot cause of its crispy skin with cheesy filling. I can eat whole plate by myself wei. LOL. There’re grilled lime chicken, roasted corn&black bean salsa, Cheddar and Monteret Jack cheeses, fire-roasted mild chilies, green onions and cilantro. then all these were hand-wrapped in a crispy Wonton Roll. It smelled sooooo nice! Furthermore, it served with 2 sauces, which is Tomatillo salsa and Ranchito sauce.

Ginger Salmon ( RM 43.50 )

Another OMG-I-LOVE-IT dishes. I love eating salmon and this, I will say, is one of the best I’ve tasted.

The salmon they used is Norwegian Atlantic salmon which is pan-sauteed. It is not over-cooked so the salmon is still juicy. I’d tried some salmon in other place before which is dry and tasteless. CPK’s definitely not like that. The salmon is so fresh! It is topped with chopped fresh cilantro, green onions and a sweet ginger sauce. Served with wok-stirred mixed vegetables. Personally, I eat the salmon without the sauce because its taste is good enoughSmile

Pesto Cream Penne

Do you like creamy pasta? If yes, you’ll love thisSmile I love creamy and cheesy stuff, so I’m lovin’ it!

It looks simple but I couldn’t forget the taste even untill now. CPK used the Basil pine nut pesto cream sauce, it just made me addicted to it. There’re sun-dried tomatoes and Parmesan cheese. CPK is considerate enough, hence they offered 3 choices for this pasta which is with chicken(RM33), with shrimp(RM36) and with Chicken & shrimp(RM39). You’ll not regret ordering this dish because the fragrance will linger around your tongue.

Since it is CPK, how can we leave the main character, the PIZZAs!

The Meat Cravers ( RM38 )

This is for the Carnivore Smile with tongue out

A combination of Sweet Italian sausage, pepperoni, turkey bacon, spicy salami, julienne salami, Mozzarella cheese and CPK tomato sauce. I can only think of “WOW so meat” . It is suitable for meat-lovers and heavy-taste-lovers. This pizza looks tempting rite? Smile

Ever try burger on pizza? *grin*

CHEESEBURGER PIZZA!!!!! (RM38)

If this is in FB, I will try to click ‘like’ it for a thousand times.

This is really amazing. A pizza tasted like McD Cheeseburger. At first, I wasn’t believe it. I thought it is just the name. But when I try it, that’s really cheeseburger!! It tasted even better than real cheeseburger. the only difference is just 1 is pizza , another is really burger. lol

Ground beef,caramelized sweet onions, Mozzarella and American cheeses, hearth-baked then topped with tomatoes and chilled shredded lettuce tossed in CPK very own sauce. These created this wonderful and creative pizza. The pizza I ate is added fresh avocado(add RM6). You can also choose to add turkey bacon(RM4). The avocado is in BIG pieces, and the avocado-lovers around me were craving for it.

Pesto Chicken (RM31)

I love thin crust pizza + Pesto Chicken is a thin crust pizza = I love Pesto Chicken!

I will never get bored of it by eating it for continuously few days. grilled chicken breast marinated in a basil pesto sauce with mild onions,Mozzarella cheese,sun-dried tomatoes,pesto sauce and toasted pine nuts. It is topped with fresh basil. Eating it just like eating erm soft type of biscuit? LOL sorry no. I just want to say this is really nice and delicious and yummy. one can easily finish all when chatting with others. because it is thin crust pizza, hence it is not so filling. I bet people will choose this after trying out all the nice food in CPK.

Tiramisu (RM22)

Sweet Italian cream cheese and marsala custard between layers of espresso and rum-laced lady fingers. Topped with shaved bitter-sweet chocolate. This kind of tiramisu is the first time I tried. Special.

Chocolate souffle cake ( RM20 )

A Belgian chocolate souffle cake served warm with CPK’s triple-thick hot fudge on vanilla bean sauce.

Red Velvet Cake (RM22)

3 layers of moist red velvet cake frosted with vanilla bean cream cheese and white chocolate curls. served on vanilla bean sauce. The cake plus the ice cream is really compatible.

There’re Tuscan White Bean minestrone (RM15) and Cranberry Walnut Chicken Salad Sandwich( RM31) which I didn’t get to try yet.
