It has been almost years since I first dined at California Pizza Kitchen (CPK). But my memory of the restaurant still remains vivid and I could still remember the hearth-open-flame oven they use to bake the delicious pizzas. CPK has always been noted for their unconventional pizzas and are always innovating to incorporate new dishes into their menu.
Recently, MyDEAL launched a new deal for CPK that entitles the buyers to enjoy a 10″ pizza (available in 6 different flavours) plus a RM15 cash voucher that can be utilized in the next visit. The total value for this deal is actually RM45.24 but you will get to enjoy it for only RM15, which translates to about 67% discount in total.
When I knew about the deal, I jumped on and bought two e-Vouchers because the terms and conditions state that two vouchers can be redeemed at the same time per table. After I received the e-Vouchers from MyDEAL via email, all I had to do next was to make a reservation at CPK Farenheit 88. And lets not forget to print the voucher and bring it along to the restaurant for verification too.
The 6 different flavours of pizza you could choose are Original BBQ Chicken, Hawaiian, Pepperoni, Shrimp Scampi and Traditional Cheese. All of them are new to me so I asked for the staff’s opinion. He didn’t hesitate even for a second and recommended us to go for the BBQ Chicken and Hawaiian pizzas, which we did. Being fans of thin crust pizzas, we also opted to have our pan pizzas to be served on thin crust for an additional RM3 each.
We had our doubts at first whether the two 10″ pizza would be enough for three people – because 10″ does sound a little small. So we also ordered the Kung Pao Spaghetti (not covered in the voucher) for sharing as well. But when the pizzas arrived, our doubts were gone and we kind of regretted that we made the spaghetti order. Although the pizzas appear thin, they were actually quite filling with all the cheese and toppings.
As soon as the Kung Pao Spaghetti (RM39 with chicken and shrimp) arrived on our table, we knew it was going to be good judging just by the smell. So that kind of canceled out our earlier regret too lol. Anyway, this clever fusion of East meet West is really delicious with great flavours and contrasting textures.
It does not come cheap but at least CPK does not skimp with the ingredients. You will be glad with the generous amount of fresh whole shrimps, tender chicken slices, crunchy peanuts and hot dried chilies used for just a serving of spaghetti.
Mocktails – Mango Strawberry Colada and Pineapple Colada. FYI these are not included in the voucher so we paid for it separately.
Although we forked out nearly an extra RM100 for the spaghetti and drinks which are not covered by the vouchers, we didn’t mind at all because we were satisfied with the meal.
And instead of utilizing the RM15 dining vouchers we earned by purchasing this deal from MyDEAL, I am giving them away to my readers as a small token of appreciation.
- Here’s some important terms and conditions of the voucher:
- Please present this original voucher before ordering.
- Minimum purchase of RM50 required.
- The voucher cannot be used in conjunction in-house promotion, set menus, seasonal offers and privilege discount schemes organized by credit/discount cards including CPK membership card and other dining vouchers.
- For dine-in only
- Valid till 30 June 2012
