Just when we thought our palates could no longer be sa­ti­ated by yet an­other pizza joint, came along Cal­i­for­nia Pizza Kitchen — bet­ter known as CPK, to Velach­ery’s Phoenix Mall. This pizze­ria, which has wooed the in­ter­na­tional mar­ket for al­most 28 years now, is now dish­ing out its sig­na­ture 9’ inch and 14’ inch piz­zas for Chen­nai food­ies. It boasts of over 27- veg­e­tar­ian and non- veg­e­tar­ian piz­zas put to­gether, and a range of ap­pe­tiz­ers and sal­ads. We par­tic­u­larly en­joyed the Char­qui Grilled Chicken, jerk- spiced chicken grilled and served with a house salad and a herb ranch dip. We loved the flavour- rich Greek salad, Ice­berg let­tuce, tossed with cherry toma­toes, cu­cum­bers, crum­bled feta cheese, Kala­mata and black olives and a home- style lemon­herb dress­ing. It ar­rives on a bed of hum­mus with some fresh pita bread. The piz­zas are the star at­trac­tion, we urge you to try their off­beat sig­na­ture fare— the Hot and Cold Piz­zas. Freshly baked piz­zas topped with cold mezze, we dug into the Greek pizza, a multi- grain crust baked with Greek spiced chicken and moz­zarella cheese topped with salad. Fi­nally, do make room for their de­lec­ta­ble, creamy, red velvet cake. Meal for two Rs 1,200 plus taxes At Cal­i­for­nia Pizza Kitchen, 142, Velach­ery Main Road
