Mikey’s Original New York Pizza

A couple of friends and us went over to a new pizza place in Bangsar called; Mikey’s Original New York Pizza. Besides the usual horrid need to find a parking space along the Telawi road, a queue had already formed waiting for tables.

I’m not sure if the dude on the right was the manager or owner because he chatted up patrons and asked them if everything was alright.

Anyway, once we were seated at a table, we took a good look at the menu to decide on what pizzas to order. You may want to note earlier that a slice of pizza is bigger than your average Dominoes / Pizza Hut / Papa John’s, in addition, a whole pie is 18″ (1-8-inches).

And I have average sized hands!

The pizza flavors were really good. My favourite was the one with some blue cheese. It went really well with the tomato base of the pizza.

If you’re craving for something spicy, the 9-1-1 is no joke if you eat a lot of it. However, I wouldn’t say the same for you crazy fellows who eat “cili padi” like nobody’s business.

The place features an open kitchen concept and we were nicely seated in a location where we could see into it. Behind the scenes, we could see the main chef whipping the pizzas and the number of helpers moving about.

Overall, you’d expect to spend around MYR 15 +/- for a slice and MYR 80 +/- for a whole pizza pie. You can say it’s worth the money for now, until you’ve tried all of it. Though I would be looking forward to more flavours to come to keep our taste buds tingling for more.

P.S.: They also do deliveries – not sure how far. 😛

Italian food at Trattoria Cucina Italiana

One of the hidden gems in Kuala Lumpur beneath a corporate tower is Trattoria Cucina Italiana, which of course means they’re an Italian restaurant. It’s a cozy place which serves some authentic Italian pasta, pizza along with other Italian food on your mind.

Me and some friends visited this Italian restaurant awhile back – missed posting this, because some of them bought the coupon wanting to tryout the food. And being Malaysian as a Malaysian can be, we had to go makan-lah. 😛

The road to the restaurant wasn’t exactly straight-forward because it’s found on the ground floor of the Perkasa Tower, nearby Beach Club thereabout. Parking in the building tells you its either old (narrow ramps) or maybe everyone were driving old minis previously. *shrug*

Authentic styles normally are consistently good – taste wise. We started with some bruschetta and I think, risotta balls. Our main meals were pasta – wasn’t runny nor too thick, and it made sure we had space in our stomachs for pizza and even some dessert.

All of us agreed the food was satisfying and we wouldn’t mind returning for another meal in the future. I can’t recall how much I paid for two (me and Ariel didn’t get the coupon) but I think our meal was around RM65-75 per person.
