California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) commemorated its 20th anniversary by adding 14 varieties of dishes, along with the return of six trademark pizzas at Shangri-La Mall, in Mandaluyong last Nov 15.
The new menu is only available at Philippine CPK branches and will be available to the public starting Nov. 26 or first week of December.
“Sa Philippines lang siya mayroon,” COO of CPK, Rodel Gomez said.
CPK Marketing Manager Roberto Vallar added that the new menu aims to stir the excitement of regular customers.
“We have a lot of regular customers of course at CPK. So I’m sure they want to try something new,” Vallar said.
“We are reintroducing the most popular pizzas of the past 20 years,” Vallar added. “The old pizza favorites we’re bringing back, with of course the nostalgia aspect of it.”
The six trademark pizzas, which some go as far back in 1998, are the Roast Duck Pizza, Tuna Melt Pizza, Wild Mushroom Pizza, Cheese Burger Pizza, Mango Tandoori Pizza, Rustica Crispy Thin Crust Pizza.
The new menu offers 14 new dishes that comprise five pizzas, two pastas, two salads, three varieties of rice, and two desserts.
The five new pizzas are Spicy Chorizo Pizza, White Clam Pizza, Chicken Fajita Pizza, Tricolore crispy thin crust pizza, and the Tropicale Quorn Regular Hand-Tossed Pizza, while the two new pastas are the Chicken Tequila Fettucine, and Cajun spiced Jamabalaya pasta.
Two new salads are California Harvest Salad, and the Golden Pear Salad, while the three
foreign-flavored rice are Thai Calamari Rice, Salisbury Steak Rice, and the Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp Rice.
The two new desserts are Banoffee Pie, and the Nutella Cheescake.
CPK plans to make the new menu available until May or June next year, with the most popular dish that can capture the public’s taste remaining.
“We’re keeping it on the menu until we roll out the new menu until May or June next year, and the popular ones will definitely remain,” Vallar said.
