Let me tell you a little secret. If there's one thing in my mind that I would rather eat whenever I'm stressed out or just plain hungry. My faithful answer will always be pizza. This American comfort food is what I consider the world's greatest food ever created hence I couldn't imagine living without it. LOL!
That's why when I got here, I have always been in the search for finding some good and authentic pizza taste. Lucky for me, I found this interesting hole in the wall pizza chain that's garnered a lot of praise lately. This restaurant is located at Ibn Batuta Mall and they name it Flippin Pizza
The place has an American Pub atmosphere with a very large TV screen which is just the perfect spot to watch your favorite sports league. It has graffiti walls and the kitchen is quite open so you can literally see your pizza being thrown up in the air and made fresh. What I love about the place is that you get to have that sense of privacy whenever you're dining here.
For a pizza chain, the menu is actually quite extensive. It doesn't limit itself in pizza's alone. They also serve amazing starter dishes, calzones, drinks, and desserts.
Just a tip, If you want to try a lot of flavors then you should probably do what I did which was to split a single pizza in two flavors. Not only that you get to taste both different variants but you also get to have picture perfect results. :D
Our orders are the following:
Electric Lemonade - Blue Lemonade with a zesty kick.
This drink is so refreshing. The one on top is the lemonade juice and the one below kinda neutralizes the zest which I liked.
Mojito - Soda Water, lime, and Mint
I find this drink too sweet. I think it's not a good idea to have this when you're planning to devour a whole pan of pizza.
While waiting for your food, they offer some complimentary knotted bread with a pizza sauce for the dip.
For a complimentary bread, this tasted pretty good. The bread was served hot and the dip was like a sneak peak of how delicious the pizza is going to be . :'D
Chili Cheesy Fries - loaded fries smothered with cheese, baked beans and sprinkled with jalapeno slices served with some caesar-like dip
This dish lacked the sauce in it. It doesn't have enough cheese and it was too dry for me. Maybe adding up some cheese would make this dish great since the ones at the top were fairly good.
Philadelphia Steak Calzone - stuffed with Mozzarella, thick beef slices, Capsicum, Onions, Mushroom, and served with a Barbecue sauce.
I ordered this calzone to have some variations and let me tell you how thankful I am to order this dish. I am loving every bite of it. It was live devouring a Chicago deep dish pizza because of all the stuffing inside. The barbecue sauce that comes with it is the perfect pair for it. It enhanced the flavor of the dish.
Here comes the pizza:
Buffalo Chicken (L) - Grilled chicken, Buffalo Sauce, Blue cheese, and mozzarella.
This signature pizza has a completely different feel. It has a sweet buffalo sauce taste that distinguishes it apart from the other pizzas.
Bronx (R) - Pepperoni, Sausage, Mushroom, Garlic, Onions, Olives, Capsicum, Tomato Sauce and Mozarella.
This another signature dish just hits the right spot for always hungry people like me. It's stuffed with protein and toppings that's bursting with flavors.
Pepperoni (L) - Pepperoni, Tomato Sauce, and Mozzarella.
This classic pizza variant is simple but packs a lot of flavor. I love the pepperoni meat that comes with this pizza. The cheese was very elastic and the tomato sauce is the best. I love this classic american dish. It feels like eating one good pizza at new York. This was my top favorite. :D
Chicken Adobo (R) - Chicken Adobo, Red Onions, and Mozzarella Cheese
Probably the next best thing we ordered, Being a Filipino, I was quite skeptical at how they are going to make a pizza out of the Filipino staple dish. It turns out to be better than what I have expected. The meat was flavorful and that bed of cheese is just too sinful.
For Desserts, we had:
Triple Chocolate Brownie - Chewy Chocolate Brownies served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Let me just say that I was surprised at how good this dessert tasted so well at a pizza parlor. The brownie was very chewy and the vanilla ice cream on top was heavenly addicting. It was a very good pair indeed.
I loved the overall experience we had at Flippin Pizza. I was so happy to taste some authentic NY styled pizza and try some amazing food as well. The service was pretty good and all the food was baked fresh. Will definitely come back to try out their Four Cheese Pizza. :p
People who loves to eat are always the best people.
