CPK PMC blogger event

As a part of the Phoenix Market City food blogging event, in association with Chennai food Guide, went to California Pizza Kitchen.

As this is one of my usual jaunts I was excited to try things that I normally would not order by myself.
We ordered drinks first and i choose a strawberry lemonade.

First up was the Thai Crunch salad, which is listed with chicken on the menu and therefore I’ve never tried it. But i was told that day that all of the non veg items on the menu can be made veg!!! How cool is that!!

Then got to try the black bean quesadilla, which was also good.

image

Had the lettuce wrap next, this uses lettuce leaves to hold the veggies in while you roll it up and eat. Very tasty and refreshing.

Finally another salad, can’t remember the correct name! It had nuts and dates and had lots of flavor.

First pizza we tried was the Tostada which is one of CPK signature dishes. It’s a hot and cold pizza, where the pizza is hot and has a topping of cold lettuce.

Next was the kasuri paneer pizza, this was very flavorful. The paneer had a good flavor and texture and it blended well with the other toppings.

We also had the Greek pizza, which was topped with olives and feta. It had good flavor and very filling.
For desserts we ended up having Tiramisu and the white chocolate strawberry cheesecake. Both of which are very good and what I usually get. 🙂

Jonah’s goes to Japan, PMC blogger event

Chennai Food Guide in association with Phoenix Market City organized a food blogging event showcasing a few of the restaurants in Phoenix mall.

Jonah’s goes to Japan was our first stop for this event. I had never been to this place before and was looking forward to the experience there. We were introduced to the staff and the chefs at the restaurant and they had laid out quite an extensive menu for is to cover.

Looking at the menu I realized that my veg options were few, but the staff said they wld ensure I had enough to try.

image

We started off with a paneer appetizer, it had a good flavor to it although I found the paneer itself to be a little tough.

image

Then moved on to a crossaintwich, the roasted veggies had a good flavor and also had a bit of a crunch which enhanced the overall flavor.

image

Next I was served a pesto pasta, the pesto was very good and tasted very fresh. The basil and walnut flavors came thru and I did enjoy this pasta quite a bit.

There was also steak served for the meat eaters and I saw they got mashed potatoes along with it. It looked soo good I asked for a serving for myself and it was just so creamy and so yumm!!

Finally we got sushi, the orange crusted one was a seafood variety and the other 2 veg. The sushi was very good and very well made. The wasabi and the ginger also were good. I really did enjoy the sushi a lot especially since the wasabi did a fabulous job of clearing my sinuses 🙂

Sinuses clear I could now tackle the desserts, the desserts here come from Pondicherry. We tried the opera cake which was ok as the wafer portion tasted a little odd.

I forgot the name of this one! It was good, it had an internal filling of some  berries compote.

Definitely worth going here, especially for the sushi.
