Mikey’s New York Pizza @ Bangsar
When thinking of pizza, one often relates it to the Italians or the Americans. The idea of probably arise from who makes them and the widely influenced American TV shows portraying regular consumption of pizza as a quick and simple food in the states. Because pizzas are made popular by the Italians, we’d either relate to that or the misconception of huge consumption of pizzas by the Americans. No doubt pizzas are quick and easy and sometimes delicious as well, the driving factor is the convenience of pizza delivery to your doorsteps. But when on the go and at fast moving pace, slices of pizza became real popular in New York and now the idea has been brought over to KL except most people would still prefer dining in and order pizzas in slices instead of whole pies here at the Mikey’s New York Pizza.
This fancy pizza cafe is located in Bangsar, and the pizza slices targets a different customer market than what’s supposedly on the go. Diners would order from counter and food would be served to your table following a fancy number plate commonly appearing in intagram feeds from almost all who visited this place.
Focusing on their menu, pizza choices might not be at abundance but sufficient to trigger your taste bud. Tony soprano (RM15.88) and the Classic New Yoke (RM 8.88) slice certainly is charming with the classic blend of cheese melted over fresh tomato sauce typically finished with some herbs. The first was a classic collaboration of both Italian and American specialties; meatballs, sliced steak, pepperoni, roasted peppers and roasted garlic, topped with mozzarella cheese. And it was little posh in term of price for a slice. The second being a classic thus expect lots of flavours from the blend of melted cheese and temporarily leave aside the guilt.
Wild mushroom pizza (RM 10.88) was the champ of the day with the smoky and earthiness aroma of wild mushroom and of course topped with generous amount of mozzarella cheese. Sink into a mix of shitake, oyster and Portobello mushrooms all sautéed in butter, olive oil, fresh basil and spread on top of fresh tomato sauce.
Offering pizzas in slices would mean tasting different flavours but if you dine in a huge group, ordering a whole pizza would add so much joy and excitement. When ordering a whole pizza, prices could look a bit hefty in the range of RM 50++ to RM 88++ depending on the flavours ordered. Half and half pies are available but check out the size of the pizza and tell me if you are not thrilled with the measurement. Pie size gaugable from the photo thanks to the lovely Nicole in the photo.
An additional option for communal eating is their Bronx Waffle Fries (RM15.88). Probably one of the very few places to sell waffle fries, it wasn’t too bad with the old school mix of meatballs, Mikey’s signature marina sauce and mozzarella cheese melted on top.
If you are following me on Instagram or Facebook, you’ll see my post on KFC ‘ S latest addition to their menu; waffle fries with cheese and mayonnaise topping and some might find that more of a joy to eat. Mozarella cheese topping contributes a lot to the chewiness in general and sauce turns crispy waffle fries soggy after awhile.
Beverage was nothing too impressive with the ordinary usual choices of Soft drinks, some kids cocktails, and a range of homemade specials comprising of tea and soda. Lemonade sells at RM 8 but was a decent choice to go with pizzas.
I wouldn’t call this a hipster restaurant but the décor and interior is worth a bit of appraisal since tiny efforts can be seen some corners but having located at this busy traffic area, parking is never a breeze.
Mickey’s Original Pizza might not be the perfect pizza but was a decent choice for pizza around this area.
