Skippy’s Pizza (Damansara Uptown) – The Real Pork Pizza Co.
This new comer in Damansara Uptown isn’t exactly a newbie for those who love pork pizza. Following the success of the first outlet within Phileo Damansara, Skippy’s Pizza is now flipping and tossing their pizzas at the second outlet in Damansara Uptown. Like the first outlet, this one is simple but smart, with cool Aussie decors within the outlet. Separating both indoor and outdoor is a smart move- dining in is much comfortable neat compared to my earlier experience at the first outlet.
Starting with heavily spiced Chili Mussels (RM 30) and claimed to go well with Garlic Buns (RM 10), I reckoned this doesn’t warrant such high demand: gravy was a let down by a greasy texture.
Freshly baked pizza should be the mouth’s new best friend- a thin, slightly charred base all covered in melted mozzarella and spiced up with such texture of soft and rich, runny and crunchy and salty and sweet. The base doesn’t get soggy fast, so take your time to savour maximum flavour at minimum fuss. It’ll be your best friend until it when you reach the meatball. But I really didn’t mind the extra meat. A 9” pizza cost less than RM 30, and every bite is loaded with toppings.
Throw away all carb-caution and take note the pasta dishes are huge in portion; they are all good to share in a group. Pasta texture isn’t al dante but is packed with flavours, you’d find yourself eating the Carbonara (RM 17.90) easier than the Aglio Olio with Bacon (RM 16.90); the latter is a total fiery indulgence for spicy food lover.
And unlike most burgers, this one here doesn’t offer a wide variety of toppings nor does it play around with their bun instead, you get a dainty serving of a huge bun sandwiching a luscious patty of pork or lamb (RM 14.90/ RM 16.90) with very little lettuce or cheese or everything it is that is common inside a burger, alongside a bunch of fries to fill into the rest of the plate. Probably to avoid reaching overkill and have all attention focused on their particular strength – their meat patty.
Also serving sides that are perfect as pub grub- the addictive luxuriously thick sauce on the Pork Ribs in 7 Sauces (RM 25) can be charming but I’ve deliberated, and digested many amazing ribs I stopped at the first rib( 10 ribs preserving).
And with the dense variety of food in this enclave, the appetite for great value food has never been bigger. With the perpetual increase of living costs, knowing where to find a good budget meal is more important than ever (affordability can be very subjective). Also, the huge menu can be intimidating. Stick to Pizza and pasta for the best results.
