I love pizza but I’m not adventurous when it comes to it. I usually only order the pepperoni or the Hawaiian, and only eat unconventional flavors when someone orders it. I believe that you shouldn’t fix what ain’t broke, and those two variants are more than enough for me.
So I was skeptical when Yellow Cab invited me to try their new line of pizzas, named the 5 Boroughs Pizza, inspired by the five legendary boroughs in New York City: Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island. And boy was I wrong. Whatever happened to trying something new every now and then? I’m glad I did because I ended up loving them.
Here’s what I thought of Yellow Cab’s 5 Boroughs Pizzas:
Bronx Creamy Mushroom Pizza
The Bronx Creamy Mushroom Pizza is a creamy mix of mushroom, chicken, olives, and green bell peppers. There’s a generous amount of white sauce and you’ll love this if you love carbonara.
Manhattan Steak & Eggs Pizza
The Manhattan Steak & Eggs Pizza is a combo of steak strips and eggs, drizzled with steak sauce and topped with onions and green bell peppers. It’s a heavy and decadent treat but I like the flavor of the steak sauce, which is complemented by the egg.
Brooklyn Spicy Seafood Pizza
For something a little hot, you can try the Brooklyn Spicy Seafood Pizza. It has spicy Jalapeño peppers, shrimps, crabsticks, onions, green bell peppers, tomatoes, and capers. The flavors all pop up together, held together by a little heat. Still tolerable for those who are sensitive to spicy food.
Queens Oriental Chicken Pizza
As a fan of Hawaiian pizza, I gravitated towards this. The Queens Oriental Chicken Pizza has chicken, mushrooms, onions, and pineapple, topped with spring onions and cilantro, with a sweet and tangy Oriental sauce base. This would have to be my favorite!
Staten Island Basil & Ricotta Pizza
Yellow Cab reinvents the classic Margherita Pizza with its Staten Island Basil & Ricotta Pizza, which combines crushed tomatoes topped with three kinds of cheese and basil. The tangy taste of the crushed tomatoes is the main flavor so get this if you’re a fan of the fruit.
All these pizzas are available at all Yellow Cab branches, including the newly-opened Paseo De Magallanes, from September 5, 2018 to January 31, 2019. These are available for dine-in, takeout, and delivery. All pizzas are P499 for regular size pizza, P759 for large, and P999 for the New Yorker size. And from September 17 to 30, you can get any of the 5 Boroughs Pizzas for only P1 if you order a 14″ New York’s Finest!
