Lift. Fold. Bite. That’s the mantra that is recited here in Mikey’s Original New York Pizza. With an extensive selection of pizzas to be devoured, the ultimate spotlight this time around was on the 9-1-1 pizza.
Dubbed as the spiciest pizza in Asia, this is not for the faint hearted. Practise on countless servings of some of the spiciest curries and sambals throughout our entire lives dwarfed in comparison to this spicy delight which is topped with Ghost Peppers, the world’s spiciest pepper in 2007 and 400 times hotter than Tabasco sauce.
Thankfully though, we did not opt to try the 9-1-1 challenge; finish the entire 18’’ pie within 40 minutes, and walk away RM500 richer, albeit with a trip to the restroom pretty soon.
Truth be told, we could not even finish a slice of it, let alone to attempt the challenge itself. Bottles of salt which are placed at every table here in Mikey’s offered a brief respite, but nowhere near enough to combat the heat. At times, we felt that we were giving birth to Mordor in our mouths (This one’s for you, LOTR fans).
If the spice is not your cup of tea, then the house favourite Tony Soprano is a welcoming alternative. Topped with meatballs, pepperoni and roasted peppers, and held together with mozzarella cheese, this is one hearty treat for pizza lovers.
The Loco Mexicano offers diners a welcoming hint of South American flavours with a subtle touch of heat. The addition of sour cream adds body to the pizza, and cuts through the rich, gooey cheese. Together with tender cuts of chicken or beef, this is an interesting addition to the menu here in Mikey’s.
If you’re looking to kick start your appetite for the day, then the waffle fries is a must have. The Queens 2.0 is topped with buffalo sauce and homemade ranch dressing, which is the perfect companion alongside an A&W Root Beer Float (RM 8.44).
Until we return and this time around actually attempt the 9-1-1 challenge, keep lifting, folding and biting away at Mikey’s Original New York Pizza.
Oh and did we mention, the streets of Bangsar accommodates loads of Pokemon’s too! So get some ‘cardio’ done, and indulge in some delightful pizzas, after all, we’ve gotta eat em’all right?
