US Pizza has recently opened a new branch in Bukit Mertajam. Fans of US Pizza staying in mainland need not travel all the way to the island to satisfy the crave of pizza.
The new outlet is new and has a very cozy and comfortable ambiance. As the name sounds, it has a typical American restaurant interior.
Each pizza is hand-pressed and hand-rolled by the kitchen staff. This is the reason that the time taken for each of the pizza here is longer than usual.
Crazi Garlic Twist – RM4.95, This is one of my favorites finger food while waiting for our pizza.
Similar to Cinnamon Twist Bread, the difference is that the garlic twist is coated with butter and packed with garlic aroma. I prefer garlic twist over cinnamon twist as the taste of saltiness and butter is well-balanced.
Golden Ocean Salted Egg Pizza – RM28 (Regular), RM38 (Large). This is a newly launched pizza inspired by the recent salted egg yolk food craze. Besides having the rich and aromatic salted egg yolk topping, there were chunks of squids and shrimps with curry leaves and red chili to top it off.
All the while I have never been a fan of salted egg yolk. But the first bite of this pizza really changed my perception. The taste of salted egg was not too overwhelming and it was well-mixed with mayo, cheese, salted egg yolk and with a hint of spiciness This is one of the dishes that I will be going back for.
Seafood Mixed Fried Platter Set – RM36.95. Served with deep fried battered shrimps, calamari rings, fish and chips and some veggie.
This platter is another new dish which has yet to be launched. This dish is a regular type of seafood platter which is ideal to be shared with a family of 4-6.
Overall, the new launching of salted egg pizza has beat the rest of the pizza and become the top in my list. This is a successful innovation.
