Pizza Drama at Papa's Cafe, Kuta, Bali
Want a dinner with a side of drama? You got it!
This was the most dramatic pizza I've ever had!
It was surely a feast for my eyes, quenched my thirst for drama, but did it do wonders on my tongue?
We started off with something spicy. Grilled bacon wrapped green chillis stuffed with cream cheese. It wasn't really spicy, but it was tasty. Hmmm, anything wrapped in bacon and stuffed with cheese's bound to be tasty, right? A great combo!
The Pomodoro e Basilico soup, served with pesto toast...very tomatoey and you can really smell the fragrance of basil. It was one of the best tomato soup I've ever had.
The lobster bisque served with mozzarella toast on the other hand, was rather bland, it was so underseasoned, we almost had it with a side of table salt.
Now...are you ready for the drama?
...and let it begin...this looks nothing like the large meat lovers I normally order from Pizza Hut...
Call 999, my pizza is on fire!!!
The top comes off after it was perfectly scorched, and we had this goodness underneath. The Kintamani Volcano Pizza boasts Beef Ham, Sausage, and Beef Salami, with mozzarella cheese and tomato based sauce. The highlight of the pizza was of course, the thin and perfectly chewy crust...you can totally eat the mushroom-like top as well!
We were totally starved after a day (of lying around and shopping) at Kuta beach...so we ordered a good ol' classic lasagna. How was it? Hmmm, it's decent, but I've had better.
We should've ordered based on the drama of the dishes...we were rather upset we didn't get to order this dish...we were gawking at it, all green with envy...
She said "Grandma! That's yours!". From the back of her head, I could tell that grandma was a little flabbergasted. She was probably thinking..."I miss those days when food was just food, and the only drama queen was me"
Nothing ends such a meal better than chocolate. Hell, nothing ends or starts anything better than chocolate.
So, we ordered the Warm Chocolate Cake, which was voted the best in Bali in 2005. Clearly, 2005 is a lot different from 2009, as the warm cake presented to us was indeed...unwarm. It was good, but if it was the best in Bali...then Bali should probably learn to do better.
Now, if you are easily disgusted, or just had your dinner...please refrain from viewing below picture. Consider yourself warned....
I just had had had to do this. It's practically a ritual!
For better entertainment...request your cheesiest love songs. The band will serenade 'em beautifully for you, and they'd thank you in at least fivelanguages: Indonesian, English, Chinese, Japanese, Korean.
