I recommended the CPK to my friend some time ago because it was my favourite pizza and I deemed it as the best pizza I could get in town. I even brought him there once. Though it was quite faraway, being the only outlet and it’s in Suria KLCC!
Later on, he visited the Vivo Pizza at The Curve and he was telling it was as good as CPK. So, he doesn’t need to go all the way to Suria KLCC for good pizza. Though at that time, I was not hungry and tempted by him to try Vivo, because I believed that CPK still holds the key to the best pizza in town. Until this particular evening, I was hanging around in The Curve with my friend and can’t think of anything for dinner. Hence we stepped into Vivo Pizza to give it a shot and judge for myself whether my friend was lying to me or just simply to lure me to have some bad pizzas.
… the self-service-fill-in-the-form-yourself kind of service reminded me of those HK style cafe. This is what distinguish CPK from this el-cheapo place. Waitresses are hired meant to serve the patrons, not to pick the order slip from the patrons!
… the font they used on bottom left looked familiar.
… our set includes a cup of 100 plus. The taste, very bland. Was it bottomless like CPK? Nope, but I’m sure as hell, it’s cheaper as well, because the place just plain cheap.
… I do admit these garlic breads smell good, but they don’t taste as good as they smell.
… some seafood pasta, the sauce tasted sweet.
… man, look at the size of those capsicums! I don’t think I’d say this is a quality piece of pizza. The place was not even packed with people, why would the chef be so lazy to cut up those capsicums nicely? Huh? HUH?!
The only reason why this place is getting 3.5 is because it’s cheaper than CPK. The taste? It’s as good as how the pictures looked. I’d never go back there again. Even if someone buys me, I might have to contemplate about it. I think my regular Canadian Pizza tastes even better. Hey, I’m paying a good 10% service charge for them to pick up the order slip from my hand. They don’t even have to memorise the order, for crying out loud! Heck, if I want a good meal, I’ll just walk across and enter PHOP.
