Soup, Salad, Pasta and Meatballs at California Pizza Kitchen

There's more to California Pizza Kitchen than its creative and flavorful California-inspired pizzas. A whole lot more...

CPK offers a variety of comforting soups, fresh salads, and sandwiches to complement its line of distinct pizzas. Here's some of them...

Start with California Pizza Kitchen's signature soups, the Mushroom Cappuccino (P 195), a thick and creamy wild mountain mushroom soup topped with milk froth and nutmeg...

...or the fresh and tangy Tomato Soup (P 195), CPK's twist on tomato soup with non-fat yogurt, parsley, scallions, and baked Parmesan cheese flakes. Each is a refreshing and new take on the classic and comforting soup dish, with that distinct CPK style. 

And you can't go wrong with CPK's fresh salads. California Pizza Kitchen's new Evergreen Salad (P 435 Full/P 245 Half), a fresh mesclun of arugula, mixed greens, roasted almond flakes, dried cranberries, baked Parmesan cheese flakes, and  cherry tomatoes tossed in a light yet flavorful orange herb vinaigrette. Fresh, clean flavors, and a perfect start to any meal at CPK. California Pizza Kitchen offers a variety of fresh salads, but if you're looking for a classic salad dish with balanced flavors, our server, Zada, recommended this one. And a good choice too. 

The Seafood Pomodoro (P 575), flat spinach fettuccine in rich Pomodoro sauce with plump shrimps, squid, red and yellow peppers, mushrooms, and drizzled with Parmesan. Hearty and filling, a squeeze of lemon adds just the right sharpness for balanced flavors. 

California Pizza Kitchen's new Italian Meatball Sandwich (P 450, beefy meatballs with melted Mozzarella and Queso Quesadilla on freshly baked focaccia bread and served with a side of crisp homemade fries drizzled with Parmesan.

The classic meatballs with marinara and cheese always works for me, conjuring up images of comforting meals so many childhood summers. And this one's pretty good. A freshly baked focaccia that's just lightly crisp on the outside and soft and fluffy inside does the job of absorbing the rich sauce and cheese. And the meatballs are great too. With a side of thick skin-on fries drizzled with parmesan, this one;s a meal in itself.

CPK's new Lemon Cake Like No Other (P 345), a moist cake with a sweet lemon filling topped with a rich and smooth scoop of vanilla ice cream with bits of fresh lemon rind and a side of whipped cream, a fitting ending to a feast at California Pizza Kitchen. As with all CPK branches, service is great, just look for Zada and she'll take good care of you. Great food, great service...just what you'd expect from California Pizza Kitchen.
