Mikey's New York Pizza, Publika


The first time I went to this place was for a friend's surprised birthday celebration. I google it before hand to know where and what will they serve at this joint. As simple as the name stated, its pizza. But not your average pizza hut & dominos, it is more to the new yorker styled pizzas. Thin crust with big portion of slices. Yes, they serve by slices. I have always imagining myself living like the new yorkers with their big slices of pizza that needed two hands to eat it and a glass of cold drink.

My bestfriend and his fiance.

To show how big is the 18-inch pizza compare to a human being. Haha

Well it seems that I can now fulfill my imagination. *cough* It is not that difficult to find the place as if you were lost, you can just find directions from people inside the publika mall. That is how I did. Okay now lets talk pizza.

They have 9 different flavours ranging from RM8.88 per slice and up to RM15.88. They also sell whole pizza which they called it as whole pie pizza, ranging from RM59.88 and up to RM88.88.

CLASSIC NEW YORK PIZZA & 
MEATBALL PIZZA

BUFFALO CHICKEN PIZZA &
BBQ CHICKEN PIZZA

THE TONY SOPRANO &
SWEET HAWAIAN PIZZA

Some of the topping can be as simple as just plain mix of cheese (classic new york pizza) to the spiciest in Asia known as The 9-1-1 Pizza which contains one and only cili api with cheese. I dare you to try this. Haha ! My favourite would be The Tony Soprano and The meatballs pizza.

They also have what they called as upgrades. Its like a package when you buy by slices or pie, with additional charges you can get drinks and fries. One more thing about their fries is not like our average french fries, they use waffle-cut fries with 5 choices of topping and dipping sauce named after countries like Houstan and Brooklyn.

I'll share you the menu, because menu is what I always look for first thing before going to a new place. Just to prepare my wallet. 

This is the upgrade I was talking about.

And not to be missed is their Boneless Buffalo Wings, what's not to be loved when it is boneless right? 8-pcs of boneless wings coated with bread crumbs and Mikey's signature buffalo sauce. Munch it all without having your hands dirty. I warned you, the wings is a bit spicy and sour. Kinda like tangy at the back of your throat. Trying eating it first and then try dipping in the house-made blue cheese. Tengok boleh pergi atau tak. Haha.

The decoration of the place is based on New York's enviroment, in my opinion why I said this, was  because the frames hanging by the wall with pictures of newspaper cut by The New York Times and famous people of NY of course. But the people work there is not from New York. Hehe.

The decoration. Can be seated up to 20 pax.

Our seating of the night. See the frames? 
Full of beautiful scenery of New York.

The order counter. Order first, pay and eat.

Due to the awesomeness of the whole thing. I went for second for my cousin's and my sister's birthday celebration.

Happy birthday sister, cousin amy and his friend amy yoshi.

KGB (Killer Gourmet Burger), Bangsar

Once, McD was it for burgers. The best of the best. Then came Burger Bakar Abang Burn or maybe the one in Wangsa Maju (though I had only taste the one located at seksyen 7). Now I can say that I've found the best among the best for burger joint. Thanks to my bff Adel, for bringing me to KGB, which stands for Killer Gourmet Burger situated in Bangsar, for my birthday treat. She was very convincing that this joint was the bomb !

I've been here twice already and would come for third. The burgers here have both chicken and beef either crust seared (beef), grill (chicken/beef) and fried (chicken). Besides that, they even have Vegetarian Burgers. Not to worry all you vegetariansss out thereeee. You can still enjoy it here.

When I first visited here, I ordered the TORNADO CHICKEN. A fulfilling grilled chicken, crunchy onion rings, runny sunny-side up egg and buffalowing aoilo. At first glance, it looks like normal burger with upgrades but as you bite into it, all the juicy-ness from the chicken and the eggs run through your fingers ! Trust me its going to be a messy dish. It's way different from your normal burger. But sadly, no picture on this particular burger to show as we were so hungry and forgot about snapping pictures. Please do give a try for this one.

On second visit, thought of getting the same one but think again, why not try other menu right? So I went for KGB SPIKED - crust seared beef, sharp cheddar, crispy beef bacon and KGB spicy sauce. According to its definition, I was thinking of something that is spicy and juicy, but it turns out slightly lesser than what I have imagined. The meat not even juicy but passable and I can't taste the spicy sauce. A bit dissapointed though.

KGB Spiked - RM 15.90

My sister had the CLUB - grilled chicken, fresh avocado, egg salad, chicken crisps and herbed ranch. She said it was okay. The reason she pickes this was to try and taste the avocado. She can taste a bit of sweetness in it and due to major hunger, she let it slideee.

CLUB (chicken) - RM 18.90

But one thing for sure, if you ever come cross to this joint, please please please order their TEXAS JALAPENO STEAK & CHEESE (beef/chicken) ! It may seems like chilli cheese fries but this was off the roof ! Really good and really full and it was hard to explain through words. A bucket full of hot fries, generous amount of sour cream, a handful of chicken/beef and a glorious sea of cheeseeeeeeeeee and top it off with jalapeno to complete it ! Every bite is magical ! *drooling and craving for it now*

TEXAS JALAPENO STEAK & CHEESE - RM 14.90

To go here, make sure you park accordingly as the parking area is a bit limited. I had to park inside Bangsar Village II and walk all the way to KGB. But it was worth it. It might be a bit expensive but once in a month won't hurt. As KGB said, "Life is too short for a bad burger" :)
