Shakey's Pizza Parlor in California, USA

In Manila, my family's no. 1 midnight snack of choice is Shakey's thin crust pizza with Mojos. Right after we visited Griffith Observatory here in Los Angeles some days ago, we were famished and drove around trying to find a place to have a late lunch. Our GPS showed a lot of Shakey's branches in the area and so we decided to give the original a try. :)

Shakey's Pizza Parlor California USAShakey's USA's interiors has the same color scheme as the branches we have in Manila. I just found this particular outlet more spacious.

Tasty mojo potatoes are topped with sour cream, olives, salsa, melted cheeses, crispy bacon, and green onions. It's sooo good. I think my son wolfed down half the plate. I wish they'd serve this in the Philippines.

We all agreed that it's really delicious. Even my 6-year old daughter who previously only ate cheese pizza was converted to a fan of this flavor. It's huge too -- 12 big slices, there were six of us and we couldn't finish it. It's surprisingly non-greasy too. The underside of the pizza was matte, not a trace of oil when we held a slice! :)

If you ever find yourself in the US, do give Shakey's a try. You'll be pleasantly surprised. To find an outlet near you, log on to http://www.shakeys.com/.

P.S. This is my first food blog using the Sony NEX-5 camera which I'm going to review and I'm still in the process of getting used to it.
