Mexifornia Festival at CPK

California Pizza Kitchen, Indiranagar, Bangalore is celebrating the Mexifornia 2014 festival with a variety of new dishes. At the bloggers’ meet there to review the menu, I was amazed the spread they had to offer!

We started with mocktails and CPK Nachos. For the starters they we were presented with a new concept where we can create our own tapas platter by choosing a base, topping, sauce and garnish and have our choice Mexican appetizer. Each of us gave a different combination and it was a wild experience tasting the different starters.

My choice: Flat Tostada for base, Southern chicken for topping and spicy tomato as sauce. Well, it disappeared fast!

Five varieties of pizzas are on menu. A good combination of veg and non-veg toppings, different kind of sauces, all on thin crust and regular crust versions are available. With a slight variation in the toppings and sauces you can imagine the scope of experiment there.

One unique variety I had here had egg as topping. It was a first time for me. Spicy but simple, this pizza has minced chicken, whole eggs and red bell peppers garnished with scallions. Eggeterians can opt for veggies instead of chicken.

.

Baja Fish in Banana Leaf: Baja marinated Basa fish wrapped in banana leaf and baked in oven. This was my favorite.The vegetables were well cooked and nicely spiced and fish tasted awesomely good!

Tex Mex Fajita with either chicken or with panner. It is a wonderful dish with sauteed onions, bell peppers and shredded chicken or paneer tossed in soy sauce and fajita spice, wrapped in homemade tortillas, served with sides of guacamole, sour cream and roasted tomato salsa.

CPK desserts are deadly! I always wonder why I don’t start from the last. This Coconut Lime Tres Leches Cake was jucilicious. It was light and fluffy in texture with flavors of coconut and lime.

Apple Enchiladas took me by surprise, more because of its crispiness. The dish had crisp wonton sheets with apple compote and Philadelphia cheese fried until sweet and golden brown, served with apple sauce and vanilla ice cream.

Our blogger meet organizer, with a sweet smiling face always.
