I've always been a fan of Yellow Cab though we don't have a branch in my hometown back then. I remember travelling up to 2 hours just to get a taste of their great pizzas, because the nearest branch happens to be in Baguio City. Oh The things I'll do for some good pizza.
Yellow Cab Pizza Co. also has good stuff happening to all people from the South, especially to those who are around Gen. Trias Cavite!
Yellow Cab's latest branch is located at EPZA-Tejero Bypass Road (Centennial), Brgy. Bacao II, Gen. Trias Cavite, they already had their soft opening last October 31, 2015.
And, last November 4 was their Pizzarrefic grand opening which I was invited together with two fellow bloggers and Ms. Irene Layno of Yellow Cab Team. We arrived around 12 noon to a busy store since it was already lunch time. The store isn't that big, I believe it can accomodate up to 30 diners only at a time. But they set up an extension outside to accomodate more, since they also have some opening promotion for diners.
No matter how busy, we were welcomed warmly by the friendly staffs and our needs were attended accordingly. While waiting for our foods to be served, we began with the pizza making activity. The activity was set by 2 batches, 2 bloggers at a time and my 2 fellow bloggers went in first. The other blogger didn't make it to the event so it was just me for the second batch.
I was a bit nervous at first but eventually enjoyed making my own pizza, the Yellow Cab way! I was taught and assisted by sir Franco to make one of their best seller pizza, the New York's Finest which happens to be one of my favorite. Yey!
The pizza dough was already prepared so we just did the toppings, which are the following:
1. Pizza Sauce
2. Mozzarella and Parmesan Cheese
6. Ground Beef
9. Red and Green Bell Peppers
12. Italian Sausage
13. Mozzarella and Parmesan Cheese
I'm not really sure if I got the spices in the right order but what I do know is that each of them comes in generous amount. Each spices are weighed and are carefully patterned with the goal of covering the entire dough up to the crust with toppings. And, that's what makes their pizza really great compared to other pizzas wherein the toppings are mostly just around the center leaving the edges of the crust empty. Aside from learning I definitely had fun especially on the part where Sir Franco told me to toss the Italian Sausage with feelings, as if I'm mad haha. I wasn't so sure if he was just joking or he really meant it, but I did what he said anyway (lol).
After filling the crust with toppings, here's what it looked like.
Ready to be baked in the oven for 5 minutes under 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
While waiting, I had a quick lunch, Charlie Chan Chicken Pasta and Hot wings!
Finally my pizza is done and I get to slice it too!
Ooooh! It looks deliciously gorgeous!
After the pizza making, we got the chance to meet and have a small talk with the owners, Dr. Leonard Lao (wearing blue polo) and Dr. Ismael Mercado (wearing yellow polo) of Divine Grace Medical Center.
Picture with the owners, fellow bloggers and staffs
When asked why they chose to franchise Yellow Cab, Dr. Mercado answered:
"We do believe in the company, and whenever we go to Manila or elsewhere we would always hang around Yellow Cab so we thought why not just bring it here!"
Now they don't have to go far just to relax and hang out because their store is just very accessible to the hospital where they work.
The Store opening was indeed a Pizzarrific success, thank you so much for having us!
