Rice Pizza Anyone?

Found this place one day after a long day of shopping … Rice Pizza – weird right? But after thinking about it for a bit, it could work – I mean, pizza is made out of flour and with the ‘right’ ingredients; you can eat whatever pizza toppings with rice! You can have beef teriyaki with rice… although ham and pineapple with rice doesn’t sound too appealing does it?

Hubby was pretty keen to try this place, so we thought – why not. The menu is pretty much all pizza, where East meets West – different types of pizza, ranging from the traditional ham and pineapple, beef teriyaki to chicken with mango, and strawberry with ebi rice pizza – Sound gross right? But I was told that the strawberry ebi rice pizza was supposedly good and a popular dish – however, we thought we would order something more simple and less adventurous (i.e. strawberry with ebi pizza) .

Hubby ordered these fruit juices in test tubes… Kyoho grape juice, which was presented in four tubes stuck into a mountain of shaved ice. It was interesting to say the least.. the grape juice were grapey and a little too sweet for my liking. Hubby seemed to have enjoyed them.

We ordered the chicken and mango rice pizza and pork katsu. Pork katsu came first and it was quite ordinary I have to say. Pork was tender but the coating was a bit bland.. even with the hoisin sauce it still wasn’t that great. I was craving pork curry and was hoping it be, but alas, it was just deep fried pork with a bit of hoisin sauce.

The rice pizza took a while to come, and when it finally arrived…. I have to say – it was pretty good. The base was made out of rice, baked in an oven like a normal pizza. The crust (rice) was thin and was topped with chicken pieces, mango, onions, capsicum and covered in cheese. The combination of all was tasty – the sweetness from the mango, the cheesiness from the cheese, and the crunchiness of onions and capsicum – it definitely was an interesting and fun way of eating pizza. Who would have thought of using rice as base?

I have read mix reviews about this – some love it and some hate it – I didn’t think it was too bad, it was fun to say the least! So if you want to try something different give it ago. The rice pizza is the main dish here, however, I have seen others ordering salad and it looks pretty good.
