Get into that California state of mind at CPK
At CPK, it’s all about having that much needed “California State Of Mind”. This concept is about mixing cultures, sharing experiences and taking adventure through food. And being true to its roots, CPK brings the California spirit in every dish.
For starters, Mexicali and Fruit N’ Nut salads are sure to brighten any veggie monster’s day (like me)!
This dish is packed with roasted corn, black bean Chipotle salsa, avocado and jalapeño, giving it the distinct bold and fresh flavors of Mexico. It is served with corn tortillas on the side, too. This salad swept me off my feet! I wiped the whole platter clean! Veggie lovers must try this when enjoying a California State Of Mind at CPK.
Fruit N’ Nut (Php275.00)
A colorful array of mixed fruits of avocado, mango and watermelon with walnuts and almonds tossed in fresh orange herb vinaigrette dressing. This fruity and nutty salad will definitely refresh you on a hot humid day!
Steak Mushroom + Truffle (Reg: Php695 / Personal: Php375)
If I wasn’t sharing this pizza with my fellow foodie buddies, I’d probably finish half of it! This California State Of Mind at CPK specialty has grilled steak slices, button mushrooms and black truffle cream sauce, giving this pizza that wow factor!
Baja Pizza (Php545)
This one is a true Mexicali pizza loaded with mozzarella, red onions, tomatoes, jalapeños and avocado drizzled with Baja sauce and mayo-Chipotle dressing. You can even choose between chicken or shrimp toppings. The colors remind me of Christmas, wouldn’t you agree?
Caramelized Apple, Bacon and Gorgonzola (Reg: Php375 / Personal: Php225)
This has got to be the men’s favorite pizza! It has that trifecta of flavors: sweet, salty and strong which made it absolutely fun to eat.
Vegetable Primavera (Sharing: Php495 / Personal: Php275)
*Add Grilled Chicken Breast for Php175
This California State Of Mind at CPK pasta dish really reminds me of summer because zucchini and bell pepper are some of my favorite summer vegetables. It also has mushrooms, carrots, broccoli and cherry tomatoes in sun-dried tomato oil. It has a clean, uncomplicated flavor and is a great source of nutrients needed for good health.
If you want something with a kick, order this! California State Of Mind at CPK’s version has black olives, capers, cherry tomatoes and roasted garlic. This dish has a nice balance between the sauce and the pasta while the simple ingredients that make it up give it an absolutely satisfying taste.
Before ending your meal, try CPK’s desserts. A choice between the Salted Chocolate Cake with Caramel Sauce or the Queso de Bola Cheesecake.
Salted Chocolate Cake with Caramel Sauce (Php245)
This slice of dark chocolate cake won me over by a mile because of the Kosher salt and candied walnuts! This is literally a nice play on sweet and salty flavors. Rich but not overwhelming and something I would consider to be a pleasant meal ender.
Queso de Bola Cheesecake (Php350)
This California State Of Mind at CPK dessert is made of Edam cheesecake and topped with cashew brittle. A dessert that reminds me of Christmas yet again!
