Review: Skippys Pizza - The Real Pork Pizza Co. Restaurant

>> Tuesday, March 26, 2013

Overall comment: Interesting & delicious pizzas that comes with pork! For more information on their promotions, head on to their website & find out for yourselves the load of good deals that Skippys Pizza offers!
Halal: No

Where can you find pork pizza around PJ...and have it delivered to your house as well?? More often than not, when we talk about pizza, most people around the Klang Valley will just name 2 brands: Pizza Hut & Domino's Pizza. Skippys Pizza has been around for 2 years & it started as a pork pizza delivery brand, but it now has a cozy restaurant at Phileo Damansara 1 for those who would prefer to enjoy their pizza, burgers, pasta, sandwiches, rice, noodles & more at a restaurant! Yeap, it's not just a pork pizza place ;)


 Simple deco

Promotions - it offers Western AND Asian

Skippy offers various promotions regularly, so you're really spoilt for choice at this humble restaurant :)



Ice Lemon Tea
Nothing special. I don't think it's "home-made" :P

We were served a banquet of food to feast on 'til we were all stuffed! Here's what I managed to try....

Green Salad (RM9.00/serving)
Dig into a satisfying "garlic/onion-fragrant" salad with Romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and onions. It's quite pungent & will not be something that those who dislike raw garlic/onion will enjoy.

Skippy Special Lamb Pizza (RM33.90/12" serving)
If you're a fan of lamb, this pizza is for you! I'm really surprised & delighted to find that this lamb pizza didn't have that strong "lamb/mutton smell" that could put people off! Australian lamb it is....yums! You'll find lamb meatballs, bell peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, onions and olives on this cheesy pizza :D Thumbs up!

Meat Lovers (RM32.00/12" serving; RM26.00/9" serving)
As its name speaks, this pizza is for meat lovers, especially pork-lovers! The pizza is loaded with pork bacon, pork ham, pork pepperoni, minced pork and BBQ sauce. It's pork-overload! Where else can you get something like this?? :D

Not too thick-crust, not too thin-crust - just right ;)

 Marc's Special (RM32.00/12" serving; RM26.00/9" serving)
When I first saw this pizza, I was drawn to it...egg yolk oozing outta the pizza!! Don't worry, it's cooked egg-yolk, not half-boiled/cooked yolk...The lovely egg compliments the pork ham, baby spinach, mushrooms & olives on this classic tomato-sauce pizza. Oh-so-lovely!

More/thicker toppings than the crust - the way I like it!

  Rack of Pork Ribs with Fries & Salad (RM23.90/serving)
Flavourful rack of ribs that is large enough for sharing, but also large enough to keep one totally satisfied.



Pork Ribs in 7 sauces (RM20.00/serving of 10 medium-sized pieces)
Everything is so meaty...I was kinda overwhelmed. Haha. These are really cute & bite-size, best to be enjoyed with a group of family members/friends.

Lamb Meatballs with Cheesy Sauce Spaghetti (RM22.50/serving)
The lamb meatballs were great, but I didn't enjoy the "cheesy" sauce. It was indeed cheesy, but it was also kinda too "sweet" for my liking. This was probably my least favourite dish for the day.

Juicy & well marinated lamb meatballs that didn't have the pungent "lamby" smell :D

Spaghetti Aglio Olio (RM15.00/serving or +RM3.00 with prawns)
This was actually not too bad. The spaghetti was not overly drenched with olive oil nor herbs & spices, but it was nicely seasoned to give the pasta a light, yet delectable eating-experience.

 Cheesy Pork Meat Ball with Spaghetti (RM18.00/serving)
Simple, yet satisfying serving of spaghetti with meat balls. There's nothing much to complain of this dish.

Pork Burger with Fries (RM12.90/serving)
The serving is HUGE! I think the burger was as big as my face! It's approximately 7 inches in diameter if I remember correctly! Hahaha...this burger can feed a really hungry man or at least 2 not-very-huge-appetite women. The pork patty is nicely seasoned & was still juicy. Not bad at all....

Chicken Burger with Fries (RM12.90/serving)
The chicken burger is just as huge, but the flavour & texture of the patty is quite different. I felt that the chicken burger tastes nicer, but I can't really describe it since there were too many food & my taste buds were getting confused! *lol*

Lamb Burger with Fries (RM14.90/serving)
Same size, but just RM2.00 more than the pork/chicken burger. We found this lamb variant the best among the 3 that were served to us. The minced lamb were "roughly minced", well seasoned (not overly infused with herbs & spices), & the patty was actually quite moist. Having said that, the combination of the burger buns + patty + mayonnaise + lettuce leaves still loses out to my favourite lamb burger at Vin's, where the patty is differently seasoned to give it a nice, smokey taste + the burger comes with pickles to make it a more appetizing burger! *yums*

Battle of the burgers...
From afar, you can't really differentiate the pork & chicken burgers, but once you cut it up, you can see the vast difference: chicken meat is white (left), while pork has a slightly pinkish colour (right).

Those above were the appetizer + mains. We were also served some side dishes to complete the meal!

 Deep-Fried Chicken Wings (RM15.00/serving of 5 wings)
It's a nice snack, but I didn't find anything "wow" about these. 

Chili Mussels (RM30.00/serving)
These were SPICY!!! So spicy that I choked when I tried it (my throat burst into flames!). Perhaps my tolerance-level towards spicy food has dropped, but everyone at the review thought this dish was really too spicy to enjoy! My housemate who LOVES spicy food loved this a lot, but she too felt that it gets spicier as you continue eating. It's certainly a dish for those who dare to take up the challenge!

Skippys Pizza will certainly be on my mind when I think of pork pizza. You can even request for delivery service to enjoy the pizza (and more) in the comfort of your home. No traffic jams, no need to pay for parking, pretty much hassle-free :)

Nice review, will surely try this out sometime as it's just behind my office. Always pass by and just look without actually reading the menu :)

@HenRy LeE: Sorry for the late reply! If you're around that area, it's not too bad a place for pizza :)

@chickrice: Thanks!! :D The food there isn't too bad. Price is decent for pizza as well :)
