Yellow Cab Pizza Co.

Hello people, sorry for the lack of update. Anyone here fans of pizza? Yeah! Let's pizza blanditiis

Few months back, my friends and I was heading to Ampang to visit our friends who was admitted at Ampang Puteri Specialist Hospital. On the way back, we planned to have our so called hi-tea at Oldtown White Coffee near the hospital, but then Afiq suggested us to try a new brand pizza in Malaysia, Yellow Cab Pizza Co. located around there.

So four of us agreed and we make our way to Yellow Cab Pizza. First thing that cross my mind when I arrived there is what makes Yellow Cab different from the others pizza outlets such as Pizza Hut, Dominos, Shakey’s and etc ? What is the specialty, because the taboo was there is no different in any pizza , they still looks and taste likes pizza minus the secret recipes and ingredients use to make it.

"When you want a great pizza, call a cab"

So we went to the counter and make a order. For first timer like us, we have doubt in choosing what the best to fill up our stomach ,then the ladies with the yellow shirt at the counter suggest us some favourite-most ordered pizza.

I let them choose whatever pizza they want, and they choose NY classic-beef pepperoni extra cheese while I hovering around the shop. At the wall, there were histories of birth of Pizza Yellow Cab Co that origin from Philipines if I’m not mistaken.

There are three size of pizza that Yellow Cab Co offer to their customers. 10” / 14” / 18” . If you wonder how the sizes look alike, let’s just imagine the size of rim that we usually use on our car. and we choose the largest size which is 18” !

Choose Your Size

At first we decided to have it at the restaurant but then we are in rush to the other places, so take away is yet the best option that we have that time- no time for the other food .

Besides pizza, they also served spaghetti and meatballs, pasta and baked potato not to forget homemade vanilla ice cream.

While waiting for the pizza to be done, we tried this kind of drink called Sola Iced Tea Drink-come in two flavours Raspberry and Lemon.Sola is the tasting iced tea that use only the finest natural fruit flavors and real tea. I have Raspberry for my drink.This drink only can be found here at Yellow Cab outlets only , as the pizza its origin from philipines too.



We took a long time to wait for the pizza to be done, about 30 minutes. We get our pizza and we have it in the car. munch munch yummy.

giant pizza !


What a big size ! The sight of 18 inches pizza is enough to satiate my hunger. I was able to consume just two square slices and I feel so full.

Thin crust pizza are alright - toppings are generous, the meaty and luscious crust is so tasty up to the last bite. The only thing that I hate about this food is that is composed of too much oil. I mean, a very too much ! When I hold it even with a tissue, my hands get too greasy. Even my lips do get oily. But other than that, this pizza is heaven’s sent for its enjoyable taste. All the meaty components and seasoning are blended perfectly to achieve a unique taste. The crust is thick and in overall, it is incomparable to neither Pizza Hut nor Shakey’s. The crust is uniquely crispy and chewy because it is created from special dough which is kept fresh. Even the sauce comes from real tomatoes and carefully selected herbs and spices. Their toppings are the special ones, what else would I ask for?

For the price sake, I can say - expensive. For the pizza only, it charges us around RM 60. But after all where else can I have this giant pizza other than Yellow Cab ? But to me, Yellow Cab is not my first choice, Dominos still the best when we want to talk about price and worthy ! I think if it is not about the oily part, Yellow Cab is up to #1.

Till then people :)
