Papa John's & Krispy Kreme

I've been longing to try Papa John's ever since Berjaya Group brought it here to Malaysia. On top of that, reading good review from other blogger about this restaurant, it adds up to my eagerness for this good pizza.
Last weekend, we went to Time Square for the hit pizza in town. Waiting time was a bit long but the good quality pizza made us forgot about the long waiting time. It's definitely worth it!
The dough was so soft and as the slogan says," Better Ingredients, Better Pizza". We totally agree with it.

We ordered two 6'Original pizza - the first one Super Papa's - top with beef pepperoni, sausage, chicken, mushroom, green pepper, onion and black olives. First bit itself we love it. It is definitely not run-of-the-mill pizza.


Another one is Mexican Ole - top with grilled chicken, corn, kernels, onion, tomatoes & pepper. This is good, but I love Super Papa's more......

We feel like having more pieces of the pizza...it was so tempting! It's more expensive than other brands available here, as the 6' or personal pizza cost RM11.20. However, you should try it then you'll feel it's value for money!

The pickled chillies come along with the pizza....simply acerbic!


The vanilla ice-cream with Coca-cola was nectarous!Love the ice-cream....


After the appealing pizzas, we let our stomach rest for a while before we headed to Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and Coffee next door. Since some said it's the best doughnut in US, some said it's world's best doughnut, I must give a try!!!
Going with high expectation, I was surprised to see the service crew was a huge team, but not as customer friendly in terms of putting order. I feel Big Apple's way of ordering is more systematic. Anyway, we ordered 2 flavours - One Cappuccino and one almond to try.



Both the doughnuts were OK. However, personally, I feel there is nothing to shout about. I prefer Big Apple's doughnuts than this.
Not only that,the coffee were totally out...



That was the truly American weekend dining....will definitely go back for Papa John's pizza but no no for Krispy Kreme. Once again, it's food tasting is very personal, no offence to Krispy Kreme lover.

I've yet to try Papa John's, but I have to agree with you. Krispy Kreme has been very inconsistent.

They were quite good when they first came out. After that, the QC was very poor. Very disappointing for a Krispy Kreme fan! o_0

Pete said...

Wah, nice pizza and good dessert! Yummy!

SimpleGirl said...

selba, yes, the pizza was really good!

Bangsar-babe, oh...really...?? i hope they can be consistent in their QC, or else not easy to retain the customers in this stiff competition

pete, pizza was good, yes yes!!!

agreed. Papa John's I went twice, and both visits also justified the amount paid, as the pizza's better than the average pizza joints. the cheese sticks is marvellous, dipped into the garlic butter sauce.

krispy kreme's HORRIBLE. After finishing 3 of them, I felt like vomiting. too freakin sweet, and the dough not as soft as JCo/Big Apple.

SimpleGirl said...

j2kfm, yea, papa john's really value for money. me, too, i really feel bad after eating the freaking sweet doughnuts...haha....

Big Boys Oven said...

I am waiting to go back for second round at Papa Johns. Krispy Kreme still new and hope it will make its way to 1 Utama area soon.

Sugar Bean said...

Wow, the almond slices look generous. But Big Apple is better? I haven't tried Big Apple before, heard that it's less sweeter than JCo.

Want to try both Papa John and Krispy Kreme out.

SimpleGirl said...

BBO, YEA, make sure you check out Papa John's ya!

Worldwindows, hopefully Krispy Kreme will improve on the service and quality....

sugar bean, i prefer Big Apple's donut....do check it out...i am sure u'll like it!
