Crust has just unveiled three exciting new pizzas inspired by traditional street food dished out in Asia and South America. They are the Kimchi BBQ Chicken, Moorish Lamb and Sriracha Beef. I was fortunate enough to be asked to review one of these new pulled meat pizzas. I decided to go for the Kimchi BBQ Chicken and made my order at the Victoria Park store.
The Victoria Park store is located on Albany Highway next to Red Basil. I’ve frequented this pizza bar numerous times as it is near my house and it is very convenient with parking, especially now that free ticketed parking in Vic Park has increased to 30 minutes at any one time slot.
My two favorite pizzas from Crust have always been the Pulled Pork and Slaw and the Szechuan Chili Prawn. Let’s see whether the Kimchi BBQ Chicken is on par!
Here we go…
The Kimchi BBQ Chicken Pizza ($21 for a large) consists of slow cooked pulled chicken marinated in bulgogi sauce, shitake mushrooms and shallots, on a garlic base and garnished with kimchi, sesame seeds, red & green chilli. Your typical Korean dish except mixed together and sitting on top of a pizza base!
The Verdict….yes, I like it! Flavorsome pulled chicken, marinated well, the saltiness balanced by the spicy and sourish kimchi scattered over the top. The taste really grows on you as you take each bite. The only thing to watch out for is the red and green chili garnish, they are extremely hot! I had to pick them out as I’m not very good with chilies.
How does it compare with my two favorites? I think my favorite is still the Pulled Pork and Slaw but I do like the Kimchi BBQ Chicken, it is very innovative of Crust to come up with such flavors on a pizza! I think I’ll have to try the Sriracha Beef next, the avocado slices on the pizza look amazing.
