Today is my mom’s-in-law 60th Birthday. Jesse wanted to give a surprise birthday to her beloved mother in the Philippines. A month before, my hubby frequently communicates with his brother and father for the preparation. He designed the invitations, created the multimedia presentation, prepared the guest lists, and financed the whole event. He said that for the longest time, her mother hadn’t celebrated her special day with a big party because she has to save money in order to give him and his siblings a good education from prestigious schools in town. I adore him so much. He is such a humble son that greatly manifests his love for her mother through his wonderful gestures. No wonder this man takes my heart away! Yey!
It is even more surprising when he asked me and the kids to get ready for a family dinner at the newly opened Pizza Company in Muscat Grand Mall just 5 minute drive from home. Because I am a pasta and pizza lover, I quickly dress up myself and the kids and we head off to the venue right before dinner time.
The Pizza Company originated in Thailand in 1981 and gradually branch out to 11 countries and now, have over 270 locations worldwide. In Oman, the pizzeria has just opened its new outlet in Muscat Grand Mall on April 2013. Located on the second floor, the restaurant is spacious enough to accommodate 90 diners indoors and 48 sitters outdoors.
The interior boasts an Italian-inspired design with an open kitchen highlighting the pasta station where guests can see chefs freshly prepare orders and witness live cooking in the pantry. They also have full menu of Italian staples such as pizzas, pastas, baked rice dishes, salads and breads to suit every appetite.
We begin our dinner with cheese chicken strips with fries and a plate of starters that include spicy chicken wings, butter bread, potato wedges, and onion rings.
The main courses include the Vegetable Salad with Ceasar dressing, Spaghetti Bolognase, Chicken Wings, and All-meat stuffed crust pizza.
To quench our thirst, we ordered Bottomless Ice Tea that are made of fresh lemon and real black tea. Very organic!
What make the menu in Pizza Company apart from its competitors are the fresh and fine ingredients they used and the secret recipe of freshly made pizza dough.
We truly enjoy our meal and indeed, it is a wonderful dinner. The prices are also very competitive which for our order we pay a total of 15.500 OMR. All I can say that Pizza Company deliver a quality dining experience for Italian food lovers in Oman and they truly fulfill their “Passion for Great Products”.
For sure, we will come back in this café if I have cravings for pasta and pizza once again!
