It was a day when there was an early EPL match at 7pm that I wanted to catch, so food delivery looked like the best option for our family dinner.
I noticed a flyer in the newspapers just days earlier that promoted Domino's Fabulous Four, so this was as good a time as any to try it out. After all, it's been a while since I've last had Domino's Pizza.
Now, as the name implies, you get four of your favourites in one easy-to-share yummy box...a mouthwatering mix of three savoury treats and one sweet delight.
The first of which are 4 roasted chicken drummets that's tender to the bite with just enough of flavour in the meat. At least you won't have to fight for which part of the wing you want....hehe! ;D
Next, you have 4 cheesy mozzarella stix with molten, hot and melty cheese inside (which I didn't have any, of course) which turned out to be my son's favourite.
Then, there were 8 garlic cheese onion rings with a soft onion ring embedded within a golden and savoury breaded batter (that's barely hanging on unfortunately)...and not quite as crispy too but still edible.
Finally, the only sweet treat of the box were 8 mini cinnadots that were like tiny bite-sized squares of bread that's been dusted with cinnamon and sugar (I think) but not sweet at all. I don't know what that white sauce is accompanying these mini cinnadots but I know I didn't like it.
This Fabulous Four promotion comes with an order of two pizzas, so we went with Aloha Chicken of shredded chicken and pineapple. I actually called it Hawaiian Chicken when I made the order....oops, I think that's what Pizza Hut calls it but, hey, it's a name synonymous with chicken and pineapple, so I guess that name is universal....hehe! ;)
Whether you want to call it Aloha or Hawaiian Chicken...it's still one of our all-time favourite pizzas coz we love the fresh and juicy pineapple chunks! ^_*
Our other pizza was the Beef Pepperoni. Look at the abundant beef pepperoni slices! When I first started eating Domino's, I always went for their thin crust pizzas...what was I thinking? >_< I remembered them being crispy but I sometimes they're so overly crunchy it was like eating a hard biscuit. I now prefer their classic hand tossed crust, soft and pliable when warm....a little bit more jaw-exercise when cold.
A regular sized pizza is 9 inches and yields 6 pieces, so you do the math...12 slices for 3 pax means each person has to eat 4 slices...that's more than half a pizza each (and with sides)! That's why this is a value deal which can feed up to 4 persons.
Another reason why I like to order Domino's and not Pizza Hut is because we have a branch in our housing area. That means the pizzas arrive hot...and on time (in fact, in less than half an hour) or you get a free pizza the next time. I've never gotten any free pizza coupons from Domino's but quite a few from Pizza Hut (which I've never claimed) and I've since stopped eating Pizza Hut's pizzas altogether.
Of course they aren't as good as those wood-fired fresh and made-to-order pizzas we get from pizza specialists and/or restaurants, but (seriously) where can you get a whole 9-inch pizza for RM15 nowadays...delivered right to your doorstep....and for that Domino's pizzas are a pretty darn good option for TV nights! ^.^
