Take one step into Yellow Cab Pizza in Iwilei and diners will notice a cosmopolitan ambiance. A New York mural with the Empire State Building sets the tone on one wall, while a photo of blurred taxicabs speeding about in Times Square ignites the imagination.
Diners might think the pizza chain originated in the Big Apple, but it actually came from Asia and is New York-inspired. (This location is the first in the U.S.) And while Asia and New York may seem like an unlikely combination, the eatery’s menu proves otherwise.
Take for instance, Charlie Chan Chicken Pasta ($8.95). The meal treats diners to spaghetti with an Asian zing. It is a lot like Kung Pao chicken, which also means this dish has a little kick to it. This pasta complements any item on the eatery’s well-rounded menu of salads, chicken wings, desserts and, of course, pizza.
As Yellow Cab continues to grow its roots in Hawaii, the eatery has expanded to include a catering menu, as well as a Pizza Party Package that offers free use of the party room for up to two hours.
A Litte Bit of Everything
Always having a hard time choosing just one type of pizza to eat? Yellow Cab has got you covered with its Four Seasons pie ($9.95 for 10-inch, $13.95 for 14-inch, $17.95 for 18-inch). It includes a quarter of NY Classic, No. 4 Cheese, Barbecue Chicken, and Roasted Garlic and Shrimp. Talk about yummy!
Maly San Luis, the restaurant’s general manager, says customers can also add toppings as they please for a small additional charge, or make their own combination of pizza halves.
