As its name suggests, Yellow Cab Pizza Co. serves New York-inspired made-to-order pizza, but the pizzeria also is known for its wide menu of pasta, wings and salad, as well as drinks and desserts, including beer, wine, espresso coffee and gelato.
“Our pizzas are often described as tasty, flavorful, and that we are very generous with our toppings,” says general manager Maly San Luis, who introduced the international chain to Hawaii a little over a year ago. “We have a wide variety of pasta that is sure to please everyone. We have tomato sauce, cream sauce, garlic and olive oil sauce, and an Asian influence sauce.
“Also, because the food is made to order, we can accommodate special requests such as adding or leaving out certain ingredients, or half the pizza a certain type and the other half something else,” adds San Luis.
Yellow Cab’s top selling pizza is the Four Seasons (roasted garlic shrimp, pepperoni, four cheese and barbecue chicken), and its top pasta is the Alfredo, made fresh to order with chicken, shrimp or seafood. All pasta dishes are available in your choice of spaghetti or penne.
Located at the Costco Iwilei complex (next to Max’s of Manila), Yellow Cab Pizza also has become popular for large group gatherings, including sports team celebrations and birthday and graduation parties.
The casual pizza joint offers a private party room for 30 people, and its main dining room can seat up to 80 people.
“Our restaurant is often described as hip, modern and fun,” adds San Luis, noting that Yellow Cab is part of an international franchise (originating in the Philippines) with the Hawaii location as the first restaurant in North America.
A Party Package is available for groups of 10 ($125) consisting of three orders of its 14-inch Classic Pizzas, four orders of its Classic Pastas, 10 glasses of soda or two 2-liter bottles of soda, 10 gelato ice cream or a 14-inch Apple Caramel Crisp.
There also is a catering menu with pasta, salad and wing platters.
