Pizza is an all-time favorite treat among people, regardless of age, gender, or social status. There’s just something about this sumptuous baked goodie that people are drawn to. It is the go-to food for on-the-go individuals who want a quick bite to eat, for couples who want to enjoy simple food together, for students looking for filling but affordable snacks, and for families who want to bond over food that won’t cause a mess, even with kids around.
In the Philippines, Calda is the place to go for people craving pizza. They are famous for offering a wide variety of pizza flavors and sizes. Yes, sizes! They have the standard 11″ pizza along with four other sizes—16″, 20″, 30″, and 36″. Some branches even have the Monster 40″ pizza! But while Calda is known for always giving their customers an unforgettable pizza experience, that’s not all they have to offer. If you’re planning to visit the restaurant with a group of friends, but not everyone is in a pizza mood, don’t worry! They have non-pizza offerings that are just as delicious.
Fried Chicken Meals
You’ll be glad to know that the main non-pizza offering Calda Philippines is another all-time favorite of adults and kids alike—fried chicken! Crispy on the outside and deliciously juicy on the inside, their fried chicken is sure to tickle your taste buds and satisfy your craving for something other than pizza. If you’re with a group and you all want to enjoy the sumptuous goodness of both the restaurant’s famous pizza and to-die-for chicken, why not order both? Their fried chicken comes in four servings:
SOLO PACK (because dining alone is an adventure) – breast and thigh parts
DUO PACK (because meals are more enjoyable when shared with a loved one) – breast or thigh and wing or drumstick parts
TRIO PACK (because the more, the merrier!) – breast or thigh, wing, and drumstick parts
FAMILY PACK (because family time is quality time) – 2 breast, 2 thigh, 2 wing, and 2 drumstick parts
So, you see, whether you’re alone, with a special someone, or with a group, you can sit down to a tasty chicken meal at Calda. Oh, and they have Spicy Buffalo Wings, too! So, if you want your chicken to have a bit of a kick, ditch the fried and go for the spice!
The good news doesn’t stop there. The restaurant has potato goodies, too! What, exactly, are we talking about? Naturally, when one talks about potato treats, you can’t leave out the ever-famous French Fries! And yes, Calda has them, too! Their crispy, super-flavorful fries are available in three mouthwatering flavors: Barbecue, Cheese, and Sour Cream. Take your pick and enjoy them with your choice of pizza, or enjoy them a la carte if you’re just in the mood for a light snack. Just ENJOY THEM. PERIOD.
Here’s a tip: Some of our friends ordered their favorite Calda pizza flavor and then topped the pizza with the restaurant’s fries (as if it wasn’t brimming with yummy toppings already!). And they had a blast! Why don’t you try doing the same thing? You just might like it, too. Yeah, it’s fun to be weird sometimes.
If you love potatoes so much that you really want to savor their soft and tasty goodness, maybe regular fries aren’t for you. Good thing Calda also has potato wedges! Served with a tasty dip, it’s sure to satisfy the potato lover in you.
While we’re on the subject of light snacks that also make for a perfect side dish to your favorite pizza, why not get a load of their onion rings? Just like the potato wedges, the onion rings come with a special dip that makes it yummier than ever. Even if you’re not especially fond of onions, you’re sure to get hooked when you pair this treat with the heavenly goodness of pizza.
What if your friends have all decided to dine at Calda, but your craving pasta? Will you, then, have to resign yourself to the fact that you’ll just have to postpone your pasta experience? Of course not! After all, Calda is an Italian-inspired Filipino restaurant, and Italy isn’t just about pizza; they’re about pasta, too. Calda has its own selection of pasta dishes, and you’ll be sure to find one that’ll satisfy your pasta craving. You might even want to keep going back to try them all.
Just because it’s called Calda Pizza, doesn’t mean there’s nothing else for you to enjoy at this restaurant. In fact, there’s plenty. Buon appetito!
