For the last few weeks, for two months in fact, there have been banners, flyers, posters, and sign boards all over Kelapa Gading, announcing the opening of KONO PIZZA on the 2nd floor of KGM 3. The proprietors of Kono Pizza also happen to own Cinnzeo, a cinnamon bun joint on the ground floor of KGM 3 that really is quite good. In addition they own Hot Shots which is a burger place located in La Piazza, also in Kelapa Gading. Hot Shots in my opinion serves up one of the best burgers in town and they also have beverages such as Sarsaparilla and Portello. And yes boys, it takes just like the one we used to get in Tesano Club.
With the entire buzz going on about Kono Pizza I finally made up my mind to head there for lunch today. At first I thought this would be some sort a Japanese twist on pizza but once I saw the banners up close I realized that these people were putting pizzas into cones. The idea did seem strange to me but I had to give it a shot. Pizza is my most favorite food and this could be a culinary revolution
I just got back from lunch. What the fuck were they thinking!!?? Pizza in a cone makes as much sense as ice cream spread out flat on a plate, is how my sister put it. I’m sorry, but this just did not work for me. There seemed to be a general flow of people coming in while I was there but I am sure once the novelty is gone this place will fade away. But then again, stranger things have worked in this country. I thought this might just taste like a pizza folding half but it was not like that at all.
Have you ever heard of this place? I am pretty sure this is a franchise as the kitchen equipment was customized. The cones which are just made of dough are placed in a cone shaped holder where they are filled with whatever filling you order. They then go around in an assembly line manner, through holes in a big metal stove and come out hot and steamy on the other end. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the KONO PIZZA!!
