Pizza: not the most original, seeing that there are well-known franchises (Pizza Hut, Domino's), or more obscure pizzerias in just about everywhere.
It makes it a lot harder to find a pizzeria that stands out, but Mikey's Original New York Pizza might do just that.
You only get 2 choices: a single slice, or the whole pie going at 18 inches in diameter. What does that mean? Looks a lot like this.
A pizza to ogle at
Before you stuff yourself up, be ready to splurge, as the prices are another thing to ogle at: MYR8.88 for a slice, and a tear-jerking MYR60-90 for the whole pie.
For those who like their cheese, the Pizza Bianco, filled with mozzarella, ricotta, cheddar and goat cheese, might do the trick.

Mushroom fans will fancy the Wild Mushroom Pizza, but I'm afraid there might not be enough mushrooms to satiate your craving. The same can be said of the Meatball Pizza, though that may be due to inflated expectations. Having seen the other pies, I was expecting large, round meatballs, but they have been chopped down to size.

But for sheer experience, you have to go for the whole pie, regardless of flavour, period. The Tony Soprano, fit for meat lovers, was majestic, with meatballs, sliced steak and pepperoni headlining the largest pizza I've ever eaten in my life. It took 2 guys 1.5 hours...to eat 3 quarters of it.

Overall, the pizza base is semi-hard, and there's plenty of it to go with the toppings, where it mattered not what cheese, sauce and ingredient was used, they meshed together for a very flavourful experience.
For the really nutty, go ahead and attempt the 9-1-1 pizza (deemed Asia's spiciest), solo. Should you succeed, you get to go on their otherwise empty Hall of Fame Wall, and maybe a drink from me.
If that isn't enough, what's better to go with pizzas than waffle fries? Coming in 5 flavours, enjoy a variety of sauces and treats to go with the succulent fries, so good that I wish they gave us more.

The price can be high, but for the experience and taste, it's certainly worth a little bit of New York.
