It was a lazy Sunday afternoon and the most exciting part of the day was waiting for news on the Pacquaio-Cotto fight in Las Vegas. After checking live blogs online for blow by blow accounts of the fight, I learnt that Manny Pacquiao won by a technical knock-out on round 12. Yehey! Congratulations to the best boxer in the world!!
To celebrate the big win, I ordered the Angus Steakhouse pizza from Shakey’s. I wanted to try it after seeing their ad all over tv, newspapers and billboards. I’ve always liked Shakey’s pizza for it’s thin and crispy crust. I usually just order the garlic and cheese which is my favorite from Shakey’s.
My first impression when I opened the box was the pizza was very oily. After blotting out all the excess oil with a paper napkin, I took my first bite. The pizza was crisp and the sauce was slightly sour and very tomato-ey. I hate sweet tomato sauce on pizzas or pasta.

The Angus beef was very, very tender and spiced just right. The mushrooms were a perfect complement to the steak. I loved the extra crunch from the fried shoestring potatoes liberally scattered on the pizza. The roast onions also gave the pizza a natural sweetness. I appreciated the sauce and cheese all the way to the edge of the crust. With other pizzas they leave half an inch or more for the border. I usually leave that part of the crust uneaten. With this pizza there was no left-over crust.
Mojo potatoes are simply sliced potatoes dipped in spiced flour and deep fried. They taste like fried chicken. They still taste as good as ever. I liked the thinner slices better though. The potatoes came with a choice of zesty caesar or spicy garlic dip. I chose the caesar dip which was good but I liked eating the potatoes by itself. It didn’t need any dip.
