Wood & Wheat at Tropicana Avenue serves wood-fried oven pizzas that you’ll be drawn to just by hearing about the flavours. Now, before you slam fusion pizzas, you ought to give it a taste.
Pizzas at Wood & Wheat are interesting because of the very Asianised flavours and ingredients. Though the theme itself might make you feel like you’re in a very Western diner-esque place.
Casual dining at its best, the dishes are served in paper cups and wooden blocks. You can find comfort food sides here like their chicken fingers (RM12) and garlick fries (RM8). The sides aren’t much to shout about, so let’s move on to the pizzas.
The main highlight here is their pizzas, of course. The thick crusted, freshly made pizzas are fluffy and huge - great for sharing. And like we mentioned before, Asian flavours seem to be the focus here. You can find flavours like Kam Heong chicken, beef rendang, tom yum seafood, lamb masala, and even chicken teriyaki. It’s a journey around the world as you mix and match your favourite pizza flavours here.
Wood & Wheat practices a sharing policy, so you can choose to have your pizza as a whole (ranging from RM30-40) or half-half (choose two flavours on one pizza for RM42).
Old classics like Margherita and triple cheese are available on the menu. But you’ll likely be whisked away by the other whimsical flavours instead. My favourite pizza flavour was actually the beef rendang, which I simply couldn’t get enough of. The rest of my dining partners found refuge in the Kam Heong chicken pizza, which they said reminded them of Assam Fish Curry.
All pizzas are made fresh to order, so it’s a short wait for your order, but one that is worth it. You can pair your pizza with sinful drinks like their dark chocolate mint (RM13) milkshake or strawberry smoothie (RM9.50).
