California Pizza Kitchen's 2017 Summer Menu Includes a New Banh Mi Bowl

California Pizza Kitchen ushers in this summer with a number of seasonal menu items including the new Banh Mi Bowl.

The Banh Mi Bowl is a bit like a Vietnamese banh mi sandwich but without the bread and features quinoa, baby kale, grilled chicken, watermelon radishes, avocado, cucumbers, carrots, bean sprouts, scallions, cilantro, mint, sesame seeds, serrano peppers, and a chili-lime vinaigrette.

Also on the menu for a limited time are a number of seasonal dishes:

- Santa Fe Bowl - Cilantro farro, spinach, lime chicken, tomatoes, sweet corn, black beans, red cabbage, avocado, poblano peppers, and toasted pepitas served with poblano ranch dressing.

- Lemongrass Chicken - Roasted chicken in a lemongrass ginger glaze served over stir-fried baby bok choy, roasted farro, Shiitake mushrooms, and red chili.

- California Fields Salad - Fresh watermelon, strawberries, and field greens with Champagne vinaigrette, feta, and pistachios.

- Strawberry Shortcake - Shortcake biscuit topped with fresh strawberries, whipped cream, and candied lemon zest.

- Watermelon Mint Martini - Bombay Sapphire Gin muddled with fresh mint, watermelon puree and agave sour.

In addition to the seasonal summer menu, CPK has brought back a number of previous seasonal items to their permanent menu. The once-limited-time dishes include:

- Carne Asada Pizza - Topped with Marinated steak, fire-roasted poblanos, cilantro pesto, yellow onions, Mozzarella, Monterey Jack, and fresh cilantro. Served with salsa verde.

- Wild Mushroom Strozzapreti - Rolled pasta noodles with sautéed Cremini, Portobello and seasonal mushrooms, Parmesan, and fresh thyme and parsley.

- Charred Shishito Peppers - Shishito peppers sautéed with Tamari soy sauce, garlic, and red chili.
