The Yellow Cab Pizza Company got its name from using a yellow-and-black color pattern which is commonly used by real yellow cabs in the USA.

The American taxi industry started in New York in 1912 with the incorporation of the Yellow Taxicab Company.

The Yellow Cab name came in 1915 in Chicago as the taxi company of the eventual founder of the Hertz Rent-a-Car business which still uses a yellow logo.

But this blog is not about taxi cabs, so off to Yellow Cab Pizza's Charlie Chan chicken pasta which I found too spicy and which my flickr friend aliceinthepoetsheartland explained was "meant to tease [the] palate into savoring the pizza, [a New York classic pepperoni pizza in my case], because tastes blend in the mouth".
