In line with this ultra positive, as-light-as-air feeling (it could just be the holiday season, who knows?), I propose to write about my favorite places to chow in Hong Kong. This topic alone would give me something to write about everyday for the next few years or so. Yes, that's how many yummy restaurants there are in my adopted home away from home.
To cut my aimless storytelling short, I introduce my favorite pizza/pasta place in Hong Kong. Yes, I know what you're thinking. Why not a chasiu place? Or a dimsum place? Maybe a noodle joint? A cha chaan teng? A dai pai dong? Favorite Peking duck? Stinky tofu? Egg waffle? Fried rice? Fishball? The list is endless, but the night is short, and, to be honest, I don't have pictures of all those! Which is the perfect excuse to gorge myself on them the next few days. :)
What I do have pictures of, are Piccolo Pizzeria's Pasta al Vongole (I could happily slurp the sauce that pools at the bottom but no one leaves any for me), Carbonara (al dente, creamy but not too rich, with bacon bits in every single bite) and their pizza with charred edges, crisp crust, and an Italian egg right smack in the center! The runny yolk caresses each slice. Enough said.
Well, not nearly enough. Their Aglio Olio is one of the best in town, and the Pizza Bianca is a must try.
