The pizza is an impeccable blend of savoury flavours and mild tomato sauce. Dive into the exotic flavours in Mallorca (HKD 238), with the raw cured and paprika-spiked pork sausage, Sobrasada, being the star to evoke the Spanish Balearic Islands. The rich-in-flavour sausage spread complements well with goat cheese and arugula set atop tomato sauce. Salsiccia (HKD 238) with fresh Italian pork sausage and guanciale, an Italian cured meat made from pork jowels, is spicy and irresistible for meat lovers, garnished with rosemary. Savour the refreshing taste of the sea with the Nordic (HKD 248) spotlighting the delicate Norwegian smoked salmon, paired with capers and pickled onions which bring tangy notes to tempt your taste buds.
The menu also covers timeless recipes including the iconic Margherita (HKD 188) with mozzarella, parmigiano, tomato sauce, basil and extra virgin olive oil, as well as Parma (HKD 248) loaded with prosciutto, arugula, mozzarella, parmigiano and tomato sauce. The pizza for cheese lovers - Quattro Formaggi (HKD 248) is a harmonious medley of mozzarella, parmigiano, scamorza and gorgonzola piccante, all molten on a tangy tomato sauce base.
Besides the ‘morerish’ pizzas, a range of delightful appetizers are also available. Burrata with Marinated Cherry Tomatoes (HKD 118), as well as the classic Prosciutto di Parma with Cantaloupe Melon slices (HKD 118), offer hints of freshness. Honey Garlic Chicken (HKD118) is deep fried until golden and crisp, then dipped in honey sweet soy sauce to tantalize your palate.
