Top Italian Restaurants in Hong Kong

Oct. 24 2017, 07:55 pm

It’s actually easier to find fine red prawns from Mazara del Vallo, or a prized white truffle from Alba in Hong Kong than it is in Bologna. That’s globalization! Competition is the salt of Hong Kong, which is a relentlessly zealous city. Bombana was the pioneer, its success attracted many extraordinary chefs who now shine in spectacular hotel kitchens and food halls. In regards to pizza, considering the restrictions, there’s still a lot of work to be done, but as far as Italian ingredients and culinary skills, the quality standards are raised incredibly high.
