Real Napoletana or Naples style pizza is hard to come by in Hong Kong, until the arrival of 208 Duecento Otto, Motorino, and surprisingly another Japanese restaurant called Kitchen J. This new Japanese import of Napoli’s I must say shocked me with the pricing policy. The Pizza’s come out from the Woodfire Oven starting from only HKD $35. It was actually quite legit.
Pizza Margherita – $35
When this arrived, I could smell the woodfire and this sensation carried into the mouth. It’s a little ‘too burnt’ to my liking in the taste, even though the outside Cornicone should be darker blistered. However the ones in Naples I ate looked burnt but don’t taste like it. The cheese used in this cheaper 1 of 2 Margheritas is obviously not great quality mozzarella, but the base tomato paste and the basil were legit. Overall Motorino or 208 Duecento Otto will yield you a better Naple’s style pizza. But this being only $35, is still enticing enough for me to return again and again..
