No doubt you’re ready for more after the ferry ride back from Cheung Chau. It’s time to hit the big boys on Hong Kong Island. Jacomax was at the vanguard of the artisanal pizza movement here in Hong Kong. With an imported stone oven straight from Italy, the wheels here are Neopolitan style. And true to that region’s signature pizza, the crust is incredibly thin with a tender and chewy texture. For those seeking something different, the eatery serves up an apple and gorgonzola white pizza ($148) that’s absolutely delicious. If that doesn’t take your fancy, the signature Jacomax ($158) with ground beef and peppers is just as satisfying. Shop C, 88 Commercial Bldg, 28-34 Wing Lok St, Sheung Wan, 2851 4688; jacomax.net.
Our city is home to some seriously good pizza. Although we can’t claim the same heritage as Rome or New York, the Fragrant Harbour makes up for it with loads of variety. So slip into your stretchy pants and join Lisa Cam on a tour full of carbs, glorious carbs… Illustration by Jessica Li
