Cafe Deco Pizzeria

With over 30 restaurants and bars across Hong Kong, Café Deco Group is deeply entrenched in the city’s dining scene – and they’re forever expanding. To their brood, the tastemakers have just added Café Deco Pizzeria, their first pizza-focused venture, boasting a warm ambience where soft lighting and industrial details blend well with wooden accents.

You generally encounter two types of pizza joints – ones gunning for authenticity, others aiming for invention. Here, it’s more the latter, with the menu tending toward the international and less traditional end of the spectrum. 

We’re tempted by the sound of the Thai beef and wagyu beef and prawn pizzas on offer (both $150), but ultimately go with the Peking duck-inspired The Duck ($150), determined to put the menu’s novelty to the test. The pizza comes topped with roasted duck, hoisin sauce, spring onion, coriander, sesame seeds and slices of red chilli for that extra spark, atop a crispy and thin base. The cheese is perfectly light and, unlike some duck and hoisin combinations, manages to find an excellent balance. The freshness, in particular, cuts through the sweetness well.

Pulling off solid, contemporary pizzas at an honest price point, Café Deco Pizzeria has managed to find a winning formula. We will gladly come back soon.
