14 Shelley St., SoHo, Central, Hong Kong

The Overview

Popular New York City pizzeria Motorino has opened its first restaurant overseas in Hong Kong's chic SoHo district. The casual Neapolitan dining concept was initially launched in Brooklyn in 2008 by Belgian chef Mathieu Palombino, who honed his kitchen skills under Laurent Tourondel and David Bouley. Harboring a culinary dream to set up an intimate pizzeria, Palombino traveled to Naples to familiarize himself with the genuine Neapolitan article. Just as the Italian government dictates, all Motorino's pizzas are made to a traditional recipe using Caputo flour, San Marzano tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella. From its hip setting—think distressed hardwood floors and pressed tin ceilings—signature dishes, including prosciutto di Parma and Brussels sprouts pizza, are cooked up in the obligatory wood-fired oven.
