Amò @ 33 Hong Kong St

For our foodie Aug gathering, we were at Amò. An Italian Concept by Michelin Star Chef-Restaurateur Beppe De Vito.

Had a reservation at 7pm but was informed that we could only have our table until 830pm. Alright. Seems like this is one popular joint!

Arrived to a table that had started because some had arrived at 6+. The mushroom starter with egg confit and caramelized onions was really tasty. Made one feels like having a drink.

Roasted Mushrooms with Egg Confit and Caramelized Onions @$9++
Handcut fries with Rosemary and Truffle Mayo @$12++

My friends had started but they saved a slice of Margherita for me. This turned out to be very very good. When it comes to eating pizza, do you like to eat with fork and knife? Or, use the hand to roll it up before enjoying a big bite of it? I'm for the latter, even though we are in a classy place. It just made the eating much more enjoyable. And perhaps, enhanced the taste too? Hahaha!

Margherita DOP @$25++

I did order a gin-based drink called Jin-Aji. Lovely yuzu flavour, sweet and refreshing.

We had a couple more pizza and of course, meat. Just one meat though. Iberico Pork Chop sounded like a good choice. The best part? The meat just right above the bone.

Was mesmerized by the beautiful Broccolini, Pancetta, Pumpkin and Smoked Mozzarella pizza from its Signature series. It was leaning slightly to the sweeter side of things but the cheese and its vibrant colour, made us happy.

The last pizza that we had was the Pork Sausage pizza. First time am having potatoes as a topping on a pizza. Interesting! I love how the edges of the pizza was charred. It added character to the pizza.

On average, we had eaten about 4 slices of pizza and abit of the rest. Ended up feeling rather full as these were not the thin crust pizza type, and we did finish all our crust.

Overall, the pizza was chewy and loved that it was laden with cheese. My favourite in terms of flavour was the margherita because of the tangy tomato based sauce and its familiar taste. The most beautiful had to be the pumpkin pizza and the pork sausage was interesting because of the potato topping but the last two were leaning towards the sweet side.

Suitable for date nights and expect to spend about $40 to $50 per pax.

complimentary dessert - chiacchiere

Thank you to the nice and attentive service crew at Amò. As well as for the plate of chiacchiere for us to try.
