Posto Pubblico is known for their massive pies. We’re not joking. Their pizzas are pan fried and charred and served in an iron skillet. While there are only four options, they won’t leave you craving more. Try the Bronx Bomber- a pizza topped high with crumbled sausage, pepperoni and oregano for only HK $148. Not in the mood for meat? Taste the Brooklyn Special- breaded eggplant, fresh mozzarella and roasted peppers (HK $128). Feeling extra fancy? Go for the mushroom, pecorino, and truffle pie (HK $128). In the mood to keep it simple? Get a Margherita pie topped with thin layers of tomato, basil and mozzarella. Bon appetit!

6. Ciao Chow
Located in buzzy LKF, Ciao Chow is hands down the place to grab a quick bite before some action a few feet away. But, here’s a little-known fact: Ciao Chow is the only restaurant in the 852 that is VPN certified. VPN--for those plebes--stands for Verace Pizza Napoletana which basically means this is some "true Neapolitan pizza" action. In other words, this is some damn good pizza.
G/F, California Tower, 30-32 D'Aguilar Street,, Lan Kwai Fong, Central
This ex-restaurant (they now offer catering service only) offers five delicious kinds of pizza, all on thin crusty goodness, and all for—get this—HK $145.

If you really want to indulge, dive into their Three Cheese and Parma Ham Pizza: made with gorgonzola, mascarpone, parmesan and topped with slices of parma ham. Plus, sandwich and brunch options are aplenty should your gang not be in the mood for pizza.
