Experience: Crust brings you all the flavours, culture, and lifestyle of the Amalfi Coast. In true Neapolitan Pasticceria style, they are open all day, from morning coffees and pastries, to lunch, aperitifs and dinner. Absolutely love the colorful tiles in the interior! Crust is situated in The Woo Cheong Pawn Shop, an iconic four-story tenement located on Johnston Road in Wan Chai, one of the last of its kind still standing today. Parts of the building date back as far as 1888. As a mixture of Chinese and Western architectures, the building now serves as the perfect conduit for Crust to bring Neapolitan cuisine and culture to Hong Kong. Absolutely loved the Risotto with lemon and the small lemon cake with mascarpone. The bill can be quite expensive when you want to try different pastries and small fruits filled with gelato from the counter as dessert.
Kiki & Amèl’s favourites: Risotto with roasted Amalfi lemon & rosemary, Macaroni pasta in Sunday’s Neapolitan meat ragout, Positano’s style scialatielli with seafood, Buffalo mozzarella braid, tomatoes & Caserta ham, Parmigiana melanzane, ricotta lemon tart.
