• From 6-9 March, Franco Pepe returns to Kytaly Hong Kong to launch an exclusive pizza and cocktail collaboration menu with bartender Giancarlo Mancino

    With a new cocktail program spearheaded by gifted bartender Giancarlo Mancino, guests are treated to award-winning pizzas paired with premium cocktails in a beautiful terrace setting in the heart of the city. From 6-9 March, legendary pizzaiolo Franco Pepe returns to Kytaly Hong Kong to launch an exclusive pizza and cocktail collaboration menu with Giancarlo Mancino.


    Franco Pepe will unveil a new dish to pair perfectly with Mancino’s vermouth libations. A critically acclaimed pizza for its uncanny ability to fuse pineapples with pizza, the “AnaNascosta” is the delectable result of Pepe’s attempt to challenge the pairing thought to be so controversial in Italy. Translating to “hidden pineapple” in Italian, the AnaNascosta is a small cone of fried pizza with a small amount of grana cheese fondue, a cube of very cold pineapple wrapped in a slice of fat-rich prosciutto crudo and finished with a touch of licorice liquor.

     

    Currently, Kytaly’s cocktail menu houses ten exquisite creations by Giancarlo Mancino. Some highlights include the Martiniano, a sweet concoction of London Dry Gin, Mancino Vermouth, Secco, lemon oil and Japanese wakamomo peaches, and the Negroncino, Mancino’s take on the modern Negroni. All cocktails are priced at HK$108 each, and available daily from 12pm onwards.
