The Pizza-Q group is a three-chain franchise with two other locations in Ap Lei Chau and Causeway Bay. Pizza-Q K-Town used to be a takeout stall on Davis Street, squished between a bunch of bigger, brighter and louder venues. Thank goodness for its move to the calmer Hau Wo Street, because now we can actually have a proper sit-down meal and enjoy the food while it’s piping hot. The décor here might be simple and the plates might be from Ikea (we have the exact same set at home), but that’s pretty much what you’d expect from a mom-and-pop operation.
The prices for the pizzas start at $88 for a 10-inch and go all the way up to $188 for a 16-inch. You can take your pick of pepperoni, tropical Hawaiian, duck, seafood and a whole lot more for toppings—the vegetarians also get to enjoy meat-free margarita pizzas and Greek-style or fungi pies. Apart from the pizza, there are a whole lot of sides, starters and even main plates to choose from, with barbecue ribs, chicken wings, fish and chips, fried mussels and pastas on the menu.
The pizzas are delectable—thin-crust, with spotted, oozing cheese on top. We ordered a half-margarita, half-ham and mushroom 10-inch, and it was a crispy, sticky symphony of goodness. We also ordered a creamy version of spaghetti carbonara that was large enough to feed two. The sauces were a bit heavy but nice and savory, and the large mushroom slices were a good accompaniment to the al dente pasta. There’s a lot more on the menu that we’d like to try, so we’ll be back for a second round.
