Located in Hong Kong’s bustling Wan Chai district, Pirata has introduced a range of new wholesome, seasonal dishes to the city’s lovers of Italian cuisine.
Pirata’s new additions to the menu feature rustic recipes, fresh ingredients and authenticity. Among the new additions to the small dishes is a traditional beef carpaccio, with thin slices of beef topped off with rocket salad, cherry tomatoes, shaved parmesan and a drizzle of zesty lemon dressing; and the classic and crispy Italian calamari fritti, served with a chunky homemade salad tartare. Using Pirata’s favourite Italian vermouth, the rich and flavourful clams with vermouth is served with tomato, saffron and vegetables.
New handmade pastas on the menu include the eggplant mezzelune, with eggplant and smoked scamorza encased in fresh pasta graced with homemade pesto; and the risotto with pumpkin and sausage, made with acquerello rice, luganiga sausage, seasonal roasted pumpkin, white wine, butter and parmesan cheese.
Perfect for sharing, the grilled giant tiger prawns are served with a vibrant salsa verde sauce, garlic, and topped off with parsley. Available in either a half or full portion, the succulent roasted lamb shank is plated up with rustic baked potatoes. Other new additions to the menu include a side of caprese salad, sausage crostinis, and gnocchetti with pistachio pesto and blue prawns. www.pirata.hk
