Since the beginning of this CoViD-19 situation, many of us have been working from home or social distancing, relying heavily on services like Deliveroo, UberEats and FoodPanda to keep us fed with our favourite restaurant meals. If you’re in the market to try something off your regular roster, this week’s new eats has you covered, for easy delivery or takeaway food options.
Classic pasta dishes at Pici
Want to carb load in the privacy of your own home? Hong Kong’s fan-favourite pasta bar Pici has your back, with its set lunches, dinners, brunches and even kids’ meals, available for both delivery via Deliveroo or takeaway from its outlets in Wan Chai, Central, Tsim Sha Tsui, Lai Chi Kok and Sha Tin.
Boasting fresh pasta made every day, some of our favourites from Pici include the Orecchiette (HK$130), cooked with fragrant Italian sausage, spicy n’duja and fresh cherry tomatoes; the Pappardelle (HK$140), which includes a scrumptious beef cheek ragu that is slow cooked for eight hours, topped with onion, celery and carrots; and finally the Ravioli Carbonara (HK$130), a riff on the classic dish made with egg yolk, ricotta, pecorino and guanciale.

Kinship’s new spring menu dishes
Kinship‘s new spring menu has us drooling in front of our screens, and fortunately for us, the eatery has just launched a new Grab and Go takeaway promotion, offering us a chance to indulge in chefs Chris Grare and Arron Rhodes’ inventive British-American cuisine at home. The menu highlights the duo’s love for travelling and discovering Asian ingredients, with dishes such as the Hokkaido scallop ceviche (HK$138) made with Thai pomelo, turmeric lime cream and puffed rice. There’s also a nod to the classic Hong Kong lo mai gai rice dumpling dish in the Spring Chicken (HK$225), with lap cheong sticky rice, market vegetables and shallot-brandy sauce. The milk chocolate cheesecake (HK$88) topped with hazelnut praline also sounds like a dessert that ticks all the boxes.
The takeaway service is available from Thursdays to Sundays, and guests ordering from the spring menu will get to tuck into any desserts or side dishes for HK$50, starters for HK$100 and any main courses at HK$200.
