CIAK - In The Kitchen Attained Michelin One Star


CIAK - In The Kitchen, Hong Kong’s first refined Italian trattoria is honoured with one star by the authoritative Michelin Guide Hong Kong & Macau 2015. Under the leadership of three-star Michelin Chef Umberto Bombana and his elite team of chefs, CIAK - In The Kitchen earns the accolade merely ten months after opening, making it the very first and only refined trattoria awarded with one star in Hong Kong, and among the city’s three Italian restaurants achieving star-level status. CIAK- In The Kitchen’s menu has seduced by offering honest and comforting cuisine using top-quality ingredients in a homely environment, as described by the Michelin guide: “The decoration is simple yet contemporary and the atmosphere is bustling and busy. The food focuses on the tastes of an Italian home and the produce is available to take away.”  CIAK - In the Kitchen offers authentic Italian food and lifestyle, where guests can start off an evening with an Aperitivo and complimentary Stuzzichini at the bar before sharing an oven-baked pizza made of imported organic flour, lovingly and naturally fermented for 36 hours. The trattoria also boasts various open kitchens serving daily baked bread, delightfully sweet pastries and fresh hand-made pasta.  The charcoal grill, lauded as one of the best in town, is another highlight that impresses with its traditional Italian homemade sausage, Australian full-blood Wagyu and US Brandt sirloin seared to perfection. “I am very excited that CIAK - In The Kitchen has achieved one Michelin star in such a short period of time”, says Chef Bombana. “Our concept is to provide high quality Italian casual dining at a reasonable price, a cosy place that people keep coming back to. We are glad that this is well received by the Michelin inspectors and the public.”
