Chef Josh Boutwood and The Bistro Group continue to cater to our quarantine cravings. This time, they’re introducing a new menu filled with scrumptious fried chicken and pizza, aka one of our constant comfort foods even sans pandemic. Meet ChowCiao, another endeavor that brings simple yet chef-driven food to your home.

“Chow symbolizes the act of eating and Ciao is the well-known Italian greeting for ‘hello.’ Italian-American cuisine has always been a favorite of the local market and I, myself, love this iconic combination,” said Boutwood.

ChowCiao’s Chipotle chicken is the perfect smokey dish

ChowCiao’s chicken line comes in five different flavors, including original and sweet barbeque. Those who love spicy food will surely enjoy buffalo, while those craving Japanese food might want to try Honey Miso and Furikake. If you’re looking for something a bit smokey and savory, Chipotle and Queso Fresco might be for you.

Pizza lovers will also get their comfort food fix as ChowCiao introduces both red and white pizzas on their menu. In case you didn’t know, the difference between the two lies in the existence of tomato sauce: White pizza doesn’t use one.

  • Margherita (tomato, mozzarella, basil)
  • Spicy Pepperoni (tomato, chili, pepperoni, mozzarella, oregano)
  • Prosciutto (tomato, mozzarella, oregano, arugula, prosciutto ham)
  • Three-meat (tomato, mozzarella, smoked bacon, fennel sausage, pepperoni, oregano)
