Adventure #200: 8 1/2 Otto e Mezzo BOMBANA

I finally made it to Otto 8 1/2. After missing it the last time, I never made it back until today. I have been here many time for lunch but this is the first time for dinner.  We arrived early so it is nice and quiet inside.

It is white truffle season but I am not a fan of white truffle, so we ordered from the main menu.

Complementary pre-starter of salmon and carvier. Yum.

Roast octopus and roast artichoke with lemon dressing. Very delicious.  Love the combination of the octopus and the artichoke.

G had roast duck foie gras with piedmont hazel sauce.  Rich and creamy. Not thinking about cholesterol tonight.

Roast blue lobster with sea urchin and lobster emulsion. Really enjoyed the lobster. Didn't quite taste the sea urchin in the sauce.

Tajima beef tongue and cheek braised in red wine with blackberry and spices compote. Another rich dish.  Meat was melt-in-your-mouth soft.

Can't remember the name of this dessert but it was beautifully presented.  And wonderfully refreshing after all the rich food. A good choice.

G said the soufflé here is a must have, so that's what he had.  And he was right!
Complementary petite 4 or in the case 3. 

Food was great.  Very pricey though.  Can't help but missed the wonderful food we had in Europe.  But this is HK, got to pay rent. Nevertheless, a great experience.
