They started off with an amuse bouche of a salmon roll with coconut cream and caviar. Literally a single, small bite, of smooth, melt in your mouth salmon and a hint of saltiness from the caviar.

|Roast Kinki Fish with Calvisius Elite Caviar|
The roast kinki fish with fruit tomato, Calvisius elite caviar, herb and citrus dressing, was very light with a hint of saltiness coming from the caviar, while the royal scampi with confit purple potato and chanterelle mushroom were perfectly cooked, meaty and juicy, balanced with the mushrooms. The artisanal trenette with testun cheese, roast porcini mushroom was cooked al dente, lightly dressed in a creamy cheesy sauce with nicely sautéed earthy tasting mushrooms.
Overall we enjoyed our meal and I will never forget that amazing alba white truffle raviolo, as it’s not likely that I’ll have the chance to eat that much alba white truffle ever again in my life. Although their prices are on the higher end that I'm used to for Italian food, if you ever find yourself in Hong Kong hankering for a classy Western meal that most definitely will not disappoint, give 8 ½ Otto e Mezzo Bombana a try, as it will definitely satisfy your cravings.
