Umberto Bombana is the king of white truffles in Asia. 8 ½, created by Japanese interior designer Jumpei Yamagiwa, is located in a central position inside the elegant Alexandra House. It is something more than a simple restaurant. The refined atmosphere, outstanding service, and up-to-date wine list with its depth of labels and hard-to-find vintages would make it exceptional anywhere.   Umberto has managed to create an experienced kitchen brigade that gets it right every time. The service works perfectly, with dishes curated down to the individual detail for a demanding, sophisticated, high-profile clientele. During our two visits we noted that the kitchen is influenced by local spices, but dishes are made with excellent ingredients and are technically perfect. Among the dishes we tasted, there were two standouts, marinated tuna tartare with fantastic citrus fruit, tofu emulsion and royal ossetra caviar, and baby lamb with aromatic herbs, cooked to perfection.
