I recently asked Bryan what his top five favorite restaurants in Hong Kong were. The first two rolled off his tongue in an instant. "Sushi Shikon" (I'm not surprised, considering the best dish Bryan's ever had) and ½ Otto e Mezzo Bombana.
That's why I knew he wouldn't mind when I secretly booked it for his birthday, all while he was traveling in Europe for a business trip. He would return less than a week before his birthday.
It was arguably "slightly" risky. Although Hong Kong had switched to home quarantine at that time, Bryan still had to take a Covid test everyday for 5 days after returning from Europe. God forbid, what if he tested positive? What would I do with my reservation??
Thankfully, everything went smoothly and we were able to enjoy a lovely birthday dinner at ½ Otto e Mezzo Bombana. The meal was great, as always. I won't go into detail describing each dish again, since most of these dishes have been on the menu for a long time. You can read the post about our first time here (yet another Bryan birthday meal) for details.
Enjoy this (mostly) wordless post.
