The best white truffle menus in HK this season

Octavium

Sister restaurant to 8½ Otto e Mezzo Bombana, the only three Michelin-starred Italian restaurant outside of Italy, Octavium is helmed by Chef Umberto Bombana, hailed as “The King of White Truffles”, and executive chef Silvio Armanni. Welcoming the white truffle season, Armanni has designed a dedicated menu of white truffle delicacies to showcase the authentic, traditional Italian way of savouring the prestigious fungus.

Most of the seasonal dishes are deceptively simple – this is always the key to savour the natural taste of white truffle. “Italian organic fried egg – savoy cabbage & Alba white truffle” is a classic choice, as is: “Tagliolini – Alba white truffle, parmesan cheese & butter emulsion”.

“Nougat Semireddo – vanilla sauce & candied orange, with Alba white truffle” is the dessert to round off the meal. Almonds and pistachios in the nougat add extra crunchiness; Italian classic semifreddo topped with the subtleness of vanilla sauce and candied orange helps usher in the full flavour of Alba white truffle.

The restaurant offers a comprehensive wine list with hundreds of Italian labels. You can go for the wine pairing option with the white truffle dishes to complete the tasting journey.

Address: 8/F, 22 Des Voeux Road, Central, Hong Kong
