|Rib (for two)|
I could go through every dish we had and try and tell you how good everything was, but I'm lazy, so I'm just going to tell you that everything was divine - and I'm not lying. (I'm lazy but I'm no liar, mmkay?) This is one of Hong Kong's best restaurants, and it has a jam-packed booking calendar to prove it. I'm tempted to say it's never too early to book.
So I'm not going to go through every dish in detail. Quite frankly, it's also because I've forgotten exactly what we had. It was just one of those meals where we ate so well and had such a fine evening that all you remember is that it was excellent and there was nothing really to fault.
[edit: plus, it's no secret Otto is great, I don't even know why I wrote this post! Probably just to show off some pictures]
|Roast John Dory|
I guess, if I had to complain, one thing that was a bit weird was the portion size. We had to order the spaghetti because the original main course (John Dory, above) was too small. (Oh and the obnoxious, drunk, overcrowded group on the next table... sigh)
Since having it on my first visit, I haven't been able to resist the temptation of ordering this steak. (I think it's Angus??) It's on the bone, to share between (at least) 2. They carve up the fleshy bits, plate it up (see 2 pics above and opening pic) then separately, bring the bones and other offcuts. You can't see any obvious Wagyu-esque marbling, but it's so tender and feels marbled in the mouth. It's also perfectly cooked - our medium was deep pink inside, with so many rich, beefy juices (as opposed to buttery fat), it's a real steak with unreal finesse.
