8 ½ Otto e Mezzo BOMBANA Shanghai is very generous in the complimentary bites offered to diners. Executive chef Alan Yu feels that the amuse bouche is an important part of the dining experience, sometimes surprising guests by serving an appetizer-size amuse bouche to kick off a meal. An example of one of Yu’s amuse bouche is prawn in fillo kataifi served with a citrus dressing. In addition to the dinner amuse bouche, complimentary "stuzzichini" snacks are offered to all guests who order drinks in the 8 ½ Otto e Mezzo bar. These gourmet snacks are constantly being updated according to the freshest produce and might include marinated salmon, foie gras torchon or lobster tartare on toast.
