The recipient of three Michelin stars for the past seven years, not to mention being ranked 13th in Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2018, there’s no denying that 8½ is among one of the best. The vintage-style décor and ambient lighting create a seriously romantic vibe. Helmed by culinary master Umberto Bombana, the dishes are expertly made and curated as well as beautifully plated. Signatures include tuna tartare and homemade linguine. If you don’t want to splurge too much, the three-course lunch menus start from $780 and are totally worth it.
