Lifetime Achievement Award” given by the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants team this year.
"Shouldn't someone receiving an 'Lifetime achievement award' be a little hmm... older?" whispered someone (who shalt remain nameless) as Chef Bombana was making his thank-you speech at the beginning of the reception. Well, this might be true in most cases, but for Chef Bombana, I think everyone in the room would agree that was a well-deserved recognition, for what he has done both in the kitchen and outside. I was grateful to have some of the most amazing meals here in the past, and have the opportunity to celebrate with the man himself on this evening with such fine display of Italian cuisine right in our city, and look forward to more of his food (and truffles) for the years to come.
