Default A problem

Suppose we have the following position

-- -- BK BR -- -- BN BR
BP BP -- BB -- BP BP --
-- -- -- BB -- BQ -- BP
-- -- -- BP -- -- WN --
-- -- -- WP -- WB -- WN
-- -- -- -- WP WB WP --
WP WP -- -- -- WP -- WP
WR -- -- WQ WK -- -- WR

Black has just moved ...h6. What is the best move for White?
Is it Nxf7 or Bxd6?
Thanks,

Marco

FEN: 2kr2nr/pp1b1pp1/3b1q1p/3p2N1/3P1B1N/4PBP1/PP3P1P/R2QK2R w KQ -

Could there be a black knight missing? For example, on c6?

If not, almost anything wins for White since he is a piece up. Both
Nxf7 and Bxd6 are winning hands down.

1. Bxd6 hxg5 2. Rc1+ Bc6 3. Bg4+ Rd7 4. Be5 or
1. Nxf7 Qxf7 (2...Bb4+ 3. Kf1 Bb5+ 4. Kg2 Qxf7 5. Qc2+ Bc6 6. Bg4+ Rd7
7. Ng6 threatening Nxh8 and Ne5) 2. Bxd6 wins a pawn when the black
king is in a difficult position. For example 2...Ne7 (wants to block a
check on the c-file with the knight) 3. Bxe7 Qxe7 4. Ng6 Qb4+ 5. Qd2
Qxd2+ 6. Kxd2 Rhe8 7. Bxd5 with a huge material plus for White.
