TRUFFLE, deemed as one of the most luxurious and expensive food in the world, finds its way to Newport Mall with truffle-lovers getting the rare chance to taste an array of specialties made with this culinary gem hailed by many as the “diamond in the kitchen.”
Running until Sept. 30, the truffle festival features truffle-infused treats concocted by the renowned chefs of participating Newport Mall and Resorts World Manila restaurants.
Diners can start the day with a hearty brunch at Parmigiano Ristorante Pizzeria, and order the fettuccine ai funghi porcini salsiccia e tartufo and filetto di carne con tartufo. Fresh, handmade fettuccine is laden with wild mushroom varieties covered in truffle cream sauce, topped with Italian sausage, sliced black truffles, and freshly-shaved parmigiano reggiano.
The sizzling black truffle bulalo steak at LUMU Filipino Kitchen demonstrates how truffles can add depth to traditional Pinoy comfort food. A sizzling steak plate featuring a generous cut of fork-tender beef shank with the marrow intact is swimming in truffle-infused gravy, and topped with potato allumettes and garlic crisps that altogether create a sinfully rich viand.
Guests who want their truffle meal with rice will appreciate the garlic crab with truffled mushroom rice at The Red Crab Alimango House.
Given the truffle’s popularity in Italian cuisine, guests may have their fill of the flavor with Italianni’s array of four truffle-infused dishes: Italian truffle fries, truffle mushroom pizza, truffle mushroom risotto, and truffle chicken and mushroom.
Meanwhile, Impressions, RWM’s signature French fine dining outlet, delivers a truffle trifecta in its set menu of cold angel hair pasta with black truffle ponzu and caviar; mixed mushroom soup with black truffle duck liver ravioli; and Chilean seabass with black truffles, carrot risotto, herb salsa, and soy sauce cloud.
For truffle-rich snack options, guests can visit UCC and order black and white truffle fries— crisp potato wedges made more flavorful and edgy with black truffle bits, truffle oil, and parmesan cheese. For a truly satisfying snack, opt for the truffle mushroom pasta—linguine pasta, cooked al dente and tossed in white truffle oil, infused with mixed mushrooms, and finished with shredded parmesan cheese, with garlic bread served on the side. For those looking forward to an avant-garde dining experience, the truffle ramen at Mr. Kurosawa is an option.
