After the successful Matcha and Chocolate festivals in the previous years, Resorts World Manila brought in another gastronomic celebration filled with truffle-infused cuisines at the first-ever Truffle Festival.
For the whole month of September, Resorts World Manila Chefs, together with RWM Signature Restaurants, highlights truffles, the darling of cuisines, as they bring us the Truffle Festival.
Resorts World Manila Truffle Festival
Loved for its unique aroma and taste, did you know that truffle is a rare delight, and that they only grow in specific soil living inside tree roots? Hence, they are sought-after, and expensive too, among other reasons.
We recently bought a small bottle (55ml) of black truffle oil at Queen Victoria market in Melbourne for AU$20 (Php 774). In the Philippines, it’s hard to find an authentic pure truffle oil.
For the aforementioned Truffle Festival, participating restaurants each crafted at least one specialty feature dish using truffle. These restaurants include the following:
- UCC Cafe
- Lumu Filipino Kitchen
- Parmigiano Ristorante Pizzeria
- The Red Crab
- Mr. Kurosawa
- Impressions (RWM’s French restaurant)
Moving forward, don’t miss Mr. Kurosawa‘s Truffle Ramen (photo above) which had a good broth and one of the best truffle ramen you’ll tatse.
It also won the media choice award in the press conference held a few weeks ago.
Resort World Manila‘s very own Impressions fine-dining restaurant came up with three must-try truffle dishes:
- Chilean Seabass with Black Truffles Carrot Risotto, Herb Salsa and Soy Sauce Cloud (photo above)
- Mixed Mushroom Soup with Black Truffle
- Cold Angel Hair Pasta with black truffle ponzu caviar
Next in line is a long-time RWM resident restaurant Parmigiano.
They featured a delightful pasta and pizza duo called Fettucine Ai Funghi and Parmigiano Ristorante Pizzeria!
Short for ‘LUigi MUhlach‘, LUMU restaurant featured a unique Sizzling Black Truffle Bulalo Steak that is both visually appetizing and delicious to the taste.
It’s actually our second favorite in the Truffle Fest.
Lastly, Italianni’s and UCC join the fray with the former’s Truffle Mushroom Pizza and Truffe Chickem and Mushroom Pasta. The latter offers the UCC Black and White Truffle Fries.
Seats For Two Thumbs Up
Seat For Two‘s favorite among all the featured truffle dishes is The Red Crab‘s Garlic Crab with Truffled Mushroom Rice (1st photo above).
It’s a complete dish with a freshly caught whole crab sitting on a mixed fare of truffle rice. The rare combo turned out to be surprisingly good for the palate.
