The Artisan de la Truffe is a restaurant with an intimate but yet open setting which is brightly lit, welcoming and airy. On your visit, you’ll most definitely witness the panoramic evening view of Victoria Harbor.
You’ll get to see this scene through the floor and ceiling windows of the breathtaking Tsim Sha Tsui restaurant where you can try out the truffles.
It’s also noteworthy that their truffles are not heavily flavored. The available truffle flavor comes from the heating of the truffle and this is the major reason why truffle shavings are usually put on the top of dishes like pasta with the consideration that the fragrance and flavor will be carried into the dish.
You can choose to start off your truffle eating adventure by going for the Planche de L’Artisan which contains cheese, charcuterie and taramasalata assortment, and costs HK$258 which is approximately US$30
As you eat on, you’ll observe that the cheese comes with stronger truffle flavors in comparison to the meats which have a milder flavor and this can be accepted as a good balance.
There is also the Salade de Homard which also comes with asparagus and lobster which costs HK$188. You can also opt for the Tartare de Boeuf which is an Australian tenderloin tartare at HK$168
After eating, you’ll see that both aforementioned dishes contain truffle shavings as well as a little truffle oil, although the truffle flavors are mild. This is due to the fact that they are cold dishes. Therefore, the ingredients will not be overwhelmed by the truffle.
However, in the course of your adventure, you might find your major highlight to be the tagliatelle at HK$178.
It also comes with a cream sauce that contains truffles, and this also comes alongside a table-side truffle shaving service that enables diners to control the quantity of truffle they want to put on top of their pasta.
Finally, you could end your adventures with the desserts, notably, the truffle-infused creme brulee which costs HK$88.
The Artisan de la Truffe also provides an offer for mild truffle flavors in its dishes. Therefore, diners have the luxury of determining how much truffle can be added to their food.
