The earthy aroma, distinct flavour and one-of-a-kind taste that has a special kick to it, so special that whenever someone says truffle - we eagerly wait with our mouths wide open.
July is known to be truffle month and to celebrate this special month, most restaurants are celebrating by creating special dishes with truffle flavours. Vanilla Luxury, on the other hand, is sticking to the classics.
If there is one truffle dish that truly brings out its great flavours, it’s truffle fries. So, we went down on a little truffle trail, tasting the best of Singapore’s truffle fries and narrowing down the choices for you. Our main criteria? Consistent flavours - whether it be in the fry itself or the dip that goes with it. Here are our best picks:
1. PS. Cafe
PS. Cafe is hands-down the most popular truffle fries in sunny Singapore! Maybe it has something to do with the fact that they were one of the first ones to have truffle fries on their menu, way before the craze had hit Singapore! These fries are fried to perfection and generously topped with truffle oil, parmesan cheese and is big enough to be shared by 2 -3 people.
You might be interested to know that PS.Cafe on Ann Siang Hill runs regular ‘Truffle Thursday’ nights in celebration of the glorious ingredient. Guests of Truffle Thursday will be given free-flow Truffle Fries when they order drinks and food. Find out more at https://www.pscafe.com/event-calendar/.
