Restaurant . Terrace, the contemporary Italian restaurant located on the 4th floor of Harbor City, Tsim Sha Tsui.
Alba, best known as the capital of white truffles, is located in the Piedmont region, Italy. Alba white truffles are the most notable among all other truffles and it is known as the white diamond of the gourmet world. Truffle from Alba is tested before exporting and Chef Michele, the Corporate Chef of DiVino Group, has long favored white truffle from this area for its supreme quality and superior flavor.
This 4-course white truffle menu offers diners a truly lavish and authentic Italian dining experience. Every dish is a masterpiece, its essence lies in the perfect blend of ingredients from the earth and the art of preparation. Unlike black truffle, complicated cooking will destroy the original flavor of white truffle. “It is a very versatile ingredient that instantly enhances the flavor of any dish it adorning, but it is also very fragile in nature,” said Chef Michele.
Freshness is also the key to making an excellent white truffle dish. For this, Chef Michele has been extra careful when handling the truffle; making sure it gives diner the “fresh from the ground and to the table” experience.
Among these fantastic dishes are: Starters – Poached “Altedo” Asparagus and fried Japanese organic egg served with white truffle and crispy toast AND Carpaccio of US beef tenderloin with rucola salad, artichokes in oil and Alba truffle shavings. Two pasta choices, Homemade egg tagliatelle tossed with artisanal mountain butter and petals of white truffle OR Carnaroli risotto with Franciacorta brut and Alba truffle. Last but not least, mouth-watering dessert Vanilla “Crema” ice-cream enriched with petals of Alba white truffles, to complete your meal wonderfully.
This menu really gives a harmonious symphony of ‘earthy’ taste, it is an ultimate indulgence for truffle aficionados, including myself,” enthuses Chef Michele.
