LucAle’s seasonal White Alba Truffle Menu features four exquisite dishes, each with a minimum of five grams of white truffle each.
A Scottona Beef Tartare (HK$580) with egg, horseradish mayonnaise and puffed rice for irresistible texture, is the perfect way to begin a truffle journey at LucAle. Experts in all things Italian, the restaurant’s recommended wine pairing is a Roero Arneis DOCG, Porello 2019 (HK$125) – a fresh white wine with aromatic herb notes to complement the dish.
Pumpkin Cream with a 63 degree slow-cooked egg, Avezzano potato foam and, of course, Alba truffle (HK$480) will tempt vegetarians and carnivores alike. Enjoy with a Langhe Pinot Nero DOC Poderi Colla 2013 (HK$138) – a classic-style Pinot Noir true to its Piedmont roots.
A classic, homemade Egg Tagliolini (HK$580) lets the truffle speak for itself. This simple yet comforting dish is a fantastic partner for a glass of Barbaresco DOCG, Rombone, Ada Nada 2012 (HK$278) which boasts truffle notes itself, offering a double hit of earthy aromatics.
Rossini’s Beef Tenderloin (HK$788) served with spinach, is an ultra-luxurious dish thanks to the added pairing of both foie gras and truffle. Barolo di Barolo Roagna 2013 (HK$398) is the best pour to pair with this elevated plate – a wickedly spicy wine with an ever evolving bouquet.
LucAle’s white truffle menu will be available until the end of the season.
