The pay-off from this frosty weather is coming in the form of a very productive truffle season. From truffle hotcakes to truffle cocktails, eateries around the city are packed with the black gold this season. Now Darling Square is serving up a winter warming special in the form of a Truffle Trail and a host of Sydney favourites are getting in on the action.
Truffle Trail at Darling Square
If you’re truffle hunting at the moment, you’ll find everything your taste buds desire and then some at the vibrant district of Darling Square. Head to Auvers Cafe for truffle French toast brioche with truffle curd and truffle ice cream. Also on the menu is duck truffle soup and truffle mac and cheese burger. Or you could simply opt for the three-course truffle set menu and enjoy a host of their signature dishes.
Over at popular Vietnamese eatery, Hello Auntie you’ll find choc chip cookie sandwiches filled with truffle marshmallow and strawberry gel, egg noodles in truffle sauce and more.
Intimate Japanese diner IIKO Mazesoba is bringing the truffle goods with wagyu truffle mazesoba and karaage mazesoba with ‘black’ charcoal, batter fried karaage and truffle mayonnaise. Another fabulous highlight comes in the form of Truffalo wings aka buffalo wings drenched in your favourite sauces. Find them at Wingboy along with truffle-infused cheese sauce and grated truffle and truffle mac and cheese.
It’s almost worth braving the cold for the insane dishes on offer when truffle season rolls around every year. It’s also not around for too long so you’ll want to squeeze in a visit to the city asap.
Head to their official website for all the details.
