Sitting at the top of LKF’s California Tower, Italian restaurant Aria is offering two dishes, the first of which is a ‘Tribute to Life’ ($688). And if it wasn’t obvious already, this dish is all about eggs: scrambled Livornese egg from Tuscany with potato mousseline, Baeri caviar and ikura, topped with Alba white truffle and a tuile dentelle for texture. The second dish is an aged risotto with Jerusalem artichoke, hairy crab seasoned with aged xeres vinegar, and white truffle shavings ($688). A box of selected white truffles is also available by the table for guests to choose and shave onto their favourite dishes ($98/gram and $88/gram for over ten grams).
As the season for white truffle descends upon us all, this fragrant fungi has filled the air with its distinct, earthy aroma (it’s the truffle, we swear!). Fortunately for the truffle inclined, some of Hong Kong’s best restaurants are now offering some stellar white truffle dishes and menus that are worth foraging the city for. The season, which starts now and ends (usually) around the end of November to early December, sees some classic, and some creative dishes, and there’s even a cocktail to truly get your truffle on too.
