The best white truffle menus in HK this season

izakaya Zuma

Fancy going modern and untraditional? Contemporary Japanese izakaya Zuma has created a new white truffle menu with creative flair.

A selection of six white truffle dishes will be available à-la-carte, while additional servings of this Italian delicacy will be available too. Every dish is served with generous measures of freshly shaved white truffle.

Inventive creations such as “aonori toast with sea urchin” is built up on a homemade aonori and green tea brioche, toasted then infused with smoke from the grill, the plate is then layered with a kombu seaweed cream; thereby combining the sweetness of the sea urchin and earthiness of the truffle. “Seared toro with caviar, wafu sauce and hana hojiso“, served with lightly salted Kristal caviar and a crisp wafu sauce, is further elevated by the aroma of the decadent white truffle shavings.

A highlight of the menu is the show-stopping “Japanese wagyu tataki, truffle ponzu”, which melts in the mouth at the very first bite. The final touch is a “white truffle and cheese pancake soufflé with caramelised pecan crunch and lemon sorbet” – the flavours and textures are uniquely combined to deliver a satisfying experience.
