Mediterranean inspiration at Trühvel.

 

The trendy Telliskivi area is bustling both day and night. Trühvel restaurant is no exception. It’s lunchtime and the restaurant is packed. We sit down and are not even offered a menu because most customers at this time of day order from the lunch menu. Lunch specials are posted weekly on their Facebook page. While the lunch special on that particular day did sound intriguing, we opted to taste a few dishes from the a la carte menu.

The menu starts with a selection of antipasti, which suit a glass of wine on their large outdoor terrace. We start with the goat’s cheese, which is served with pickled rhubarb, basil oil, and beetroot crisps - a new twist on a classic combination. To follow, the trout fillet cooked at 46C melts on the tongue and the asparagus, potato crisps, and cauliflower cream with horseradish sauce make good accompaniments.

If you come later in the day, after 15:00, you can enjoy something from the grill, or rather the Big Green Egg. Desserts on offer are beloved mediterranean classics like tiramisu. And don’t forget to try the coffee from Brick Coffee Roastery, which share the same space with Trühvel.
