Ten-Second Takeaway

Beloved Truffles, a chain of resto-cafes, reigns supreme because it has time-and-again proved that good {comfort} food that makes your palate sing, need not cost the earth and the skies above.

Compact cafes that offer comfortable seating and not much of wriggle room. All the Truffles sport a pleasant ambience and are almost always filled with the chatter of the crowds that pour in.

Fuel Station

There’s rarely anything on the Truffles menu that will disappoint you. It’s a good thing to know since you will be flooded by choice here. So, go ahead, throw caution to the wind. While there’s no booze in sight {that means that you won’t have to pay crazy-high taxes}, you can sip on decadent cold coffees, iced teas, and icy granitas. If you are going for something light, that leaves plenty of space for the food that you’ve ordered, settle for the Ice Tea or the Black Granita. Both come with cooling, refreshing flavours.

However, if you are looking to make a meal out of your drink. We recommend the Ferrero Rocher, a super-rich cold coffee that blends espresso, chocolate sauce, Ferrero Rocher, hazelnut syrup and ice cream. Clearly, this isn’t for the calorie counters!

Burger Shack  

Truffles’ long line of burgers occupies ‘first among equal’ status on the cafe’s menu. It’s a favourite with patrons and we don’t see any reason why you won’t love them as well. Prefer something classic? Then, the Lamb Burger, with a generously spiced patty and the crunch of lettuce will do you good. Or sign up for the Lamb Cheese Burst Burger – gooey cheese mixed with minced patty. On healthy days, we opt for the Tandoori Chicken burger where a lean piece of juicy and spiced meat sits in between the buns.

Looking for other options? The Devil’s Chicken, shredded chicken tossed about in onions, bell peppers and soy sauce, makes for a delicious starter. For main course, the Chicken Diane, made with a fillet that’s layered on with chicken mince and char-grilled before being dressed up in a mushroom or a pepper sauce, is a worthy choice. We also love the crumb-fried Chicken Cordon Bleu, where the chicken is wrapped up in salami and cheese before hitting the fryer.

So We’re Thinking…

Come with a big appetite when you drop by Truffles. But come armed with patience as they don’t do reservations and the wait can be long. If you want to skip the crowds head here at 3pm or when the shutters open at 11 in the morning.

#LBB Tip
