It’s the root of happiness and puts the fun in fungus – that’s right, we’re talking about the small balls of goodness, truffles. Call us pigs, because we can sniff out these bad boys anywhere (on second thought, please don’t call us that) – and OTTO Ristorante Brisbane has brought them to the forefront with their new truffle service, running until August.
We’re no stranger to the modern Italian joint, their mouth-watering dishes running rampant through our minds every time we go to grab our wilted lettuce lunch from the fridge. OTTO’s à la carte menu offers a range of rich pasta, meat and fresh seafood – and now, you’ve got the option to add Western Australian black truffle to everything while it’s in season!
As well as the power to add truffle to all your favourite meals, Head Chef Will Cowper has created several dishes with a focus on the delicacy, such as house-made fettuccini with slippery jack mushrooms, smoked ham hock carbonara and potato gnocchi with parmigiano reggiano.
Experience fireworks in your mouth on the 4th of July with an exclusive five-course degustation, featuring truffle-focused dishes, wine pairings and truffle gelato with hazelnut praline for $295pp, an event that no truffle fanatic should miss.
Get in quick to make your reservations, and just pig out.
