Dine in Ultimate Sophistication as Newport Mall Launches PH’s 1st Truffle Festival at Resorts World Manila

During my visit to Milan and some towns in the Tuscany region, I made sure to stuff myself with all the truffle dishes I could get my hands with, and I also took home loads truffle infused butter and oil. In fact, I bought Italian foods more than any other things.

Read my Italian exploration at the link below.

In keeping up with my new-found love for truffle, I'm sharing with you this news where you too can enjoy truffle without even buying an plane ticket to Italy.  Enjoy truffle heaven at Resorts World Manila.

In line with its tradition of staging a gastronomic celebration every year, Newport Mall at Resorts World Manila concocts yet another mouth-watering surprise this September.

Truffle, deemed as one of the most luxurious and expensive food in the world, finds its way to Newport Mall with truffle-lovers getting the rare chance to taste an exquisite array of specialties made with this culinary gem hailed by many as the ‘diamond in the kitchen’.

Running from Sept. 1 to 30, gourmands can enjoy truffle-infused treats concocted by the renowned chefs of participating Newport Mall and Resorts World Manila restaurants. Each truffle-inspired dish is intended to bring diners to a whole new level of culinary indulgence.

Diners can start the day with a hearty brunch at Parmigiano Ristorante Pizzeria, and order the Fettuccine Ai Funghi Porcini Salsiccia e Tartufo and Filetto Di Carne con Tartufo. Fresh, handmade fettuccine is laden with wild mushroom varieties covered in truffle cream sauce, topped with Italian sausage, sliced black truffles, and freshly-shaved Parmigiano Reggiano.

The Sizzling Black Truffle Bulalo Steak at LUMU Filipino Kitchen demonstrates how truffles can add depth to traditional Pinoy comfort food. A sizzling steak plate featuring a generous cut of fork-tender beef shank with the marrow intact is swimming in truffle-infused gravy, and topped with potato allumettes and garlic crisps that altogether create a sinfully rich viand.

Truffle Festival is the latest gastronomic celebration to be launched by Newport Mall at Resorts World Manila. Since 2015, it has been selecting a culinary gem to be feted in a month-long gastronomic festival during September that explores and expands the ways it can be enjoyed.

The tradition got off to a sweet start with the Chocolate Festival where diners discovered that the seductive nature of chocolate goes well beyond desserts. Chefs at Newport Mall and Resorts World Manila restaurants put their talents to the test with the exotic, subtle flavors of matcha, and their culinary creativity was rewarded by the strong public reaction to the Matcha Festival of 2016. Filipino flavor took its turn in the spotlight with the Coco Fest in 2017. Perceived by locals as a common household ingredient, our chefs showed the coconut’s ability to add texture, richness, and depth to dishes.
