If you still can't get over your addiction to these deep fried snacks doused in truffle oil, check out our list of top spots to get your fix.
Truffle fries may have gotten their fair share of flak over the years for their use of truffle oil, which is basically olive oil made aromatic to resemble the real, earthy deal, but they’re still a popular mainstay on the brunch menus of eateries around the island. Fresh seafood, handmade pasta, delish biryani and fluffy pancakes are great and all, but sometimes you just get cravings for something as basic as truffle fries. Can’t resist pairing your burger with a plate of deep-fried chips fresh from the fryer? Tuck into these variations, which come with everything from parmesan and garlic to rosemary and black truffle.
Wildseed Cafe & Bar
At this quaint alfresco spot in the secluded Seletar Aerospace Park, the all-day menu is loaded with hearty plates of pancakes, beef pies and sandwiches. Best part? It’s upped its game with curly fries made flavourful by a drizzle of truffle mayo, along with parmesan and spring onion.
