Maison de la Truffe
France's "house of the truffle" opens in Bangkok.
French for “house of the truffle,” the name of this restaurant speaks for itself. Maison de la Truffe in France has over 80 years of history behind it. Here, the menu revolves around one highly-priced ingredient, truffle.
Step inside and you’ll see a shop showcasing truffle products, from truffle paste and truffle-infused olive oil to truffle slicers and chocolate truffles.
As for the restaurant, you can watch kitchen staff in action through a large window while they cook Western classics like pumpkin soup (B200), truffle omelet (B720), truffle risotto (B950), pan-fried sea bass (B650) and veal fillet mignon (B3,200).
Bangkok is the first location outside of France for the brand, and French chef Monara Pres has created some unique dishes just for us, including a truffled panna cotta with mango sticky rice (B370). Topping each dish with shavings of fresh truffle sets you back an extra B200-550.
