Case Tartufo has been around since 2010 but moved to Scarlet Hotel from Forum Gallery a couple of years back. A wise move, given their previous location at a mall didn't exactly fit their profile. We visited the family-run restaurant with our family for KW's birthday and had a lovely experience, thanks to the friendly service and hearty food. The restaurant specializes in truffle-d dishes but it pays to note, their dishes are elevated with a thoughtful touch of truffles, and they don't use truffles for the sake of using truffles. Ahhh, truffles are my spirit animal (or fungi) so truffle anything is half the battle won.
The steak was served with sautéed green beans and we ordered another side of sautéed spinach to get our green quotient up.
Beef, carbs, mushrooms. You can't get any better than this.
For desserts, I knew for sure I wanted to try their tiramisu. It wasn't groundbreaking but still a delightful dessert.
Accompanied with a scoop of smooth icicle-free gelato, their fig tart was a beautiful slice to be had. Sweet, buttery and incredibly homely.
The restaurant surprised us with a lemon cheesecake when they realized we were celebrating KW's birthday. It was a wee bit too tart for KW, but perfect for me! What can I say, I'm a sucker for a pucker.
