Given we’re in the depths of winter, it would be rude not to partake in a little bit of truffle consumption—especially if that truffle is coming at you for no extra charge.
Alongside burgers the team has a great range of both smoked, and pickled sides for you to attach to that delicious meal, and innovation has definitely been a big part of the success of Smoke & Pickles. We were on board when they launched their Reuben burger in 2018, and it’s damn good.
Right now though, if you’re keen on some fresh truffle, all you need to do is ask. Smoke & Pickles always have the Truffle & Mushroom burger on their menu, but right now if you ask for ‘fresh truffle’ when you order, they’ll upgrade your burger with freshly shaved truffle from Manjimup, Western Australia. It’s that easy.
The Truffle & Mushroom, if you’re not across it, features two beef patties, truffles and roast garlic aioli, locally-foraged pine mushroom ketchup, fried enoki mushroom, and Parmigiano Reggiano.
The truffle upgrade is available until Sunday 4 August, so get in fast.
