It’s that time of year again: truffle season.

For that intense, inimitable earthy taste, you’ll find so many Sydney establishments whipping up dedicated dishes and all-out truffle menus this season. Sydney's truffle creativity has reached new heights and our bodies are absolutely ready for all of those indulgent and full-bodied flavours.

Here are the best truffle menus in Sydney (so far).

Three Williams

Redfern

Three Williams 2018 truffle menu was epic. If you missed out, the good news is they’re backing it up in 2019 with bigger, better, richer truffle creations. There’ll be seven dishes to choose from a full menu of truffle genius. On said menu is a truffle mac and cheese croissant stuffed with a truffle mac and cheese croquette, jamon, Napoletana sauce and topped with shaved truffle and a poached egg. There’s also a truffle and provolone sausage, waffle fries with fresh truffle and truffle French toast with actual truffle ice-cream and popping candy.

Available: From 1 June.

Handpicked Wines Cellar Door

Chippendale

If the words "flaming truffle pasta" send you into a tailspin, you're going to want to hit-up Handpicked Cellar Door this winter. Their hosting a fully-fledged Madame Truffles takeover, which is set to feature a truffle masterclass and wine tasting (on 18 July) and a Sunday arvo truffle happy hour, where you can learn all about these hyped-up earthy morsels. Handpicked have a whole host of other truffle specials to order too, including truffle-spiked cheese and charcuterie and the aforementioned flaming truffle pasta (a dish that has us wondering if 70s-style flambé making a comeback?)

Available: From 13 June. 

Butter

Surry Hills, Parramatta

Leave it to the legends at Butter to give us what could be the season's most extra truffle menu. This winter, they’ve got a trio of very tasty truffle items and upgrades—add truffle to your fried chicken ramen, or your fried chicken sandwich. The real hero here is the hot truffle doughnut, topped with fresh Manjimup truffles from Western Australia and aforementioned truffle honey butter. Let’s be honest, it’d be a shame to end off the season without a hot truffle doughnut.

Available: From 13 June. 

New Shanghai

Ashfield, Chatswood and Sydney CBD

From this month until truffle season is done, New Shanghai will be dishing out what might be the ultimate truffle invention: truffle dumplings. As well as truffle xiao long bao and pot stickers, there’ll be truffle and mushroom wonton soup and truffle fried rice.

Available: From 1 June.

The Gantry

Walsh Bay

Coming up on Wednesday 19 June, The Gantry will be celebrating the start of the Canberra Region Truffle Festival by hosting a next-level six-course truffle degustation. It may be a little pricey at $210 per person, but trust us—you’re in for a treat at this one-hatted Walsh Bay spot. Each dish will showcase truffle from our local truffle regions (Canberra and the Southern Highlands), paired with wine from NSW and Canberra-based wineries. Expect truffle linguine or baked camembert stuffed with truffle and a fresh baguette. All created by head chef Thom Gorringe, if you’re into truffles—you won’t want to miss this. Book a spot right here

Available: Wednesday 19 June, 7pm. 

Kingsleys

Woolloomooloo  

Curious to know what a truffle negroni might taste like? Whether or not the world asked for such a creation, Kingsleys has created said cocktail as part of the winter truffle bar—and to be honest, we're glad it exists. Made with Stone Pine Black truffle gin, Campari, Carpano Antica, fresh truffle, salt, it's a welcome winter upgrade on a cant-go-wrong classic. Also on offer is a truffle martini and truffle old fashioned, and bar snacks like karaage chicken with truffle ranch dressing, white truffle cacio e pepe and parmesan and truffle fries. 

Available: From 13 June. 

Devon

Surry Hills, Barangaroo and North Sydney

Devon has brought their limited-edition truffle menu back, because winter in Sydney would not be right without this absolute gem. Head into any of the three Devon outposts and order up a truffle egg sando or the truffle sundae. Another truffle dish to try this year is Devon's Spanish broken eggs with Kipfler potatoes, romanesco and truffle.

Available: From 2 June. 

Messina

Darlinghurst

Thanks to chef Remi Talbot, Messina’s Creative Department is heading up a full truffle degustation that is eight courses long (um, wow). Each dish is paired with a drink that’ll bring the truffle flavour out in a better light. From roasted shiitake and houjicha tea gelato to mud crab pasta with egg yolk and black truffle sauce, to the roasted kombu and liquorice gelato, citrus and black truffle compote—this will be an all-around truffle spectacular. Head here for more info. 

Available: 4 - 13 July, 2019. 

Salt Meats Cheese

Circular Quay, Bondi, Cronulla, Dee Why, Broadway and Drummoyne

Salt Meats Cheese have made their way into the truffle circles with their exclusive Wednesday night cheese wheel pasta sessions. Infused with truffle, and at $25 per person, this deal is too good to pass up. But if you happen to stumble into an SMC venue on another day, grab their iconic beer battered fries with parmesan, aioli and a smattering of truffle for your fix.

Available: Wednesday evenings.
