Fresh Black Truffle Sprinkles Pizza
Black Truffle, a gourmet gift from the mother earth, is renowned as “Diamond of the Kitchen” in European cuisines. Gourmands and gastronomes are obsessed with the unique aroma and taste of truffles, pairing this prime food with various ingredients in order to enjoy its ultimate flavour.
Assaggio’s Fresh Black Truffle Sprinkles Pizza comes with generously shaved premium Black Truffle – Tuber Melanosporum, together with handmade Italian sausage and 3 kinds of Italian Cheeses: Burrata, Buffalo Mozzarella and DOP Taleggio on a Roman style handmade pizza crust, finally a magical touch by shredded DOP Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese, truffle caviar sauce and fresh egg yolk, the perfect marriage of truffle aroma, savoury cheeses and all the texture will definitely impress you and your guests.
Fresh Black Truffle Sprinkles Pizza is priced at $628* each. Excel the “truffle-ness” by topping up $98* for two bottles of BOSCOVIVO Amber Ale made by Italian black truffle.
Hairy Crab Feast
It is now the best season of Hairy Crab! Assaggio introduces Yangcheng Lake Hairy Crab to two Italian traditional recipes, a fusion of seasonal Cantonese gourmet and Italian culinary skills.
First, be enticed by this creative match of Hairy Crab and Italian Pizza! Savour Supreme Hairy Crab Coral and Cheese Pizza ($328*) whilst the flavoursome and rich golden crab coral and crab meat is spread on a Roman style pizza crust with Mozzarella cheese and basil leaves. To enhance the umami and sweetness of the crab coral, just a few drops of Italian Balsamic vinegar will cast magic to the pizza.
Another creation: Hairy Crab and Herbs Spinosini ($238*) must not be missed! Hairy Crab coral and meat are surprisingly good match with the eggy Spinosini pasta! Together with garlic, cherry tomato, basil and Italian parsley, the pasta dish is of perfect balance and freshness.
