Edera, Holland Park

I love truffle.

I don’t eat them as often as I’d like to, thanks to their hefty price tag.

When we are at a restaurant with truffle on the menu, this is how the conversation goes…

Hubby: Oh they have truffle on the menu

Me: Yeah, I saw

Hubby: Do you want it?

Me: Hmm nah, it’s too expensive

Hubby: Do you want it?

Me: Nope, I don’t want it today

Hubby: Are you sure?

Me: Yes, I’m sure

Hubby: If you want it, just get it

Me: NO!! It’s too expensive

Hubby: Just order it

Me: ok

Back to Edera!

The restaurant is in the beautiful leafy Holland Park

A mound of truffles welcomes you as you enter the restaurant

To start….

Hubby ordered Minestrone soup. It arrived looking bland, and sadly it was quite bland.

Mine was a ball of buffalo mozzarella with grilled aubergines and courgettes

While the mozzarella was soft, creamy, and delicious…. the grilled aubergines and courgettes were quite under done.

For main course, char grilled fillet steak – cooked beautifully medium, exactly how we ordered it. The roast potatoes with rosemary were stunning.

And here it is!

The tagliolini arrives looking almost naked, slathered in rich butter sauce

And here she is, adorned in aromatic truffle shavings

Don’t you love the sound of truffle being freshly shaved in front of you?

And that aroma

*swoon*
