What makes superior truffle fries? Most would say that it all comes down to the aroma, flavour, and quality of fries. Since entering our food scene, truffle fries are a side dish that never seems to go out of style. Whether they’re paired with a burger, fresh seafood or even chicken and waffles, they’re a finger-licking pleasure. Here are our picks of the best truffle fries in Singapore!
SUPRMRKT is a cultural-culinary concept combining F&B, retail and art into a unique, multi-faceted casual experience. Their Truffle Fries ($16) with shaved parmesan and kombu have a slew of raving reviews! The shoestring fries are crisp, not overly oily and smell just like truffle heaven, while the kombu dust adds a nice layer of umami. Makes for a perfect snack or side dish!
2. Three Buns Quayside
Not many local joints will serve their truffle fries with actual shaved truffles, but Three Buns Quayside does! Their Truffle Cheese Fries JNR ($14) are double fried for extra crispness, and served with a unique truffle-infused cheese sauce, truffle aioli, shaved truffles and a dash of chives.
3. Dancing Crab
Dancing Crab is best known for their gastronomical mix of robust, American style seafood and the distinctive richness of Singapore seafood. However, their Truffle Fries ($9.90), complete with truffle sprinkles, are not to be missed out on. They’re flavourful and complement the fresh seafood amazingly!
Revelry is known for their sweet and savoury waffles, but their Truffle Fries ($9) deserve a shout out. They are double fried for extra crispness, and seem to be slightly thinner than the average shoestring fries. You can tell that they are very, very generous with their truffle oil! Some may find it a tad too oily, but personally we’re big fans! Topped with a generous shaving of parmesan, we wiped the plate clean in no time.
5. PS. Cafe
We can’t really talk about truffles fries in Singapore without bringing up PS. Cafe, since they were the ones who started off the trend here. The Truffle Shoestring Fries ($16) is the star here and they come in incredibly generous portions. However, the standard can vary across different outlets. At best they’re crisp and aromatic, but sometimes they can be not crisp enough, or lacking the truffle aroma. At worst, they’re lacking both.
6. Wildseed Cafe & Bar
Wildseed Cafe’s Truffle Mayonnaise Curly Fries ($14) steers away from the usual shoestring fries. Curly fries are made flavourful with a drizzle of truffle mayo, along with parmesan and spring onion. They have a very extensive menu of breakfast, lunch and dessert items, but we definitely recommend saving some space for their truffle fries!
7. Supply & Demand
Supply & Demand seems to be obsessed with fries, and we’re here for it. From Okonomiyaki Fries to Indomie Goreng Fries, the cafe has many creative spins on the humble potato dish. Of course we’re here to talk about their Garlic Truffle Fries ($12 for petite, $17 for regular) – these chunky cut babies are generously drizzled with truffle oil and topped with parmesan, roasted garlic and parsley.
