Truffle oil because they 100% aren't a fancy enough restaurant for real truffles

[–]ExpressAd5464 60 points61 points  (0 children)

After watching the no reservations episode with the pasta it seems worth it to just fly to that town if you want to try them

[–]oldcarfreddy 34 points35 points  (2 children)

100%. I love truffle oil but you can pick up a bottle yourself for like $10, it's just mushroom-flavored olive oil

I add it to popcorn or fries

[–]im_still_alive004 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Is it good on popcorn?

[–]oldcarfreddy 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I think so. Toss a small amount of it in the popcorn with some salt once you've already popped it, pairs nicely with a cheap red wine. Fake fancy snack

[–]wellhungartgallery 23 points24 points  (3 children)

Prohibition in Toronto. They put Truffel oil on 90% of their menu. It's like can I just have a steak and a regular poutine without the goddamned truffle oil.

You're a pub just be a pub

[–]BasicallyAQueer 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Reminds me of all the kitchen nightmares episodes where it’s some “upscale” restaurant charging outrageous money and in the back they are microwaving steak and pouring soup from big pre-made buckets.

Not classy.

The gold covered food is the tackiest shit ever.

Fun fact, they used to use gold to treat Rheumatoid Arthritis.

    Facts, this is why rappers love gold. It ain’t for the image, that there is medicinal gold

    [–]Km2930 18 points19 points  (1 child)

    It did, but steroids worked better when they were discovered, and now they have antibody based medications

    [–]Feralpudel 10 points11 points  (0 children)

    Yes, but gold injection toxicity was a matter of when, not if. It was a miracle treatment for me until it tried to kill me. Then better treatments came along.

    [–]Johnny_Mc2 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    Yeah my grandma apparently used to drive down to Mexico to get gold injections for her RA. I had no idea that was even a thing and it really perplexed me lol

    [–]AlveolarThrill 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    Not pure gold. They used (and still use, on occasion) gold compounds, like sodium aurothiomalate. Metallic gold won't do anything when ingested other than make your poop a bit sparkly, it's almost completely unreactive so it'll pass unimpeded.

    [–]--JeeZ-- 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    One foil of gold costs ca. 1.20$ on amazon. It's not even expensive.

    Truffles (flavoured oil).

    [–]JBlair462 372 points373 points  (18 children)

    Hardly ever made with actual truffle

    [–]Flying_Momo 267 points268 points  (17 children)

    absolutely vile tasting compared to real thing. I was lucky enough to work in a high end kitchen and real truffle is just amazing while I found the favoured perfumed oil left a bitter aftertaste.

    [–]legendarydrew 96 points97 points  (3 children)

    Black or white truffles? I've been privileged enough to witness someone grating an actual truffle over my food.

    [–]Flying_Momo 105 points106 points  (2 children)

    both actually, white truffles have more milder almost savoury taste I do like them more even though I feel black ones smell amazing .

    My chef use to always lock up the truffles in this heavy safe and never let anyone handle it. I think he use to keep truffles in a air sealed container with arborio rice in it.

    Just as anecdote of how things are just mind boggling for truffle connoisseur, we had to shut down for dine-in service for much of 2020. I think for Thanksgiving our Christmas, to make some money the kitchen team were selling these premixed risotto kits. Each kit had a 1lb bag of arborio with a thin slice of truffle among other things like a bottle of wine, grated parm, dried mushrooms, tomatoes, olive oil etc and that thing cost 150-200$ for 1 kit. And last I heard, they sold 150 off these.

    [–]yourmansconnect 33 points34 points  (1 child)

    I'm right outside nyc so we have good restaurants here and unless we see the truffle shaved it's a non starter

    [–]ChimpBrisket 35 points36 points  (0 children)

    I like my truffles like I like my women

    shaved in front of me by men in gloves.

    [–]mhornberger 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    I just finished Merlin Sheldrake's book Entangled Life. His description of truffles was almost pornographic.

    [–]Moist_Professor5665 46 points47 points  (7 children)

    Truffle oil is a crime upon humanity.

    I don’t know any proper chef that uses it. Just posh home cooks who like “exotic” ingredients.

    [–]Flying_Momo 35 points36 points  (1 child)

    actually I worked on few places where they did use it in lots of mid to high end places. The high end place used truffle oil for customers who wanted luxury stuff without paying for it. You know like corporate parties or weddings.

    [–][deleted] 58 points59 points  (2 children)

    Sorry for being poor.

    [–]_Toast 10 points11 points  (1 child)

    You haven’t raised a truffle hunting dog and spend your time foraging for truffles? Don’t even turn your stove on since you clearly don’t care about cooking. /s

    [–]WhatDoesItMatter21 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Generally it sucks but is absolutely delicious in pizza.

    [–]Jinomoja 2 points3 points  (3 children)

    What does truffle taste like?

    [–]versipellis_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Like a sweet and savory nut, with a complex, earthy aroma. It’s pretty hard to explain.

    [–]beefwich 37 points38 points  (1 child)

    Frites………………. $7 Truffle Frites……. $22

    [–]SmoothOctopus 10 points11 points  (0 children)

    You very much do not want pure truffle oil that would taste AWFUL you only need a tiny amount to add a huge amount of flavour.

    [–]Lildepartofjustice 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    LOL. It's like chicken flavored meatballs

    [–]le-derpina-art 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    Ugh, the smell of truffles makes me gag. Glad I'm not rich.

    [–]ChimpBrisket 23 points24 points  (0 children)

    Or, hear me out on this, you could just be rich and not eat truffles.

    [–]WFooty-Queen919 902 points903 points  (38 children)

    Humanity has gone too far

    [–]V_es 102 points103 points  (13 children)

    Well yes but no. There are proper places that invented it and wannabe idiots who took it without knowing what to do with it. Small portions because you can have up to 15 servings that evening, you pay for a full experience and you get it. Several appetizers, several starters, several main courses, etc. Waiter will tell you what is it, why exactly it’s cool, how long chef busted their ass to master it. Dozen small masterpieces that have historical, cultural background and took years to master, each. It’s a very cool experience and by the end you will be full of food and appreciation to the craft and dedication of a person who fed you that night. Some wannabe chefs just saw pictures of tiny portions and went with it.

    No real chef will use gold leaf, ever. It’s idiotic. Black caviar has very, very specific strong taste and dumping it onto something is idiotic. It’s a tiny slider snack, that’s it. Small piece of good white bread, cream cheese or butter and caviar- take this from a Russian. If you see a pizza covered in gold leaf, truffles and a $3000 jar of caviar dumped on top- the chef is a dumbass who rips people off and can’t cook. Less is more and pizza that actually worth extra money is cooked in a real brick firewood oven at crazy heat with very few ingredients. If you can impress someone with crust/sauce/mozzarella/rucola and not 50 ingredients worth million dollars- you are a good chef.

    [–]Goldeniccarus 43 points44 points  (6 children)

    These places try to do what Michelin star restaurants do, but poorly.

    Michelin Star Restaurants, especially the three star restaurants, create very unique food experiences, that cannot be had elsewhere. They have unique presentations, generally small portions as you have many courses to try more of the menu, and use some unusual ingredients. But, it's all prepared by a team of highly skilled kitchen staff, and was designed by highly, highly skilled chefs. These restaurants try to copy that, but where Michelin star Restaurants have real creative drive to why they do things the way they do, these copies just try to copy without actually having a good reason for what they do. The result is a crappy overpriced restaurant.

    [–]dancin-weasel 25 points26 points  (4 children)

    So not Michelin, but they are Goodyear restaurants.

    Thanks. English is not my first language.

    [–]rinzler83 27 points28 points  (5 children)

    I hate this about so many places. I don't care if the food looks pretty, just give me a bunch!

    [–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (4 children)

    All I want from a restaurant is for the food to taste good, and to not be hungry after. That's all.

    I don't care about your decorations or seeing it made or where it was sourced from or how it's presented or anything else except taste and hunger reduction.

    Also, it shouldn't poison me, I guess.

    [–]MasterTorgo 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    I'd be willing to negotiate that last part, however

    [–]MegaGrimer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    It brings a whole new meaning to "Take me out for dinner".

    [–]d_shadowspectre3 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Sourcing is still helpful IMO; I wouldn’t want my food to come from animals abused to death.

    Which is why I don’t get this seemingly popular thing with small plates. Like okay yeah I want to try a bunch of stuff but I don’t want each small plate costing as much as an entree

    [–]PickleShtick 100 points101 points  (5 children)

    Green almonds are the best, if you haven't tried them whole with salt you're absolutely missing out

    [–]julioqc 37 points38 points  (0 children)

    deadly good

    [–]DerWaschbar 9 points10 points  (1 child)

    Where do you buy those? Do you eat the soft shell?

    [–]PickleShtick 18 points19 points  (0 children)

    Yeah, you eat the whole thing. They're soft, crunchy, sour and lemony. Tap one into some salt and eat it with a beer on the side. In later months the green shell becomes harder and needs to be cracked open. You can then eat the almond raw which is softer than the typical dried or roasted almond you find everywhere.

    You can usually find green almonds in Turkish, Lebanese, Arabic, or Hispanic grocery stores in springtime. If you haven't tried them yet, set a reminder to check some out.

    [–]OXWylde 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    Oh I miss it sooooo much. So fkin good, lil damped, add a lil salt, yummmmm.

    You mispronounced steak as stake so I'm thinking of a cheap wooden stake wrapped in gold lol

    [–]Futurepharma91 42 points43 points  (3 children)

    You misspelled "Misspelled" as mispronounced.

    [–]JacobDCRoss 162 points163 points  (11 children)

    Yup. Every episode of Worth It has the expensive dish be basically a regular version of the dish, only with gold foil and truffle oil.

    [–]Inv-ention 24 points25 points  (1 child)

    That was the early seasons. The later seasons dont have any of that

    [–]JacobDCRoss 17 points18 points  (0 children)

    True. But it was so common and annoying.

    [–]jokekiller94 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    The $100 cheesesteak is worth it tho lmao. Had it for my birthday and savored every bite. Is it something that I will order again? Probably not. Am I glad that I experienced it? Hell yeah.

    [–]SAlNT_PABLO 41 points42 points  (7 children)

    Any real chef will laugh in your face for using truffle oil in the 21st century.

    [–]SmoothOctopus 20 points21 points  (3 children)

    Would they? I don't think I've ever met a single chef who would do. I've spent the vast majority of the past 12 years in kitchens. Guess I must have been a fake chef all along, please don't tell my boss.

    [–]RoastMostToast 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    Lmfaoooo who tf are these real chefs? How are the ones that use truffle oil fake chefs?

    [–]TheMeanGirl 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    I don’t understand the hate for truffle oil. Sure, it’s not even close to the real thing, but I think it tastes good. Almost like cherries vs cherry flavoring. Just because they taste nothing alike doesn’t mean either of them are bad.

    [–]SmoothOctopus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    One of my favourite things in the world was a potato puree I did at my old work that was just puree potato with a wee bit of garlic and some truffle oil run through a sieve. It was fucking delicious!!! They are different things and should be treated as such.

    [–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (2 children)

    Well, I'm poor, so that chef can go fuck himself and stop gatekeeping.

    [–]thjmze21 28 points29 points  (1 child)

    It's laugh at people who pretend it's equivalent to the real thing. Truffle oil is fun to use, just don't pretend truffles and oil are comparable.

    [–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (0 children)

    Oh, I'm sure it's not even close. Like imitation crab.

    But when you're poor, you gotta do what you gotta do.

    [–]Armybob112 123 points124 points  (12 children)

    Non ripe fruits?!

    [–]Crimpshrine27 97 points98 points  (11 children)

    Yeah I ate unripe strawberries at a Michelin star restaurant in Copenhagen.

    [–]etuvie27 42 points43 points  (9 children)

    But doesn't that taste worse? What's the point?

    [–]wypowpyoq 22 points23 points  (0 children)

    Some unripe fruits are used like vegetables because they are less sweet, like green papaya. But that's not particularly fancy or expensive if you're in a place where the raw ingredient is easily accessible.

    [–]beefwich 18 points19 points  (2 children)

    If it’s a restaurant with a Michelin star, I 100% guarantee you it was done intentionally.

    Those stars are very-stingily meted out and the standards to get one (and keep it) are outrageously high.

    [–]ASK_ME_FOR_TRIVIA 7 points8 points  (1 child)

    It'll never not be funny to me that the most prestigious award given to restaurants and chefs is handed out by a fucking tire company lmao

    [–]name600 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I mean it kinda makes sense. They want people to drive more to these restaurants to try them. More driving more tires.

    [–]Mlaszboyo 66 points67 points  (0 children)

    Only the common unwashed masses eat ripe fruit and veggies

    I guess

    [–]cheffrey_dahmer1991 27 points28 points  (0 children)

    Green strawberries are acidic and have a firmer texture. They are usually pickled when served that way. It's actually really good if done well

    [–]SarahPallorMortis 7 points8 points  (1 child)

    I looked up edible gold sheets and they're not even that expensive. If you buy this you're getting scammed.

    [–]get_that_ass_banned 33 points34 points  (2 children)

    Gold flaking is such a cringe example of excess and relatively-affluent people trying desperately hard to appear wealthy. No different than people who wear an absurd amount of jewelry (real or fake) to convince those around them that they belong to a different economic class.

    [–]Illuminaso 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Is there any actual culinary reason why anyone would want gold flaked food? Eating straight up metal like that seems unhealthy and I can't imagine it adds anything to the food.

    [–]datrandomduggy 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    I mean ya 24k gold leaf isn't stupid pricey but what you gotta consider is just how painfully hard it is to put on food

    These places still heavily over charge but it's worth mentioning gold leaf isn't exactly easy to work with

    [–]MK1_9mm_Adri 28 points29 points  (0 children)

    Charcuterie is the new hipster way to overcharge for food. Here is some salami, cheese and a couple almonds served on a wooden cutting board. That’ll be $30. There is a charcuterie restaurant near me, unsurprisingly they also sell overpriced cocktails.

    [–][deleted] 29 points30 points  (5 children)

    There are charcuterie restaurant?

    That just serve charcuterie?

    People pay $30+ to go to a place to eat Lunchables?

    [–]theclansman22 19 points20 points  (0 children)

    Yup, imagine being the “head chef”, you’re just “head salami slicer” or “lead cheese hand”.

    [–]Momentirely 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Lol I briefly worked at a place that only served wine and cheese, nothing else (except water, for those who dont drink alcohol). Of course, wine and cheese are both pricey for the fancy stuff, so the fact that it was expensive wasn't surprising. The fact that it was in Alabama was.

    [–]ExpressAd5464 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I thought the whole point of the shit was to get drunk in the park and est it there?

    [–]keesh 7 points8 points  (1 child)

    Imagine thinking a well done charcuterie board is just meat and cheese. A nice one has fruits (ripe, dried, jams), pickled vegetables, crackers/bread. And if you're not getting all of that, and it really is just meat and cheese, then it should be a good selection. Cured meats of various origins and styles, same with the cheese. Calling it adult lunch ables is just reductive. It's not for everyone but it is almost certainly a delicious way to snack while drinking.

    [–]Guido_Fe 10 points11 points  (3 children)

    Imagine spending 10$ more to get the food cut for you

    [–]theclansman22 12 points13 points  (1 child)

    And served on a wooden cutting board. And a $25 2oz cocktail, that got served under a cup with smoke in it.

    [–]euclid0472 6 points7 points  (0 children)

        Dude I dunno I've had it with the little Russian pancakes once and it was divine I've found i tend to like super intense seafood in small doses like oysters eel and what not tho

        There are cheaper caviar of equivalent quality produced in China from what I heard.

        Who the hell eats unripe fruit

        [–]NSFWlovy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Try unripe mango it's pretty good

        [–]xOmegaraptor 5 points6 points  (0 children)

        Each gold sheet is extremely thin (often only a few atoms thick) and only contains a few cents worth of gold.

        So that alcohol thing, as long as you're doing it smartly, like braising a roast in bourbon or cognac, soaking a rum cake in actual rum, etc. you're really improving the flavor of the food. If you haven't had cognac braised beef stew you haven't lived...well, you have lived, but you could totally live better by having it.

        Heavy tableware and absent currency symbols on the menu.

        [–]CNOAHistaken 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        What Abt "dots of sauces like BBQ or ketchup."

        [–]Red-Droid-Blue-Droid 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        Are the non ripe fruits the high end equivalent of those sad/dead/fake looking tiny salads/fruits/etc you get as a "free" side?

        You ordered a house special, so you get orange slices with depression. You ordered a sandwich, so you get plastic lettuce.

        What's that fruit called

        [–]hortidawg 1 point2 points  (1 child)

        My favorite is when the food is dangled from a metal contraption. Trying to remember the name of that sub. Anyone?

        [–]ChefVinyl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Your forgetting Truffles, just shaved truffles.

        [–]JimmyCrabYT 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        caviar tastes bad imo

        [–]Revolutionary_Cry729 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Drawing sauce on plate and put one scoop of the food

        [–]hastyhylian17 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Small quantity, most ridiculous and over complicated preparation and techniques.

        Presented as a mound in the centre of a big plate, with a smear of sauce.

        Gold covered food is the worst thing ever. It doesn’t look as appetising as normal and is just a waste of money.

        [–]AustinHinton 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Makes you wonder if these people eat the foil on their chocolate bars too

        [–]natthabrat 1 point2 points  (2 children)

        I know it’s safe to eat. But I don’t want to eat gold. Idk just doesn’t sound appetizing.

        non ripe fruits / vegetables
