My dates last night – Elang and Celina, both women I met here in my current work. E is currently pregnant and C has left the bank, the last time we saw each other was on the last week of December. Since we all do not have dates for Valentine’s, we decided to just have dinner in a place that we all haven’t tried yet.
We went to Trufa Pasta Bar in Legazpi Village , Makati City. It’s hidden in one of the buildings along Esteban Street, just across Solaris Building. You wouldn’t notice it if you’re not paying attention.
The place is “Instagram Worth”, but it was packed last night (hello, VDay) so there are only a few people taking photos of the interiors. But there were a lot taking photos of themselves lol.
Trufa has its Make Your Own Pasta menu that lets you personalize your food in three easy steps.
We ate the following:
Salsa : POMODORO, classic tomato sauce
PASTA : Spaghetti
Alegria : PANCETA, lightly fried pork belly
QUESOS, Trufa’s cheese selection
The pomodoro sauce was really good. The flavor was rich and the bacon was to die for.
Salsa : CARBONARA FILIPINA, Crispy dilis, smoked fish, cream and parmesan
Pasta : SPAGHETTI
Alegria : TRUFA, their secret truffle sauce
ESPINACAS, sautéed spinach
It was good, not that great. And the crispy dilis and smoked fish are so sharp, I think they wounded my mouth. Ugh.
Salsa : TRUFA, their signature dish
Pasta : Fettuccine
I wasn’t able to try this coz this was for the preggo friend lol. But the smell of truffle was so strong, I could only guess how it tastes (truffle-y, lol).
Overall, Trufa is a nice place to try (once or twice). However, their pasta is a bit expensive for the taste (I’ve tasted better ones) and the serving size was small. I don’t know if it’s because of VDay, but the food seemed to be cooked in a rush.
A glass of Sangria Blanca
And free dessert for the ladies (coz it’s Vday)
Overall, Trufa is a nice place to try (once or twice). However, their pasta is a bit expensive for the taste (I’ve tasted better ones) and the serving size was small. I don’t know if it’s because of Feb14, but the food seemed to be cooked in a rush. However, the staff was cordial and very accommodating.
With that, I’d give them a 3.5/5
