Mamou has built itself a long-standing reputation for consistently serving great food that delivers with integrity. It’s one of the safer dining destinations that hardly disappoints– save for the consistently inconsistent slab of steak. But apart from that, it’s all good.

Another constant staple at Mamou is their Lorenzo Truffle Cream Pasta. A well-loved dish that is almost always present in every diner’s table, this is one plate of pasta that has made eyeballs roll with ecstasy, causing every idea of some absurd diet to disappear at the sight (and scent!) of this dish.

For a cream-based pasta, it doesn’t get cloying unlike other versions such as carbonara. Flavored with a few simple ingredients and prepared with minimal fuss, a dash of salt and a generous sprinkle of Parmesan are all you need to get this dish going from the pan to the plate.

    • Pamela Cortez says:

      Nowadays, you can buy truffle oil even in supermarkets like Rustans. A good bet would be delis too like Santis, Epicurious or specialty stores such as Oliviers and Co.

    truffle oil works better if added last. just drizzle some before tossing or serving. it would preserve the aroma and taste of the truffle oil.

  7. mem says:

    Use truffle paste with the butter and cream instead of truffle oil.
