For the Hardcore: Un jour à Peyrassol
Peyrassol is a wine producing region in the South of France; evidently, this restaurant is so good at providing quality dishes and wines from Provence. In a medieval room with stone scraped walls, you can try a menu featuring all you can imagine with truffles, from starter to desserts! Truffled egg scramble, truffled gnocchi, truffled crème brûlée or even truffled ice cream... There's also a fine grocery in the restaurant, if your very truffled meal is still not enough to satisfy your truffle crush!

This restaurant has been so well-known for their friendly service. On top of that, in this cosy yet classy restaurant, you're guaranteed to a cluster of options for the best of French gastronomy: wine, snails, and foie gras. It seems like they've got a secret recipe on their very yummy truffle cream sauce, because apparently their Truffle Foie Gras Ravioli has captured the heart of many, even those across the globe!

For the hipsters: Ober Mamma
Ober Mamma has been one of the most popular outlets of the Big Mamma Group (constant long queues in front of the restaurant). Its interior design is so very bold and glamorous that it defines the new trend of chic restaurants in the French capital. Besides its brand image and vibe, the Truffle pasta is definitely mind-blowing: al dente pasta with large slices of freshly cut black truffles...it's pure foodgasm!

For pizza-lovers: Daroco
This hidden gem in the Opéra area is a super cool italian restaurant. The place is extremely well designed, with excellent food and upbeat atmosphere. They excel in doing homemade pizzas, and for sure, the Black Truffle pizza is crème de la crème! There's even a secret cocktail bar (with mocktails too) at the back of the restaurant if you fancy a nice cosy drink after.
6 Rue Vivienne, 75002
12pm - 12am daily
For the sweet tooth: Pierre Hermé
Who doesn't know Pierre Hermé when we talk about macarons and desserts? But, do you know their White Truffle Hazelnut macaron? It's hard to imagine the strong flavour of truffle would go well with the subtle nuttiness of hazelnut, somehow Pierre Hermé managed to pair them up so well that the macaron has a very well-balanced richness. The smooth paste of white truffle wraps up a hazelnut, creating the soft and crunchy texture in the mouth. This is absolutely heavenly!
18 Rue Sainte-Croix de la Bretonnerie
11am - 8pm daily
