Rustico Pays Homage to Gastronomic Delights of Autumn with White Truffles Delicacies

November 7, 2018 Dining No Comments Email Email

Spanish taverna Rustico is celebrating gastronomic highlights of autumn at the raved Lai Chi Kok dining destination D2 Place from November, paying homage to traditional Spanish recipes complemented with prized white truffle from Alba.

This white truffle season, Head Chef Carlos Salvador Asensio brings the culinary glamour of white truffle delicacies on an “all white truffles you want” approach, where diners can choose precisely how much truffles they want on their plate – as the prized ingredient is priced HK$45 per gram.

The prized delicacy can be shaved on a la carte dishes like Homemade Ricotta Ravioli with Fresh Cream Sauce (HK$158), Creamy Mashed Potato, Roast Wild Mushrooms, Slow Cook Free Range Egg and Marsalla Wine Sauce (HK$88), Beef Carpaccio with Mushroom oil, Rocket leaves and Manchego Cheese (HK$138) and Fresh White Asparagus with Warm Forest Mushroom Emulsion Sauce (HK$138).

It also graces less familiar gastronomic companions, such as Open Tortilla with Confit Shallots, Green Asparagus and Roast Spanish Pancetta and its Jus (HK$98), Creamy Forest Mushroom Spanish Bomba Rice (HK$168), and Roast Wagyu Beef Cheek Canneloni with its natural Jus and White Bechamel Sauce (HK$178).

 Rustico is named after its traditional rustic Spanish taverna décor – complete with wooden beams, an open kitchen with hanging jambon, pots and pans, and red brick/tile mosaic flooring. In true ‘taverna’ style, the intimate venue even incorporates semi-outdoor al fresco seating under grapevines.

Occupying 2,000 sq ft, Rustico serves authentic Spanish tapas in a relaxed and elegant setting that is distinctly modern with covert Spanish accents. Seating 80, it features an al fresco terrace where diners can enjoy the art of people watching, like a true Spaniard; or enjoy the rustic brick arch interiors modelled after typical Catalan restaurants. An open kitchen allows diners to interact with the kitchen and observe Chef Carlos Salvador Asensio’s crafting skills.

Rustico is located on G01, D2 Place One, 9 Cheung Yee Street, Lai Chi Kok, Kowloon, Hong Kong.  For enquiries or reservations, please call (852) 2743-4511, or for more information.

Rustico opens daily from 12:00 noon to 10:30 pm, offering lunch, happy hour and dinner menu options with conviviality fuelled by Spanish sangrias, cocktails, wines and spirits.
