Truffle Treats | 松露吃到饱

gi-12.jpg



Hey Hivers, this post is about my lunch experience in Gold Istra, a local traditional restaurant B&B in Padna, Slovenia. It's located in the Istrian hinterland, home to superior-quality truffles. They offered a generous amount of truffles with yummylicious bread, Fuži pasta and steak, at an unbeatable price! I thoroughly enjoyed its warm and cozy family-like atmosphere, as well as the beautiful views like in Tuscany. You can also join a truffle hunting tour organized by them and stay overnight there.



昨晚叕吃了顿坑爹的意面(这边好些餐馆会把意面煮到不成面形,再扔进浓稠奶油里游泳,把意大利本土筋道的pasta软化乳化到面目全非……心疼无辜意面们5秒钟),让我怀念起几个月前在斯洛文尼亚吃到的一次美味意面。那家饭店叫金色伊斯特拉,位于伊斯特拉半岛上的一个小山村Padna。

为了便于说明,先来点我最爱的地理😊:伊斯特拉半岛临着亚得里亚海,跨着克罗地亚、斯洛文尼亚和意大利交界区,89%的区域在南边的克罗地亚,比如Pula, Rovinj等,都是处处美食美酒美景的温暖好地方。留学时去那边背包过一圈,美得流连忘返,吃得乐不思比 :D。这次重回半岛,翻山越岭开到北边小山头上的Padna,就为尝尝这里的松露主打,果然不虚此行,酒足面饱😋,还叫我思念到如今~

从下面我拍的那些周边照片可以看到,这块地区跟意大利托斯卡纳乡间风景类似,土产也是松露、橄榄油、葡萄酒等,其中以松露最闻名。松露在西欧的餐厅里价格不菲,别说贵出天价的野生白松露,就连人工种植的黑松露也要上百欧一斤。

这种看起来像煤球,闻起来像硫磺,吃起来像树皮的块菌(不好意思我又在瞎说大实话了,哈哈)这些年被炒成西餐界的顶级食材,除了营养价值高,主要因为生长环境特殊,物以稀为贵。由于长在地下不易被发现,便有了松露猎人,早先是借助母猪去嗅松露气味中的雄烯酮从而找到它们的藏身之地,因为这种类固醇也存在于吸引母猪的公猪口水中。但母猪情不自禁拱到松露后,也常常会情不自禁地吃掉它,而且用鼻子拱开地面时会破坏松露的菌丝体,导致之后产量下降,所以后来松露猎人逐渐训练猎犬来替代母猪。这家B&B也组织这种跟狗探寻松露之旅,就在附近的山林里,晚上还提供住宿。

而这里松露餐的价格也远低于西欧的高级餐厅,比如虾仁菌菇松露Fuži意面只要十欧出头,含有无需搜寻、肉眼可见的大颗虾仁和松露刨花,牛排和餐前面包酱上都有松露,一堆吃喝加起来不过五十欧,真是业界良心,关键味道还超赞。还有这氛围,也是托斯卡纳乡间那种家庭餐馆的感觉,没有高大上的排场和没完没了的品酒讲解,不用佯装淑女、拘谨憋屈,只管尽情享受La Mamma用心煮给一大家子人吃的简单美食,用料新鲜、分量充足,满满的亲切和温馨。

就连我通常抗拒的沙拉都那么可口,刀工细致,酱汁拌得入味,而且略腌过,不像有些地方只敷衍地丢给你一碗生叶子和一两瓶酱料,食之无味,只好弃之XD。这里还要鸣谢一下沙拉,无数次成为我反击西方食客朋友的工具,还有beef tartare(生牛肉顶个生蛋黄)。对话大致如下:
“你们中国人竟然吃鸡爪、皮蛋这种恶心的东西!”
“你们西方人不也总吃生叶子、生牛肉这些野蛮的玩意儿!!”
然后相顾无言,握手言和,继续enjoy各自眼中的黑暗料理……

Spectacular! I always forget the beauty of Slovenia! The open-air dining. :) As Americans, we pay extra for that, there it is a given. The dinner/lunch looks delicious and the plating exceptional. The views are to die for. Truly What a wonderful idea, going on a hunt for mushrooms. I'm in!

Thank you for the tour! It was such a pleasure!

My pleasure too, wonderful experience indeed. :) I remember I was surprised to see the final prices of restaurant meals when first arrived at the US, as they were always more than expected adding the tips.
