We often throw about the food fad term 'truffle fries' pretty loosely, but here's a fun fact: did you know that there are only six main varieties of truffle that we consider good enough to eat? And if you've ever seen a photo of a truffle, you'd probably know that they taste better than they look!
These days, some food fads seem to never go out of style. Truffle fries, in particular, are a prime example of such a fad, and with good reason too! The fragrant truffle oil is the perfect complement to fries, an age-old comfort food. Combine the two, and you get a finger-licking guilty pleasure. So get ready to satisfy your cravings with STYLEGUIDE's top 10 picks of truffle fries in Singapore!
