It’s Summer Truffle Season at Le Quartier

Senopati’s beloved European dining, Le Quartier, is bringing Italian Summer Truffles to Jakarta’s dining scene.


Summer Truffle, also commonly known as Scorzone in Italy, is a truffle mushroom variety that mainly grows in Southern Europe (France, Italy, Spain) and Eastern Europe (Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary) between April and August—hence the name. The premium mushroom contains a subtle aroma and has a mild, delicate flavor reminiscent of porcini mushrooms mixed with garlic, chocolate, and hazelnut nuances. For a limited time only, Le Quartier offers its patrons a taste of Summer Truffles specially flown from Umbria, Italy, on its menu. The Summer Truffle is offered at the restaurant per 5 grams, and guests can add it to any dish available on Le Quartier’s extensive menu. After the order, the mushroom will be shaved directly in front of the guests to the guests’ liking. 

“We are excited to introduce Summer Truffle to our beloved patrons. It is an exclusive and premium seasonal cooking ingredient in some parts of Europe. Its aroma resembles a wild mushroom, while the flavor has subtle hazelnut and forest mushroom notes. We believe it will offer a new dining experience for our patrons,” said Chris Janssens, chef-owner of Le Quartier. To achieve the best dining experience, Le Quartier also suggests the dishes be paired with Champagne, Chardonnay, Bordeaux, or Barolo wines.
