Big, bold flavours in an informal modern bistro

The sibling of the Sticky Walnut in Chester, Burnt Truffle follows a similar contemporary bistro vibe with its roster of intelligently updated classics, and good-looking decor featuring natural textures of wood, stone and slate. Expect inventive, well-executed dishes of bold flavours. Beef tartare comes with pickled mooli radish, puffed rice, crispy shallots and smoked radish, followed by a pleasingly visceral cut from the budget section of the cow - Jacob's ladder - braised and glazed short rib of beef with watercress, truffle and parmesan chips and onion purée. For dessert, there's lemon curd with meringue, blackberry jelly, coconut biscuit and marshmallow.
