What is “street” is trendy, what is Milanese must be also fast and what has truffle in it, is gourmet. And all this together is Flawless, in just ten grams. Where do we want to get? In via della Moscova, in our Milan and, precisely, at Ten Grams, which, calling itself “the first fast food dedicated to truffles“, proudly states, “We will be on everyone’s lips”.
Well, luckily, in got on our lips. And it also left a great taste. Here, the king of the woods arrives on the table tired of the pompous aristocratic ceremonies that often precede him, and approaches us as one of our peers. Between a slice of mortadella and a tasty porcino, between a sip of wine and a forkful of tartare, the food of the gods tells us how, in the end, there is nothing more “down to earth” than him. We can not help laughing. We drink another sip and we also order the dessert.
At Ten Grams the atmosphere is easy, the greetings youthful and informal, the timings fast but the result excellent. The diamond of the forests, be it black or white, is treated with all the respect it deserves, and its potential is left free to express itself in every dish, from the aperitif to the dessert. Our favorite dish? The timbale le Truffe Noire, velvety and enveloping, is a real delight. And if you are gluttons, the truffle milk-flavored gelato melts in your mouth and is the most worthy conclusion of a truffle-themed dinner.
Ten grams is the right amount of truffle to be served with tajarin to enhance its goodness. It takes very little, as long as it is of substance. And it seems that this is the philosophy on which Ten Grams is founded, whose idea of food is fast, simple and without frills, but it is pure excellence when it comes to the quality of raw materials and the perfection of the final result.
From the depth of his wisdom, with base in the earth, the king of the woods reminds us once again that true beauty is not easy neither to imitate nor to hide: when it is there, it manifests itself without being celebrated; on the contrary, she loves simplicity, because it allows her to show us how little, in the end, we need to be able to grasp and recognize it. Beauty is around us, it is enclosed in the naturalness of things. It is kept in the gems that come from our land and can not wait to share the joys of their journey by releasing scents, colors, textures and flavors that have remained unexpressed and secret.
Then remember: ten grams are enough.
