The Just Ask restaurant of the month for August goes to Truffles Restaurant & Wine Bar, Kilkenny, Co. Kilkenny
Truffles may be one of Kilkenny’s newer restaurants, but it’s also one of the most popular. Owner-manager Milko Mihaylov, and Chef Lukasz Glab are delivering unpretentious fine dining in a bright and elegant restaurant and wine bar, establishing a favourite destination for locals and a joy for visitors to discover. Rooted in the Freshness of the Season is the motto heading a list of local suppliers and partners that speaks volumes for this down to earth philosophy and all menus are designed to satisfy diners that may have allergies – over 95% of dishes are also available as gluten, nuts, dairy and shellfish free alternatives.
“All of our fresh Irish poultry, pork, game, lamb and beef are supplied by second generation craft butcher Pat Mullins of Mullins Butchers, Kilkenny City, while duckling is supplied by Silver Hill Foods in Co. Monaghan. Kish Fish in Dublin supply all fresh seafood including scallops, prawns and Irish crab meat. Reflecting the exceptional care taken with vegetarian and vegan dishes, organic leaves and root vegetables are supplied by Vincent Grace of Riverfield Farm in Callan and Edmundburry Greens Farm in Durrow, Co. Laois supply certified chemical free mixed leaves, microgreens and fresh herbs. A selection of artisan cheeses are supplied by The Traditional Cheese Co. in Dublin while flours and grains from the Mosse family’s seventh generation mill, Kells Wholemeal at Bennetsbridge, couldn’t be much more local”.
