Truffles: Piggish antics in Aoyama

Thrust your porcine snout into the turf and root your way over to Minami Aoyama, to greet the second coming of the truffle train. Having moved from Roppongi, the Nice-based Terres de Truffes opens doors December 7 (book from November 21) in a cozier location with an expanded menu. New à la carte items (from ¥2,800) include the signature truffle-steamed rice, and a host of other titillating treats riffing on the sought-after fungus. Lunch set menus range from ¥2,800-7,800, while a set dinner goes for ¥15,000. Punters can also buy fresh truffles and bottles of truffle oil for piggish antics back home.
