Truffle Cheesesteak from The Truffleist

The Truffleist Cheesesteak at Smorgasburg

In Food by ashbydodd

The Black Truffle Cheesesteak by The Truffleist is not the cheesesteak you grew up with and I wouldn’t necessarily waste this one on the kids! This tasty sandwich is loaded down with your favorite, classic ingredients: steak, onions, cheese, peppers; and then kicks it into high gear with a little bechamel cheese sauce and A LOT of truffle oil!

Truffleist Menu and Cheesesteak

If black truffles aren’t your thing, consider some of the other favorites:

  • Goat Cheese And Truffle Honey Cheesesteak:  Seared Steak, Goat Cheese, Carmelized Onions, Sauteed Peppers, Classic Bechamel Cheese Sauce and a drizzle of Truffle Honey. Served on a toasted Rustic Hero
  • Truffle Mustard and Provolane Cheesesteak:  Seared Steak, Melted Provolane, Carmelized Onions, Sauteed Peppers, Classic Bechamel Cheese Sauce and a drizzle of Truffle Mustard. Served on a Rustic Hero
  • Truffle Mac and Cheese:  Brooklyn handmade pasta, Cheesesauce, Melted cheese, Truffle oil

If you’re planning on snatching one up, start planning your weekend excursion to Smorgasburg at Brooklyn Flea this summer or possibly Madison Square’s Mad. Sq. Eats again this fall.  Part of the allure behind the cheesesteak menu is that they can only be found at very particular food events.  While you can purchase products like The Truffleist truffle oil all year long, the cheesesteaks can only be found in certain locations at certain times of the year.

Truffleist King Kong Sign

The Truffleist, Jimmy Kunz, introduces the aromatic flavor of truffle to a classic east coast meal; Cheesesteaks. By taking the classic recipe for a cheesesteak (steak, peppers, caramelized onions, swiss cheese) and combining them with his own handcrafted truffle oil and a truffle infused bechamel cheese sauce, he’s put a lavish twist on a common and adored east coast specialty.
