According to a number of Food Network’s Chopped judges, truffles, be it as a salt or oil, are overused and often misused. So imagine my thought when we perused the menu at The Henry at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and came across truffle tater tots. Really? They’re removing the tater tots from Napoleon Dynamite’s pocket and sprinkling them with truffle salt and drizzling them with truffle oil to make everyone’s favorite cafeteria item suitable for an upscale setting? Really?!? **cues Jimmy Fallon and Tina Fey for a SNL Really segment** After out waiter assured me that they were nothing short of delectable, my mom and I succumbed and each requested an order.
MY OH MY!!!!! Crispy, light, delectable, excellent, tasty! In the words of Pops from the movie Boomerang, “Simply delicious!”
Oh, the hamburger was pretty amazing too.
