You know the saying “everything’s bigger in Texas”. Well.. Truluck’s in Austin definitely supports this phrase. This city is filled with young professionals who love to eat. After I ate at Truluck’s, I may need to pack up and move there! Hold my bags y’all.. because I am about to praise the food in the post. It was truly a 5 star dining experience. Let’s get into it:
- I started off with the Chilled Shellfish Platter. This massive dish had me shook when this was placed on my table! This included 2 jumbo shrimp, 2 oysters, 2 Florida Stone Crab claws, and blue crab cocktail. If you like seafood, you NEED to try this. The crab cocktail was so fresh, I could’ve hugged the chef to thank him.
- For my entrée, it was a tough choice, but I had the Salmon Béarnaise. Whoever thought to put this dish on the menu needs a raise immediately. It was a salmon filet laid beautifully on a bed of mashed potatoes. The salmon was covered with a lump of delicious crabmeat and two plump shrimp. This was 10 out of 10, would absolutely recommend!
- Top off it all off, I finished with their Chocolate Malt Cake. I do not have a picture because I ate it too quickly and forgot, but you can google “Truluck’s chocolate malt cake” and see why. This cake was wild! 4 layers of chocolate cake filled with rich chocolate icing spread between. Besides the fluffiness and great flavors, the fruit on top of the cake was so refreshing. They gave such a large slice, it could easily feed a family of 3. I wasn’t readyyy for how bomb this meal was, it really blew my mind!
