There is something about the nature of truffles that have captivated people for over a thousand years. Perhaps it is the dazzling, irresistible aroma that continues to draw generation after generation to this delicacy. The history of these black pearls of the Earth is often filled with mystery, superstition and, at one time, damnation.
This subterranean mushroom is found within the living roots of chestnut, oak, hazel, and beech trees. The word truffle comes from the Latin word “tuber”, which means outgrowth. It dates back to as early as the ancient Egyptians, who held truffles in high esteem and ate them coated in goose fat. A myth surrounded this gourmet entrée when people believed they came from the ground after lightning struck the earth. According to a legend, a farmer spotted his pig digging at the root of a tree, eating the mushrooms that it found. Upon seeing that the pig remained healthy, the farmer tried the mushrooms himself. Afterwards, his inability to have a child with his wife resulted in them having thirteen children. Many soon felt that there was a supernatural quality to truffles, and saw them as God’s gift to humanity. The Greeks and Romans used them for therapeutic purposes, feeling that they gave eternal health to the body and soul. Truffles were also seen has having exotic qualities in its aroma and flavor, making it more popular among the noble classes.(gourmetfoodstore.com)
Truffle Burger, Korean Fried Chicken Wings
Have you ever tasted something so good that you wanted to cry?
I assure you that, the ambiance, the view of the beautiful Pacific Ocean, and the exotic delicious flavors of the food at this new found paradise was all the way superb.
Just writing this letter makes my heart beat fast.
Time to dive into one of my favorite places on Earth; Rumfire on the glorious beach of Hawaiian waters!
Let’s talk about it…
So it’s my 1 year wedding anniversary and my wife and I are spending this time in Waikiki.
Our home for the week will be at the Sheraton hotel. Within this hotel is a marvelous entrance to the beach, with a gorgeous view of the ocean and Hawaiian Islands.
After we arrived and placed our luggage in the room, we were famished and eager to sink our teeth into some Hawaiian style cuisine.
We walked towards the beach front connected to the hotel and ‘what do you know’, a lounge restaurant called Rumfire.
We take a seat and admire the great view and order the Truffle Burger and Korean fried chicken wings.
Not to mention, 2 IPA’s and 2 shots of Jameson. Time to kick this celebration off right!
The Truffle Burger is described as a burger with truffle aioli, boschetto cheese, and ja farm greens.
The Korean fried chicken wings were described as kochujang vinaigrette, namul…spicy.
The dishes arrive and my eyes propped up wide immediately after seeing the colorful and artistic look to the food.
The Truffle Burger had a beautiful bun, with glistening sweat dripping off the burger, with a artistic like presence.
The Korean fried chicken wings had a bright reddish color to them that had flavor written all over them.
Time to dive in!
I grab one of the wings first…
Wow! Sweetness and spiciness hit my tongue with a tang for the aftermath. It tasted so good I dove into two more right after.

It punches me with a Mike Tyson blow again.
Another bite of the burger..
Boom! Pow! Bang!
