What a fun place! First impression is that it resembles Revel decor wise, but that’s a compliment in every way. I even noticed some artwork from Electric Coffin (good work guys!). I went with four girlfriends (two of which had been before) and we ordered like crazy. It’s hard to say no when they come to your table with a tray full of delicious looking plates that all seem to be calling your name. There’s a menu with a la carte dishes in addition to the cart items if you please and boy did we! Everything was cooked to perfection, tasted so fresh, and all had a unique burst of flavor. I’m excited to go back and try different things. I’d say this is definitely one to put on your list of places to try.
Rachel Yang and Seif Chirchi have proven themselves ingenious chefs once again! Trove, located on the corner of Pike and Summit, is four concepts in one. You’ve got Noodle, Parfait, Bar and BBQ. All are very unique and different yet they compliment each other perfectly. I’ve been to all four but because they’re each their own, they also deserve their own blog post so stay tuned.
We couldn’t help ourselves and had to order three different noodles. First the yellow curry rigatoni with cauliflower chickpea and yogurt. Out standing! So much flavor, awesome texture…standout dish for me! I believe the nuts on top were toasted hazelnuts and there were also raisins or currants in there as well. Perfection.
Next the spaghetti stir fried with meatballs and swiss chard. Sounds plain but there was so much more to the dish and it was tasty!
Last but not least (and somehow I forgot to take a picture) was the rice noodle, chipotle pad thai with pork belly and yu choy. Awesome!
I really don’t think you can go wrong. The menu rotates so get in there often and try something new each time. IF you aren’t stuffed when you leave, stop by Parfait on the way out.
