Anytime Cafe is doing its homework when it comes to pasta sauce. It is now using the Italian authentic and produced La Rustichella white truffle pate in a few of its dishes, including the new Trio Shrimp Spaghettini with white truffle sauce, priced at $15.95. This dish’s foundation is in the sauce and it cannot be missed. The creamy truffle sauce blended with La Rustichella delicately brings out a fantastic flavor with each bite, and it doesn’t leave you lumbering toward the door on your way out.

“When we start cooking this one, customers can smell it from the kitchen, it smells delicious. I like tomato sauce usually more then white, but this is so good, I really love it,” says Anytime Cafe owner Cindy Wong.

As a classic Tuscan tradition, the white truffle pate is made from fresh white truffles, extra virgin olive oil and a touch of salt. Served with spaghettini pasta, you also will find three types of scrumptious shrimp — bay shrimp, tiger shrimp and large crab meat stuffed shrimp — in Trio Shrimp Spaghettini. With La Rustichella being so expensive, the white truffle sauce is available on a first-come-first-served basis.

Other options on Anytime Cafe’s specials menu that have become popular are Cheese Ravioli and Chicken Piccata, both priced at $12.95. Anytime Cafe also serves breakfast on the weekends starting at 8 a.m.
