This is what Tiffany Trump typically eats in a day

Being the daughter of a United States president tends to pique the public's interest in your life. From where she goes to school (Georgetown Law) to who she hangs out with (she's a mama's girl), everyone suddenly wants intel on Tiffany Trump — and that includes what the beautiful blonde law student likes to eat. 

And, well, you could say she's a foodie. Fortunately for her, she spends a lot of time in cities renowned for their world-class restaurants: Washington D.C., New York City, and Los Angeles. However, if you peruse Trump's foodie photos on Instagram, it quickly becomes clear that she doesn't only like fine dining. Give the girl the occasional slice of pizza or ice cream bar, and she's just as happy. 

So, if you've ever been curious about what this lesser-publicized offspring of the POTUS consumes on any given day, keep reading. In full disclosure, though, she appears to have excellent taste. You may just come away with a few new cravings. 

Mexican food with Mama

Tiffany Trump and her mother Marla Maples share a tight-knit bond, so it's not strange to spot the pair out and about in any given city having a mother-daughter meal. In June 2018, that meant slowing down in New York City for Mexican food.

"Tiffany Trump and Marla Maples showed up this weekend for lunch at the Midtown location of Taco Dumbo," an insider at the restaurant reportedly told the New York Daily News. Per the source, the women — who were escorted by Secret Service agents — ordered and enjoyed "The Impossible Taco."

Sounds intriguing, right? Per the restaurant's online ordering app, the vegan dish consists of Ancho Americano prepared plant-based beef, black bean mash, vegan lime crema and an organic blue hard shell. As if that doesn't sound delicious enough, Trump allegedly topped off her meal with a "By the Way" cake dessert. Tacos and cake? Sounds like a winning combo. Good call, Tiff. 

Pizza, because college

Pizza… it does a brain good? There could be something to this, if you consider the sheer volume of the classic Italian food consumed by undergrad students. Take, for example, Trump. In April 2015, while attending the University of Pennsylvania, she posted a telling selfie with a massive slice on Instagram. "Pizza — the only thing that gets me through 8 hour study sessions."

In May of 2017, news broke that Trump would be following in a learned family tradition by attending law school at Georgetown University — the same grad school attended by President Trump's second son, Eric, and elder daughter, Ivanka (who ultimately transferred to Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania).

In an email to the New York Times, Eric wrote, "Georgetown is an incredible school with great significance to me personally. I am so proud of Tiffany and all that she has accomplished. She is an amazing young woman, a terrific sister and has a remarkable future ahead of her." And that bright future will undoubtedly include pizza. 

Indian food for girls' night out

One of the major perks of going to college in a big city is the endless bounty of delicious cuisine just around every corner. And it didn't take long for Trump to find her way around some of Washington, D.C.'s culinary hotspots once she entered Georgetown Law in the fall of 2017. In November of that year, the first-year student was spotted arriving at the high-end Indian restaurant Rasika at 8 p.m. for late dinner with a girlfriend, according to the Washington Post. Per the outlet, the two lingered for around an hour and a half before ducking out before being recognized. 

It would seem Trump made a solid choice in the eatery, too. Based on nearly 3,000 reviews on the crowd-rating app Yelp, Rasika maintains an impressive 4 ½ stars. The Penn Quarter restaurant has received rave praises about everything from the Palak Chaat appetizer to the cardamom ice cream. 

When that sweet tooth just can't be ignored

Tiffany Trump certainly isn't opposed to the occasional indulgence. In fact, a quick scan of her Instagram feed reveals a veritable parade of sweet treats: strawberry ice cream bars, dessert samplers, soft serve parfaits, and Crème Brule, to name a few. 

But, if a sweet tooth could be hereditary, it would be safe to say Trump's was passed down to her by her father — the POTUS is notoriously fond of dessert. In April 2017, he revealed that he bonded with Chinese President Xi Jinping over a confectionary delight while dining at Mar-a-Lago. In fact, it was at that moment, over the "most beautiful piece of chocolate cake you've ever seen" that he told the Chinese leader of the American missile strike in Syria (via NBC News). 

The following month, reporters from Time revealed that the Commander-in-Chief was served twice as much dessert (vanilla ice cream with chocolate cream pie) as his press guests (via Huffington Post). 

Fish, eggs, and fish eggs

Take a look at Trump's Instagram feed, and you'll find no shortage of foodie photos of fish, eggs and fish eggs. Yes, she loves caviar. She also loves salmon roe, judging by her pics. So, what does that reveal about the law student? 

Perhaps it hints that despite the fact she sometimes splurges on less wholesome food, Trump really does have a solid grasp of what's good for her. Per nutritionist Jo Lewin, the humble egg packs a wholesome wallop. "Both the white and yolk of an egg are rich in nutrients — proteins vitamins and minerals with the yolk also containing cholesterol, fat-soluble vitamins, and essential fatty acids," Lewin told BBC's GoodFood, noting that the health benefits of eggs include heart health and preventing osteoporosis. 

As for salmon, the fish that Trump seems to favor, it's rich in Omega 3 fatty acids. "Science has long known that foods rich in omega-3 has the ability to help with the efficience of many brain functions and helps with improved memory," says practicing gastroenterologist Dr. Partha Nandi, MD FACP on his website

Oysters, anyone?

If oysters are an acquired taste, it's a taste that Trump has definitely acquired. In July 2014, she posted a platter of oysters on the half shell from The Dominick Hotel's signature restaurant, Spring & Varick, in New York's SoHo district. The millennial aptly hashtagged the pic of her brunch, "#yum #oysters #woohoo."

Although there's quite a bit of misinformation out there about the consumption of oysters, they are generally safe to eat — especially from high-end eateries like Spring & Varick, who would undoubtedly steam them long enough to kill any sea-borne bacteria.

And should you ask true foodies, many would likely tell you that Trump has the right idea with her brunch pick. "Oysters are really amazing, because they kind of take you somewhere," Jeremy Sewall, Boston-based chef, restaurateur and author of Oysters: A Celebration in the Raw, told Huffington Post in 2018. "Every farmed oyster [on the East Coast] is the same species [Crassostrea virginica], but they all taste and look different depending on where you go." 

Livin' that salad life

For Trump, it is easy being green — leafy green. The president's daughter loves a good bowl of fresh, prepared veggies and has even joked on Instagram that she lives "that salad life." According to Dr. Caroline Apovian for Everyday Health, Trump's penchant for this dish is healthy — as long as she keeps an eye on the toppings.

"Not all salads are created equal," says Apovian. "Lettuce — like iceberg, romaine, and arugula — is low in calories, as are tomatoes, carrots, celery, radishes, and green and red peppers. However, once you start adding sunflower seeds, chick peas and other cooked beans, and nuts, the calories start adding up." Apovian cautions that dressings, of course, can weigh salads down with unwanted calories and unhealthy fats (to the tune of 100 to 200 calories per two tablespoons!).   

But, otherwise, Trump should be good to eat salad every day. In 2016, Dr. Travis Stork — host of The Doctors and author of the bestselling The Doctor's Diet — emphasized some of the health benefits of eating salad to Fox News Health, including increasing good cholesterol and contributing to an anti-inflammatory state.  

All the truffles

Whether it's truffle fries during New York Fashion Week or the famed truffle pasta from NYC's Bar Pitti, Trump can't get enough of truffles. Of course, it's a good thing price isn't necessarily a factor for her, given the inherently expensive nature of these rare wild mushrooms. How expensive, exactly? Well, in 2010, a pair of white truffles went for a whopping $330,000, according to Today. In 2012, CBS dubbed them "the most expensive food in the world." 

 If you're wondering why truffles will set you back so much, well, it has a lot to do with accessibility. "Truffle is a wild product, it is a natural product. It is not something you can cultivate or control," Vittorio Giordano, the Vice President and Truffle Guru at historic Urbani Truffles USA, explained to Mental Floss in 2016. Because attempts to farm truffles have proven unfruitful, suppliers must employ truffle hunters with dogs to sniff the fungi out where they grow wild in Italy and France. 

Burrata and heirloom tomatoes are her fave

While on the West Coast, Trump apparently can't resist stopping into Beverly Hills bar and bistro Porta Via for a dish she claimed on Instagram is her "fav." If you'd never seen or had this particular dish before, you might just presume it is tomatoes topped with some sort of cream — and you'd sort of be right.

Per Porta Via's lunch menu, the dish is burrata with heirloom tomatoes topped with extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, and freshly ground pepper. Of course we know what tomatoes are. But what is burrata? It's not exactly on the menu at every restaurant. 

Burrata is "a fresh Italian cheese made from mozzarella and cream," according to The Kitchn. The fresh mozzarella in that mix makes up the solid outer curd. But inside that curd's hollowed out pouch is a "soft, stringy curd and fresh cream." Considering burrata translates to "buttered," it's not surprising that The Kitchn describes the taste of this type of cheese as having a "milky, buttery flavor."
