Frequently Asked Questions

Regalis ships all web orders Monday through Thursdays; due to our limited staff your order may take between 2-3 business days to ship.

We appreciate your patience and support in these challenging times.

All of our shipment rates are determined by FedEx, which adjust slightly day to day,  based on average business, weight of the products, and declared value. Therefore, the more items you have, the more weight and more declared value are present, ergo prices will go up.

Also, shipping is free on all orders over $250. Please select the free shipping selection in the checkout cart after entering your shipping address.

Due to our limited staff during this time, it may take our team 2-3 business days to process orders. Regalis ships orders Mondays-Thursdays. Any order placed after 8 am EST on Thursdays will typically get pushed to the next available shipping day. Unfortunately, we are unable to cancel orders at this time. 

Due to your pre-ordered item(s) potentially having a later shipment date, we will fulfill the rest of your order within our regular transit time and the pre-order item(s) will be shipped separately when soonest available.

Unfortunately at this time, in an effort to safeguard our employees in the wake of COVID-19, we are shipping all orders regardless of distance. We are diligently working on adding pickup functionality which we should have implemented by this Fall. Please stay tuned for updates.

Regalis takes pride in stocking a unique portfolio of products however there are some instances when product arrives late from overseas and must be bumped to the next available shipping day. Additionally, due to supply chain issues during these challenging times, some products are unfortunately not arriving as planned, and in these scenarios we will do our best to fulfill the majority of your order, offer a replacement if applicable and issue a credit for any unfulfilled items. For any other concerns please email us at: questions@regalisfoods.com

We are actively working on a preorder function for the website, however in the interium, if you are needing product to arrive by a specific date, please contact us prior to placing your order so that we can suggest the best day to place your order, but we cannot guarantee ship dates.

Unfortunately, Regalis is at the mercy of FedEx and due to COVID19, they are currently facing some delays. We ship all perishable ingredients in custom insulated boxes with ice packs and dry ice that can withstand heat for up to 48 hours. Ideally, all overnight orders will deliver the next day, however some shipments can experienced an additional day in transit due to unforeseen circumstances (i.e. : weather, flight delays) . For these particular orders, we will gladly work with you if product is overheated or spoiled. 

Due to the perishability of the goods we offer, as well as health and safety concerns with COVID-19, all sales are final. If you have received your order and there is something missing or incorrect, please email questions@regalisfoods.com for support. 

If you have received your order and there is something wrong, we are happy to assist by email, however we need photographic evidence within 24 hours of receipt.

FRESH & FROZEN TRUFFLE HANDLING INSTRUCTIONS

Fresh truffles should be wrapped in dry paper towels upon arrival and should be stored in a sealed container or bag. Refrigeration is a must. Another suggestion is storing them with the addition of whole, unbroken chicken eggs. Truffles continually are producing aroma compounds and if stored with eggs, they will “truffle-ize” and permeate the interior egg yolk by sheer proximity. This means that you can enjoy eggs that will ultimately taste like truffles without even having to use your treasured truffle! Other items that “truffe-ize” extremely well are butter, duck fat, or cheese. Truffles have an incredibly short shelf life and you can expect a life of up to 10 days if properly stored. 

Although historically the storing of truffles in rice is recommended, rice actually pulls all moisture and flavor out of the truffle and will shorten shelf life by over 50%.

Yes, please be home to accept your FedEx delivery. We are unable to offer credits or returns on orders that were not deliverable and subsequently temperature abused.

For the best aroma and flavor experience, consume fresh truffles within 48 hours of receiving. 

Truffles may occasionally have a small amount of white mold on their exterior called mycelium (just like cheese!), this is totally safe! To preserve the quality of the truffle, simply brush the mold off with a clean towel or small brush. Keeping truffles dry will help control future mold growth. 

Fresh truffles are best when served at room temperature. Remove truffles from the refrigerator 2 hours before serving to bring to room temperature. White truffles in particular should never be heated but rather shaved atop a dish with either a truffle shaver, mandolin, or micro-planer “a la minute”, meaning, as soon as its served. Prolonged heat will kill any white truffle flavor so it is important to shave right before consuming. Black Truffles on the contrary can be cooked, and we find that warming/cooking does bring out even more flavor with regards to black truffles.

Truffles bind to fat, so for the best truffle experience, pair truffles with eggs, cheese, cream, or really any fat.

If you are wanting to shave your frozen truffle, only thaw partially. Truffles are 98% water, therefore during the freezing and thawing process your truffle will become soft due to condensation. Once fully thawed, we recommend mincing or thinly julienning.

CAVIAR HANDLING AND SERVING QUESTIONS

Yes! Please store all caviar inside the refrigerator upon receipt. Caviar should be kept as cold as possible so we reccomend storing caviar on a bed of ice in the refrigerator. Do not freeze!

Caviar should be served as cold as possible on a bed of ice.

We recommend consuming caviar within 2 weeks of receipt. 

Technically "caviar" needs to originate from a sturgeon. All other "caviar" is considered a "roe".

SEAFOOD HANDLING INSTRUCTIONS

Please be careful when unpacking your live seafood. Their shells may be covered in spines and they have claws that can be very dangerous. Please wear gloves or use kitchen tongs when handling. Please keep them cold and consume within 24 hours of receipt, as they will become weak and die the longer they stay out of water and out of refrigeration.

We pride ourself in carefully packing all of our products especially our live seafoods. We pack our live product in temperature controlled boxes with the aid of ice packs and pump additional oxygen into every box to prolong liveliness. In the rare scenario that you're live seafood arrives dead please contact questions@regalisfoods.com and a member of our team will respond with instructions. We offer a 20% discount for dead seafood on arrival however unforunately we do not offer refunds or returns.

Unfortunately due to FedEX safe shipping regulations, we are unable to ship frozen seafood items with dry ice. We instead ship all frozen seafood with ice packs and product will arrive partially thawed and ready to cook and consume.

All of our fresh day-boat fish is cut to order and fulfilled directly from our team of fisherman in Southern California. There is nothing fresher on the market. When we pack all of our fish, we use a salt-ice blend to ensure coldness is maintained throughout its journey from the dock to your door. This salt-ice slurry will smell fishy when you receive your product. There is no need to panic! Please remove the fish from the plastic, pat dry and refrigerate immediately. Please do not judge the fish quality based on the smell of the shipping carton.

If you still think there is something wrong with your order, please send us photos within 24 hours. We cannot process any claims without photos of the product received.

WAGYU MEAT QUESTIONS

We try our best to ensure every cut is within our advertised weight range. Unfortunately, sometimes sizes may vary. If you receive a piece of meat that falls outside of our advertised weight range, please email us for assistance. 

Yes absolutely! Due to the extremely high fat content, all of our Wagyu can be frozen for long term storage without any degredation of quality.
