Extremely value-for-money set lunches

For the full review, please go to http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.sg/2014/07/portico.html

Although lunch wasn't a slamdunk, the food was hearty and charming in a simple, unpretentious way. 

And be sure to get their set lunch, attractively priced at only $28 for a food coma-inducing substantive 2-course set.

We had:

1) Caesar Salad (part of the set lunch appetizer option and at $16 ala carte price): so huge it can pass off for a full meal in itself. Moist, smoky, grilled chicken, crisp bacon, garlic croutons, shaved parmesan and mesclun greens are held together by a salty anchovy dressing. It was real fun smearing the wobbly soft poached 63degree egg all over the salad. 

2) Cauliflower Truffle Soup (part of set lunch appetizer option and at $13 ala carte price): unfortunately, too cloying on the cream, and even copious lashings of truffle oil and the fresh oniony chives couldn't quite save the dish. 
 
3) BBQ Chicken (part of set lunch main course option and at $23 ala carte price): succulent, juicy, and imbued with an aromatic char, was sided by a spiced tomato chutney and skewered baby potatoes, pineapples and cherry tomatoes.

4) The Japanese-influenced Spaghetti Aglio Olio (part of set lunch main course option and at $18 ala carte price) was texturised by a shitake saute, garlic chips, and ladys finger tempura fritter. The unique fusion worked well.

5) Another Japanese-inspired dish, the chilled Kombu Soba Noodles ($19) was made delightfully crunchy with the generous addition of  candy-crisp brown shrimp and toasted buckwheat seeds. Truffle oil and kelp flavoured the chewy noodle

sunny brunch

we visited Portico a while back but i thought, better late than never :)

they didn't have a lot of selection that sunday since their chef was on leave, anyhow our food was great. we had Full English Breakfast and Burger which were very good. Then followed by Portico Fruit Salad and Warm Nutella Brownie. Fruit Salad was ...... ok, I mean it would be difficult to do something specail to fruit salad but the brownie was good. 

overall - nice place to visit with your friends and family.

Not good

went for weekday set lunch. restaurant smelled of stale truffle oil and there were flies everywhere. dead flower arrangements. salmon was so salty; eton mess was overly sweet. coffee/tea not included in set. food took a long time to come out. piad $100 for 2 for lunch - so not worth it. toilet is outside restaurant - floor was wet and toilet dirty.
