Disappointing

Portico has been on my dinner list for awhile given the favourable feedback that I have had from my friends. Looking for a quiet spot for dinner, I decided to pay a visit at a recent weekend. Unfortunately, the food did not meet up to my expectations.

I started with the Salt and Pepper Squid ($8), which was really dry and lacked in taste.

I then tried the Seafood Risotto ($27), which I found to be too watery.

The Wagyu Beef Cheek ($29) was alright, marinated in deep red wine sauce.

However, for dessert, the deconstructed Blackforest ($14) was a disappointment as the tough chocolate bits made it a tough eat and the bits did not gel. For an idea of what a good deconstructed blackforest should be, go visit Harry's - yes the bar.

A better dessert choice was the Deep Fried Banana ($16), but once again did not what to make out of the dish as a whole.

Overall, not sure how this is an Italian place, more of a European inspired menu which did not work for me.

Critics' Reviews
Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
