Be welcomed by its lovely garden and sprawling alfresco space when you stepped into Portico Host. A lovely venue where one will enjoy chilling out with families and friends over some drinks. Seemingly, a hidden gem among the commercial buildings.
In fact, the main dining hall area is of such homely feel that one finds it a cozy venue to dine in with families and friends, a great venue for catching up.
The Duo Crab is a delighting dish, filled with elements of surprise. Deep fried baby crabs, so crispy that you can eat it on its own or with the edible soil which is actually of salted egg. Dip your fried mantou into the chili mud crab meat dip but it would have score better if the spicy level of the dip is slight raised.
The Trio of skin includes deep fried eel skin and pork floss, chicken skin with host seasoning and the pork skin crackling. These are great snacks that goes well with the beer or on themselves! My personal favourite got to be the fried chicken skin which is so crispy and flavourful that I couldn't stop helping myself with it.
Next come the main courses.
The Grilled Octopus is certainly not the dish for me as I have never really fancy eating octopus. However, undeniably, the plating is beautiful and the Sous-vide potatoes chunks taste awesome!
The BBQ Pork rib, with a tangy BBQ sauce, is tenderly grilled and can be easily cut into pieces. The portion is huge, thus, it is recommended to share if you are a small eater.
The flower pot of Tiramisu sits on the bed of edible soil, made up of mashed Oreo cookies. It can hardly go wrong by ordering the Tiramisu here.
Love Cream Brulee? Then you should give it a try to the Kaya Cream Brulee. A fusion dessert with local flavour - Kaya. On a side note, it is on the sweeter side, so this may not suit the taste of those who does not have a sweet tooth.
