Entering the Portico premises you are greeted by our friendly staff amidst the smell of fragrant herbs. The sprawling outdoor space, which can seat 100, is surrounded by the restaurant’s own edible garden. Portico’s relaxed indoor space is reminiscent of an elegantly designed living room in a favoured friend’s home. Surrounded by the sprawling herb and vegetable garden, the warm dining room beckons guests to gather with their friends and linger over a delicious meal and chill out over drinks. The ambiance is laid-back, warm and inviting.
The Portico menu has been imagineered to provide hearty food using fresh seasonal ingredients – where possible these ingredients are sourced locally or are taken from our own edible garden. We consider ourselves Singavores or Singapore “locavores”, a movement that focuses on sourcing and eating food locally. For example we work very closely with Tiberias Harvest, which offers fish delivered within hours from its sea farm, located off the north-eastern coast of Pulau Ubin. They emphasise using the right techniques in their harvest and post-harvest process, to ensure the quality of each order.
A menu replete with a full selection of foods, from hearty snacks, healthy soups and salads, and filling sandwiches, through to generous main courses, followed by tempting desserts. All of these options are served in the Portico’s simple, homely style. Simple presentation does not mean simple tastes though. A lot of thought is focused towards flavours, textures and presentation without neglecting the soul and essence of the dish.
