So what’s the occasion? It’s Mr. D’s birthday…yeaay….another celebration dinner, me likey. I’ve prepared my tummy since morning for this birthday feast, hahahaha.
Portico is a restaurant and bar specializing in Italian cuisine. Portico is located in ground floor of Senayan City with terrace style setting and open view. The restaurant used transparent looking glass for the walls so I could only imagine how hot it would be in the daytime, geez. Luckily, we went to Portico for dinner, so the atmosphere was nicer, more intimate and romantic. Plus since it’s holiday season, we could enjoy all the lights decoration that was sprung along the street of Asia Africa. Besides Italian cuisines, Portico also served several Asian menus such as Oxtail soup and etc.
That night I’ve ordered Roasted spring chicken (95k) – Half of chicken, wild mushroom sauce, farm vegetables, potato wedges, truffle oil. Thumbs up for the mushroom sauce and the potato wedges. The mushroom sauce was very rich and tasty, even Mr.D as a person who never fond of mushrooms ending up using it for dips. As for the potato wedges, it was perfectly seasoned, savory.
Mr.D ordered Margherita pizza (49k) – Tomato sauce, fresh Romano, boconcinni mozzarella, basil. The pizza was nice, thin crispy crust… and lots of melted cheese on top, yummy!
For the drinks … Fresh lychee juice (30k) for Mr.D and Smashing kiwi (45k) for me – A sweet mix of fresh kiwi, lychee syrup, and orange juice. We like both drinks, refreshing…
It was such a nice ambience to dine here….We really enjoyed it, surely will visit it again next time.
