To start off, we had the Tuna Tartar as our appetizer. It is a fantastic Italian Japanese fusion that marries the fresh raw tuna (french style), avocado and tsukini pieces mix with tosa soy and served wasabi, aioli,masago (flying fish roe) ginger pickle, and togarashi crips add a dimension to tingle your tastebud. You get an explosion of flavours in your mouth.

The new menu offering are the Big Breakfast Set, the first of which is the Big Breakfast Set.

Followed by the Porto Bello Sunrise which has the Porto Bello Mushroom as the base, served with chicken ham with Bechamel Sauce (wonderfully done with a strong creamy taste), with a choice of either turkey ham or streaky beef, a sunny side up which the yolk blended with the sauce and mushroom was just the right and perfect combination. Comes with fresh garden salad and baked beans with melted mozzarella cheese topping.

Followed by the Lamb rack which was superbly grilled to perfection while retaining its juicy succulent and tender meat served on a bed of mashed potatoes and sauteed mushroom. It comes with a light minty cream yoghurt sauce which blend well with the grill meat.

We also did tried one of the beef dishes which was the Braised Beef Bourgouignone - a French braised hearty stew cooked with radish, carrot and potatoes. The sauce was a perfect match with the soft toasted wholemeal bread.

Fried Buffalo Wings - a super crispy fried drummet with a strong tinge of spiciness from the

One of the new drinks offering was the Cucumber Mojito which was super refreshing and as I was having a minor sore throat, this drink which was infused with freshly mint leaves, was just the perfect concoction to sooth my dry throat.
