With a refreshed all-day ala carte menu, launched since the beginning of March, there are new creations waiting to excite diners of PORTA. Starting off with an appetizer such as the Parma Ham ($16) will help open your tastebuds as this dish tingles with your three tastes’ categories in sweet, salty and sour. The dish comprises of a mesclun salad with watermelon cubes that have been compressed with lime juice and lime zest and Parma ham. A little drizzle of balsamic vinegar and some Thai lime aioli by the side adds life into the dish. For the main courses, diners can choose between the Black Cod ($29) or the Venus Clams ($24), with the latter slightly edging out for me though the former is very good as well. The delicate and oily fish, coated with a pistachio and puffed rice layer, is pan-seared skin down to get a crispy exterior before finishing it in the oven and served with a baby spinach puree and edible flowers. For the pasta dish, capellini is cooked in a clam stock that contains shio kombu to give it the savouriness while the Indonesia clams brings a touch of sweetness to the overall mouthfeel. What probably is the ingenious touch is adding lots of sliced garlic and a chilli padi into the cooking to spice things up a little while sakura ebi completes the finishing garnish. •••••••••••••••••••• 📍PORTA 1 Unity Street, Park Hotel Clarke Quay, Level 1, Singapore 237983

Seafood Cream Pasta (Burpple 1 For 1) Seafood cream pasta $19 Cheese steak burger $18 Worth it with burpple 1 for 1 for sure! Seafood cream pasta was very tasty - the broth was 💯. Pasta was cooked al dente. Serving was generous as a whole though I didn’t think much about the seafood in the dish. Would return to eat this again! Cheese steak burger (not pictured) is also a popular dish of theirs but thought it was okay. Meat was tough but overall taste was good enough. Coffee was quite decent!

Foie Gras Pasta I have not regretted ordering this unique Foie Gras Pasta ($23++) and it is power packed with rich, creamy, crunhy fish roes and the umami taste of duck liver. This main is indeed one of a kind and leaves you coming back for more. Would definitely recommend this dish.

Miso Salmon ($20) I had a very good impression of The Communal Place since my previous visit last year and I was excited to be back. It seemed like Miso Salmon had many raving reviews on Burpple so I ordered it. I don't think there's any thing about this dish that I liked. The salmon was too tough and dry for my liking (I've had worse). It wasn't a huge slab of salmon but I had difficulty finishing it because it was dry. The miso sauce didn't do much to help salvage the situation. The side veggies were nothing to shout about but that's okay. The mashed potatoes were just acceptable. Not as buttery or as creamy as I remembered it to be. It could be an off day for them, as I've heard nothing but good things about this place. Given my experience here today, I don't think I'll be back any time soon:/

Angus Striploin ($48) Got the Angus Striploin ($48) in medium, texture is alright overall but there were a lot of ligaments, making it a bit difficult to chew. Mash potato was smooth, vegetables were okay. Would be better with more sauce!

Seasoned Gyutan Its my first time trying ox tongue, a local delicacy from Sendai in the Miyazaki prefecture (this one is from Senri)! The aburi smell was really strong and mouthwatering, and the aburi torching really gives it that oomph from the Maillard reaction. I could tell the cook on the beef was perfect. The beef itself doesn't have a super strong gamey flavor nor is it particularly juicy but it's got a distinctive chewy texture. I can see why this is an acquired taste. It comes with some spicy paste and I added an onsen egg to dip the beef into the glorious yellow yolk. It's also paired with some refreshing salad. I really liked this one and would go for a repeat order next time. This is the medium size with 150 grams of beef and cost $32. 8/10

Wagyu Hamburg Steak and Salad Set Good quality Japanese-style hamburg is hard to find but this one from the brand Fukuyoshi really ticked all the boxes. ($15) It is formulated with Hokkaido Kuroge Wagyu and is so delicate and tender it just barely holds together. The patty cuts open with the press of a fork. It is super juicy too, I can literally see the juices flowing out as I cut past that beautifully caramelized crust. I only wish it was seasoned a teeny weeny bit more, as I relied more on the accompanying sauce for flavor. It's served with great flair on a black ceramic plate with some crispy potato wedges and salad. 8/10

Karamasa Kaarage (4pcs) This is from the brand Karamasa, specializing in Kaarage, deep fried chicken. This is honestly a steal at $7.50 for four humongous chunks of chicken (I'm talking about the size of my palm kind of big), served with a salad. It tasted so authentic. The batter used was potato starch based, and just coats the huge piece of chicken evenly. (No huge chunks of flour or batter here!) The batter wasn't soggy and there was a perfect chicken to batter ratio. The chicken was deep-fried to a crispy perfection and yet still retained its tenderness and juiciness. There's an audible crunch when I bit into it, and I could actually taste the chicken juices erupt out of it. It comes with some sweet dipping sauce, but I would order the tartar version next time because I think this slightly underseasoned chicken needs the heaviness and richness of the tartar sauce. But still, this plate is honestly holds one of the most delicious and most value-for-money karaages around. 9.5/10
