Their kombu Butter was not disappointing at all, oh the sweet and umami-ness of it and it paired very well with their Sourdough which I love the texture (not overly crunchy) but could do with alittle more sourness. I definitely wouldn't mind starting my day with a plate of this simple delights 🤤
Cause I sure do.
Fried to perfection, Portico Host’s Beer Battered Fish & Chip ($23) was really quite satisfying. Nice and even, the coating on the chunky Seabass fillets were not too thin or thick and managed to lock in the moisture of the fish. And to me though using Seabass seems to be somewhat a waste for fish and chips, it had a great texture (lean and flaky) and you can get the natural sweetness of the fish. With no lemon provided on the plate, I got a hint of citrus on the batter as well. It also comes with a touch of asian flavours in a form of their Lime-Scented Apple Waldorf Salad in the middle. The slightly sharp and tangy dressing serves to break the monotony of the fried items and refresh the palate.

Some hits and misses at The Masses, but decent enough, with the same concept of restaurant-quality food at relatively more affordable prices.
For starters, go for The Egg ($9), smooth steamed egg topped with a generous mountain of ikura, tobiko and homemade potato chips - so keep the photo-taking to a minimal or the chips turn soggy. I liked how it was a party of textures and flavours with that salty burst. Available in hot or cold version.
Having read reviews and seen that impressive pasta twirl topped generously with caviar and crabmeat we knew we had to try it. Decent, but flavours of the sauce and crabmeat with the cold angel hair pasta was light and didn't quite stand out.
For mains, we wanted a little land, sea, air whatever so Fish & Chips ($14.90) it was - and well, skip it - it was sadly bland, flakey, crabmeat gremolata did little to help + chips tasted like they were the frozen kind. Hoping it's just a bad day but anyhoo, go instead for our unanimous favourite, the Duroc Pork Loin ($15)! Incredibly tender, juicy; a good proportion of lean meat and fattiness, creamy scrambled egg with a subtle hint of truffle aroma, served with chicharron (wasn't a fan of it here) plum, and Brussel sprouts.
Cos' if it ain't broke don't fix it; for a fail-proof tried-and-tested option, get the duck leg confit ($12.90). Like Saveur's with crisp skin and tender flesh, but with croquette instead of that lovely mash. Served with candied orange and foie gras sauce.
It comes topped with full of ikura and tobiko that provides a burst of flavours, while the homemade potato chips were slightly crispy and pretty pleasant to have, not turning soggy easily.
What I find truly amazing is how the ice remains rock hard and glued to the exterior of the glass even after some time.

The Masses take on contemporary happy food.
Fresh clams cooked in chicken soup to give an additional hint of seafood freshness in the luscious broth.
Packed with collagen and would probably makes my skin goes smoother.
This is a light and refreshing appetizer with a bit of creaminess and some spicy kick.
I like how refreshing the Julienne iceberg lettuce was, and tomato concasse which was tossed with extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and pepper. It was then topped with generosity chunks of blue swimmer crab lumps, which was mixed with house made Louis dressing.. A little creamy and a bit spicy.

(Yes it's shaved macadamia nuts, not cheese taste it & one will know why) 😋
Pair it with the given veg that's sprinkled with cranberry powder for the umami "OMG that's good?! Wait what?! Raw Mutton with hints of Foie Gras?!" Yes, calm down fam. 🏵
ACAMASTIPS💮: Out of all the courses, this stood out to me. It doesn't have the Mutton smell that many feared & it's simply sublime. 🖖🏻
An ice cream sandwich with candied bacon and infused bowmore 18 year is the way to end all lunches. Jam pack with flavours, the dessert is a wonderful overload of sweetness and an excellent foil to that Iberico pork chop. People will remember this combination for awhile.
Its minimalist look disguised the intensity of flavours from the cure and the meat as well as the pickled ume. Paired with the 18 year @bowmoredistillery Travelers series gives it that 4th dimension of sensory experience. If you like bourbon, the 15 year plays nicely with this as well.
Admittedly, just reading the menu of what goes into the Fatcow Premium Donburi had me whimpering in excitement.
At $98++, it is possibly the most decadent Japanese don (rice bowl) I have had to date. Served on a bed of rice were:
- A slab of Wagyu steak (I asked for mine to be done medium-rare and it was perfect)
- Pan-seared chunks of creamy foie gras
- Bafun uni
- Onsen egg
As the portion for this a la carte item is a little larger than the rice bowls from the set lunch menu, I'd say this is a good choice if you're famished or in the mood to indulge.
