Portico's Braised Beef Cheek

$32.00 ยท 4 Reviews

The tender beef cheek surrenders its form at the slightest touch of your fork, hinting at the melt-in-your-mouth tenderness that is forthcoming upon first bite. Make sure to generously swirl each and every piece of meat in the robust red wine sauce, perhaps even smear a little of the buttery smooth mash atop. They try their hardest, but the pearl onions and fresh yuzu compressed sweet pear balls will not distract me from the meaty task at hand.

Taste: 4/5

Moist, savoury, fork tender beef cheeks on a bed of creamy smooth pommery mustard mashed potatoes.

Paired with tender, earthy shiitake mushrooms, and unique yuzu compressed pear chunks; floral, zesty, and fruity all at once!

Hearty comfort food!


Love how the fork-tender beef soaks up all that astringent red wine gravy, with amazingly creamy mash to complement the meaty bite, and crunchy pickled shallots to add a refreshing tang.
