Portico Favourites High Tea Menu - Portico PrimePortico Favourites high tea menu at Portico Prime. Terrific value for money for the quality and quantity on display. The chilled truffle-scented angel hair pasta with avruga caviar and kawa ebi shrimps barges into your sensory pleasure memory orbs with the rapacious ruthlessness of a disgruntled Bukit Gombak-residing Ah Ma in a 6:13pm EW Line train and the éclair of Singapore-style chilli crab meat is an alluringly feisty little runt.

Portico Favourites High Tea Menu - Portico PrimePortico Favourites High Tea Menu - Portico PrimeI must say the outdoor ambience and general feels are really conducive for both tai-tai high tea sessions and daytime glamorous degenerate drinking whilst HTHTing. Definitely a place worth (re)visiting, be it for the high tea or main menu.

Shawn began documenting his food experiences since he started reading Law at the National University of Singapore. Initially he turned to food for solace from the rigours of university life, and food eventually became his safe haven away from the horrors of legal practice. However, it dawned on him one day that he has become sufficiently enlightened about the magic of discovering new and good food, and that it was time to share his findings with others. Instead of aligning himself with the vast sea of vanilla foodie influencer-style of writing, which would admittedly open more doors in terms of free meals and public relations love, Shawn decided to approach food writing by way of satirical humour, turning the don't-ya-wanna-eat-what-I'm-eating-cuz-I'm-a-public-figure self-importance/self-indulgent gravitas of Instagram foodie-ism in Singapore on its head and conveying his thoughts about food in a manner which is decidedly obscure at times and on others, frankly nonsensical. The rigours of legal practice and desire for a form of indulgent escape led to Shawn's second passion - experiencing and writing about new and luxury hotel properties. Secret Life of Fatbacks is an extension of Shawn's Instagram account (@Larvitar). For intellectual property reasons, he is unable to name the website anything related to the titular Pokémon character. Feel free to ask him in person what "Fatbacks" refers to. Shawn is not a professional critic, blogger or photographer. He is simply a guy who loves food and luxury hotels very much and (likes to think that he has) a quirky sense of humor. Shawn is presently a full-time lawyer, and when he is not premature ageing due to stress and vicious deadlines, he is somewhere spending an exorbitant amount of money trying out new dining places and hotels.
