Portico 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.
Elsewhere, the dainty sweets – think masala chai tea cake, scones with honey kaya and plum preserve, baked apple crumble tart and bandung rose cream strawberry and lychee tart – completely overwhelms the arguably superior savoury and whacks the latter over the head with a clapping, shrieking seal, so give yourself the full two hours to indulge.
The Portico Favourites menu is available Tuesdays to Sundays from 3-5pm at $48 per pax (with a minimum of two persons) with a choice of free flow tea or coffee, and you can pay an additional $10 for a glass of Torresella Prosecco Brut NV Italy.
Portico Prime also offers a selection of alcoholic drinks. While we were there for the high tea, we also had a lychee martini (above) and coffee cocktail (below).
I 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.
