PORTA Singapore steps to the fore with a bigger and better all-day dining programme—touted with brunch all week, pastas on rotation, desserts made divine, and tipples to take the edge off. Aptly termed ‘doorway’ in Portuguese, PORTA Singapore opens its gates to an eclectic haven of affordable modern European cuisine and epicurean treasures from around the world. You will be happy to know that it is a pet-friendly establishment too!
PORTA Singapore – It’s Brunch Time, Anytime!
There’s no need to hold out until the weekend for your brunch fix—PORTA serves up the most important meal of the day from 8.00am to 4.00pm, seven days a week. New to the brunch menu is an age-old French classic of Croque-Madame (S$14++); brioche sandwich stuffed with Mangalica ham, oozing with Emmental and béchamel, and topped with a sunny-side-up egg.
A definite hit, Spanish Breakfast (S$14++) brings together the works— cannellini beans, spicy pork chorizo, tomato coulis, and baked eggs—in an ensemble that’s hard to refuse. Folks who are looking for something simpler in taste may find the Smoked Salmon Burger (S$15++); toasted, buttered brioche buns with Applewood-smoked salmon, scrambled eggs, served with roasted potatoes, to be right up their alley.
Pooches are welcomed on the alfresco deck during brunch—be it to bask in the midday sun, mingle with fellow four-legged friends, or simply spend some quality paw-rent and fur-kid bonding time.
PORTA Singapore – All in a Bowl’s Worth
Having snagged a top 20 spot in SR Signatures 2017—a celebration of the finest dishes along the Singapore River—with Prawn & Chorizo Pasta (S$22++), PORTA brings together more popular pairings for Chef’s Special Pasta of the Week (S$20++).
New on the pasta menu is the Chilled Angel Hair Pasta (S$14++)—a divine toss-up of crab meat, sesame, salmon roe, and chives, in a luxe lobster vinaigrette.
PORTA Singapore – Comfy Classics
Fans of PORTA can look forward to indulging in an epicurean spread of signature dishes from starters such as the Spanish Octopus (S$18++) from Ria de Arousa, grilled to smoky perfection, complemented with spiced patatas bravas;
New from the dock is the Norwegian Salmon (S$22++) with root vegetables puree and sauces vierge, as well as the Seared Tuna Nicoise Salad (S$15++), served with fine beans, vine tomatoes, and black olives, which makes for a cleaner, yet satisfying meal.
PORTA Singapore – Gin, Vino, and Slurry Giggles
Expect a wider array of tipples with an exciting selection of gin-based cocktails, as well as imported wines. Swap your usual gin and tonics with The Adventures of Robin Hood (S$22++) and Objective, Burma! (S$20++)—made with Brooklyn Gin, and St. George Terroir Gin respectively—and topped with Old World Tonic and cardamom bitters; perfect for an office get together for a sip or two after a long workweek, or on a lazy weekend.
PORTA Singapore – Taking A “PORTA” Me Home
