Food: Porto Bello @ Damansara Uptown

As the place suggest, this place has got a lot to do with Porto Bello ( In case you dont know, porto bello is actually a type of mushroom found in the Europe and North America which comes in 2 different colours either brown or white). I have always wanted to taste the food here and see whether or not it does meet my expectation. Afterall, most of my friends had been there and told me it was good and I should really try it.

 Porto Bello
Welcoming entrance of Porto Bello!

Last weekend, my "foodies" and me was invited for a food review session at place located at the heart of Damansara Uptown. My first impression of this place was that it has very clean, relaxing, and comfortable surrounding best suited for family and friends gathering. The staffs here are "super duper" friendly as well!



Memories corner
This pork-free restaurant/cafe also has this corner for you to pin up your Polaroids :)

We were served with their All new Porto Bello Brunch set which only available on weekends and public holiday. Just add-on of RM5 to the set of your choice for your coffee fix of the day! 


Big Breakfast ( Set A)
It comes with a choice of chicken or beef sausage, turkey ham or streaky beef, hash brown, scrambled eggs or sunny side-up, roasted tomato, sauteed wild mushroom, toasted wholemeal bread, baked beans, and garden salad. 


 Porto Bello's Sunrise (Set B)
It comes with a Porto Bello Mushroom topped with chicken ham bechamel sauce, a choice between turkey ham or streaky beef, garden salad, sunny side-up, hash brown and baked beans

( This was one of my favorites there that evening! I love the combination of the chicken ham bechamel sauce which matches well with the porto bello underneath and the sunny side-up. This is a MUST TRY!)



Volcano surprise
It comes with porto bello mushroom with chicken bolognese sauce and a sunny side-up to topped it off, a choice of turkey ham or streaky  beef, garden salad, hash brown, baked beans and mozarella cheese. 

( To those bolognese lovers out there, this is just the kind of breakfast you've been looking for!)


Here's some of the appetizers that they serve here at Porto Bello,


 Tuna Tartar
A unique combination of fresh tuna, cucumber, spring onions, fresh avocado, pickled ginger, a tad bit of wasabi and tosa soy to topped it off.
( I personally like this appetizer a lot as the taste is rather unique where I cannot find it elsewhere!)

 Wild Mushroom soup



French Escargot ( 6pcs)
Escargot baked with bed of creamy garlic cheese based sauce
( This is yums-to-tums! To those cheese lovers out there, this will definitely suit pamper your taste buds!) MUST TRY!  


 Buffalo Wings
Fried buffalo wings served with spicy barbeque sauce and blue cheese dressings.

( I personally prefer the unique blue cheese dressing dip. Honestly, this was my first time trying buffalo wings dipping in blue cheese, to my surprise, it was rather good! I love it from the first bite itself!)

Next, we ordered some MAINS and here it is!


 Braised Beef Bourgouignone
