Portico Prime @ Dempsey Hill

portico prime 1

Where to find food in the early Sunday morning to celebrate Father’s Day? My two quick-witted kids JiaQi and Yusen spare no time suggest Portico Prime at Dempsey which serves Brunch starts as early as 9am. So, here we go.

The cafe is the second outlets of Portico, finding its way to the famous food belt together with other popular cafes and restaurants in Dempsey Hill. Portico occupies an old army barrack that enclave nestled in a rustic and idyllic surrounded by greenery, the setting retains much of the legacy facade that imbued with old-world colonial charm through the brick walls and columns. High ceiling and outdoor sittings provide plenty of space with a close touch to nature.

Portico Prime English Breakfast Special $26 

portico prime 2

Grilled pork sausage, sunny side up, sautéed Portobello mushrooms, roasted bacon, baked bean, pan fried cheery tomatoes and hash brown. A heavy weight brunch plate goes best with my heavy capacity’s son. Everything was fine except the deep fried bacon, the sodium was so much that no difference than eating spoonfuls of salt, rancid oil smelling further upset our mood that we have to make a complaint to the kitchen.

Pancake Savoury $16

portico prime 3

The wheat pancake was topped with avocado, scrambled eggs and salad. The wheat pancake could be fluffier and fragrance, it has to rely on the Maple syrup to lift up the overall taste.

Omelette $20

portico prime 5

Scrambled eggs, garlic toast, truffle Portobello mushroom and mesclun salad, seriously, how much can go wrong with this dish.

Smoked Salmon Gravlax Scrambled Eggs $20

portico prime 6

Salmon, scrambled eggs and salad, a fairly standard breakfast dish.

Portico Prime Verdict :

Food might not be the primary goal when dining at Portico Prime, what we enjoyed most was a great moment of tranquil ambience. Food is generally acceptable (except the rancid bacon!)
