My friends, Joe and I paid a visit to Porto Bello at Damansara Uptown over one weekend in December. The restaurant is located opposite UOB Bank, the row of shops opposite the famous Village Park nasi lemak. I've read some reviews on Porto Bello prior to our visit, so I was quite excited to try it out. We were kind of lucky to find a parking nearby, as it's no secret that Damansara Uptown is a nightmare when it comes to finding a parking space.
 
We decided to share the food among 4 of us, since we were planning to go for some dessert hunting after that.
 
French Escargot - 6pcs (RM 13.90)
French Escargot (RM 13.90). The escargot was perfectly baked in delicious garlic cheese.
 
Homemade Wild Mushroom Soup (RM 8.90)
Homemade Wild Mushroom Soup (RM 8.90). By incorporating different types of mushroom, the soup was really earthy and rice.  It was another satisfying starter for us.
 
Sautéed Wild Mushroom (RM 6.90)
 
Sautéed Wild Mushroom (RM 6.90). Frankly, we were kind of disappointed when we saw the portion, as we were expecting the portion to be bigger. However, I really like this dish a lot - the earthiness of the different type of mushrooms really came through.
 
Barbeque Smoke Chicken - Half (RM 29.90)
Barbeque Smoke Chicken - Half (RM 29.90). We came across couple of positive reviews on the BBQ chicken, so we decided to try it out. The chicken was well seasoned and the meat was tender. Personally, I don't fancy BBQ sauce or any smoked food; but if you are one, then you might want to try this out.

Braised Beef Bourguignon (RM 29.90)
Braised Beef Bourguignon (RM 29.90). The beef was braised till fork tender with red wine. Though the portion might be small, but it's packed with flavours. The red wine reduction was so delicious that we did not waste a single drop of it. For me, this dish was the highlight of that day and it's definitely something I'll order again.

Overall, the food was really satisfying and I'll definitely drop by again in the near future.

    1. Thank you very much. It's not slimy at all. They are almost tasteless so you'll need gravy with strong flavours to go with it.
