Southeast Asian Food at Portman’s Restaurant
The “Naturally Southeast Asian” menu pays tribute to the origins of The Portman Ritz-Carlton’s team, led by Singaporean Executive Sous Chef Chia Jue Xian. It’s a fresh new take from their previous dinner offerings, focusing on Singaporean, Malaysian, Thai, Indonesian and Chinese dishes.
As a Malaysian, I can attest to the authenticity of the wok-fried Mee Goreng Mamak, noodles with shrimp and chicken, and the tangy Ikan Assam Pedas fish curry. And if you love durian as much as I do, you’ll fall head over heels for the ultra-rich durian crème brûlée.
It’s a sizeable menu! There are also crowd favorites of tom yum goong, satay, rendang (short rib), Hainanese chicken rice and laksa.
The Food: Curries, Noodles & Seafood
As for drinks, they have a few Southeast Asian-inclined beverages, including teh tarik (pulled tea) and calamansi plum drink, as well as cocktails.
Favorite dishes / will order again: Sambal King Prawns, Assam Pedas Fish, Lamb Curry, Mee Goreng Mamak, durian dessert.
They also have a couple of set menus, five dishes for two to share for ¥398 or eight dishes for four to share for ¥898. I’ve added one a Nomfluence set menu below, which include all my favorite dishes listed above.
