I've always wanted to dine at Porteno, especially to taste their renowned wood-fired pig. So when K and M wanted to have dinner there, I was definitely in. I'd like to apologise for the poor photo quality, my iPhone didn't play well with the dimly lit restaurant.
The menu is a smorgasbord of meat; chicken, beef, pork, lamb, sausages and even sweetbreads! There's also a nice selection of side dishes including polenta, cassava and vegetables. After studying the menu for a few minutes, the three of us decide on the Wood-fired pig, polenta and beef short ribs.

After all three of us take our obligatory photos of our delicious dishes, we dig in.
|White Polenta with Gorgonzola & Walnuts $16|
|Beef Short Ribs $40|
|8 Hour Wood-fired Pig $46|
Will I return?
Yes, for that 8 hour pig. I mean this pig sacrificed himself by sleeping in a wood fired oven, just so I can eat him.
