One of the things I am starting to appreciate about dating a writer is that I get to tag along his work lunch, and this time it was in Portofino Italian Restaurant at the Venetian Macao. This allows us to bond despite how hectic a week can get.

Here’s a quick route suggestion.

Enter the Venetian through the car park , take the escalator up to the casino and look for a DFS entrance in the far left,  you’ll find it upon exiting the casino.
OR
Enter the Venetian through the West Lobby , from there walk to McSorley’s Ale House or Cafe Deco , you can turn right when you see the Venetian theater ticketing. Just keep going straight and you’ll find Portofino.
If all else fails, ask the concierge or security to direct you , they’re pretty helpful too.

Food

In a particular order:

  • Bread
  • Caprino e tartufo  Torched goat cheese, Romaine lettuce , frisée salad, Belgium endive, asparagus, Italian winter truffle crumble 
  • Guanciotte di Manzo Brasate al Chianti Braised Wagyu beef cheek ,crushed potato, garlic , shallots, baby carrots , Chinati red wine jus 
  • Linguine Fra Diavolo Whole Boston lobster , linguine , spicy tomato sauce 
  • Tiramisu Mascarpone , savoiardi , espresso coffee and Marsala wine 
  • House Coffee

My Favorites:
  • Bread The garlic mayo was just a perfect combo with the bread selection. 
  • Guanciotte di Manzo Brasate al Chianti Soft and tender beef, it feels like it melts in your mouth. 

I look forward to writing more in the coming weeks as I manage my time better these days. I still remember why I started blogging and how I had a number of things I wanted to blog about. But for now, real life awaits me. Toodles!
