A few weeks back, we ate at Porteno, an Argentinian Restaurant in Surry Hills. This restaurant is awarded the 2 Chef's Hat (Australia's version of Michelin Star). I'm no food critic and when it comes to food I am pleased easily. But my husband being a chef, is very difficult to please, and he was very happy with the food.
The chefs/owners in action. They were named as Australia's Chef of the Year for 2012.
We started off with a freshly baked bread with olive oil and pork pate and pickled veal tongue. The pork pate is to die for.

We then ordered a kobe wagyu beef skirt and an 8 hour woodfired pig for our mains with a side of crispy fried brussel sprouts.

By now I feel like I'm in a food comma but I.Just.Need.To.Have.Dessert. We ordered two magnificent desserts. A burnt milk custard with peach and chocolate ice cream.
