Exploring the streets of Melbourne, you find many hidden gems in many laneways. People are always on a hunt for an undiscovered restaurant and in Portello Rosso, they may just have found it. A petite restaurant located off Little Bourke Street, this tapas and Jamón restaurant prides itself on honest and passionate interpretations of the Spanish way of dining and drinking. It has a modern feel with wooden furniture, polished cement floors and warm, mood lighting. The extensive menu allows you to pick from a variety of fresh share plates. The experience begins with the Aceitunas – (warm black olives) - a great way to start off a meal, light and fresh. The Empanada of spiced wagyu, pinenuts and sage over tomato & cardamom ketchup is just melt in your mouth perfect! The Panceta de Cerdo - crispy skinned pork belly over almond and garlic puree is to die for, making you more excited for what’s going to come out next. The Migas de Pato - Warm Salad of shredded confit duck leg, speck, tomato, Spanish onion, fresh herbs and croutons and the Patatas Bravas – Crispy potato dusted in sweet smoked paprika with spiced tomato sauce & aioli would just leave an explosion of flavours in your mouth with each and every bite. Also the Charcuterie Plate - selection of imported & house made salamis, jamon & charcuteria delights with cornichons, Spanish caperberries and bread really tops off an amazing meal. But of course dessert, the Chocolate Churros can never go wrong, and Portello Ross surely knows how to serve up this classic with aplomb. Definitely a hidden gem.
