Entering Porterhouse by Laris, which is located in the California Tower of LKF, one will notice the modern and elegant interior blended with al fresco seating and a contemporary dining area. Their reinterpretation of a classic steakhouse has brought a full list of international cuisines as well as a hand-crafted wine list.

Aside from offering  their staple lunch, they also offer weekend brunch and dinner. We are welcomed to a wine & dine workshop hosted by celebrity Chef David Laris to savour some of his best dishes.

We are seated in front of the communal table that is set with a live seafood bar and a temporary cooking station.

Things start off with everyone’s favourite, crab meat and avocado terrine. It is served aside lemongrass scented gazpacho, which is basically a cold soup blended with red capsicum, herbs and olive oil.

A spoonful of foie gras is technically crafted with delicate layers of rhubarb jello and strawberry puree.

This is followed by a highlight dish, the steak tartare. The beef short loin is slightly charcoal grilled and chopped finely to be mixed with a list of classic seasonings including Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, brined capers, anchovies for saltiness and Tabasco for some heat. The plating impresses everyone with the addition of a poached quail egg.

Finally, our workshop is finished off with an excellent sweet pudding. The toffee brandy sauce is so sticky and delicious, and I absolutely love the bits and pieces of prune that add a superb texture to the fluffy cake. It is a true masterpiece!
