Potts Point Bayside
Potts Point is a new restaurant that opened recently at SM Mall of Asia. Their name is inspired from an actual place at Australia and they aim to serve organic and healthy dishes.
It was interesting to browse through their menu as most of the items had “organic” as their description and as much as possible, they have itemized the main ingredients of their dishes so they have long menu item names.
We started our meal by trying all three of their available soups.
My favorite was the one with the longest name; the Roasted Organic Butternut Squash Soup with Organic Bacon, and Cream Cheese Ravioli or simply the squash soup. I found the first two bland for my taste. On the other hand, aside from the squash’s natural taste; it had crunchy bacon bits and a chewy ravioli that sunk in the soup.
As for our appetizers, we had mussels. I only managed to eat a few because after introducing this to my bro; his plate was full of empty shells a few minutes later.
My initial reaction upon seeing the dishes would be: big plates but small servings (except for the roasted pork belly). I’m glad I wasn’t very hungry upon coming here else I’ll be asking for more!
Pasta and Risotto
The teriyaki sauce adds sweetness to the fresh feeling of the salmon while the risotto flavor was bland. You have to mix them together to appreciate it.
My first question was.. where’s the lamb? I was expecting chunks of lamb as toppings but maybe that was asking for too much? Instead, you get bits of lamb concealed over a “light” Bolognese pasta.
Among all the dishes available, only the roast pork was abundant in serving size especially on the rice portion. The pork was fork-tender with a crunchy skin that’s good with its sour dip. When paired with their pineapple rice, you get a nice sweet and sour feeling!
A second salmon dish but cooked differently. Loved how fresh (did I say use the same adjective again?) and juicy it was.
In the end, I was the only one rubbing my full tummy as I was the one who had the roast pork. Potts Points serves delicious food but it makes me wonder if organic should really be expensive? If I were to recommend a dish, I’d pick the roast pork.
PS: We would have wanted to order their Australian Angus Rib Eye steak but unfortunately it wasn’t available that time.
Till next time,
