I have resided in Makati for more or less my entire existence but I am bemused by how I found this charming café just now. Kitch’ Café, probably short for kitchen or kitschy, was all sorts of wonderful. It was like a hidden treasure buried in the city’s hustle and bustle.
From the exterior, it flaunted nothing out of the ordinary. Nevertheless, once you step in, you’ll be welcomed by pretty pastel furnishings, delightful decorations and a friendly atmosphere that feels like home.
Lemongrass Iced Tea (P60) – It was revitalizing and natural-tasting, not your usual iced tea drink.
Kamikaze Salad/ Mixed greens, cucumber, kani and ripe mangoes with honey wasabi vinaigrette (P150) – As their bestselling salad, this did not disappoint. The honey wasabi vinaigrette raised a fresh, new flavor to the typical salad dressings offered. Plus points for the quirky idea of serving it in a jar!
Adobo Cream Sauce Pasta (P220) – The creaminess of the sauce was spot on and the portions of chicken adobo were tender and tasty. I also loved the crunchy garlic bits atop the pasta although I thought the serving was quite bitin… or maybe that’s because Gabby ate lots of it. Lol just kidding, Bb! :D
Kitch Beef Tapa with Salted Egg and Tomato (P160) – The appetizing beef reminded me a bit of honey cured bacon. With salted eggs, tomatoes, rice and vinegar, what could go wrong?
Chocolate Lava ala Mode (P180) – Heated chocolate cake oozing out with more chocolaty goodness, striped with strawberry and (Gasp!) more chocolate syrup. A big scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side complemented it perfectly.
On the whole, Kitch’ Café is a great restaurant that Gabby and I are glad to have discovered. It is a picturesque place to relax and spend quality time with your nearest and dearest. Serving good comfort food on the dot, we will surely be back to try their other offers.
