Kitch Cafe Revisited

I logged-in early for work today so I would be able to use the 500-peso voucher I got from Kitch Cafe for attending a blogger's event last April. A fifteen minute walk from the office is all I need to get there. I was really hungry when I went there to make sure to savor the food that I'll be trying. I carry my camera with me to practice taking pictures of food at a different lighting situation.

Cozy interiors

I got there and the staff were quite surprised to see me. I didn't noticed that they greeted me when I went in. I just said table for one over there (I pointed where I wanted to seat). One of the staff gave me the menu for me to pick-out what to eat. To my surprise, the one's that I wanted to try were already phased-out. That includes the Honey Tamarind Baby Back Ribs with Herbed Corn Bread and Chili Chicken Chowder to name a few. It took me a while to think what to eat.

A different angle

While thinking, I got myself an apple-pear juice (60 pesos) which tastes really good because I wanted to shy away from the usual iced tea or lemonade type of drink.

After some thought, I first ordered The Lemon Crusted Cream Dory with Mustard-Aioli Sauce (140 pesos). The fish was crunchy on the outside, but soft and tender on the inside. Its vegetable sidings has hint of honey-wasabi vinaigrette that really made the difference. I was surprised that I ordered the main course first before getting the soup and salad XD.

The next that I ordered was the Kamikaze Salad (100 pesos). The salad was composed of kani, lettuce, mangoes honey-wasabi vinaigrette and other components I forgot XD. The salad was really refreshing as the vinaigrette really carried the salad plus the fact that I liked wasabi at times.

Third that was served was the Seafood Chowder (100 pesos). As a big lover of seafood chowder, I wanted mine not too thick. The one I got was close to being too think plus it tasted somewhat fishy. There were shells included in the soup like small clams and mussels but I still enjoyed my soup if I was able to add a dash of salt and pepper.

Still feeling hungry, I got A Pesto Cream Pasta with Grilled Rosemary Chicken (220 pesos). That was the most expensive dish that I got but it didn't justify its worth. Its not that it didn't taste good. It tasted good but the presentation and taste were way too common. But I think my wife would love it since she is a lover of pesto pasta dishes.

Last but not the least I got the Chocolate Lava ala Mode (180 pesos). It was perfect way to end a meal as the chocolate was simply pure and sinfully sweet. I'm not sure with the other on that complements the cake. Was it ice cream or not? I could say its cream but I might be wrong XD.

My tab went as high as almost 900 pesos but thanks to my voucher, I paid only less than half plus I bought some cookies for my wife. I really enjoyed my lunch but I was hoping that my wife would join me soon in our foodtrips soon.
