If I were to build a house, the most important room would be the kitchen. Considered the heart of the home, nothing but good stuff must emanate from it. Which is exactly my impression of Kitchen in Greenbelt 3. Several visits down and still, everything we’ve tried has been nothing short of satisfying.
The setting can be dramatic with it’s subdued lighting, brick walls and steel tables. But the effect is that you get to focus on the food. The dishes provide that splash of color. And rightly so. It is the reason you’re there after all.
As a first tribute, we’ll focus on one of our favorites. They call this dish On Barbie’s Cue (Php240), a play on your normal barbecue – as well as a play on your taste buds. It’s a skewered collection of seafood and meat like shrimp, squid, chicken and sausage, covered in a light pesto-ish sauce. We like the heartiness of the different flavors against the pandan-flavored rice it’s served with. Good enough for two, it allows you to try this against other dishes.
We paired this with an appetizer platter called the Huge Peak (Php225). Not sure where the peak comes in but it was quite a serving of seared tuna, buffalo wings, and mozzarella cheese. It came with some greens but I think we ignored that part to make way for the good stuff. The tuna was like Japanese sashimi. The buffalo wings had a decent amount of zing to it. And we never shun anything cheesy!
Mint sprigs are added to add some freshness to your service water but you can also opt for some iced tea. It tastes like pandan and will remind you of gulaman! If you’re looking for soup, you can can try the I Say Tomato, You Say Tomato soup. Request for some queso de bola to add to it. J Try exploring their menu and take your pick from all the playfully-names dishes they offer.
It’s one of the restaurants that you can never go wrong with at any time of the day.
Kitchen can be located at the ground floor of Greenbelt 3 in Makati City. You can also get in touch with them at 02 757 4565 to 66.
