Kitchen in Greenbelt 3 has been around for ages, but I somehow always overlook it despite having eaten good food there before. It took a deal offer on Pakyaw, a local deal shopping site, for the restaurant to get my attention again. And fortunately so, because Kitchen offers a wide selection of interesting dishes which would require repeat visits to fully give justice to the restaurant’s repertoire.
The deal offered a choice between the Knot of Four Pizza and the Skewers Place, accompanied by two bottomless glasses of iced tea. Since I purchased two vouchers, we decided to try both pizza flavors. Kitchen’s Pizzas are thin and oval-shaped. Instead of the usual triangular slices, these were sliced into 2 to 3-inch thick strips.
The Knot of Four features four types of cheese and is served with alfalfa sprouts and arugula. Perfect for rolling ala panizza. I’ve always been a fan of panizzas—the nutty bitterness that arugula adds to pizza is nothing short of magical so this was a win in my book. It would’ve been nice to have a bit of chili oil to drizzle in the roll though, instead of hot sauce.
The other pizza we had was Skewers Place, a chicken barbecue pizza topped with three cheeses and some alfalfa sprouts. I don’t know if it’s meant to be rolled, but I rolled it anyway. I’m such a rebel. *rolls eyes* The barbecue sauce used on the chicken was a bit on the sweet side, giving the whole pizza a light but overpowering sweetness. Probably not something I’d order again, as I prefer my chicken barbecue pizzas more smokey than sweet.
The iced tea we were offered was either the Cool It (Mint Iced Tea) or the Leaves of Grass (Pandan Iced Tea). Light and very refreshing, the pandan shone through in Leaves of Grass, giving the tea a pleasantly mellow fragrance. The Cool It was quite refreshing as well, with the chilly mint making it presence known in every sip. And here I thought we’d be getting a glass of sugary diluted iced tea powder.
Overall, Kitchen is a wonderful place to explore. Its interesting interiors and diffused lighting create a relaxing ambiance that soothes without making you sleepy. Plus, the wide array of wittily named dishes presents endless dining options for different cravings. It’s good to know that there are still reasonably priced restaurants with scores well in the ambiance and food departments in Greenbelt 3.
