KETTLE is a casual restaurant in the East Wing of Shangri-la Mall offering the yummiest comfort food by Chef Chiloy Santos. Its name is inspired by the classic kitchen container, symbolic of the resto being a “holder” for the different comfort food favorites from the 4 families that own the resto — Santos, Tenchavez, Meer and Tanjangco family.
These are the same families behind the successful Meat Plus in Subic, Tender Bob’s, and the newly opened Chef Samurai Japanese Resto (also in Subic).
Foodies have been raving about the Buttermilk Fried Chicken. Here are our other suggestions on what to order…
SOUPS & APPETIZERS
The pumpkin soup was good, with a thick consistency. You have to eat it fast though, because it gets cold quickly.
We grew up loving clam chowder on a carved sourdough bread bowl just like this. Creamy and good while hot.
If you were to order an appetizer, make sure to order this. It’s like strips of chicharon with crispy fries and cheese on top.
The salad combinations are simple, and the greens aren’t as fresh as I would have liked. Just OK.
You can order this salad with salmon for complete, healthy meal.
This burger was quite big and served with sweet potato fries.
A bit hard to explain blogging as a profession, mainly because it’s quite unusual not to have a fixed office space.
This one was just OK. The shrimp is fried with mustard sauce.
Kettle’s Grilled Cheese version of an American comfort food favorite. It would have been nice to have a more grilled flavor in the bread. I can still remember how good this Grilled Cheese was.
This one has just the right amount of creaminess, cheesiness, and truffle flavor.
I love this Adobo version with tender lamb meat soaked in the adobo sauce, paired with brown rice with truffle and mushroom flavors.
This is big enough for sharing for a group of 4-6 people. It’s a good chunk of meat with little fat on the sides, cooked medium or medium-well for the best flavor.
As they say, eating Bone Marrow is healthy!
But the star of Kettle is the crunchy fried chicken cooked in buttermilk, Southern-style…
For the health conscious, best to order this rosemary natural Chicken, cooked with herbs and garlic.
It’s a good wine to pair with the dishes and add a little spice to your dining experience.
Grape Variety: 100% Torrontes
Tasting Notes: Yellow colour with greenish nuances. Very intense aroma of fresh grapes, flower perfume and mature peaches. Fresh in the mouth. Light and easy to drink. Ideal with seafood, Thai and Chinese food.
Vineyard: Salta, Argentina
You can also try the different iced teas. Go for the refreshing Green Iced Tea with cucumber.
The mango shake tasted artificial. 🙁
Love this pineapple cake — not too sweet and just the right combination of flavors.
Light and soft caramel cake. 🙂
This was just OK. I don’t really appreciate desserts with cream topping.
A simple yet quite unique cake — alternating box layers of chocolate chifon and red velvet. 🙂
This pistachio cake was good, too! 🙂
Never really enjoyed trifle cakes that much.
Overall, we love Kettle for its extensive selection of yummy comfort food. 🙂
Don’t forget to order the Pork & Potato Strips, Australian Lamb Adobo, Buttermilk Fried Chicken, and Checkered Cake.
For drinks, skip the tea and fruit shakes and just order a glass of Altas Cumbres Torrontes.
Budget is about P800/head.
