We heard stories about this cafe that was a "Mad Men" kind of hangout for ad agency folks in Makati. It's a homey hole-in-the-wall hidden at the back of Sunvar Plaza in Makati Cinema Square.
We wanted to swing by Kitch' Café after our Sunday mass in Don Bosco Makati but we were surprised that it was closed. It would have been perfect for a nice Sunday family lunch after mass.
Months went by, and we almost forgot about Kitch Cafe until we had to go to Makati Cinema Square on a weekday.
Finally, we were able to try it...
It is not easy to find the cafe, which is located at the back of Sunvar Plaza. You have to enter a small eskenita right before the Makati ramp going to the Skyway on the corner of Amorsolo St. and Pasay Road
From the outside, it looks like a trying-hard-internet-cafe-that-serves-food. If you didn't know what it was, you probably wouldn't even take a second glance at it if you happened to pass by this place.
We ordered the popular Kamikaze Salad, which was interestingly served in a jar.

This is one of the restaurant's popular signature pasta dishes by Chef Eugene Raymundo.
I loved its creaminess with the flavor of adobo in the meat and in the sauce. We also appreciated the crispy garlic bits that complemented the adobo.
We did not like this that much because we are not used to eating watery callos. But we still finished it because the flavor was good.
I'm not sure if the cafe's just saving on cost that's why it is watery or the recipe really calls for it.
We liked the texture and flavors of this sandwich. We would prefer it with less butter, though.
This was recommended among the creme brulee options, but the flavor was a bit too mild and the consistency was not that creamy.
Although the cookies were good, we thought they could use some more macadamia nuts and white chocolate.
Some of the flavors are a bit bitin and diluted. If they're scrimping on ingredients because of the cost, they have to be aware that that also dilutes the overall foodie experience. :(
For those who have tried it, what's your favorite food in Kitch' Café?

Live an Awesome Life,
Full Disclosure: Nothing to disclose. We paid for our meals. We are not connected with the restaurant and any organization promoting it.
P.S. Parking is a big problem during lunchtime and a bit of a hassle because you have to park in the basement of Makati Cinema Square. Parking is better at night when they allow parking in front of the restaurant.
