Good ambiance + signature comfort food + really good dessert = Kitchen's Best.
From being a hidden resto in Karrivin Plaza along Pasong Tamo, it has become one of the loveliest signature restaurants in BGC. Kitchen's Best certainly knows that the way to the Filipino's heart is not only through yummy main dishes but also via kick-ass desserts. :)

Their desserts have earned accolades over the years, and you'll be safe if you order the award-winning cakes.
The salad serving was good and the veggies were not too tired. It was served with our favorite Asian sesame dressing.
Aidan wanted a burger, so he ordered this eggciting version. He grabbed the burger and ate it like how it's supposed to be eaten -- with his hands and with gusto. :)
The boys loved this primarily because of the egg and the soft Angus beef patty.
Although it was very tender, the meat itself did not have any taste. Not sure if it needs to be marinated longer or slow-cooked for longer hours for the meat to absorb the flavors of the tomato and red wine sauce.
We loved this really soft chicken swimming in olive oil with lots of garlic and onions. Sarap!
...and now, on to dessert!
★ Mango Sansrival (P105/slice +10% service charge). ("Undoubtedly the Best Mango Sansrival Cake" Food Magazine 2001). Four layers of cashew meringue layered with real mango buttercream and freshly sliced mangoes covered with pure buttercream icing. An all-time favorite, which is a sure hit for every occasion!
Joshua adores anything with mango; he especially enjoyed this sansrival version. I love that the cashew meringue layer is more dominating than the icing. It's soft and moist, and before you know it, everything's gone!
Indeed, this continues to be the Best Mango Sansrival Cake in Manila. :)
★ Gateau por mon Pere (Purple Yam Cake +10% service charge) - (P120/slice). (20 Best Desserts for 2011 Awardee by Philippine Daily Inquirer) Gateau por mon Pere, which means cake for my father, is a cake made in honor of the pastry chef's father during his papal awarding. This rich, sumptuous and melt-in-your-mouth, home-made purple yam cake is layered with purple yam mousseline that blankets heavenly chewy and crunchy layers of meringue. A uniquely rich Filipino treat exquisitely prepared and executed not just for our father but your loved ones in mind. A spectacular dessert that's sure to leave a special place in everyone's heart.
This is another winner! It's like sansrival but with layers of ube and ube icing besides the layers of crunchy and chewy meringue. I love this unique Filipino dessert. :)
White Chocolate Macadamia Brittle Cheesecake (P180/slice +10% service charge). (24 Best Desserts Awardee by Philippine Daily Inquirer, 2009) Satiny smooth, melt-in-your-mouth cheesecake swirled in white chocolate atop a macadamia graham crust. Iced with whipped cream and bejeweled with our very own macadamia brittle. This original recipe is a perennial favorite.
We found this a bit too sweet and too rich for our taste. The macadamia crust was not enough to balance out the suya factor. We felt like we were eating a lot of calories in every bite.
Overall, Kitchen's Best is highly recommended, especially after a trip to Mind Museum (just a 5-minute walk away). We love their winning formula of Good Ambiance + Yummy Comfort Food + Kick-Ass Dessert. :) They could improve on the service, though, since the staff was not very attentive.
Parking is directly in front (take note, it easily fills up during lunchtime).
