Some time back, a group of friends decided to check out a newly opened restaurant called the Kitchen Creatures… and I was one of them to storm the place for the 1st time! Such a perky name, methinks. It was opened approximately 2 months ago – fairly new 🙂
Loved how notepaper-ish their menu resembled
Heck, it was really catchy too! Try reading it when you get there
I took a liking to their concept of a No Frills Dining. Nothing too fancy-pancy, yet delivers the bare necessities every hungry person yearns for. Food at no extra cost. This means, you’re only paying for your meals – NO GOVERNMENT TAXES, NO SERVICE CHARGES AND ETCETERA.
But tipping is certainly welcome! 🙂
The restaurant owner explaining to us what we’re in for
And his brother, looking very vexed as he tries to avoid any camera that points his way
We mingled around for a bit and took pretty pictures of the cosy and home-like outlet. Heck, there was even a Spiderman poster all framed up against the brick wall! And a chalkboard hung from the top.. pretty old skool ey!
The first appetizer came – it was Stuffed Mushrooms on the house specially for us! Such sweethearts, no? 🙂 Perhaps it’s their method of a warm welcome. We were given plenty of these.
Was warm and juicy!
After skimming through all the food in the menu, I placed my dime upon the Carbonara Spaghetti. A personal favorite since childhood. And lookie here! A reasonably portioned plate of pasta of my choice arrived quite quickly with a couple of mussels and fresh shrimps too!
Certainly exceeding my expectations for the price that comes with it!
Apart from the Carbonara Spaghetti, there were many variants of our favorite pasta. Someone else at the table ordered Oglio Olio, which came with succulent shrimps as well.
Pretty soon, more yummy delights came a-knocking at our gastronomic gates! Similarly, the pizza was also specially made by Kitchen Creatures just for us. Soft melted cheese baked with a crunchy base no one could resist! They had a few toppings that came along with it too.
The other main courses that the rest ordered came in a jiffy too. The Monster Platter consisting of fried shrimp, calamari rings, mushrooms, fried chicken wings and nachos was a real combo! You certainly will not expect this for the price you’re forking out… more than what you bargained for!
Clockwise : Sirloin Steak, Monsterized Burger, Monster Platter and Bolognese Spaghetti
Here’s a clearer photograph of the Monsterized Burger. It sure looked good but unfortunately I didn’t take a bite then. Now, this comes next on my list the next time I patronize Kitchen Creatures!
I liked how the Chicken and Mushroom Pie came in such bite-sized pieces! There was mash potatoes accompanying it too. Being a huge fan of pastries, I must say that these babies were relatively fulfilling 😀 Kudos!
All carnivores, raise yer hands!
Can’t exactly remember what this was or who ordered it… but it looks pretty satisfying to me!
A good mixture of meat, veggies and pasta 🙂
After all that warm good meaty aftertaste, it’s good to flush them all down with some ice-cold drinks. Check out the Slimey George! It’s a mixture of Sprite + Ribena + Lemon. Mocktail much? 😀 The color that accompanied that concoction was really interesting too
On my end, I ordered a real fizzy float with ice-cream!
Loved it <3
And that’s not all! Someone else ordered soup, and it arrived in due time as well. What a huge plate! It looks thick and rich, reminds me of beef stew! The noms 😀
Soup’s never complete without a couple of garlic bread aye?
Simple but sinfully good as all toasted garlic breads are 😀
We’re doing good so far! No complaints at all. Very good and quick service, witty staff, reasonably delicious food but most importantly, WORTH EVERY PENNY YOU’RE PAYING FOR!
Happy faces signifies a happy meal 😀
Check out Rames’ face in the photo below! Imagine the glimmer in his eyes when more pizza came our way 😛 Whooops! Gotcha right there! 🙂 Or… were u looking at something else? *wiggles eyebrow*
Was nice of Ellie to ask me out for this too! 🙂
Check out Jason’s face as he munches through his Monsterized Burger!
All in all, it was a very pleasant dining experience! I would certainly recommend this to anyone planning to indulge in good food without having to make your wallets echo the next day. Perfect for a simple meal and even more perfect for that huge gathering of friends!
Come grab some cheeeeze yo 😀
