Food Trip #1: Little Kitchen Restaurant

I’ve heard so much about Little Kitchen Restaurant

And I have been wanting to try them out

This used to be where Batchoy King was

After so many years of dishing out their famous batchoy

They decided to run a quaint restaurant called

Little Kitchen

For starters, we were offered a free basket of toasted garlic bread

It was hard-toasted and tasted buttery than with garlic

Well at least it served its purpose in controlling my hunger

They were generous with their spaghetti with meatballs

It smelled delicious and tasted really good

This one’s truly an Italian dish baked for the Pinoy palate

I also tried their Shrimp Scampi Pizza

This one’s really tasty, oven-cooked to the customers’ delight

The crust is not too thin nor thick and that for me was perfect

I also ordered their Salisbury Steak which came with vegies and rice

This is basically two hamburger patties in generous serving of gravy

Nothing fancy about this viand but I find it passable just the same

This one’s my favorite:  Sizzling Shrimp Scampi in a hot plate

I so loved the overflowing slices of white onion bulbs

And the shrimps were tender and tasted really nice

As for the interiors, I loved its homey ambience and classy decor

The tables were full that time yet service was not hampered

I find the “cramp” atmosphere apt for now

Little Kitchen Restaurant is owned and managed by Dr. Aret Macaranas-Dometita.  It is located along President Quirino Avenue corner Zapote Street.  They serve lunch and dinner, from Monday to Saturday.  You may call them at (083)-303-1586 or email them at [email protected]

  • I am so glad to find The Little Kitchen as the first entry to your new foodtripping blog!

    Truly, I am proud of this little place because it was a challenge to build. The most exciting part was recycling materials from the old Batchoy King. Did you notice the main door frame, the counter and the divider going to the kitchen? hehehe

    As for the food, all I can say is they all go straight to the heart… because Doc Aret cooks from the heart and not for the pocket. hahaha. Very inexpensive, top-class dining, di ba?

    Some of my favorites:

    Shrimp Scampi Pizza
    Any of the Rice Toppings they serve for lunch
    Chicken Cordon Bleu
    Buco Pandan with Lychee
    This Japanese named sandwich… I forgot.
    Buffalo Wings
    Kalbi Chim
    The burger!!
    Lumpiang Fresh
    Bread Pudding
    Baked Potato

    You should try the Baked Bangus and the Bangus Sisig… mapapapikit ka!!!

    Plus, I heard that there are a lot of goodlooking diners there… :-0

  • wow, nice blog …may ma try na naman kami next visit sa gensan sir…

    • let me know kung papunta kayo dito pie ah….

  • We happened to dine at LK for the first time about 2 months ago. The place’s great — it was small, quiet and cozy, yet great because of the good, fairly-priced food. Made us not miss Batchoy King 🙂 Hope though it doesn’t soon get very crowded after the good reviews; because that won’t make it “little” anymore 🙂

    Congrats on your new blog, Kuya Ormz! Winner na naman ito next year! 🙂

    • the place is becoming popular na. sarap naman kasi ng food and hindi gaano kamahalan. i hope the owners resist expanding immediately and just let it flow. they should first assure themselves of a steady flow of LOYAL customers para sigurado…

  • yah ive been hir i must say one of the best gourmet pizza in town

    • i will check out your recommendations soon…

  • sir congrats galing tlga wat cn i say

  • the dishes are mouth watering, im drooling over the foodshots…
