Wolf’s Happy Half Birthday Dinner at Kettle Eastwood

When I first decided to blog after giving birth, I didn’t want to write so often about food. However, I now realize that it is inevitable that I will talk about food here, because we LOVE to eat out. As in, not a week goes by that we don’t eat out. It seems a shame if I don’t share our gastronomic adventures!

To celebrate Wolf’s sixth month last June 27, we had dinner at Kettle. Unlike some parents who choose to give their baby’s first solid meal on the exact day that they turn six months, Casey and I have decided to delay solids until Wolf displays all signs of developmental readiness. And so last June 27, he merely watched us feast in his honor. And what a sumptuous feast it was! Kettle is known for serving great comfort food. We ordered the tried and tested bestsellers and were not disappointed. Rich, bold flavors satisfied our palates, and I’m sure Wolf was also delighted with the quality of his evening milk. Haha.

Here are the dishes we ordered:

Baked Brie, P399

There’s no way I wouldn’t have enjoyed this, as brie is my favorite cheese. Sweet creamy indulgence! The greens on the side complemented the richness of the cheese.

Caesar Salad, P289

A hefty serving good for three hungry diners. The shaved egg added a nice twist to the usual Caesar salad.

U.S. Angus Short Ribs, P539

Tender, melt-in-your-mouth meat, although the serving was measly. They should give more to justify the price.

Buttermilk Fried Chicken, P559

Huge juicy chicken thigh fillets fried to perfection, served with honey and gravy. Up to four people can share this wonderful medley of sweet and salty! The cornbread was unfortunately really dry though, a damper to what would have been a perfect dish!

 
Lemon Iced Tea Carafe, P179
I didn’t get to take a picture of the carafe, but it was good for three. The iced tea was too sweet and we needed to dilute it with water. Oh well, at least there was more to go around!

Checkered Cake, P229

This was a combination of red velvet and chocolate cake. It was not too sweet, nor too rich. It’s a good cake for those who don’t want a huge sugar rush and are just looking to end the meal on a sweet note. The slice was huge and good for three.

 

 
THE VERDICT

Peso Damage: P700 / head

Value for Peso: 4.5 / 5.0

Although on the pricey side, Kettle offers comfort food that is a notch above the usual overpriced franchised diner (IHOP, I’m looking at you). The dishes are fun, innovative, and memorable. Servings are good for sharing. This is a great place for casual dining with family. We will definitely be back!
