I honestly don’t know how you can watch your weight in the Philippines when the food is so good! In Manila, aside from going to historical and cultural sites, I’m pretty sure you will drop by the malls. They’re hard to miss. And if you find yourself in Shangri-la Mall or SM Aura, I highly recommend you find a seat in Kettle.
They’re almost always packed! This was during the holiday season and I thought lots were vacationing outside the city — I guess not.
We didn’t know what to order but while we were standing around waiting for our table, we were scouting at other diners’ tables. 😛
For starters, we ordered the Kettle House Salad and Pork & Potato Strips. I love the salad and the berry balsamic dressing tasted very Asian. I should have asked if I can buy the dressing! The Pork & Potato Strips? I could eat it as a snack and never get tired of it! Ang sarap! The cheese? The pork? Why is it so good and so fattening at the same time?!

For the main course, we had the short ribs, mac & four cheese (for Rafa), and buttermilk fried chicken.
Topnotch food I tell yah! I want to go back!
