Lately, I’ve come to discover the hustle and bustle of restaurants and cafes opening along the Kapitolyo area. Dropped by this quaint coffee shop named Kitchen Diaries Café along First Street located in Pasig City. Opened its doors last August with a neighborhood cafe concept in mind. So it’s not only for those who live around the vicinity that would want a sweet dessert with their coffee or breakfast all-day meal in the middle of the day but also aspire their customers to experience and share stories.
The Kitchen Diaries Café, also has a nickname, which is KiD, a shortened version of the restaurant’s name. Very true to their sweet nickname, KiD offers a list of ranging from desserts, all-day breakfast meals to interesting hot and cold coffee concoctions.
Once stepped into the cafe, I was endeared with all these pretty interiors and decor. KiD wanted to have this feel to their shop as if it were a place one can call it a momentary sweet escape from the everyday routine of school or work wherein you can unwind and feel like a kid as you enjoy some known childhood sweet treats.
We were welcomed by the owners along with this massive table of lovely sweets arranged for us to try.
But first, let’s begin with some starters.
Buffalo Wings with Nachos. Never thought they’d make a combo as such. They actually go very well, what we liked about this was the sauce. Which is a secret recipe they cannot disclose. 😉
Next were their rice bowls, Mongolian stir fry and their Mexican stir fry. If you prefer your meal a bit spicy, try the Mexican bowl.
Their bestseller the Roasted Angus Corned Beef, paired with English Style Scrambled Eggs and Fried Rice is a must try from their all-day breakfast menu.
Now onto dessert!
Their No Bake Blueberry Cheesecake was a surprise, it wasn’t overwhelmingly rich it just gave the right texture and it was light to the bite.
Their other coffee concoctions served were Frozen Espresso shots and the coffee shake, this one was the Nutella Ferrerro Frappe. Yes. Nutella. 😉
A favorite drink of the young and the young at heart, the Milo Bomb.
And their specialty the Frozen KiD, coffee iced cubes separately served with another glass of milk and a spoon of whipped cream for a sweeter thought you can measure or not. 😉 Presentation wise, this wins for me. I’ve been pouring myself with all these Pinterest pretty photos of coffee iced cubes and a tall glass of milk for quite sometime. KiD made my wish come true. Definitely, sweet dreams are made of these. Haha.
