An Edible U-Turn at U. Kitchen

It was indeed a delicious U turn for us friends while sharing a good laugh and great food. The food is given per course from appetizers to soups down to the main menu. 
If you are fond of Filipino cuisines served in premium style, then u. kitchen is your option. Although the restaurant serves a fusion of oriental and western dishes, they aim to please the palate of locals.

And while you are waiting for the food to be served, a complimentary pandan tea is supplied for the paying guests and patrons.

The place is best describe as a dainty restaurant.

It is spacious and even has a separate venue for meetings and seminars

The ambiance is favorable and pleasing to the eye.

Their decors speak of kitchen utensils but the "u" is derived from the first letter of the owner's surname which is Urbina.

You have to try their lumpiang ubod in crispy cups. a distinctive taste and a different touch of the usual lumpia wrapper.

also a must try is their laksa berde which is inherent to a singaporean/malay dish

The Paella de Verdura was not how I expected it to be but still it was tasty. It has shells, chorizo bilbao, veggies and other toppings.

The fried pugo which can serve up to 3 persons was delectable but because of the small bones of the bird, you really have to be careful while eating.

For dessert, indulge on their guinomis sorbet. Although it's quiet expensive for a meager serving.
