Kitchenette Restaurant & Crêperie is a heart-warming concept from Ismaya Group, where you are the heart and soul of our kitchen. Kitchenette is now open to serve you home-cooked goodness, great coffee, and various fresh off-the-kitchen comfort foods.

The basic premise behind Kitchenette’s concept is to create a social space, in form of a restaurant/café that portrays the experience of dining inside a kitchen of a friend whose family members love to cook.

The design of the space is full of kitchen cabinet, kitchen equipments, and kitchen accessories, integrated with a bit of ‘structured messiness’. The space is also cozy, ‘homey’, and casual. It portrays the friendly atmosphere that you feel when entering a friend’s house/kitchen. This concept works throughout the day – from brunch and all throughout lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, to late night social drinks.

vietnamese fried spring rolls, minced chicken, carrot, jicama & chilli vinegar sauce

it’s a really good to start your meal with a delicious starter. for example, this spring rolls. always prefer fried spring rolls than the steamed one. it was also very generous fillings. the minced chicken mixed exquisitely with the vegetables.

Pachyrhizus erosus, commonly known as jicama, Mexican yam bean, or Mexican turnip, is the name of a native Mexican vine, although the name most commonly refers to the plant’s edible tuberous root.

tokyo style tater tots with togarashi spice, japanese mayo, roasted seaweed & sesame

potato is always good for side dish. you named it. potato wedges, french fries, mashed potato, even this tater tots. this tater tots were also good to start this Christmas feast. soft texture with delicious flavour.

Tater tots are a side dish made from deep-fried, grated potatoes. They are widely recognized by their crispness and cylindrical shape. “Tater Tots” is a registered trademark of Ore-Ida that is often used as a generic term.

Tōgarashi (唐辛子) is Japanese for genus Capsicum, or specifically the species Capsicum annuum, and commonly translated as chili pepper.

“little saigon” grilled pork chop platter with side of vietnamese spring roll, fried egg, cha gio dressing & jasmine rice

the pork chop was well-seasoned, but it’s too dry for me. good thing, it’s tender, just not as juicy as i hoped. the jasmine rice was fragrant and great texture. good combination with the pork chop. and fried egg was always good.
