we had a 15pax dinner at kith cafe @ park mall on 30.6.2015. kith does all day breakfast (till 5pm) and seems like a good coffee place too.
i didn’t know if kith meant anything in particular, but after googling i found out that kith was like kin or kindred or –
acquaintances, friends, neighbors, or the like; persons living in thesame general locality and forming a more or less cohesive group
a cafe for friends – good name!
we ordered some calamari & 2 pizza to share, and each ordered our own pasta dish.
calamari was good. squid was very slightly tough, batter was good.
gong bao chicken pizza was better than i expected. we all liked the thin crust pizza. no sticky sauce, taste was not too sweet & combined quite well with the pizza.
parma ham pizza was competent also. pretty ok.
pizza not particularly my favourite but it is an excellent dish for communal dining & i do enjoy a slice of good pizza (i shared 1/2 gong bao chicken & 1/2 parma ham pizza with a friend) to start the dinner.
the spaghetti alio olio was good!
good helping, very flavourful, good garlic flavours & lots of shiitake mushrooms. I shared 1/2 of it with a friend who shared 1/2 of my squid ink pasta. not a usual dish i would order as i like meat or seafood.
the linguine gamberini (garlic prawn) looked good. i will order that next time.
carbonara. looked ok. somehow looked a bit like hokkien mee. egg was mixed in the pasta. i think it would taste good as most pasta here were good. though i am more used to the look/colour of carbonara at alfresco gusto
i had a try of the bolognese, and the tomato sauce was good. meat sauce/ragout preparation not my favourite but this was good.
did not try the vongole. it looked fine.
they said vongole is a test of italian chef. the lala (littleneck) clams have a distinctive shellfish taste & if the linguine is done al dente the combination is quite excellent. my own vongole linguine here.
the veal spinach tortellini looked interesting.
& looked yummy! i must try that next time.
my friend the proprietor ordered the day’s special, a squid ink spaghetti with seafood alio olio.
i tasted. it was good.
i liked my own squid ink sauce pasta better though. it was more intense & flavourful, though my immediate reaction was it was a bit salty. my own squid ink seafood spaghetti here.
the friend who shared 1/2 my squid ink thought it was very salty, and that the alio olio was also salty. i was good with the alio olio, & salt does bring out the flavours (though too much would kill it).
my friend the proprietor ordered 2 more pizza – a duck & mushroom ragout & a special – with sausage.
duck ragout was good & had some meat pieces. i liked the sausage special pizza a bit more, sausage very flavourful.
it was really enjoyable evening. company was super fun, outdoor ambience was cool & nice open space, & food was great. i will probably come back with my family.
