Nothing Like Comfort Food in Kettle

Feels like forever since my last food review! Probably because I've been to lazy to bring the camera with me everywhere I go. Anyway, I was so happy when I finally got to try Kettle at SM Aura! I've been hearing tons about this place because of their buttermilk chicken but my family's never gotten around to trying it because Taguig is far from where I live. Read on for the full review!


The interior of Kettle is really cozy - a mix of modern touches and details reminiscent of an old American diner. It was so perfect for the comfort food that they served!



Sadly, we came on a Sunday and did not get to try the Spicy version of the Buttermilk Chicken. We were definitely not disappointed with the food though!

Kettle House Salad (PHP339) - The mix of bacon and candied nuts made this dish more indulgent but I really loved the balance of the fancy grated cheeses and homemade vinaigrette! Great start to the meal.

Smoked Salmon Salad (PHP259) - I found this salad to be more fresh-tasting, probably because it had more classic salad components. Again, you can't go wrong with smoked salmon and mixed greens. It tasted so good that it kind of took centerstage in this dish. Delicious with the dill dressing!

Truffle Gorgonzola Pasta (PHP289) - Another rich dish that I loved. Ugh. Even though it didn't taste like anything I haven't had before, it tasted so good! Delicious subtle notes of truffles with the unique flavor of gorgonzola. It was creamy and sinful and I want to have it again.

Australian Lamb Adobo (PHP449) - Lamb is one of my favorites and this dish by Kettle only reinforced this. It didn't exactly taste like classic Adobo which I felt was a good thing. It was tangy and juicy, and the flavored rice was a match made in heaven with the lamb.

Mac and Four Cheese (PHP269) - A super fancy approach to the classic Mac N Cheese. Suddenly, a lot sophistication blends in with a classic dish. The "cheese" part had a lot of depth that really defines the dish as the ultimate comfort food.

Miso Glazed Salmon (PHP559) - I was a bit disappointed with this one not because it didn't taste good but because it tasted really ordinary. Definitely the prettiest dish of the lot, but the noodles lacked flavor. Without the Mango Cilantro Salsa on top, this wouldn't taste like anything. I liked it though but it just felt like something's missing. :(

Buttermilk Fried Chicken (PHP519) - Now for the most awaited dish! I've been hearing all my favorite bloggers rant about this and I have to say that it lived up to all my expectations. It's served with a chili honey dip, homemade gravy, and honey jalapeno cornbread. SO PERFECT. The chicken itself is tender and flavorful. Definitely a must-try dish!

Quickly summing it up, I really loved the food at Kettle. It has all these revamped classic comfort food that you can't help but love! So. Good.

Kettle is located at 5F of SM Aura, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

  5. Very nice looking like all the other restaurants in SM Aura, but also just as pricey. Definitely only for special occasions for me or my family. We are not really foodies.

  13. The buttermilk fried chicken looks really good! But your photos are a little on the dark side, is it because of your colour editing or is it the real lighting? Want to try the kettle house salad too~
