We had dinner with some high school friends at Angel’s Kitchen along Connecticutt St. last Feb. 2, 2010.
After you order, you will be served a small bowl of melba toast with chicken liver pate (pictured above) on the side. This has got to be one of the yummiest complimentary appetizers we’ve ever had since the chicken liver pate presents a lovely medley of textures and flavors.
Hubby and I decided to order Waldorf Salad in Honey Calamansi Vinaigrette (P278, pictured above) for starters. Got to give Angel’s Kitchen a thumbs up for service — when the salad came out it was already split into two smaller plates so we wouldn’t have to pick on it in the middle of the table. It had apple slices, candied nuts, and herbed boursin cheese tossed with lettuce. The honey calamansi vinaigrette was heavenly… light, citrusy, and at the same time sweet. Needless to say I finished every single leaf of my salad.
From the name Angel’s Kitchen you’d expect the usual café dishes like pasta and sandwiches. Although they also have those, there are pretty unexpected delicious Asian dishes like this Kimchi Rice with Beef Bulgogi (P398, pictured above) which I ordered. It was a pretty big serving and it was so yummy. It was served with the most delicious chili sauce in case it’s still not spicy enough for you.
Meanwhile, hubby ordered Crispy Steamed John Dory Fish Fillet (P378, pictured above) which is one of Angel’s Kitchen’s signature dishes. The fish steamed to tender and juicy perfection on the inside and yet crispy fried on the outside. It is topped with leeks, asparagus, and shitake mushrooms. We never thought it was possible for fished to be steamed and fried at the same time. Delicious!
