Description: 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.

The only reason I haven't visited this restaurant more often is because I feel loyal to its neighbor directly across: Bistro Baron. And Kitchenette always seems busy, while Bistro not so much. But some day I just couldn't resist any longer, and tried approaching the restaurant in such a way that the staff at Bistro wouldn't notice. I don't think it worked, and how could it? Kitchenette is open to shoppers on three sides.

The menu offers mostly European/Western dishes. I opted for the pesto spaghetti, which was delicious, and the pasta was perfectly al dente. But the sauce was a bit too heavy; a little restraint in that department would have helped.

There are many desserts available, but I forget which one I had, which says a lot. (I don't forget good desserts!)

Good value, and service was good, too.

My friend chose this place and I just went along. I glanced through the menu and didn't see anything I like (which is savoury dish but vegetarian). I called one of the waiters and asked about any vegetarian options. He told us the meat in the Aglio Olio can be substituted with mushrooms. AHA! I'll take that. My order came out as: Ham and Turkey Pasta. I told the waiter, I couldn't eat this. I ordered a vegetarian Aglio Olio. He insisted that that is my order. Another waiter came and apologized. My second order came, and it was Aglio Olio with Shrimp. I'm not sure whats going on, but I had to argued with the waiter AGAIN, that I ordered a vegetarian pasta dish!!!! Long story short, I was not a happy camper.
