I don't think I need to add anything more to the praises because the Buttermilk Chicken could very well be the crowning glory of Kettle. It's crunchy, it looks good, and it has that sweet mildly spicy goodness that is hard to find in any of the run-of-the-mill fried chickens around.
The serving is quite gracious and its cornbread large and complements the chicken well. Even with my appetite, we had more than enough for take home.
But of course, I had to try out what else was available that would actually go well with this particular dish. Based off the menu description, the Truffle Gorgonzola Pasta sounded good.
And it was. Though it may look simple enough but the Gorgonzola has that strong and creamy taste that embraces the pasta perfectly.
Kettle's interior is homey enough, the seats are quite comfortable, and nothing really screams of intimidation. The servers smile often and more importantly, are always attentive.
If there's anything I didn't like about Kettle, it's that they served the coffee with sugar in packets, which for me can cheapen any dining establishment easily. It's not that big a deal really but having sugar in a bowl changes a lot.
What's certain though is that I'll be back for more Buttermilk Chicken and another pasta dish.
Kettle is at the 5th level of the East Wing of Shangri-La Plaza. It is open Monday to Sunday 11:30 am to 9:30 pm.
