When I first met Jackie and Buen, I was immediately introduced to 30 Kitchen + Bar at our first lunch out together. Then it was followed almost every week and progressed from once to twice a week. I decided that a review is in order.
Why we love them? Two things: (1) you get your money’s worth and (2) you leave 30 Kitchen with a full belly.
Due to our frequent lunch visits and cravings, I decided to share the reason why we kept coming back to 30 Kitchen + Bar.
30 Kitchen knows the way to the Meatlover’s heart and satisfy a sweet tooth. They have unforgettable heavenly French toasts–which we doubled as appetizers whenever we dine. My favorite picks so far are: Chicken Caesar Panini, creamy Chicken Pesto Pasta and any Nutella-related French toast.
Here are some snapshots I got for the dishes we praised and tried.
|Bacon, Mushroom and Cheese Quesadillas|
|Belly Crunch. The strips of battered bacon cut pork belly with your choice of 3 sauces: asian (hot)/tangy (mild)/ barbecue.|
|Herb Crusted Chicken. Breaded fillet with white mushroom sauce.
|‘Coz there is pasta for every move. Chicken Pesto Pasta – chicken strips in creamy pesto sauce.|
|Bacon Mushroom Melt Panini with bacon, mushrooms and cheese sauce and homemade potato chips.|
|BBLT–So much BACON they have to say it twice!|
French Toast Specialties:
|Nutella, Banana and Cream with Vanilla ice cream on top|
|Apple-Cinnamon, Caramel and Cream with Vanilla ice cream on top|

According to Buen, 30 Kitchen + Bar used to be in Paradise Village in Banilad but they’ve transferred to The Gallery in Mabolo, which is a good move. They have a black and white theme for their furniture with a minimalism touch. A perfect place to relax, grab a quick grub or have drinks with friends.
