Sometimes, it's a good thing to give second chances. Like yesterday, we gave Kith Café another shot, despite a rather underwhelming brunch sometime back. I couldn't quite understand, then, how there were such rave reviews of the food here.
But boy am I glad I gave this homey cafe another go, for dinner this time instead of brunch, because our pastas turned out pretty damn good. The food was rustic, not particularly refined, but they were hearty and executed with finesse. And, the icing on the cake was how affordably cheap the dinner was, resulting in a very value-for-money meal.
We'll definitely be back.
We ordered the daily specials, and loved them both. The Crabmeat Linguine ($22) seasoned with garlic, chilli, cherry tomatoes, kaffir lime, and oodles of shredded sweet crabmeat was wonderfully balanced.
The King Prawn Linguine ($22), also seasoned with garlic, chilli and cherry tomatoes, laid on a bed of peppery rocket leaves was just as balanced. This was generously laden with 3 halves of perfectly cooked, bouncy, juicy grilled prawns.
