Do you prefer roasted chicken and a nice, juicy, tender Beef Steak for lunch !!! "The Kitchen"

in Foodies Bee Hive4 months ago (edited)

Last year, I have been to many restaurants and tried different foods and cuisines. I like food and when I feel depressed, good food always helps me out. Just like many people prefer ice cream or sweets or chocolate when they feel sad. I won't call myself a foodie because I am very choosy about the menu. I don't eat everything or every type of meat and I have a very specific taste in terms of tasting different cuisine. For example, I don't like mutton and I don't like only vegetarian cuisines. Don't get me wrong, I prefer non-veg especially beef and chicken the most.

So, whenever I go to a restaurant I spent most of my time exploring the menu rather than spending time eating food. I don't hesitate paying/spending money on tasty food but I also check the service as well of the restaurant.

In Kharkiv, recently I have noticed a lot of new restaurants. Not all restaurants are for me to be honest so I only visit those where I can actually eat. Many people question me many things about food because my country people are very curious about my food habit. Do I have horrible experiences? I won't say I have tasted real bad food in life but I can say I have bitter experiences with the service and the price. When you pay a good amount of money for food, you definitely expect a nice portion of the meal right? That's where I have bitter experiences.

Last year I went to a nice restaurant called "The Kitchen". The restaurant is located at Naokova, near the city center. I had to go to the address office of Kharkiv and the restaurant was the nearest. I saw the review of the restaurant before but never thought to go there but as I had free time, I decided to go there for lunch.

The restaurant itself is a nice restaurant, they have outdoor sitting as well. During winter, it stays closed. "The kitchen" is known for craft beer pub rather than a restaurant. They say that for those who love to have a beer in a cozy atmosphere, this is their place. So, after entering the restaurant, I was confused and curious whether I am going to get anything to eat or not as I was not there for a beer.

The interior of the restaurant is very traditional, which reminded me of English Pub mostly. The touches of brown color and leather made the entire restaurant look cozy and comfortable. You will feel comfort and warmth. The interior was not too much for me, I thought it was okay.

Some kitchen crockeries were hanging from the ceiling, it was an interesting concept and related with the restaurant name as well. They have a bar area, breakfast area, and dinner lunch area, separated.

It's a very traditional style English restaurant where you can enjoy your food with a beer or a peg of whiskey.

The menu book was so different and unique from the other restaurant's menu. It was not about the food, it was the book itself. Yes, the menu looked like a book to me, the paper was handmade and each page was a wooden plank.

I took a lot of time seeing the menu, especially the menu pages... hahaha...

Finally, it was time to order the food and a nice waitress came to me what I wanted to order. The good thing was she understand English so I didn't have any problem ordering food. Due to language issues, I have ordered the wrong food a lot of times and ended up eating nothing.

I have ordered roasted chicken with potato and mashed potato, mushrooms with sweet and sour sauce. I also ordered a beef steak with sweet potato and pumpkin puree. The waitress asked for 15 minutes so I had plenty of time to browse my phone.

The food arrived in time and deliciousness was all over the place. The fragrance of the roasted chicken and the tenderness of the juicy medium-rare beef steak had raised my appetite and I was feeling so hungry. So without thinking twice, I just took some photos and then started eating.

The mash potato puree was buttery, silky, and smooth. The chicken was juicy and tender. The sweet and sour sauce added extra flavor to the dish. It was really a good plate of food.

When I cut the piece of beef, I had noticed the medium-rare flesh which was perfect for a steak. When I take a bite with the pumpkin puree, it was so juicy, tender, and tasty. I felt like the whole deliciousness was in my mouth. Each bite of the steak was mouthwatering and the puree was tasty too, not too overpowering.

It was a great lunch, the foods were really tasty and worth each penny. The total cost for 2 people was 15$ with the service charge.

Will I visit there again? Probably because I don't go to that location often so if I pay a visit there, I will definitely go to The Kitchen for their steak...

That's all for today, folks...

Until next time... Have a nice day everyone...

Thanks for reading my blog...

@priyanarc

This is a great post! Wonderful photos, and great review... the Coke bottle on the table made me smile!

From your post:

"The menu book was so different and unique from the other restaurant's menu. It was not about the food, it was the book itself. Yes, the menu looked like a book to me, the paper was handmade and each page was a wooden plank".

To me, this says a lot. I graduated High School back in 1988, so it's been a while since I have been in school. But I swear I remember the statement, "Presentation, is 85% of sales". And for the restaurant to care enough about the menu... that says a lot to me as well.

By the way; you have a lot of great posts focused on food, with the #foodie TAG. So... From my hive-engine wallet:

That's so generous of you Wes, I am going to stake these tokens for sure...

Completely agree because plating and presentation elevate the food and restaurant level. I never hesitate to pay when I am satisfied with the ambient, service, and food. I personally think it is worth it...

Thanks a lot, Wes for stopping by...

That looked phenomenal! Very nice presentation. Plus I liked the look of the interior. I am not sure about how the money is there compared to here, but it seemed reasonable. I would love to sample each of those dishes!

Here Ukrainian currency is different but to understand the UAH(Ukrainian currency) I write dollar after conversion. Food price is reasonable here in Ukraine compared to many other countries, especially in Kharkiv... I remember, once you mentioned, you like having a nice steak always...

That food looks 10/10.
That's the lunch I'm waiting for very long, I'm sick of my own cooking 😅

Ya according to the look it deserves 10/10, according to the taste 10/10. Well deserved whatever money I have spent for... :D

That's the lunch I'm waiting for very long, I'm sick of my own cooking

In Dhaka it's hard to get nice steak when I was there, I don't know what is the condition now...

There are some places where you could get some nice stake meal. But they cost too high. For a family meal, we have to pay around $50. Also, there's nothing here in Banasree. So paying for Uber to get the meal is kinda silly.
Good to see yours. :)
