A homey place that serves awesome comfort food tucked away at the second level of Fort Strip, Sunshine Kitchen’s flare comes from it’s charming interiors and some really good food with bright flavors. And when you see porchetta on the menu and all it’s slow cooked, sinful glory; you go right in and try that seemingly nice place.
We had a quick lunch here, tried a couple of stuff. The menu’s fairly concise with a couple of items; but with every section you get that really interesting dish that you’d want to try, that’s really a good sign. Started the meal with dishes that are very simple and turned out to be some really amazing treats.
Mixed Greens, champagne vinaigrette, nuts, gorgonzola.
It’s rare for me to like a salad dish, for most often than not, I try to skip the green and leafy stuff. Their sunshine’s green salad was a worthy exception. Some mixed greens that gives that nice hint of crunch to the bite enveloped by this really nice vinaigrette of bright flavors, it’s very refreshing. Then you hit it with the nuts for some really interesting texture, then there’s the cheese giving a more complex flavor, it’s really good.
Mixed mushroom + Poached Egg = Heaven! A very simple dish with bold flavors that got raves from all of us.
A medley of mushrooms oozing with earthy, umami flavor, then you hit the egg and this golden yolk-y goodness bursts and acts like a sauce for the mushrooms, it was heavenly, to go back and forth of the flavorful mushrooms and the creamy goodness of the poached egg. A dish that’s made of simple flavors that just works. This one’s a must-try.
Marinara, Cabanatuan longganisa, porchetta, mozzarella, ricotta, bell pepper
Pizza with all the good stuff, their sunshine pizza is loaded with good flavors, a medley of ricotta and mozzarella cheese makes for a creamy, buttery base then you hit the porchetta and longanisa bits giving a nice spike of flavor. Then there’s the runny egg, took a bite and the yolk oozed out it’s creamy goodness that binds all the flavors together.
Six hours slow roast porchetta with rice pilaf, herb salsa, and green beans (Good for two)
Their slow roasted porchetta is a hefty meal and is said to be good for two people, but if you’re in the presence of such beauty, slow cooked pork and all it’s crunchy fatty bits and succulent meat, I’d rather not share it with anyone else. 😀 Took a bite and I love how the fatty bits was crunch, then you hit the fatty bits and all the sinful goodness melts in your mouth, oh wonderful! Took another bite and got to appreciate the succulent meaty bits too. Flavor’s fantastic, the combination of herbs and spices only highlights the natural flavor of the pork. It’s really, really good! A definite must-try!
I love their key lime pie ice cream! It had the right amount of tartness, very refreshing and a perfect palate cleanser. Then you it the crushed graham bits giving this nice tinge of sweetness that balances the flavor. This nice blend of sweet and tartness left me wanting for more; spoonful after spoonful I enjoyed their key lime pie ice cream to the last bit. It’s simple, good, and very refreshing. Truly an awesome treat to beat the heat.
Sunshine Kitchen’s interiors like their food, is a combination of various influences at one end you get this traditional wooden bar, tables and chairs then you have the industrial light fixtures, a good marriage of old and new.
VERDICT: Sunshine Kitchen at Fort Strip serves some really good comfort food, we liked the stuff we got, and that porchetta’s heavenly! I’m really excited to go back there and try some really interesting items on the menu. Food, ambiance, and service was laudable, we had a good dining experience.
VALUE FOR MONEY: Depending on what you get, food can be a bit pricey, some of the entrées are good for sharing and for the quality of food, I’d say it’s really worth it.
