Kitchenette Putney Review
Top 10 things we learnt about Kitchenette restaurant:
1) A late night visit to the kebab shop is almost a rite of passage in life. However, I do know the Ottoman Empire wasn’t just built on kebabs, and Kitchenette in Putney has helped to enforce my views with their eclectic menu.
2) Strolling in, you wouldn't for one second think it’s a Turkish restaurant with its homely feel using warm natural timber and homemade tiles. The main table by the entrance is sprinkled with newspapers, homemade cakes and pastries that wouldn't look out of place in any designer showroom.
3) Kitchenette did start offering Mediterranean inspired food when it first opened, but it’s decided to go back to its roots and celebrate what is magnificent about modern day Turkey.
4) Luckily for the bored taste buds of Londoners, we get to try exotic dishes like Manti – ground lamb dumplings with yoghurt. Unusual as it is, I would have preferred larger and fewer dumplings, the lamb was almost undetectable.
5) The Turkish love their yoghurt. They even add yoghurt to their poached eggs as in their breakfast dish, Çilbir. The wonderful thing is you can even try this at 16:30 during weekends, because Kitchenette understands it’s not easy to defy the gravitational attraction of your bed.
6) I was on more assured grounds with my main course, Külbasti. It’s thinly sliced lamb with sautéed potatoes, peppers and spinach. It was so well marinated; it made up for the shortage of sauce.
7) Mastic oven baked rice pudding sounded curiously captivating, but whilst it was well made, it was no different from most English rice pudding. I was almost expecting a blast of Turkish spices to attack my senses.
8) Patriotic, they certainly are. Their top of the range glass of wine is from Mahra Yazgan. It is one of the largest and oldest wineries in Turkey and has won numerous wine awards for its extensive range of wines.
9) Kitchenette is also a cocktail haven. They have a concise range but with a Turkish twist like their cleverly named Istanpolitan which is similar to a cosmopolitan but with a touch of Raki, the national spirit of Turkey.
10) They have the obligatory restaurant terrace which is an essential ingredient of summer restaurant dining and cocktail enjoyment, which no doubt would be even busier if it was facing the Thames....read more
