Kilo kitchen has just launched a new weekday menu full of flavour and innovation that includes lunch bowls like Smoked Ahi Tuna Donburi, Curry Tofu and my favourite, Beef Tongue.

There’s an overlap with some of the popular items from the dinner menu, so if you need a quick lunch with work friends or you want to linger for longer then Kilo Kitchen's new menu is just the ticket.

 

ROCK STAR GREETING

Kilo Kitchen Denise McCann and Lucas

Women Of Wine WOW Denise McCann with Luca General Manager Kilo Collective

The location in Duxton is large and open and welcoming. Set amongst a row of shophouses, the space has been affectionately converted into a New York style vintage industrial warehouse, with the inside vibe spilling effortlessly outside! 

We all love an open kitchen and Kilo’s does not disappoint. You can prop yourself up at the bar and while sipping on a glass of cool, crisp white wine,  you can observe the kitchen team expertly preparing your lunch!

 

WOW MOMENTS

Kilo Kitchen Crab Croquettes

The individual set lunch of 4 courses which includes an appetiser “snack”, one of their new bowls, a broth and a sweet “snack” - as well as a non-alcoholic drink - is a bargain at $25++.

The Crab Croquettes (pictured) with Basil Vinaigrette were divine. The lightly fried breadcrumbs that encased the moreish crab mix was taken to the next level with the basil. 

Another special mention goes to the Numbing Burrata with Mala Oil Dukkah with Croutons: the heat of the mala sauce is offset by the cool silkiness of the burrata, but be warned: eat this dish slowly so your lips survive. It's worth taking the time over.

 

WINE SERVICE

Kilo Kitchen

I do like a glass of white wine with lunch. The wine list at Kilo Kitchen has been thoughtfully paired to the big bold flavours on the menu. I recommend the Arido Torrontes 2017, which is often underrated,  but it pairs perfectly to many styles of food.  

Torrontés is an Argentinian white grape variety grown in Mendoza. As the winemaker states, “the wine has a misleading nose: this super dry white wine smells like a Gewurztraminer with huge floral aromas but is actually bone dry making it a great match with savoury dishes.” Delish.
 

RECOMMENDATION

It's really worth popping in for lunch. It will make you want to take the rest of the day off. So make a booking now and say hi to Luca, Gabriel and the friendly crew at Kilo Kitchen. 

Kilo Kitchen's lunch menu is available Tuesday to Friday between 11am -2:30pm

As soon as I walked in to this roomy, relaxed restaurant I loved the seating options available. The bar, table seating - main dining and al fresco outdoors plus lounge, creates a fantastic chill atmosphere immediately. The spicy margarita infused with slices of jalapeno warmed my tummy making way for the Pan which could have been mistaken for bread. Fermented potato focaccia with an adobo dip, this was a yummy start to the array of snacks to come. Grilled avocado was a new experience with crunchy buckwheat puffs. I preferred the crab croquettes though, the stunner being the basil vinaigrette accompaniment. Looking forward to the beef tongue tacos which are one of Kilo's signature dishes, I was more enthused by the light, refreshing tones of the wasabi tuna tartare with nori dusted crisps. My absolute favourite was the Atas lentils. How could it not be when cooked with 4 major flavours of manchego, bacon, truffle and iberico? Another small plate I would highly recommend is the squid ink rice. Served in a clay pot with crispy baby squid and ikura this was filled with flavour. I also loved the light lemon tones of Kilo's seafood ceviche which served as a cleanser to the other snacks. By the time I finished tasting snacks I found the large plate of sea urchin rigatoni pasta a bit heavy. For lovers of sea urchin, I would recommend having this dish on its own with perhaps one snack. To complete my night my pick of the two desserts served was definitely the coconut tembleque. The light pineapple tones came through like sorbet to the palette. Kilo hit the mark on food quality, ambience and great service. Make a reservation before you head there as it was full house and it wasn't the weekend yet......
