With the many restaurants that have sprouted all over the various cosmopolitan areas of Metro Manila, one stands out and has continued to provide quality food and meet excellent standards throughout the years.

The Kulinarya Global started with their first diner along Katipunan in 1999, a restaurant with an unpretentious menu selection and a new world charm.

In 2001, it relocated to the prominent Rockwell Power Plant Mall, and now, 14 years later, it has evolved and established a name for a wide range of clientele, from the families and couples yearning for tasty food, to the busy corporate group wanting a good meal amid their hectic schedules, famous socialites, balikbayans, tourists, and members of the diplomatic community.

Those who frequent this place know that the Kulinarya Kitchen is a must-try when looking for exquisite meals, impeccable service, and relaxing ambiance, all at an affordable price.

Here are my top recommendations:

1) Seafood Salad Maki


This has become my favorite starter dish, which is a taste of Japanese with a unique twist. It's made of seafood and crabstick salad rolled in nori, breaded and deep fried ebi drizzled with Wasabi vinaigrette, soy balsamic reduction and mango coulis. This amazing creation which you won't find elsewhere gives you a unique version of maki.

2) Salmon Gravlax Antipasti


If you're a fan of salmon just like me, this appetizer can give you a medley of flavors. The freshness of fish mixed with tomatoes, herbs, and shallots with wasabi dressing and balsamic glaze is truly delectable.

3) Flat Bread or Nachos with Hot Cheese and Chorizo Dip


Something to share with the gang to pair with beer or their house wine.

4) Crispy Pork Belly con Chorizo


Prepared with creamy risotto on tomato seafood broth topped with tasty garlic infused pork belly.

5) Prawn Thermidor


For seafood lovers out there, you should try this delicious prawns on chorizo sauce served with Spanish rice.

6) Salmon Beurre Blanc


Fresh salmon with white wine butter creamy sauce, capers, and lemon. This seductive entrée will exceed your expectation with its distinctive taste.

7) Special Supreme Beef Salpicao


Special supreme beef salpicao, sautéed tender juicy angus with special sauce, accompanied with fresh baked bread. Enough said.

8) Suman and Latik and Mango Flambe


For dessert, try their Suman and Latik and Mango Flambe, a Filipino dish that will satisfy your sweet craving. Crispy coated rice cake and flambered mangoes drizzled with sweet coco jam and served with vanilla ice cream -- a modern variant of our classic Filipino delicacy.

Chef Patricia and husband Carlos Mesina incessantly do their research and innovate exceptional dishes with the influence of East and West to satisfy the insatiable taste of customers.

Their menu consists of a gamut of choices, such as salads, pasta, pizza, family platters, seafood, and Filipino dishes with a twist, as well as limited specials for the week or month.

They truly live to their motto of “Serving Good Food Everyday.” Kulinarya Kitchen is located at Rockwell Powerplant Mall. They also have a newly opened branch, Kulinarya Experience, at the Commerce Center of Filinvest Alabang. They provide catering and accept private functions.
