Da Kitchen – Big Plated Popular Eatery

This place had cool surfing decors, giving it a very casual hip ambience, perfect for a meal anytime.

They also have the daily specials on the blackboard. Slightly hard to read, if you have bad eyes like mine🤓. O, and apparently Guy Fieri was here before too. Honestly, I have always been envious of Guy’s job.

I ordered the chef’s daily special of mixed plate consisting of teriyaki chicken, teriyaki beef, chicken katsu, and breaded mahi mahi.

Boy, I love big plate of food😍! Don’t you? There was 1 slice of beef and chicken, both had delicious teriyaki flavour. The crispy thin fillet of mahi mahi was lightly breaded and tasty. The chicken katsu was decent, nothing special though.

B had the kalbi ribs (totally expected 🙄). B preferred less charring of his kalbi, but he still devoured it to the bones as it was tender and flavourful.

Compared to our other plates, I was a bit disappointed at the portion of my take-out order of ahi poke. Unlike most of the other pokes that I have tried, these were small cubes. They did not use much seasoning, maybe none at all, except onions and spring onions. I liked the fact that it was not smothered in mayo or thick sauces. It was entirely the fresh taste of ahi fish. It smelled understandably a bit fishy, but not bad at all.

Verdict: would go back!
