Kite Kebab Bar's Authentic Mediterranean Dishes in Makati City

Kite Kebab Bar's Authentic Persian Dishes in Makati City

I initially thought that Makati’s food scene is paling up, but it seems like there are always new restaurants that re-invigorates the city. Each time something new pops up, Makati starts buzzing back to life again. This week, I was able to discover a new restaurant that charges up the food scene with exciting and out-of-the-box flavors - Kite Kebab Bar.

Kite Kebab Bar in Tordesillas Street, Makati

Kite Kebab Bar is tucked within the inner streets of Salcedo Village along Tordesillas. This new addition makes the area a powerhouse. We have Gino’s nearby. Juju as well, and now Kite Kebab Bar. At last, we are offered a hub with such amazing food and a hip ambiance, perfect for laid-back evenings over meaningful conversations with friends, with beer of course.

Creatively constructed ambiance
Kite Kebab Bar was conceptualized by the same man (Kian Kazemi) behind the iconic Persia Grill. The restaurant was such a major success that it easily became a house name. Picking up from there and infusing more fresh and innovative concepts, Kian decided to level up the experience. Here in Kite Kebab Bar, we are offered not only awesome eats, but also fantastic beats. The place is an art. All the walls and floors were like canvass while Kian’s imagination and creativeness served as the brush.

The menu consists of brilliantly curated dishes with price points that are very reasonable. They also have sets and platter that handpicks the best sellers for us.

For this dining experience, we had a handful of dishes that we were able to try.

This first dish which name I was not able to take note have this savory tomato goodness. There is this right mix of fat infused onto the sauce that makes each bite explode with overflowing yumminess.

The Ox Tongue/Lengua Kebab (P125) is another "exotic" dish you may try. It will surely reset your taste buds with its interesting texture of mixed tenderness and chewiness. Of course, with how well this was prepared and grilled, you won't be able to initially tell that this is ox tongue. You can test this by asking someone to close his eyes, and then let him take a bite.

Now, if you want to further level up a bit in your gastronomic experience, you definitely need to try the Lamb Biryani (P499).

Plus, the yogurt sauce here is a champ!
