It’s hard to find a multiple-course menu without dollar signs overshadowing the experience. But the husband-and-wife duo at Kit n Kitchen turn foodie fantasy into reality, and you’ll feel right at home.
“We are like a family; I’m always here. It’s family dining,” shares owner and namesake Kit Yiu.
The restaurant has been in business for 11 years, and Yiu continues to draw inspiration from his upbringing to create Eurasian dishes. Since he was born and raised in Hong Kong, where Chinese and British flavors meld together, and trained in Japan, his dishes reflect touches of both continents.
The Four Course Menu ($20.95 per set) is a constant favorite for customers. And if you’re looking to unwind after a long day, wine pairings are available for an additional $10 (three glasses of 3-ounce servings).
The third course invites restaurant goers to make a selection from nine enticing options. Yiu, however, recommends Grilled Beef Chimichurri. Chimichurri, a sauce that originates from Argentina, includes parsley, garlic, mild peppers and olive oil. It is spread on top of the grilled beef, adding a mild spiciness. The dish is served with your choice of rice or spaghetti.
If you’re looking to just order an entree, make the right decision and ask for Osso Bucco Milanese ($16.95), which is featured on the restaurant’s house specials menu. The grass-fed beef from Maui is braised in Roma Tomato, fresh vegetables and herbs, and also is served over rice or spaghetti.
And if you find yourself hungry late at night, but don’t want to have to resort to drive-thru, the restaurant is open until midnight seven days a week.
