Kitch is a new bar/restaurant we stumbled into after the ChocoSol workshop. It’s so new they hadn’t even officially opened when we went there. When we entered we were surprised by the large space – from the outside it was barely a hole in the wall next to a bicycle repair shop in a very industrial area. Inside was filled with cool street art mixed with Mexican décor.
The ambience is built up with an interesting attention to detail – a wall of speakers, piñata’s, a pinball machine, lounges to sit around in and even a large patio out the back. An animation projected onto the wall in time to the beats from the DJ.
We we’re starving! We ordered nachos to share and some drinks. Unfortunately the nachos arrived about 2 hours later. We spoke to the staff and they were very apologetic, saying that this was the very first night of having a functioning restaurant.
When it did arrive we demolished it in seconds! A delicious salsa made from fresh tomatoes, peppers, green onions, olives and guacamole and dips on the side soon made us forget how late it came – if they get their service up to the same quality as the food then they’re on to a winner.
The DJ was on the floor above. The music was loud and very good. This will definitely be a great bar to hand out, listen to great music and play some vintage video games.
Prices were about average – a pitcher of Sangria for $19, vegetarian Nachos for $12.50, both of which would easily split between 2-4 people. The menu offers some interesting Mexican fusion such as jerk chicken tacos and spicy mac n cheese burritos.
