Sunshine Kitchen A Western Oriented Cuisine

Sunshine Kitchen: New York City Represent


Sunshine Kitchen, with its brick walls and subdued lighting, takes its inspiration from New York City bistros. They serve hearty meals coupled with cocktails, hard liquor, and various types of local and imported beers. “Being Western -oriented, cuisine-wise, Sunshine Kitchen caters to a lot of cuisine branches under that umbrella,” Tanya adds. “I am personally partial to Spanish food, so many of our dishes are Spanish-inspired. We use the freshest ingredients and hardly any processed or canned food. We also try to source produce locally, if possible.”

It was quite a warm afternoon when I ventured into Sunshine Kitchen for the feature, so I was glad to be able to try their Iced Tea with Mint (P85). With just a hint of mint, your ordinary (but deliciously brewed!) iced tea becomes a bit more exciting. This came wonderfully paired with the Shrimp and Squid Scampi with Pesto (P380), a delightful medley of lime-laced, slightly spicy flavours. The shrimp and squid are as fresh as Sunshine Kitchen claims their ingredients to be, which makes a huge difference on the overall impact of the dish because there is nothing quite like partaking of fresh seafood.

Rabo Del Toro (Oxtail) Stewed in Wine and Tomatoes (P480) is a true testament of Tanya’s affection for Spanish food. The oxtail meat is very soft, but what defines it as a cut above the rest is the sauce that it is served with. The wine and tomatoes come together beautifully to enhance the flavour of the meat, giving it a traditional yet adventurous taste. The 6 Hour Slow Roast Porchetta (P480) is the restaurant’s top best-selling dish. This dish is sure to hit home with Filipinos as it is rather reminiscent of our beloved lechon. The pig skin is crisp and flavourful—I found myself quite surprised to find out that I could easily slice it with a fork—while the meat is appropriately tender. This dish comes with three different dipping sauces: gravy, vinaigrette, and roast garlic and herb salsa. Try not to count your calories while savoring this dish, as it really is worth the cheat day. Both rice meals are served with rice pilaf, which goes well with the dishes.

For dessert, we were able to try the delicious Key Lime Pie Ice Cream (P240). For that price, you get two scoops of rare-flavoured ice cream dusted from almost top to bottom with crushed graham crackers. Not bad, right? To heap on more praise, this ice cream dish boasts of a heavily smooth, creamy texture that suits the flavour just right.

Food at Sunshine Kitchen is relatively simple, but the heartiness and the warmth of it all make the restaurant worth your money and your time. Whether you’re in the mood to partake of one of their sinfully delicious main dishes or to order an appetizer that’ll go well with your chosen beer, Sunshine Kitchen, with all its modern New Yorker charm, is a place that everyone is bound to enjoy.
