One of my food trips in Davao involved Tiny kitchen. Tiny kitchen has, well, a kitchen that’s rather tiny. (please bear with me people, I’m doing my best to describe it). I once met an Italian who told me that in Italy, the places where you can find good food were in small restaurants that were hidden and the only marketing these restaurants needed was the word of mouth. So far this seems to be consistent with all the wonderful restaurants I tried in Davao and Tiny Kitchen is no exemption.
Tiny Kitchen is owned and run by the Florentinos themselves and we had the wonderful honor of being served by their adorable daughter. Not only did we eat in a Tiny Kitchen, we had quite a Tiny Hostess too. The dishes really were made out of love as this cute restaurant is a family effort. Don’t underestimate this restaurant for just looking cute, when we got to see the food I was just impressed with the great variety of dishes and the wonderful selection of desserts.
The nice thing about this restaurant is that it’s small. Yes, I like these small restaurants. It’s private, cozy, and the prices are not that bad at all. If you do however, order a Paella, expect the original Paella served on an authentic Paellera with of course, an authentic price.
They really have an excellent selection of Pasta, Paella, and desserts! I personally can’t forget the Paella negra. Oh, I love Paella! Such a rare treat for me because authentic Paella is not that easy to find in my place. If you plan to eat there I strongly recommend their Paellas (though mind the price), Pasta Marinara and their Velvet cake.
We had a few photo ops with the owners themselves and I daresay I am definitely going back to Tiny Kitchen when I have the chance.
I do like to apologize for the poor quality of photos, there were so much food I had to shoot everything in 2 minutes.
