The Charismatic Kaffiesta

Well – I was a bit skeptical at first, but this place is definitely a hidden gem!!!   I love that its laid back with that cool charm, great service and good food!

The space is small and reservations are definitely recommended.

Attractive, popular, highly regarded and sophisticated – we imagine most restaurants would love to be like Kaffiesta Steaks when they grow up. The almost total lack of gimmicks lets the staff concentrate on giving diners exactly what they want.DSC_0195DSC_0197DSC_0198DSC_0199DSC_0200DSC_0201DSC_0202DSC_0203DSC_0213DSC_0214DSC_0216

Do I start with the great service or do I start with how great the food is? Do I first of all tell you how each of the dishes from the Spicy Chicken Wings, Kaffiesta Big Monster Burger, Grilled Chicken Steak to the BBQ Prawn Sizzler and Goan Curry tasted like a piece of heaven if heaven was edible?

I wish I could eat here every day. Who cares about calories and dieting when you can have a big, juicy, delicious and very smoked steak.

I had been almost “stalking” Kaffiesta on social media for a while and couldn’t wait for the day I would try their food.

We did a “walk in” and were seated at a table with no hesitation.

The Menu :

SHAKES:

Strawberry Shake – the name itself brings heavenly taste of strawberry to the taste buds. Delicious refreshing beverage was perfect start of the day. DSC_0269

MOJITO:

Strawberry Mojito – Fresh strawberries give the classic mojito a refreshing twist. TheseStrawberry Mojitos will be your new favorite drink of summer. Such a delicious and refreshing drink perfect for summer!DSC_0237DSC_0252

Mojito perfecto – Temperatures rise in the thermometers and the body asks for cool drinks to combat the heat. A light & refreshing, sparkling mojito with bright citrus flavors and a hint of mint.DSC_0243DSC_0244

Basil cucumber Mojito –  This is something that works so well for the summers, given the freshness that basil and cucumber, both bring to the drink. DSC_0234DSC_0235

Orange Mojito – Orange chunks, mint leaves and lime wedges. I just loved this refreshing taste and something different than the regular orange juice.  A deliciously refreshing punch. DSC_0246DSC_0247

STARTER:

Spicy Chicken Wings – There are few finger foods as satisfying as a classic spicy chicken wing. Here wings come with a layer of bread crumb ! Marinated with secret inhouse spices and herbs, served with garlic aioli and cocktail dip. The chicken wings came out perfect! Crispy and tasty !DSC_0224DSC_0226DSC_0229

Bruschetta – Italian Salsa, Mushroom and American Corn. Toasted french bread topped with Italian Salsa, Mushroom and American Corn. Garnished with bufala and extra virgin olive oil.DSC_0239DSC_0253DSC_0254DSC_0255DSC_0256

BURGER:

Kaffiesta Big Monsta Burger –  Double size juicy burger chicken with 2 layers of egg and cheese served with large fries and caramelized onions. I was immediately hit with the taste of a juicy burger patty.  Filled with thick layer of patty , tomatoes, onions, lettuce and cheese, this burger is insanely filling. I found it a bit on the sweeter side though, with the sweetness from the caramelised onions and patty shining through. The biggest issue with the burger was that the juice from the meat seeped into the buns and turned it a little soggy after time, but that won’t stop me from ordering it again.

Fried chicken burger –  When the mood for fried chicken strikes, this crispy chicken burger will be here, patiently waiting in all its glory. Composed of super thick chicken cutlet. Chicken breast marinated in a soy, ginger and garlic sauce, which is battered and pan-fried to crispy perfection, and paired with sesame mayo. The breading was crisp and the chicken was tender and moist. DSC_0293DSC_0295DSC_0296DSC_0282

MAIN COURSE:

Mexican Jerk Chicken – Tender chicken thighs are marinated in a homemade Jerk marinade, grilled. A simple hot and spicy marinade transforms humble chicken thighs into this Mexican signature dish.  This fiery marinade is so hot and so good, you’ll want to have it all through the summer.DSC_0334_seth

Grilled Chicken Steak with Pepper Sauce – Delicious grilled marinated chicken covered with a rich, bold black pepper sauce.  The chicken is delicious enough on its own, but adding the sauce takes the dish to a whole new level of YUM!DSC_0308DSC_0309DSC_0311

Tenderloin Steak – This steak is cut from the beef tenderloin part of the short loin. It is greatly desired for being the most tender cut of beef. Oven-seared beef tenderloin steaks are topped with a rich, creamy sauce with beef stock and fresh herbs. This tender beef tenderloin will melt in your mouth. DSC_0314DSC_0315

Goan Prawn Curry – Coconut Prawn Goan style served with herb rice,  topped with egg ! It  is full of rich, deep flavours. This is a pretty traditional dish, a spoonfuls of this curry screams comfort food! The very aroma of this curry, makes me want to dive into it as soon as it’s served, so delicious! Delicious coconut milk base that yields a fantastic tangy yet still zesty flavor!DSC_0318DSC_0321

Mac Cheesy Mama Mia – Macaroni pasta tossed in creamy cheesy sauce finished with a blend of herb and exotic cheese.  I am not that much fond of pasta, but this fresh macaroni pasta is much tastier than the dry sort and is well worth the effort to taste it. DSC_0335DSC_0336

BBQ Prawn Sizzler – Grilled prawn tossed in house made BBQ sauce. These prawns are so delicious they are hard to resist. Exotic oriental flavours of these succulent prawns with a mildly spiced dipping sauce is certainly a matter of enjoyment. DSC_0324_DSC_0329DSC_0330

Love this place. Great food. Super nice staff. I have heard people mention the prices being pretty high but you get what you pay for.

The menu has enough variety to give the diners some choices, but nice and short so you know they’ve focused on execution. And focus, they have. Everything was amazing, from soup to curry we started with, to the perfect entrees.

It was my first time there, but will definitely come back. If you haven’t had the experience, I highly recommend it.
