The name Gourmet Kitschen is is a play on words. Kitsch has been said to be the opposite of art- a cheap, “slapping together” of things and passing itself off as art. I must say my cooking escapades are quite the same- a slapping together of random things I may have tasted before, wanted to taste or imagined.
I am a very messy, irrational cook but I love it and it shows in the food I make.
Kitchen MIshaps and Victories, Restaurant Rants and Raves and a whole lotta wanderlust!

Restaurant Rewind: My kind of Burger
Every single time I eat at Charlie's, I'm happy :)
One of my favorite burgers in the metro. Definitely on my top 3. Make sure to add some of their aioli to your burger. omnomnomnom.
And now they have the bestest fries to order on the side too. Warning, you will be STUFFED. I suggest you get fries to share, unless you're starving. I really like the Garlic Parmesan and my sister wanted to try something else so we got two. Neither of us finished our food!
Ala's fries- black truffle and chicken liver. Good but the chunks (yes CHUNKS) of chicken liver are too big. They should make them smaller so you get a bite of it with every fry and not have to alternate.
Charlie's Grind and Grill is located at Ronac along Ortigas Avenue and in Kapitolyo in Pasig
