The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has caused many brands— particularly restaurants and food businesses— to rethink the way they operate. For catering service Kitchen City, delivery was the next best thing.
Kitchen City first started out as a catering service for hospitals like Medical City and Makati Med. However, due to the pandemic, business partners Peejay Yambao and Jun Abelardo made some changes. In a lightbulb moment, they turned their signature dishes into frozen meals, which are now available for delivery. That way, the owners could provide employment to their 300 staff in their commissary and serve affordable, ready-to-eat meals. Win-win!
Kitchen City’s Menu
Kitchen City aims to bring the well-loved Lutong Bahay experience to your homes. A Filipino standard of good eating, Lutong Bahay involves preparing food with your loved ones’ best interests in mind.
Kitchen City’s Frozen Meals come in 50 ready-to-eat dishes that you can choose from. These include its signature Beef Caldereta, which you can readily reheat and enjoy. Other bestsellers include vegetable dishes like Laing, Gising-Gising, and Tofu. On the other hand, Kitchen City also offers Kare-Kare, Roast Beef, Sisig, Paksiw, Sinigang, and Adobo for meat eaters.
And let’s not forget dessert! Kitchen City’s Frozen Decadent Cake is a chocolatey treat that comes in a tin. It’s a real must-have for those with a sweet tooth.
Kitchen City’s Frozen Meals are all prepared with quality ingredients. That’s not all, either. They all come at budget-friendly prices, ranging from Php250 to Php550 for a family-sized serving that can feed 4 to 5 people!
Made Safe, Made Delicious
Conversely, you can rest assured that each dish is safe. In compliance with food safety protocols, HACCP and Good Manufacturing Practices, Kitchen City’s production team all wear safety gear from start to finish. They carefully handle the ingredients and use top-of-the-line convection equipment during production. To further ensure safety, Kitchen City even does its own deliveries!
“We knew that food safety is an integral part of people’s decision on where to buy their food; hence our tagline, ‘Made Safe. Made Delicious,” Abelardo explains.
Kitchen City delivers all over Metro Manila and Rizal, as well as selected areas in Laguna and Cavite. Soon, Kitchen City will be expanding their delivery hubs to include Bulacan and other key cities in the Philippines. For inquiries or to order your very own frozen meal, you can visit their website or social media accounts.
