Review of Tablo Kitchen X Cafe
I first noticed Tablo when we passed by it one afternoon. The place lookeda bit fancy and my first thought was "we need to give this place a try." It took a few weeks but last Saturday night, we finally trooped over and had dinner at Tablo.
The place looks cozy and homey. I loved that even with a container like walls, the wood and plants managed to give it a homey feel.
This is the menu. They are still on soft opening and have plans of changing the menu but for now, this is what they have to offer.
We ordered the nachos which were really good but for me, felt a bit lacking in terms of proportion. If they added 1/4 more, then it would be perfect for the price.
The calamari comes with chips. My Mom didn't like the calamari but it was pretty good for me. Maybe they just need to cook it for 30 seconds more and then it will be perfect.
I had the pan fried chicken and this was one A+ for me. The fried chicken was cooked perfectly. The skin was crispy and the meat was not bland.
This braised beef stir fry was a combination of good and bad. The sauce was really good but the beef was a little hard to chew. If they can cook it a bit longer to soften the meat, this would be really good.
The cream cheese wedges were absolutely perfect. It's something that I know I could finish in one sitting but had to not finish because I'd gain so much weight and have a hard time giving birth.
Overall, food wise we were not super impressed but it was good enough that we'd go back and try the other dishes. My Mom is also pretty curious about the cafe part and the bar.
Yes, they have a "hidden" speakeasy that I'm sure M and K would love to try.
I think this place is worth a try. Ambiance is great, interiors are really nice, and the food is passable though not impressive.
