Tucked away in a strip mall next to Camargo Cadillac, The Pacific Kitchen is one of those fantastic, unexpected spots. The restaurant opened at the end of 2015, and so far has gained a following mainly through word of mouth. That means the place is not crowded…yet.
The menu focuses on an eclectic mix of Pacific favorites, and diners can enjoy things like fried rice, crab meat cannoli, chicken satay skewers, bibimbap, grilled Thai herb shrimp, and more.
Cincinnati Bengals player Rey Maualuga loves to eat there, so that should give you an idea of just how great the food tastes.
My husband and I stumbled on The Pacific Kitchen while in search of a different restaurant, and honestly, the clean, crisp look of the exterior drew us toward it. We dined on the patio and enjoyed the fried rice, homemade flatbread, and a dish called “Rey Maualuga’s chicken katsu”, which also featured spam.
Entrees range in price from $16 to $24. We’ll be back… and you should go, too.
