A quick out of town trip is something we like doing. It is a getaway that can help us recharge, unwind and just relax. To be away from the hustle and bustle of the city without going too far, we always head out to Subic, Zambales at least once a year.
On our last Subic trip, Harbor Point Mall was already open. Since there were only a handful of restaurants worth visiting, (not to mention uniquely Subic) we tried Ben’s Kitchen.
Ben’s Kitchen is created by the same family who brought us Xtremely Xpresso. It was named after the owner’s husband, Ben who had a knack for delicious comfort food. The restaurant’s interior was also designed by the owner’s daughter.
Vintage pieces and displays are of Ben and his family’s collection.

With Auntie Kathy Foo, restauranteur and the owner of Xtremely Xpresso & Ben’s Kitchen. I forgot to blog about Xtremely Xpresso pala. We’ve been constantly dinning there every time we’re in Subic. Di bale next time we go back, I’ll definitely write a post about it. 🙂

For a restaurant that was on soft opening, their service was great! Staff was very knowledgable with the menu and food were served quickly too.
