I have always loved Kettle's buttermilk fried chicken so when I heard that Fireside (by Kettle) has a chicken fingers version of this, I just had to go and try it.

The place was bright and has nice relaxing feeling to it. Servers were polite and welcoming 128515

Fireside's famous BUTTERMILK FRIED CHICKEN FINGERS [P489] has become a staple dish for us. The chicken fingers were brined for 24 hours, has Cajun Ritz breading, homestyle gravy, honey, and cornbread doughnuts. I love how they mastered frying chicken. 128036 I actually prefer this over the original version of Kettle because it was easier to eat. The breading was crisp and the chicken itself was tender and juicy. 128069 As a person who has tried so many chicken fingers, I know that they can be easily overcooked because it's smaller size. (Yay for Fireside!) Even the cornbread doughnuts were better. I liked how it wasn't dry and fried and how it goes so well with the chicken. Two thumbs up! 128077🏻128077🏻

50/50 MEAT LOAF [P389] - 50-50 ground bacon and ground angus beef, barbeque sauce, and garlic mashed potatoes. Their meatloaf was so simple yet flavorful because it was seasoned properly. It went so well with the CREAMY mashed potatoes. I'm a sucker for super creamy mashed potatoes 128514Anyway, this deserves another thumbs up! 128077🏻

The price may appear expensive but I think it's worth the money. The serving size of most dishes are good for at least two people and the flavors are great anyway. During my last visit, there was only two of us so we weren't able to order much so will definitely be back to try their other dishes!

Ever since they opened in Megamall, I have always wanted to eat here. Last year, we were able to try Kettle and I loved the Buttermilk Chicken. A lot of reviews were saying that Fireside's better. Which is why I have to try it (hopefully, soon!). I was so excited when they finally opened a branch nearer and it's just in Rockwell!!! But as usual, I was not able to try it right away. 128532 BGC and Makati is just near each other, but Rockwell is not a really easy place to go to (for us), I have to find/give reasons for us to visit this place. Really valid ones. 128533 Luckily, my aunt from Cebu is here in MNL for the weekend. And whenever she's here, it's automatic that we go out for dinner. FINALLY!!! 128513128525127881128588🏼 Found the perfect valid reason to eat here.


This is located outside of the mall. Same area as Mamou and Kuretake. The place is small. Around 8-10 tables inside and a good number of tables outside. But surprisingly, it can fit a lot of people inside. Also, since they're not located inside the mall, they're open even when the mall is closed already. You can still stay even after 10pm. 128077🏼

Anyway, I like how simple yet interesting and nice the place was designed. It's like you're in your house with a fireplace (there wasn't really a fireplace but there were some woods, though. 128517). The place is relaxing and comforting. Perfect for family lunch/dinners.


Without even looking at the menu, I ordered the Buttermilk Chicken and Caesar Salad right away. Then for the rest, had to check the reviews and their IG account for the other must try dishes. I was torn if we'll get the Mac & Cheese or not because of the mixed reviews. Some were saying that it wasn't worth it and the size is too small while some were saying that it's good and one of the best mac & cheese they've tried. 128555128563 But the only way to know if it's worth it or not is to try it, right? So we did! And then we also ordered the potato chips because again, according to reviews, it's addicting!!!!

Service was not fast but was not super slow. I think we waited around 20 minutes. Good thing, we were not that hungry yet.

First served was the TRUFFLED POTATO CHIPS. Blue Cheese Sauce, Green Onions (199). We enjoyed eating this one while we're waiting for the rest of our orders. This is not just like your usually everyday chips. Because these are your potato chips made even better with the addition of truffle and blue cheese sauce. It's not super super good but it was addicting that you won't be contented just by trying/tasting a few. You have to get a lot. 128513128521

Next served was the CEASAR SALAD. Romaine, Iceberg Lettuce, Bacon Slab (Platter 389; Plate 219). I have seen a lot of good pictures and have read positive reviews about this salad. It's a salad but with a huge thick bacon slab. I repeat, THICK BACON SLAB. The addition of the bacon makes me wonder if this should be under the salad options or as a main dish because look at that BACON + THICK FAT!! This is just the small size but OMG!!!! The salad was just ordinary, your usual Ceasar salad -- lettuce with croutons and ceasar dressing but what made this salad extraordinary is yup, the BACON. It's like christmas ham but better because duh, Bacon!! It was sweet and not too salty. If you don't like veggies that much, this is a good salad choice. But I have an even better news for you! You can order just the bacon slab!! Awesome, right? Right!!!! 128521128588🏼

SMOKED MAC & CHEESE. Bacon Chunks (209).
Least favorite. Nothing really special. Meh. 128530

BUTTERMILK FRIED CHICKEN FINGERS. 24hr brined, Cajun Ritz Breading, Home Style Gravy, Corn Bread Doughnuts (489). OMG. This was so good. Why only now????? I feel bad for trying this just now but at least I was already able to try it. 128518 Served on a wooden board with doughnut holes, gravy and honey. We were surprised with the big serving size. There were I think 6 chicken tenders and 6 doughnut holes. Very sulit na for almost 500 pesos. 128077🏼 The chicken was amazing! Crispylicious! Juicylicious!! 128525 It was so juicy and oh so tender. Pairs really well with the gravy. But even without the gravy and/or the honey, it was already good on it's own. The breading was tasty, crispy and not too thick. It was not salty, too. And the corn bread doughnuts. I was surprised I was able to eat 2 pcs. It's so yummy. Loved adding honey but just like the chicken, it's already good on it's own! 128155

I now understand why a lot of people are ordering this. You should order this, as well. Definitely a must try!! 128076🏼

APPLE CARAMEL BUNDT CAKE. Maple Cream Cheese Glaze (199). Complimentary dessert because we are also celebrating my aunt's birthday. While ordering, I asked which dessert would they recommend and if they can add a happy birthday note. It was nice that they offer to just give this as a free dessert. 128513128077🏼 This was just okay, though. Chocolate brownie-like cake with Vanilla Ice Cream, Whipped Cream and Maple Cream Cheese Glaze. The cake was not moist but not super dry. It was kind of "heavy". The ice cream was good, though. 128517128523

Service was excellent. Really. 128513128076🏼 The staffs were all very accommodating, helpful and mostly, friendly. We were asking too many questions and requesting for a lot of things but they were all ready and happy to serve and help us with whatever our concern was. 128077🏼

It was a really happy fun awesome filling amazing dinner. I can't even. 1285131285189786️ We were all full but oh so happy!! We loved the chicken and I am still dreaming about it till now. Crispylicious and juicylicious!!!! Ang sarap, nakakaiyak!!! 128525 I may be late but at least I was finally able to try this place out. 128513128588🏼

And this is one of the restaurants that we feel very happy about, walang bahid ng pagsisisi at panghihinayang, mainly because of the good customer service, the yummy and delicious food, the oh so generous serving size (except for the pasta) and for it's affordability. Super value for money! 128076🏼

PS: Best to call for reservation. But do note that they don't accept reservation on weekends. Enjoy!!! 128513

Over ordered with my mom... Got the mixed salad platter, grilled halibut, and of course, the buttermilk fried chicken! We were so overwhelmed with the serving sizes but at least we're able to take the goodness that is their fried chicken home hehe.

Everything was great, but the standout was the chicken!!!! The chicken and the cornbread taste sooo sinful that I wanted to hit myself for even thinking of ordering it, but no regrets. My chicken-filled belly is satisfied and happy. 128525

Although, I do prefer Kettle's version (with the bones). Juicer meat, less skin hehe.

After 3 attempts to dine at this resto on a Sunday, we finally made it. There was a queue outside waiting to be seated but the wait was all pleasant as the friendly lady staff made sure we were seated comfortably with a blower keeping us cool while we waited outside.

Had the BUTTERMILK FRIED CHICKEN FINGERS. It was so good! Crispy on the outside and really juicy chicken in the inside. Loved the gravy, too. The cornbread donut balls that went with the chicken was a unique experience. Served with honey, a drizzle on every piece of this chunky doughnut made it more delicious! The huge serving of this dish is enough for 3 people to share but if you're really hungry (like we were), it is no challenge for 2 hungry people to finish.

Coming back soon Fireside!

Buttermilk friend chicken fingers is amazing!!! Crunchy, tender and thick! It comes with cornbread doughnuts that is super delicious and paired well with honey!! 128523 50/50 meatloaf is also a must try and is already good for 2! We waited for 25 minutes on a Saturday night since they don't do reservations during weekends. Buti pa si Alma Moreno may reservations! Joke! 128513128541128540

A big YES to the Fried Chicken Fingers! Yum yum! Service was super nice too. They offered extra gravy and honey when they saw that I finished mine already hehe I would prefer a different texture of the doughnuts tho - I would want it lighter or if not, more moist.

The most ordered item on their menu would be the Buttermilk Fried Chicken Fingers, which is perfectly paired with cornbread doughnuts and honey.

It can fill up 3 to 4 tummies. 128513

Order the Buttermilk Fried Chicken Fingers 1108811088110881108811088️! The cornbread doughnuts that are served with it have the perfect taste, texture, and consistency! Drizzle a bit of the honey over everything, great for sharing.

The Truffle Potato Chips 110881108811088️ get soggy after a while.

They also have a good selection of wines and beers 128077🏻
