Bone Kettle, a Southeast Asian kitchen serving bone broth and culturally-inspired creative small plates that just recently opened in Pasadena. A polished yet casual concept, think Bone Kettle could make for a great feature in Retail Design. As the executive chef and co-owner of Komodo, Erwin Tjahyadi was inspired by his recent travels across Southeast Asia to create an entirely new concept showcasing the rich tastes and flavors of his explorations abroad.
Through 36 hours of boiling, Bone Kettle’s bone broth is made using traditional cooking techniques and fresh, ethnic ingredients reflective of Asian culture. Bone Kettle brings a new frontier of Asian dining to the Pasadena community, with a simplistic yet bold menu that entices any foodie with a hankering for an authentic dining experience. Designed by Arthur Page Company, Bone Kettle resembles a contemporary cabin in Asia with a heavy focus on clean carpentry and plush, natural materials.
With a white marble bar-top surrounded by high-top wooden stools, the restaurant is modern, streamlined and inviting. The main dining room, situated behind sliding wooden panels, features white marble tables and wooden chairs, with glass pendant light bulbs hanging from above. A mural by famous Los Angeles-based artist Cleon Peterson known for his thought-provoking and visually-stunning paintings that often depict subtle messages on both society and culture, is showcased in the dining room.
