My spouse and I dined at Funky 'Lil Kitchen (FLK) in late June 2013. We had heard that Pottstown was not the safest area, but we felt pretty comfortable, especially on a summer night when it stayed light until 9:00 pm. We had been hearing about this restaurant for years, and when we recently heard that they were thinking about closing to open a food truck, we thought that we had better get there ASAP. The restaurant participates in the Open Table reservation system. (The restaurant is open for dinner only.) This is a BYOB establishment. The restaurant does not have its own parking lot, but there is street parking as well as a public parking lot across the street.
The restaurant space is small, and diners are seated fairly close together. The dining room is somewhat open to the kitchen, so you can see what is going on behind the scenes. Oddly, the restroom is enormous as compared to the dining room space!
The menu is very limited - perhaps four appetizers and four entrees, which is only a problem if you are a picky eater (which we are not). Our appetizers arrived quickly, and after reviewing the menu choices again, it seems that is because most of the dishes/components were prepared before guests arrived. One of us had a scallop entrée that was unbelievably tasty, and we still remember it to this day. We thought that the portions were a bit small for the prices charged (and we eat in New York City often), and the restaurant does not offer any type of bread option that would easily serve to fill the diners up a bit. The dessert menu is written on a glass bottle, which is a novel approach to presentation. The restaurant sells some organic dog treats and other unique pet items in the front corner of the restaurant.
We might return here if we found ourselves in Pottstown, but we might also try somewhere different instead.
