Sonya’s Garden

This was the main purpose of us going to Tagaytay – to check out Sonya’s Garden. We were first-timers so we didn’t know what to do at the beginning. We don’t know how to order or how to get things started. So we just observed, observed, took pictures, observed, and walah, food started to land on our table.

Sonya's Garden, Table Setting

Sonya's Garden, Interior

Sonya's Garden, Green Salad
This was the first to be served: Freshly harvested lettuce and arugula topped with mango, broad beans, eggs, cucumber, jackfruit, pineapple, edible flowers in season, etc., drizzled with Sonya’s Secret Dressing or Balsamic Vinegar. Personally, this was my favorite.

Sonya's Garden, Freshly Baked Sesame Bread
Everybody got full on the first wave of food, but they just kept on coming in: Freshly baked sesame bread from their Panaderia.

Sonya's Garden, Pesto, White Cheese, Anchovies, Tapenade
And of course, the bread comes with homemade dips: pesto, white cheese, anchovies, tapenade.

Sonya's Garden, Pasta
“Let there be pasta.” And so these appeared with three kinds of sauces: Sun dried tomato; chicken cream with mango; and ratatouille; topped with salmon belly, mushrooms, black olives, capers, anchovies.

Sonya's Garden, Tarragon Tea
The Tarragon Tea and its ever-calming aroma. I can spend the whole day just smelling it.

Sonya's Garden, Glazed Sweet Potato
And what’s a complete meal without its dessert? Some sweet potatos.

Sonya's Garden, Banana Rolls
Eto pa: Banana Rolls.

Sonya's Garden, Sinfully Tasty Chocolate Cake
This is the deadly part. You’ll commit a sin when you eat this, for it’s sinfully tasty. Haha.

Sonya's Garden, Table Setting 2

Sonya's Garden, Sunflower
You’ll see this outside.

The place is extremely calmingly fresh, and one can even fall asleep for the place’s cool breeze. I suggest that you go here when you drop by Tagaytay. Bring your friends along for their serving is good for small groups of people (5 or so I belive). Plus, the price is really reasonable.

Sonya’s Garden can be located at: Barangay Buck Estate, Alfonso, Cavite, Philippines
(near the vicinity of Tagaytay City, Philippines)

Caleruega was one of our stop-overs during our Tagaytay road trip. I’ve heard a lot of stories about the place (ghosts and all), so my expectations of the place impressively soared high. I got excited to take some photographs, and this is how I saw the place.

W is a big fan of Jap Food. Especially sushis. So she dragged me to Ebisu, along with her sister, to try if their food are of her standards (she’s really particular with the taste). Well, Ebisu passed. And we are going back here definitely.

You can visit Ebisu at the 2nd level of Citywalk, Eastwood. I personally like the place for the interior is great, the service is good, and the food is worth every penny.

W and I were invited to see Moonstar88’s later leg of their album lauch at Club Dredd before. While waiting to the event to start, we decided to feed our tummies with some Vietnamese cuisine.

Zao Platter at Zao (part 1)
I forgot what this is called. But this is really good.

Zao PLatter at Zao (part 2)
This is the Zao platter. Four diferent types of BBQs, served with Vietnames love.

Grape Fruit Shake at Zao

I really recommend this place if you are around the Eastwood area. It’s not that pricey, but the food is great.
