I opted to go for a healthy dinner after a sinful treat in Farmacy. I know it’s unusual to have dessert first before a proper meal. But… How can I say no to ice cream in this summer heat? It was nearly impossible! Okay? Besides, there’s this study that shows the benefits of having dessert first. Go check! 😉
Anyway, I was surprised to discover that Green Pastures already has a branch in BGC and it was just a few steps away from where we were. Perfect! Now off we went!
Perfect indeed! Look how cozy the place is… I daresay this one is the best among the other branches I was able to visit (Shangri-la and Eastwood). Beautiful!
Green Pasture’s monthly special salads – May Salad: Cinco De Mayo Taqueria Salad (P430/small) – are the main reason I keep coming back to this restaurant. Regardless of whether the ingredients – romaine, arugula, roasted peppers, avocado, caramelized onions, feta cheese, cherry tomatoes, red radish, crispy tortilla strips, lime wedge, cilantro lime dressing – they put in that wooden bowl were organic or not, it didn’t really matter. They were all refreshingly tasty!
I am not going to be descriptive anymore about how good they really are, you have to see it for yourself!
Pinoy Eggs (P150). Five minute free range duck egg wrapped in house made longanisa. The name was catchy enough that it got our attention. I was expecting for like 2 or more eggs for this dish since it says eggs with an S, meaning plural (the need to stress it out 😂), but we were only served this huge egg.
The server offered to cut it open while we watched in amazement as the egg yolk oozes out of it onto the bed of those edible ferns. Hmmm looking good. But no, we didn’t like it! Haha! There was nothing satisfying about it other than how beautiful it looked.
Green Pasture’s Carbonara (P395/small). Pancetta, mushrooms, green peas, micro greens, pecorino, spaghetti. Another egg that caught our attention. We were really curious as to how a carbonara would taste like with an egg in it. It’s kinda weird, don’t you think?
Our first impression when we saw it was “Hmmm this got to be good!” But no, it tasted weird, all right. The sauce was not that sweet. It was bland.
The server might have seen our reactions coz he came up and asked about the food. He left and came back with parmesan cheese. Yes! How can you enjoy your pasta without lotsa cheese, right? But for some reasons, it didn’t really change anything. You have to improve on this one, GP!
The ambience was something we surely enjoyed! It was a perfect place to catch up with family and friends. The service, on the other hand, was excellent. They were very attentive and helpful.
The next time I visit I will stick with the salads. Or if you have any recommendations on what I should order, please do comment below. 😊
