The past month, I’ve been making a conscious effort to start eating healthier and be more active. I’ve actually started earlier this year but I got sidetracked along the way, and so I’m trying to make it up this month before I start binge-eating again during the holidays.
With all the fastfood, dessert places, and burger joints near where I’m working, Earth Kitchen is one of the food establishments that stand out when you’re looking for healthy and organic food. Here is a quick overview of what they have to offer:
Watermelon and Rocket Salad – Php 270.00
This salad is a happy mix of sweet, tangy, and a little bit of salty. Everything in this salad is naturally-produced, and even the kesong puti is homemade.
Pumpkin and Kesong Puti Soft Taco – Php 210.00
Craving for tacos, yet it’s not yet your cheat day? This should be a great option for you – that is if you’re okay with having no meat inside those taco shells. What you get instead are pumpkin cubes, radishes, peanuts, and other greens.
Earth Kitchen Ravioli – Php 370.00
These soft and warm goodies would be a cheese-lover’s favorite. Stuffed inside the ravioli pasta are camote tops, white cheese, pili nuts, pomodoro sauce, basil, and more cheese (parmesan)! Be sure to gobble them up after serving so you can enjoy them while they’re warm.
Beef Kebab – Php 380.00
Don’t worry, this meal is still guilt-free because you’ll be having brown rice pilaf to go with the boneless beef ribs. The meat was tender and flavorful, I actually wanted more!
Pastillas Ice Cream – Php 90.00
I’m not sure if this flavor is available all the time (it could only be the flavor of the month), but the Pastillas Ice Cream was definitely my favorite that night. Thick, rich, and creamy would be the best ways of describing it, and you won’t get easily satiated because it’s not overwhelmingly sweet.
The best part about dining at Earth Kitchen is that when you order a dish, you’re not only helping your body become healthy – you’re also helping local Filipino farmers and indigenous communities. Earth Kitchen’s dishes are made from ingredients organically grown from the Got Heart Farms in Tarlac and other partner communities from Luzon and Mindanao, so this means you’re supporting their livelihood every time you order their locally grown produce.
If you’re planning to visit, you can get a Php 200.000 discount by booking you reservation through the Seatsapp (you can download it here or here), and using the promo code GeoffReview in your booking (promo code is case sensitive).
