For my mother’s birthday celebration back in November 17, 2015, we went to Our Lady of Candelaria Parish Church and Gourmet Farms in Silang, Cavite. Although we have relatives who live there, it was an unexplored territory for us, especially me. I live in Cavite, but I’m more familiar with Laguna and Manila.
I’m quite reluctant and lazy when it comes to posting pictures on Facebook, although some of these photos made it on Instagram 2 years ago, I still hold on to the idea that I’ll put them on my own site eventually. I just re-established my blog, with a new handle, and I’ll be publishing old (and of course, new) photographs every now and then.
Taking a trip to Gourmet Farms was a ticked off from my “go-to list”. I’ve been curious about this place, as we always drove past it whenever we travel to Tagaytay. If you’re already in the area make it a point to drop by there. Its Santorini-like structure is rather picturesque and IG worthy. The food is yummy, which I’ll account to the freshness of its ingredients since they were harvested from their own organic farm. Their menu is quite pricey, but if you’re going to indulge yourself once, it’s a wonderful choice. There’s not a lot of restaurants in the Philippines that offers a wide selection of greens. For a change from the every day greasy food try something adventurous, I can assure you that you can really taste the true essence of each vegetables here as they were freshly picked by the farmers of Gourmet Farms. I also enjoyed their subsidiary Cafe, outside the restaurant, where they sold coffee, herbal teas, and culinary condiments; their pesto and lettuce chips are great replacements for unhealthy junk foods in the groceries.
