This restaurant is a partnership between Got Heart Foundation and Hizon’s Catering. It sources its ingredients to the nearby farms of Got Heart located in Tarlac which has food grown by our very own farmers. The partnership aims to serve healthy and fresh ingredients, while giving livelihood to the farmers. Vegetables and fruits are grown without the use of genetically-modified organisms (GMO’s), chemicals, synthetic fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides. Everything served in the restaurant is made from scratch: pasta, ice cream, tortilla, risotto, and soups.
The interior of the restaurant is aligned with the concept. The touch of wood panels and garden-themed decorations make you feel like you are dining outside. They also sell products from Kalinga to give consumers here in the Metro a chance to try them out.
First, they served Watermelon and Rocket salad. The dish is served with home-made kesong puti, candied pili nuts and a balsamic vinaigrette. The watermelon cubes give the salad a refreshing twist, and the zesty flavor of the balsamic vinaigrette adds a sharp bite that is balanced by the candied pili-nuts.
The next dish we were served was Earth Kitchen Ravioli. It tasted so good, a carnivore like me completely forgot the fact that there was no meat. This is made with camote tops and white cheese, the smooth, creamy, savory pockets are light, but flavorful, and done perfectly.
Afterwards, they served us Braised Pork Shoulder with cucumber, peanuts, cilantro and hoisin sauce, served in mini tortillas. I loved the crunch of the peanuts and the balancing brightness of the cilantro. It does get a little messy thanks to the sauce, so be careful.
For dessert, they served home-made Carabao Tablea ice cream with chocolate chip cookie crumble. You can really taste the pleasant chocolatey bitterness of the tablea in the dessert, so if you’re not a fan of sweets, this gluten-free dish is a great way to end your meal.
