Sonya's garden in Tagaytay

We were lucky enough to be treated to lunch at Sonya's Garden. The restaurant is fashioned a lot like a greenhouse (but no, we were not baking inside) with pots of plans lined on the rear area. I have gone there a couple of times back and it is always a feast for the senses. My eyes were soothed by the naturally green interiors, the plants maintained a cool breeze in the closed space, the staff played soft music, food smells and tastes great.

I got wind of news that the restaurant is quite strict about its dietary image, such that one is not allowed to drink Coke along with the meal, and the staff will most likely take it away if you brought one out. On the other hand, if you hold a wedding reception and request to serve lechon, they may allow it.

I am reminded again of my affair with chandeliers

For a description of Sonya's menu, you may view it here. Below are the photos of what we had for lunch.

First course: The greens. Quote of the day: "Ayan na ang damo." Hahaha!

Second portion: bread spreads (came with warm bread)

Pasta ingredients

We had salmon for our viand

Dessert selections pieces:

They had us taste test their dark chocolate cake

I wasn't able to go around the garden that everyone raves about because at that point of the day, most of my blood was being used in my stomach for digestion, which meant there was no oxygen in my brain, and thus its beauty will not register anyway.

  1. Funny article! :D "ayan na ang damo"

  2. The best pa rin talaga yung preceeding statement: Para akong kambing, pinakain ako ng damo
