Green Pastures

"Flights disrupted after plane skids off NAIA runway" was the headline in the morning papers earlier today. Xiamen Airline skid off the runway Thursday night causing widespread flight disruptions.  A couple of friends of the hubby  who were booked to depart yesterday were  forced to stay for a day or two while awaiting new flight bookings.

So we invited them for lunch to keep them company. They were billeted in Shang at the Fort which was just a few steps from Green Pastures.

We ordered the following :

Farmhouse Salad  (small P455/ large P625)
shredded kale, chopped romaine, konbu, roasted chicken, mambo goat cheese, hardboiled eggs, bacon, corn,  ripe mangoes,  tomatoes, honey mustard dill vinaigreette

A complete meal in itself. It had all   the requisite protein-carbs-fat-fruits-veg one needs in one's daily diet. It was satisfying and filling . Love the greens. Did not even know there were kale in it.
clam  and seaweed-konbu broth, broccoli leaves

This was a simple dish with complex flavors. It actually pleases my inner perpetually-on-a-diet self. I had no guilt whatsoever finishing the whole plate if only I could, Our fish was a bit on the overcook side but can easily be overlooked because of  the saving grace - its lovely broth.  Clams were on the thin side.

Locally termed SINUGLAW - Its actually a marriage of  grilled pork belly or sinugbang baby liempo and fresh tuna with vinegar . GREEN PASTURE'S  version though includes marinated yellow fin tuna, nose-to-tail pork sisig, tagalog chillies and lime. At first glance, I mistook the  marinated tuna for cubes of pork fat until i took a bite. So there was a bit of a disconnect for a second or two.Quite an interesting dish this one. There were  both sweet and savory notes.

home-made in a bottle, fried kesong puti and toast

I loved the bread and the fried kesong puti. The Bangus was your ubiquitous Spanish-style sardines that are found in supermarkets everywhere

Overall,  it was a pleasant afternoon having lunch with new friends of the hubby from their regional office. It was/  our first time in this branch but already visited their Shang Mall branch twice so we are familiar with their farm-to-table/ organic-food concept. Looking forward to more visits to try other items in their menu.

Thank you to my handsome hubby for lunch haha.

GREEN PASTURES is located at  the ground floor Net Park  5th Avenue Bonifacio Global City Taguig.
