When one think of a garden-inspired dining haven, your involuntary neuron will always register Sonya's Garden. Nothing beats the organic entrees of Sonya's but if you would like to settle for a neighborly ambiance, one may stop by Greg & Sally Tree Garden Cafe in Marikina.
Marikina has been a treasure trove of fine culinary experience, and Greg & Sally is one of those iconic experiences, where the restaurant is nestled within the lush greeneries inside the garden enclosure.
The dining space is a little squeaky but there's an open air area that will provide a windy comfort of an organic breeze.
Calamansi & MInt Juice and Dalandan & Tarragon Tea(Php60 each). You can read short stories while waiting for you order. We were given about 20 min as preparation lead time. I particularly like "Run Kuting Run!"
Glazed Pork Cop(Php120) - port chop marinated with special barbecue sauce served with rice.
Gourmet Tinapa(Php175) - Tinapa flakes served with a side of Talinum salad, egg and rice. Obviously, or order of someone with a Kapangpangan descent, my Baby Lovey.
Talinum salad to blend with the Tinapa.
Peppered Steak Premium(Php190) - pork steak marinated in special spices, served with mango salsa and steamed rice.
Maybe because they are trumpeting organic inclination that I felt that the food tastes generally bland. Good thing is that Baby Love's order had a salad to compliment the taste and I requested for a toyomansi to thicken the taste of the steak.
But for its price, what more could you ask for. And with Baby Love frogging my heart out, what more can I say.
