Last week, I was lucky to be part of the recent Bonifacio High Street Food Crawl where I was able to discover new restaurants and explore wonderful dishes in various cuisines. Thanks to RJ Ledesma of Mercato Centrale and Anton Diaz of Our Awesome Planet for inviting me in this exciting gastronomic trip as a #BHSFoodie.
The first stop of #BHSFoodie was The Wholesome Table at BGC Central. Clean eating has become more popular in the country these days and it later inspired health advocates Bianca Araneta-Elizalde and her other half, Juan Elizalde, to share their conscious lifestyle of eating real organic food which nourishes and restores the body.
The cozy restaurant has an impressive yet natural interior with muted earthy colors. I like how it looks very relaxing to eat out in a countryside setting.
Enjoy being kind to the earth
As its name suggests, The Wholesome Table provides clean and healthy food for its customers. It uses organic produce mostly from local farmers and their meat are from grass-fed cows. Eggs are free-range and they do not use any processed ingredient. Truly, diners will be comfortable eating delicious and nutritious food in their wholesome table.
Organic Mushroom Fritters
This dish is my new favourite. The crispy breading hides an entire button mushroom with mozzarella cheese and Italian sausage. Served with a tomato passato, I never tasted a healthier deep-fried! Haha.
Who says one cannot have a healthy and organic pizza? This order comes with mozzarella and grana padano cheese, shiitake mushrooms, and turkey chorizo. The taste is so-so for me, but at least I won’t feel guilty after devouring a plate of this.
I internally squealed when I saw this dish on my table. It is definitely a perfect and complete meal for anyone. Losing weight and/or getting fit doesn’t equate to starving yourself and this bowl shows how healthy you can be by eating the right food.
You are what you eat
I’ve been eating out too much these past few months and I usually feel guilty right after a sumptuous meal mostly filled with oily and fattening dishes. However, eating healthy and organic food at The Wholesome Table made me feel different. It made me realize more that clean eating doesn’t have to be boring as taste is very subjective. Tasty and nutritious food are served at The Wholesome Table without sacrificing flavors and I think this is where healthy eating can be more appealing to my generation. It is true that you are what you eat and my experience at this restaurant inspired me to pursue a healthier course.
