We were so happy with the Bloomin’ Bread that we were still talking about it while on our way to Earth Kitchen which happens to be… right across the bakery. Gluttons? We prefer to be called food enthusiasts. ;)
N got word that Earth Kitchen opens at 6 p.m. and luckily we checked the place out before exploring other areas as it was open! I wonder who blogged that the place is closed till 6 p.m.?
Anyway, we were greeted by a charming façade and a unique door which swivels than swings. The interiors make you feel like you are inside a greenhouse (but air conditioned). I instantly fell in love with the look of the restaurant.
After checking the menu and checking blog posts about the place, we decided to go for the Watermelon and Rocket Salad (PHP270) and Beef Kebab (PHP360). Yes, we try to limit our orders to two per stop this time so that we get to cover more stops.
The Watermelon and Rocket Salad was such a beauty. It was a colorful and photogenic dish. The taste did not fail us too as it was, as my former colleague describes yummy food, a “party in the mouth”. The different textures and flavors went well with each other. I just hoped that the red watermelon was fresher. There was a great balance of sweetness, saltiness and tanginess thanks to the organic arugula, homemade kesong puti, balsamic vinaigrette, pili nuts, and watermelon.
The Beef Kebab was something else too. I love that it was very tender and had a hint of curry taste. It had a strong taste so opting for the organic Ifugao rice was a good call. I also enjoyed the grilled vegetables. Zucchini~ <3
The organic calamansi juice (PHP90) though was a bit too sweet. I prefer my calamansi juice to be tangy.
Overall though, it was a delightful lunch. I will definitely be back to try the other dishes such as the Forest Salad which has organic salted duck eggs.
Earth Kitchen is located at Lot 10, B-10 White Plains, Katipunan Avenue, Quezon City.
