peanutbutter♥ & me at the bus
The first time I’ve been to Sonya’s garden was December 19, 2006. It was a surprise birthday present from my then-boyfriend-now-husband, peanutbutter♥.
I could remember that we got there just in time for dinner….
Dinner was their set menu which includes:
Salad Greens– lettuce and arugula topped with mango, broad beans, eggs, cucumber, jackfruit, pineapple, edible flowers in season, etc., drizzled with Sonya’s Secret Dressing or Balsamic Vinegar/extra virgin olive oil.
Fresh baked whole wheat sesame bread with an array of homemade dips and toppings: basil pesto, white cheese, anchovies, bruschetta tomato toppings. mushroom pate, black olive tapinade and fresh green peppercorn in olive oil.
Pasta– With two kinds of sauces and toppings: sun dried tomato and chicken cream with mango. Topped with ratatouille, salmon belly, shitake mushrooms, black olives, capers and grated parmesan cheese, pepperoncini.
Dessert– homemade chocolate cake from the Panaderia .
Drinks– Bottomless freshly squeezed dalandan juice (green mandarin) and tarragon tea
I find the table setting in 2006 to be more romantic than what they have last year. I went there to celebrate my birthday last December.
Breakfast included: fried rice, pork and chicken adobo, crispy danggit, omelet, ripe mango and melon, and hot chocolate or coffee
