Return to Eve’s Garden

It’s time we went back to Eve’s Garden and so we did.

(If you want to read up on my first post about Eve’s Garden, click on this link.)

Eve's Garden Blossoms

For this visit, P3 was complete and my brother also came along.  This time, Race and I went on his motorcycle and the rest went in a taxi.  Oh my, what a route from the Lamtang Junction!  I couldn’t believe we went by ‘Cadillak-ad’ (on foot – and me, in heels) then.  Definitely, NOT 2km from the junction (either on foot or by any vehicle). =))

Eve's Garden Sign

We arrived a little too early, (to Ms. Eve’s surprise, when her husband ran into us at the gate) and so we used the time up to take a look around in Eve’s Garden garden.  We didn’t get to do that before, (sore feet and all) and now (in proper footwear =b), we met with their head gardener, Sir Ricky and the other staff as they worked on the ‘lettuce-lings’ – really itsy bitsy lettuce and other plants.  We learned about how much work they put into growing these veggies, too.  Major impressive.  Go, Eve’s Garden! \m/

A few minutes later, we were back upstairs.  (Ultimate StairMaster, their garden.)  At the dining area, I found out, it was just us again.  Weeee!  I set about inspecting and going through every nook and cranny of the place with my camera.  Artwork, carved candles, plants, and figurines that I didn’t notice much in the first visit helped make the place look more homey.

The Dining Area

Between the five of us, we got to order every type of main course that Eve’s Garden offers.  I got the grilled chicken breast which came with pesto fettuccine and whole wheat buttered fingers.  My brother got the grilled tenderloin and Beth, Karla and Race got the steamed salmon.  The meal came with its usual glass of freshly squeezed pineapple juice, a bowl of the most delectable soup I’ve ever had (ahhh, so glad to be reunited with you again), the platter of pretty salad, homemade dessert and coffee or ginger ginseng tea.

Eve's Garden Drinks

The Drinks: Freshly squeezed pineapple juice with lemon mint and sage sweetened with Muscovado sugar

Just like it was before, what really made an impression was the salad.  Beth and Karla were actually shocked that one platter was for one person.   After many photo ops with the beautiful salad, I coached the first-timers about how to eat the salad.  Away we went with rolling the nuts, raisins, carrots sticks and turnip sticks in any of the 14 kinds of lettuce.  Dipping this roll of veggies topped with a beautiful edible flower into the dressing, it’s like my whole body went, ahhhhh.  (And I wasn’t the only one =D) Truly, madly, super delish!

The Beautiful, Healthy Salad

Health (and Beauty) on A Platter (“,) The dressing is a mix of organic flax oil, sunflower oil and olive oil with seven fresh garden herbs. – Reusing 1 shot from my 2010 visit, i forgot to take a picture of all our salad platters in a row. Oh well.

We then had our main course.

Eve's Garden Soup and Main Courses

Soup: Base of onion and squash with seven herbs. Main Course:  Tenderloin soaked in sake, strawberry wine, honey and herbs; steamed Norwegian salmon with caper dressing, and grilled chicken breast with pesto fettuccine and whole wheat buttered fingers.

Focusing on the dessert today, it was still a small sized dessert.  (Again, you pretty much have your fill with the salad alone so there are no complains here.)  Ms. Eve came to the table to tell us about the food.  The dessert was just like everything that went down the hatch, our hatches =b; she said.  This dessert is a healthy dessert.  You can say that it was a mini health bar of sorts.  It’s made with oat flour, molasses, Muscovado sugar and raisins – all shipped from abroad to ensure quality.  In comparison to the butterscotch looking dessert Race and I had in our first visit, this looked more like an oatmeal bar – an ooey gooey one.  (Oh my gosh, I want more of those now.  Can we place an order for this, Maam? (“,) )

Oatmeal Bar Dessert

Don’t judge this dessert by its size. =b

I liked this dessert better and the additional information I heard about it, made me appreciate it more.  Ms. Eve related that she meant it when they painted the Eve’s Garden tagline on their sign in front, ‘Experience health in a meal’.  From the starters of the soup and salad right down to the last crumb with the dessert, it’s all about health.  No way was she going to serve cakes packed with sugar here.  It’s just as well because I thought the dessert was perfect.  (If we ever wanted it sugary/diabetes causing, we can always get it from a million other places in town. =b)  I’m Miss Sweets apart from being Miss Salty and that dessert hit the spot!

Top View of Pretty Salad

Yes, we’ll have another look at that pretty salad. =D

Eve’s Garden drinks:  Refreshing.  The soup:  Everyone around the table was going ahhhh and yum with every spoonful (and wishing there was more when the last of it was scraped out of the bowl *hihi).  The salad:  Its beauty was truly awe inspiring.  I said it was the best salad ever –looks, taste (nothing was left on the platter when we were done with it) and all.  (Ms. Eve said it was also the healthiest.  Just consider the source of the veggies.  Healthy soil!  The vegetables were harvested early on the morning of our visit to keep the healthy carbon in.  They were then soaked in oxygen water and cooled to stay crisp).  The steamed salmon:  Beth and Karla (Race, too) said nothing but wow.  The grilled tenderloin:   Flavorful, my brother said, a good choice.

Happy diners on the path to health.

The grilled chicken breast:  I thought it needed a dash of salt (Hello, Miss Salty =D) so I put some.  That did the trick.  Eating the chicken together with the lettuce it was laid on, it was really tasty.  It’s like the chicken oils, the lettuce and the chicken itself all completed each other.  The fettuccine with my meal was wonderful too.  I could’ve eaten more than what was rolled up on my plate.  The dessert:  Just the right sweetness.  I’ve never tasted anything so raisin-y.  The best oatmeal bar so far!  The tea:  You can just feel the ginger and ginseng working to make you healthier.
