A Healthful Celebration of Accomplishments at the Master’s Garden

Let’s get our gob around a few flowers (again)! =b

Some of the pots of flowering plants around the garden. =)

Ah, maybe not the ones in the photo above, I’m not sure if they’re edible …

How about a couple nasturtium flowers like these on the salad from this ‘farmer’s meal’?

La salade …

We’re getting ahead of ourselves.

Welcome to this little virtual tour of the Master’s Garden!

One of the lounging areas at the garden. *ahh, peace.

It is from our gracious hosts at the homestay, Le Coq Bleu that we’ve heard of this place; thank you ever so much, Ms. C.! Another option to make a reservation for, if you’re looking to eat something healthful for lunchtime, away from the hustle and bustle of the main city.  As for my foodie lovies and me, we picked this dining place for its name seeing as one of our cousins had achieved something for the semester. We’re making merry in our regular food lovin’ way; we’re dining with a master! Introducing, Ian. \m/

Squash soup.

Much like the set up is with its neighboring garden restaurant, when you make a lunch booking at Master’s, you’re getting the whole enchilada: Starters of soup and salad, a main course of your choice of chicken, beef or fish that you consume together with a glass of refreshing juice, and dessert with coffee. =)

Master’s Garden dining

The dining area at the organic restaurant is found at the side of the main house with a spacious balcony overlooking the surrounding hills dotted with a couple structures, some farms and the masterfully built produce garden of this dining hideaway. Having taken our places at the table, we were served a cooling glass of watermelon juice. (I have a feeling I’m forgetting one other thing that went into that mix but let’s not dwell on that. *tee hee)  In contrast to the refreshing liquid, we also got our tasty bowls of squash soup.

 metro Baguio Masters Garden chicken and pasta 2015

Grilled chicken and pasta ^^,

Up next was the salad, which was like a mishmash of salads. Under the flowers were chips of red radish. On one side of it are carrot sticks and cherry tomatoes.  At the other, were beets sticks and slices of cucumber. Resting nicely on its bed of lettuce was a spring roll. Taking a hold of the fried veggie roll, we tossed the ingredients in our plates making sure the balsamic vinaigrette got on everything. Mmm, healthy crunchy goodness and an even bigger crackle as we bit into the broken pieces of the chips peppered with black and white sesame seeds hidden under the leafy greens. =D

A plate of beef and red rice.

After shoving every piece of the salad into our mouths, our attendant then brought us our choice of main course. I picked the grilled chicken with (pomodoro) pasta. While it might look charred in the photo, the chix was flavorful and juicy. I loved the pasta too.

Fish dish (“,)

I took a forkful from my brother’s beef plate and Race’s fish dish.  Like the chicken, they were both flavorful and juicy.  I must say, the fish with herb topping is another seafood dish I’d add to my favorites.  ^^, Coming back for my own plate of that!

 metro Baguio Masters Garden refreshing drinks, coffee and dessert 2015

The watermelon drink, a cup of rice coffee and apple blueberry muffin. *nomnomnom

After a short breather at the balcony, we were ready to have dessert: An apple blueberry streusel muffin and rice coffee (Oh, how memories of that coffee made from burnt rice/it-ep/tutong got us walking down memory lane). With the taste of the apples and blueberries shining through the sweet crumbly bits of topping, our meal ending treat was a hit among all of us. Weee!

The garden of herbs and vegetables.  Get a load of the material for the dry wall/riprap. =b

With burps all around (excuse us *hihi) from this hearty spread, this celebratory meal looks to me like it was a great success, too. (“,)

Finally, checking Master’s Garden off our must try list. =D

X marks Master’s Garden for good food in (metro) Baguio. Right beside Eve, its sister resto, with almost a similar offering, it still holds its own. Heck, it’s another master in healthy dining.

Food: 5 treasure chests

Service: 4 treasure chests

Ambiance: 4 treasure chests

Price: 5 treasure chests At P350 per person for the whole set, that makes this organic meal a whopper on the tummy but extremely easy on the pocket.

    Hello po. I’m a fan of your blog. Tanong ko lang po kung meron po bang jeep na papunta jan. Thanks!

      Hello there! I’m not sure about a jeep but the first time we went to Eve’s (which is just beside Master’s) we rode an Irisan jeep up until the turning point/the junction/where the old cock fighting arena is. When we asked the manang at the store there about getting to Lamtang, and she said, there’s a jeep for that from the junction but it’s only every two hours.

      I suggest that after making a reservation for lunch at Master’s (or Eve’s) that you take the taxi instead. It really is a far walk from the junction to the garden restos. [Believe me, we’ve done that and I don’t recommend it (unless you start out real early). *hihi]

      Thank you for following the blog! Hope Baguio food adventure is going well on your end! (“,)
