A Healthful Celebration of Accomplishments at the Master’s Garden
Let’s get our gob around a few flowers (again)! =b
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’?
We’re getting ahead of ourselves.
Welcome to this little virtual tour of the Master’s Garden!
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/
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. =)
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.
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
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.
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!
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!
With burps all around (excuse us *hihi) from this hearty spread, this celebratory meal looks to me like it was a great success, too. (“,)
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.

X Marks the Spot for Good Baguio Foods is a personal blog. Everything posted in this blog is PERSONAL OPINION DERIVED FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE and since TASTE can be pretty SUBJECTIVE, should NOT be taken as THE NORM or the LAW OF DINING around in the City of Pines.
Its (prosaic =b) contents are meant to help with the question “san tayo?”/where do we go? in relation to eating out in Baguio, to ENCOURAGE EXPLORING (eatsploring) and TRYING NEW THINGS offered in the City of Pines.
By all means, eat where you want to eat and eat what you want to eat. May you have a great experience with all the places you visit and may all the restaurants you go to deserve a ton of treasure chests! (“,)
(Also, if you have any second thoughts about a certain place you arrive at, please DON'T LET THIS BLOG BE THE REASON YOU ARE FORCED into ending up anywhere. If the restaurant doesn’t have what you want, please FEEL FREE TO WALK AWAY.)
