CMK EATS : THE WHOLESOME TABLE


I've been aware of THE WHOLESOME TABLE from Green Living, a lifestyle channel from ANC. It was owned by Bianca Araneta-Elizalde and the fact that it offers organic, fresh, guilt-free comfort food enticed me in an instant. The late lunch bonding with G was long overdue and I thought it would be a welcome break from our usual around-Makati lunches.

Okay, a little background. I've had a long day that Sunday. I've been to a mentos moment as my trusty old wedge gave up on me whilst I was about to attend a blog event. Got stressed because, errr... I didn't want to walk barefoot along the stretch of Ayala, Makati. Then, the heat hit me hard. Enough said. I've had a migraine attack. Sob!

Moving on, I am glad that I made it to our late-lunch. I can't say this warrants a full food review since we've only ordered a handful. Nonetheless, here are my thoughts, if you like:

CMK HAPPY THOUGHTS:
The promise of only-the-best ingredients. I've ordered their take on carbonara and G ordered a chicken with pesto main dish. I don't usually eat bacon, specially fat portions but I gave it a try. Tell you what, it tastes different. Pork is soft and succulent and the pasta is not overpowering {nakaka umay}. They serve big portions for pastas too. I like their ambiance. Too bad I was not feeling well to roam around but I like their rustic feel.




CMK WISHFUL THOUGHTS:
The calamari below costs Php 200+ and it's tiny! I can seriously eat 3 portions in one seating. On that note, I don't think we got our value for money. I thought this one's to share but I was wrong. The dip is tasty though. I have high hopes for their coffee but there's nothing much to rave on this. It tastes typical, actually. We've paid around Php 1,100 for the 2 pastas, 1 coffee and 1 calamari.




Verdict?


CMK THINKS:
If you want to pig out and feel good after, by all means - this is the place to be! Aside from location and value for money factor, I think this is a good place to try healthier options.
