Let’s take a break from all those recipes today and let me just tell you a bit about what we had for lunch at this Balinese-inspired resort in Balete, Batangas called Cintai Corito’s Garden when we went there last April.

I’m starting to blog about our stay there at The Wandering Peach, in case you want to check it out.

In terms of the food being served at the resort, I’ve read a lot of not-so-good reviews about them a few months back, so my family and I have already prepared ourselves for the worst. Surprisingly, I’m happy to say that they have improved tremendously!

peanutbutter had his favorite beer while waiting for our food and we feasted ourselves on the Coconut Juice which was served as a welcome drink upon arrival.

There were eight of us who stayed at the resort: me, peanutbutter, my sister who calls herself Anney, my brother Noel, my cousin Rome and the three kids that you always see frequenting this blog: my daughter Ykaie and my nieces Cyra and Cyvrine.

I love the table setting and it’s like this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

That lunch, we basically had the usual Filipino dishes we are used to having at home. We were just surprised because the serving was big compared to the previous reviews. Our vegetable dish was Pinakbet. To my non-Filipino friends, Pinakbet is vegetable stew made with squash, okra, bittermelon, eggplant, snake beans and alittle pork sauteed in shrimp paste. {recipe here}

Their version of Chicken and Pork Adobo had potatoes….our version at home has hard-boiled eggs or is usually paired with salted eggs but both versions are absolutely delicious.

Rome and I ordered Mango Shake. I was expecting a refreshing, icy version but what came were creamy Mango milkshakes. Rome likes his fruit shakes that way, I like mine better with a lot more fruit than milk.

Soup is, of course, Pork Sinigang — our family’s favorite dish. {a Filipino soup characterized by its sour flavor which traditionally, is from tamarind}

It was such a satisfying and filling lunch!

It was siesta time and more picture-taking after…

I will post about what we had for dinner and breakfast in the following days.
