The Farm Organics Alabang.


Located in the vicinity of Alabang Hills, Alabang 400, and Hillsborough Alabang Village is a new hole-in-the-wall restaurant called The Farm Organics.




T and I went there straight from the airport when we arrived from my Boracay birthday trip.




According to their website, The Farm Organics is the first to offer local certified organic grass-fed beef in the Philippines.




The set-up is that you order at the counter and pay at once.




I saw these numbered apples by the cash register.  Curious, I picked it up and was surprised to discover that they're not real apples but actually markers for pending orders.




There's a mini store by the side of the restaurant but I wasn't able to see what products they have for sale because there was a family dining there until closing.




I love that The Farm Organics provides sea salt as a condiment.




Their utensil set up reminds me of one of our favorite cafes in BGC (read my blog post about Wildflour Cafe + Bakery).




For our appetizer, T got the Organic Bone Marrow (P300/$5) which is good for its price, comparing it to the bone marrow we tried in Cue Modern Barbecue and Stella Woodfired Bistro.




For his main, T ordered the Tenderloin Steak (P630/$15.75).  For the first few bites, it was ok.  But halfway through, T and I both felt that the steak was cooked with too much spice and kind of lost it's "organic" touch.




All steak dishes come with one free side.  T chose Mashed Potatoes.




On the other hand, I got Kesong Puti Burger (P280/$7).  I love the kesong puti combination but I found the burger a bit dry.




For our drinks, T got Lemon Green Tea (P100/$2.50) while I got a Very Berry Smoothie (P150/$3.50) made from fresh fruits.






We're not sure if Kristine Hermosa and Oyo Boy Sotto own this place but we saw them there talking to the people in the kitchen ;)




Thumbs Up!
Organic food.
Good ambiance.
Inexpensive prices.

Thumbs Down!
Dry burger meat.
Overwhelming spices on the steak.

Verdict
T and I will give this another visit to try their other dishes since the place (and the people) are so nice.  And how can you go wrong with organic, right?
