Brought my two dates to Sonya’s for a late lunch. It was their first time to eat there, so I was psyched to see them experience one of my favorite lunch spreads and give them a tour in the gardens.
I love their buffet because I can eat a lot and not feel guilty after because everything’s just so healthy! The veggies and herbs are all from ‘the gardens of Sonya.
There’s just a few dishes to choose from, but everything tastes wonderful, so it’s still worth the payment of P1,030/person. they have white rice and spaghetti, ratatouille, sautéed shitake mushrooms, chicken in mango and cream, tomatoes in olive oil, salmon belly, glazed sweet potato and banana spring rolls.
My personal favorite is spaghetti with salmon belly and tomatoes, mushrooms, capers, olives, and parmesan. I can also eat a plateful of the minatamis na kamote. I think nilagyan ng cinnamon kaya ang sarap. 🙂
Shempre, let’s not forget the unli-salad na nakakalula sa dami! Crisp lettuce, arugula and flowers served with cups of pineapple, mango, papaya, crushed peanuts, cucumber, onions, tomato, singkamas, hardboiled egg, and the super secret salad dressing.
There’s also the freshly baked bread that comes with cheese, pesto, chili, and pate. Bread and salad pa lang, nakakabusog na eh! Dagdag mo pa ‘yung unli-fresh dalandan juice nila.
Other dishes included are pumpkin soup (creamy and sweet!), roast chicken (tender and herb-y), chocolate cake (super moist), and tarragon tea (ginagaya ko ito sa bahay).
Bondat kami as I expected. That it took us an hour yata before we were able to visit the spa, shops that sell toiletries, teacups, books, bags and other pretty things, the panaderia and the gardens of course!
It’s also hard to resist taking some vanity shots because the place is so pretty! It just cements my dream to turn my patch of land in Bataan into a garden as lovely as this! Pero mas maraming gulay ‘yung garden ko! At fruit-bearing trees!
Sonya’s Garden also has a bed and breakfast and event halls for wedding receptions and such. There are times when Sonya goes around her garden. The last time I saw her, she was signing her book. Siya na. Siya na talaga. Peg!!! 😀
