Grace Park

Philippine Tatler Best Restaurants - - ORGANIC ITALIAN -


There's a slew of restau­rants open­ing with the by-line of be­ing farm-to-ta­ble, fair trade, and slow food, but the chef Mar­garita Forés is a pi­o­neer of this move­ment in the Philip­pines and ex­e­cutes it in Grace Park.


Start with the chicharon two-ways. Baked crispy pork rind filled with smooth chive mousse, and topped with pro­sciutto di parma or salmon roe. Then have the quinoa and Cagayan etag farmer's veg­etable soup. It is a clear but flavour­ful broth, filled with lo­cal veg­eta­bles and quinoa with a hint of smoky ba­con. The lamb adobo is braised and served in a clay pot, and is the per­fect bal­ance of what are strong flavours in them­selves: lamb, gar­lic, vine­gar, and soy sauce. The river prawns in an­chovy but­ter are fresh, suc­cu­lent, and sea­soned to per­fec­tion.
