Discovery Country Suites: Your Cozy Home in Tagaytay

If there’s one hotel group my family genuinely loves, it’s the Discovery group! We have stayed in Discovery Primea and Club Paradise a number of times and really appreciate the detail and thoughtfulness of the entire Discovery team.

For my birthday, we decided to spend a night at Discovery Country Suites in Tagaytay and we really had a wonderful time. This little bed and breakfast can house 25 people comfortably and feels as cozy as someone’s mountain home. The amenities and rooms are super comfortable. Here are some pictures, we stayed at the Siam Suite.

And if there is one area that the Discovery group is consistently amazing at, it is the quality of food they deliver in ALL their hotels. Check out all the delicious meals we had below.

Restaurant Review: Blue Ginger

Last week, the Baby Barangay (sans Nicole) were invited to try Blue Ginger, the latest restaurant of amazing woman Ica Sebastian.

Ica is the creative force behind a number of delicious restaurants: Cafe Voila in Tagaytay, Another Story and Tiger Leaf in Evia and now Blue Ginger in Sucat.

Before discussing the food, let’s take a moment to appreciate the interiors of this incredible restaurant, all done by Ica herself!

Each part of the restaurant is so picturesque! Now let’s have a look at the food which is a mix of Filipino, Thai, and other Asian dishes. Our favourites were the spring rolls, pomelo salad, Kare Kare, and satay. We finished with a delicious ube cheesecake too!

Blue Ginger is located at the Wharf The Lake Front, East Service Road, Sucat

The New Filipino Menu at Green Pastures

The Baby Barangay girls and I recently got together to try the new Filipino dishes of Green Pastures, one of our favourite restaurants in BGC.

We often enjoy coming to Green Pastures for their fresh juices, delicious bread and dips, and hearty salads, so we were super excited to try how Chef Robby Goco was going to serve Filipino food in a healthy yet tasty way. Here are the dishes we enjoyed!

Shrimp in Sweet Potato Fritters: These were soooo good! The perfect mix of sweet, salty crunch. The dipping sauce was equally amazing. I would come back just for a plate of this.

Steamed Clams: In a Binacol stock. These were super tasty without any rubbery texture or fishy aftertaste.

Taro Leaves and White Cheese Dip: Laing has never been so tasty as this appetiser with the perfect crunch from the chips.

Ceviche and Roast Pork Sinuglaw: A favourite of Nicole’s who cleaned the entire plate. This local dish done right.

Sous Vide Chicken Inasal: My favorite Bacolod Chicken Inasal just got taken up a notch with organic, free-range chicken.

Yellow Adobo: A Goco family heirloom recipe that doesn’t use soy sauce. Only  quality vinegar and turmeric. Patty’s son Theo loved this so much that he sent a vide thanking him for the amazing food!

Naaaaaks Fried Chicken: Crispy organic chicken, well seasoned sweet potato fries and homemade banana ketchup.

Jackfruit Kare Kare: This was so delicious that you won’t even miss the meat. You may even ask for an extra serving of bagoong.

Crispy Short Ribs: Cooked slowly for 24 hours and then deep friend.

Bibingka: This was so good! Moist, buttery, salted egg + cheesy goodness in every bite. I think you will forget your name!

Chia Seed Dessert: Similar in taste to the much loved ginataan but much healthier.

What makes Chef Robby Goco’s creations so wonderful is that he doesn’t use MSG, soy sauce, or any other canned ingredients in any of his dishes. Aside from olive oil, every product in his restaurant is locally sourced and created FRESH in the kitchen. Yup, no commissary for Green Pastures.

It’s safe to say that the girls and I loved everything and are already looking forward to our next trip back.

Green Pastures BGC is located at the Ground Floor, Net Park, 5th Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
