Tagaytay Bistro Saratoga Organic Food


An enticing restaurant has opened up in Tagaytay City, by the name of The Bistro Saratoga. The Healthy Gourmet Menu provides the first all organic food in the Philippines thanks to the work of Jacqueline Haessig Alleje.

Because of it's nature of being all organic, the restaurant relies on fresh local goods instead of imports. This provides extra work for locals as well, considering the vegetables are picked from Flowerside Farm and Tagaytay Highland Plantation Hills.

The protein dishes revolve around seafood and chicken, raised without synthetic chemicals. Even the condiments are carefully chosen to include healthy fats. My personal favorite are the fruit and vegetable smoothies available.

Being a true chicken fan, the Coriander Pesto Free Range Spring Chicken caught my eye. The pesto is great and it is served with Rosemary Marble Potatoes. Whole Wheat Squash Ravioli made from semonila flour looked good as well.

Quality restaurants such as the Bistro Saratoga provide a change from the poor choices at fast food restaurants. With an option such as this, people will start to see and feel the difference after eating here. Best part is the food is local, providing jobs in addition to superior taste and health benefits. If you're in the beautiful Tagaytay City, drop in on Bistro Saratoga for a wonderful organic meal.
