The Wholesome Table is not just a restaurant designed for healthy eaters – What makes them stand out from other ‘organic’ places out there is that their meals are specifically designed to cater to those who follow a specific diet plan or lifestyle. Are you lactose intolerant or allergic to nuts? Are you vegan or vegetarian? Are you gluten-sensitive? Then The Wholesome Table has a dish for you!
A relative of mine told me about The Wholesome Table a couple of Christmases ago, and I made a mental note to go check the place out.
All of the ingredients that they use for their dishes are 100% organic, all sourced from local farms – Which is good because they do need our support. Also, you only live once, so you might as well eat the healthiest food around (I need to start following this mantra once 2017 comes, hehe).
Menu: Small plates, Toasts, Soups, Salads, Sandwiches & paninis, Power bowls, Pasta, Woodfired pizza, All day breakfasts, Main course, Desserts.
Drinks menu: Detox juices, Superfood juices, Nutmilk, Smoothies, Refreshers, Water, Coffee, Tea, Craft beers, and Wines.
Breakfast Calzone – With arugula, free range eggs, mozzarella from Bulacan, emmental cheese, truffle, crust, and turkey sausage. This was almost good – The arugula had this weird aftertaste to it that I found particularly nasty…
Grass-Fed Meatballs – Three pieces of beef meatballs, also filled with bits of Bulacan mozzarella. With pickled onions, and onion cherry tomato passato. Pure meaty, beefy, goodness.
Nutty Garlic – Spaghetti with roasted garlic pesto, and extra virgin olive oil. This wasn’t too bad! Although I find it slightly strange that they used store-bought pasta for this dish instead of just making their own… This could’ve given them the chance to use more healthy organic ingredients too.
And here are our wonderful organic drinks! Mom had the Be Delightful juice, which contained a tasty blend of carrots, apples, and oranges. Meanwhile, I had the ultra-refreshing Almond Milk – Made from raw almonds, dates, sea salt, vanilla, filtered water, and honey. Now… I’ve enjoyed almond milk for so long, drinking glasses of it, pouring it in my cereal and what not, but… This? This is absolutely incredible. It was creamy, smooth, and tasted 2x sweeter than the almond milk found in stores. I could probably drink an entire jug of this if given the opportunity.
That was great! Despite it being on the pricey side, like most organic restaurants, I still left the place feeling full and content. What a way to end another year of fun and delicious reviews! Can’t wait to find out what places I’m heading off to in 2017.
