Here's my story. One chilly afternoon, while working online at the restaurant, I looked around and observed. I noticed that we've got so many trees around the resort. All kinds like coconut, mango, kasoy, santol, mahogany, palm trees, etc. We even have a Tipolo Tree where the name of my hometown Antipolo was derived.
These trees were planted by my grandparents and family so there's that heritage value. Not that I'm not aware of my surroundings just that I find it cool to eat in a place full of trees. Trees are green and the Spanish of green is Verde. There you go!
Here it is, the menu of Verde Restaurante...
Breakfast specialty at Verde is Mango and Green Tea infused Pancake. There's nothing like it anywhere if you ask me. Another favorite is French Toast Fusion - dipped in milk coated with egg and dusted with powder sugar.
For the more health conscious that I am, the following are my usuals:
For salad, Gourmet Greens filled with lettuce, queso puti, cherry tomato, mandarin orange with herbed balsamic vinaigrette.
For sandwich, Healthy Veggies - grilled thinly sliced aubergine, cucumber, bell pepper, tomato and carrots spread with garlic pesto sauce in toasted baguette.
For pasta, Tuna Pesto Pasta - al dente spaghetti topped with healthy combination of tuna, pesto, grilled tomato and garlic.
For rice toppings, Chinese Soy Chicken - white rice topped with steamed chicken served with its special ginger soya sauce.
One of my favorites is the Classic Grilled Platter - sampler of grilled stuffed squid, tilapia and pork liempo partnered with ensaladang mangga, camote tops and okra with bagoong (shrimp paste). Another favorite is Sinigang na Bangus Belly sa Manga - milkfish in young mango soup base with Filipino native vegetables.
