The Pig Pen, Santa Rosa

The owners of this aptly called Pig Pen love pigs. They do have a Black Pig restaurant in distant Alabang and am guessing they live somewhere in the south. These two are concepts of Chef Carlos Garcia and his partners Ms. Tricia Villacorta -MacDonald and Ms. Berna- Garriz. We got to indulge in a number of their Asian and European fusion thanks to a Zomato food crawl here at Solenad 3.

The ambiance is on the casual side with little cute pigs on their walls. The menu is full of pork and quite surprisingly they also offer lots of organic green choices. We were served first their colorful and fresh European salad filled with crispy lettuce, pickled radish, Blue ternatea, sliced black olives, julienned carrots, dried berries, nuts, and croutons.  A worthy starter for only Php 480 to share.

This was the fifth stop of our eating spree and I was not able to try a lot. They also sent us an unusual croquette, yummy black ink variety, fried pickles, deep fried crisp onion rings, sour and savory Pork Belly Kimchi and tender Beef Shank Mushroom.

I almost forgot we got the sinful Bone Marrow as well. This was slimy good and very rich. I suggest this for the adventurous and healthy.

For a drink, I was served fresh orange with carrot, a refreshing healthy drink I needed after a day of gastronomic proportions. Try Pig Pen, it’s out of the box, they worked hard for their unhealthy and healthy menu.
