The Farmhouse at May’s Organic Garden in Bacolod is a little gem. As the name implies, the food is all organic and natural ingredients.
It was a busy Sunday and this place wasn’t our first choice but I am so pleased we ended up there for lunch. It was busy out on the roads owing to huge swathes of Bacolod City being subjected to a scheduled brownout (power outage) for maintenance purposes.
First we went to Punta Taytay to try one of the restaurants specializing in fish. But they were ridiculously busy and the one we did go into did a nice line in loud “boom boom” music. If you can call it music! No thank you so we turned around and headed back through Sumag to The Farmhouse. Good choice!
They do a nice line in an all-day breakfast which to me was also ideal as a lunch or even Sunday brunch. I chose the bacon strips with rice and a fried egg, all natural of course. It was delicious. The native brewed coffee is included in the price too, and in case I haven’t mentioned it before Filipino coffee is very good.
They also do a terrific line in natural frozen yogurt. I have to say it was fantastic, tasty, creamy but light. We ordered the strawberry version with caramel and chocolate swirls then not satisfied with that, we also tried the yummy mango filled crepe with vanilla frozen yogurt topping. Sinful!
I almost forgot – we were hungry on arrival so ordered a chocolate chip cookie. Wow!
The Farmhouse sits next to the road and behind can be found the May’s Organic Garden Center. We did not go in but plan to make a future visit. This is what their Facebook page has to say about it:
