Secret Garden

There was a time when Gerard wanted to eat a really good meal at a garden restaurant with (name of future girlfriend insert here) or his group of friends.

Gerard's food cravings came true a few weeks ago when he was invited by his homo sapien friends for a dinner at Isabelo Garden Restaurant in Marikina City. Gerard calls it "The Secret Garden," a hole-in-the-wall restaurant. He even got lost getting there, so that's how secret it was. Yet, it was worth all the trouble! 

This little secret garden took us back in time: Isabelo is an ancestral house-turned-garden/outdoor cafe, which shelters decades-old (or perhaps centuries-old) trees, retro-themed floor tiles, and colorful lights, details which Gerard instantly loved.

The food was just as fantastic; Gerard gave it a Capital D for Delicious! The Spinach Artichoke Dip nearly bought metal tears to Gerard... it was amaze-balls! He also finished an entire plate of Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Pesto all by himself. His metal tum-tum was so full. Capital G for Gluttony! *food coma

Gerard was impressed with the whole dining experience that he won't leave the restaurant without meeting the wonderful chef behind it—Portia Baluyut
Chef Portia grew up seeing her grandmother cook, and since then, like her lola, she prepares and cooks the food with the secret ingredient: love. Yeah, yeah, that statement is oozing and dripping with cheese. 

Gerard can't wait to have a romantic dinner at Isabelo with (name of future girlfriend insert here) soon!

This is a food blog, right? But WHERE ARE THE PHOTOS OF THE FOOD? Well, the food was really really good that Gerard ate all of it and forgot to take photos. Ooops! Check out their website:
