Green Pastures is one of the top foodie destinations here in Shangri-La Plaza, and this was evidenced by the number of patrons and customers visiting this restaurant throughout the day. Luckily, I was able to give it a visit during one fine lunch without having the need to queue up (which is a usual case here in Green Pastures).

A Comforting Back-To-Nature Place
Green Pastures shows how much it loves the beauty of nature by incorporating a "farm" appeal in its design. This will enable you to catch an ambiance of comfort and being free. For me, being here in Green Pasture indeed makes you feel like you are in a greener pasture where the business of the world simply drifts away as you enjoy the food with your companion/s.

Here in Green Pastures, you have the freedom to customize your salad which by the way comes from the freshest ingredients straight from the farms, ranches and whatnot. This is in line with the commitment of the restaurant to serve quality products that are fresh and sustainable.

I heard that the serving is generous for each dish here in Green Pastures; hence, we just ordered one dish each - vegetable burger for me and duck fat fried chicken for my friend.

Most of the time I'm carnivorous; however, during this time I was in a mood to try something different and healthier. Hence, I went for this Vegetarian Burger, which really surprised me with its meat-like texture and taste! It was really awesome!

I don't know how Green Pasture does it, but I'm really impressed with this burger! Unfortunately, I loved it without the sauce, since there's this "bean-like" taste that didn't end up in good terms with my taste buds. Oh, the fries were great as well!


Duck Fat Fried Chicken (Pro-Biotic) || P595
Sweet potato fries, honey-butter herb de Provence, roasted banana catsup.

Tantalizing Dishes in Green Pastures
Top notch dish presentation made the dish more tantalizing! 
This Duck Fat Fried Chicken was something really interesting because of the uncommon tang from the duck fat used to fry the chicken. However, I must warn you that you need to focus on the taste to be able to appreciate it. Otherwise, you'll feel like you are overpaying for some regular fried chicken.

Also, even though I am not a fan of sweet potato, I got fascinated that Green Pasture served this with the chicken. It really is not that frequent for restaurants to serve something like this.

Hmmm, there you go guys! I hope I got to try some other dishes, but these two are all I got. Don't worry, I'll update this post as soon as I get to try more dishes here.

Give your approval or disapproval to Green Pastures

Although I already knew that this place is something to rave about, I still got blown away with the awesomeness of the food from the design to the intricacies of the taste! Hence, even with a high premium to pay on these dishes, I still found high value for the money. With this experience, I am more excited to try out other dishes here in this restaurant. Thus, I hope you'll share with us the dishes you personally recommend. Cheers!
