From the time that Earth Kitchen, BGC branch (above Jamba Juice in High Street), opened, I have eaten there quite a lot of times – alone, with a friend, with a group of friends. I simply love the place.
My take on this restaurant:
Staff provides great customer service. You are welcomed nicely when you arrive. They are polite, they listen to you, they make recommendations, refill your glass with water even without you asking, they are ever willing to take photos of you and your friends. These things are important! I don’t eat often in restaurants because I avoid spending too much money on food (yep) but when I do, I know that my experience can be greatly affected by how I am treated by the staff. A negative experience in a restaurant does not only come from bad food, but mostly from bad service. You won’t see this in Earth Kitch!
The interiors look great. Though my aesthetic judgement isn’t impressive, the look basically says ‘We only serve organic and healthy food here and there’s no soda.’ #ThereReallyIsNoSoda #OnlyJuice (The juice is yummy!) The colors are refreshing, vibrant, natural. It has a lot of wood, greens, and images portraying our local traditions.
The food. Oh, the food. I’m going to express my feelings through photos!
The best thing about Earth Kitchen: It is a partnership project with Got Heart Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports marginalized communities in the Philippines. Food served in EK is healthy, clean, and good. Almost all ingredients used are sourced from local farmers. Before reading the menu, read through a background page of EK, how it came about and what it does for specific communities.
I hope you enjoy your first, second, or third visit to this place and let me know how you like your food!
