What’s more fulfilling than a business with a purpose? From the very start, Earth Kitchen knew its purpose, with a clear mission and vision. Earth Kitchen is established as a restaurant dedicated to support local farmers and indigenous communities around the Philippines. It is a project of Hizon’s Catering and Got Heart Foundation.
 What do they mean by that? It means, Earth Kitchen’s dishes are specifically crafted to showcase the produce of the Got Heart Farms in Tarlac and other partner communities from Luzon to Mindanao. Some of the products are the following: cashew nuts from Palawan, Pili nuts from Naga, wild honey foraged by Mangyans and Tagbanuas, and organic greens grown in Tarlac and Bukidnon.
Don’t confuse Earth Kitchen as a vegetarian restaurant. It is an organic restaurant that meets the increasing demand for natural and organic produce. In this kind of business, the plan is to sustain the livelihood of marginalized communites and to encourage more farms to produce good, clean and healthy food. GMOs or genetically-modified organisms is prohibited in this process.
Almost everything edible, if not all, in Earth Kitchen is made from scratch. The kitchen is busy working on making fresh pasta, tortilla, ice cream, risotto, soup, etc., which results to a worry-free healthy dining. On your road to a healthy lifestyle, what you eat matters. And with Earth Kitchen around, eating healthy doesn’t have to taste awful.

The Food:

Mushroom Spring Rolls (Php 220)
Rate: 4/5
Shitake mushrooms trapped in these rolls are organic/naturally-produced. Together with peanuts, herbs and greens, Mushroom Spring Rolls reminded me of Vietnamese fresh rolls with a twist, brought by its hoisin dip.
Risotto Balls (Php 275)
Rate: 4/5
Small bites of Risotto Balls are categorized under the appetizers list. But for me, a ball is already rich and filling. Breaded and fried mushroom risotto balls are stuffed with mozzarella cheese, paired with tomato sauce. Its crust is thin and light, without any irritating oiliness.

Watermelon and Rocket Salad (Php 300)
Rate: 5/5
The photogenic colors of this Watermelon and Rocket Salad illuminated our eyes, drew us to taking more photos than expected. Arugula, edible flowers, pili nuts and homemade kesong puti wouldn’t leave a guilty feeling, only a refreshed palate. I couldn’t think of any other perfect dressing, its balsamic vinaigrette is truly a perfect choice.
Beef Bulgogi Soft Taco (Php 210/2pcs.)
Rate: 4/5
Earth Kitchen has a Korean side, which can be found in their Beef Bugogi Soft Taco. Somehow sweet boneless beef ribs, a little spicy kimchi rice in between, salad greens on top, and seaweeds for its final touch.
Braised Bacon (Php 580)
Rate: 5/5
Thick slab of Braised Bacon with red cabbage and marbled potatoes won’t give trouble to your diet, don’t worry. Its meat is lean and not fatty to scare you off. While in the process of chewing this Braised Bacon, all you can think of is to team up with a steaming cup of rice. Then, you have now reached your quota! Haha!
Earth Kitchen Ravioli (Php 400)
Rate: 4/5
A uniquely done combination of camote tops, white cheese, pili nuts, pomodoro sauce, basil, parmesan cheese, all for this Earth Kitchen Ravioli.
Milanese Risotto (Php 640)
Rate: 5/5
I’m sorry but I can’t ask you to end your Earth Kitchen dining without asking for a plate of Milanese Risotto. I’ve named a bunch of dishes you should try but please please don’t forget this. Deal? Saffron rice with parmesan and butter topped with a generous portion of organic braised beef short rib and gremalata any adult will appreciate easily.
Mango Yoghurt Shake (Php 130)
Got Heart Mix 3 (Php 210)
Got Heart Mix 3 – chia seeds, kale, apple, pineapple, cucumber and honey.
Tablea (Php 200)
Rate: 4/5
Your sweet tooth needs to be treated with Tablea: homemade carabao tablea ice cream, peanut butter and turon.

The Ambiance:

Sets of wooden tables and chairs give a backyard impression decorated with green grass from floor to ceiling. It also feels like having a picnic in an air-conditioned room, cooling your eyes with a sight of things green.
Together, O and I eat clean and achieve to live a healthier life. The advocacy of Earth Kitchen to do business the good way makes us patronize the brand, more than our love for their food. It’s not a surprise you will love the concept of Earth Kitchen instantly, just as much as we did.
