La Tienda de Tuy, Batangas

I am a fan of healthful restaurants, so when I was in Batangas for some time, I definitely agreed to visit one. The restaurant I went to is called La Tienda de  Tuy (Tuy is between the towns of Nasugbu and Balayan). It is located inside Hacienda Zabarte, a farm that uses orga-ponics (organic + hydroponics) to grow its plants. Since the vegetables served are organically grown and freshly harvested in the backyard, the menu is definitely a hit to me. Aside from the food, the place is also appealing. Because it is located inside a farm, there are trees and plants, and cool breeze.

My friends and I ordered Grilled Chicken Burger Open Sandwich (supposedly in wheat bread), Grilled Chicken Meal (with salsa made of chopped tomato, onion, and apple; served with soup and vegetable salad), Grilled Chicken Salad (with honey and mustard sauce), Tuna Pasta with Okra (my choice!), and of course, Kapeng Barako (don’t ever leave Batangas without trying this strong coffee). We were also served bread with balsamic vinegar and Parmesan dip as appetizer.

Thank you to my new friends and co-teachers, Mady and Hershey, as well as to our driver and tour guide, Hertz! 🙂

La Tienda de Tuy is open daily from 8am to 8pm. Visit it in Hacienda Zabarte, K. 102, Brgy. Guinhawa, Tuy, Batangas, Philippines. Contact number is 09163977898.
