Almost a month after our college mini-reunion, I’m still craving for Sonya’s Garden buffet lunch. BIG TIME.

I’ve been to Sonya’s twice already. First was in 2009 during C and I’s first out-of-town trip to try their spa treatments. We went back a year later to buy some “pasalubong” spanish bread in their bakery. Both times we did not eat nor stayed there overnight. I wasn’t really interested to try their in-house food simply because I’m not really a fan of vegetables and “healthy” food. When in Tagaytay, the first food that comes to mind is that ever-sinful-but-super-yummy-BULALO. 🙂

So when I had this opprotunity to experience what dining is Sonya’s is about, I was so excited. Moreso, it’s my chance to reconnect with my college buddies who I haven’t seen in years!

We were there on a Sunday on a long weekend and the place was packed. Good thing, we had prior reservations so even if we were late for about an hour, we were immediately seated. Upon entering Sonya’s Garden’s dining hall, we were already awed by the cool ambience and relaxed vibe. White is the motif of the hall and even the tablecloths are white. I kept on thinking, they must have a hard time with the laundry. hehe.

the plates and table set-up at Sonya's Garden evokes lots of space, air, and nostalgia. Can't help but wonder how they laundry the sheets to achieve this!

We were  served Dalandan Juice which is the most refreshing juice of it’s kind I have ever tasted. I don’t really like dalandan because it’s too bitter for my taste but this one’s so refreshing and a little sweet. Please note that everything that will be served to us are refillable so I think I gulped 5 glasses of this throughout our lunch. Hehe.

The next thing served in our table is the salad. I didn’t see any rose petals in there but our greens came with a whole lot of different “sides” such as fruits, nuts, egg, etc. I don’t really like eating greens but the ones served to us are really fresh and super delicious. I could probably eat this the whole day! 🙂

I love the veggie salad. Served separately so you can choose which ones you like to enjoy your salad
The pasta spread - either of the red and white sauce is so delicious! I also love the salmon belly!
dessert is taragon tea and chocolate cake – perfect with fresh mint leaves!

I loooooove everything that were served for us. Leaves you a full, refreshed feeling afterwards – without the guilt, mind you! I will definitely go back. For Php 650 per head, it’s all worth a try. 🙂
