Grace Park Farm-to-Table Restaurant by Margarita Fores at One Rockwell Makati

Grace Park in One Rockwell Makati is probably one of the firsts that started the farm-to-table concept in the metro. Owned by one of the country's most established chef and restaurateur, Margarita Fores of the Cibo fame, Grace Park promises quality food using only the freshest ingredients straight from the farm. Their menu changes very so often, (depending on what is freshly available from their suppliers) but also consists of mainstay favorites raved by their patrons and guests. 

A staple in most farm-to-table restaurants, Grace Park literally elevates the classic salad with a stack of their 3-page Organic Field Greens Salad (P280) drizzled with honey-dijon dressing. We were not much into the mustard dressing, but enjoyed the extra crunch from the layers of flatbread crisps.

For mains, we had the Lamb Adobo Rice (P620) which is braised lamb served on a bed of garlic brown rice. The lamb adobo was perfectly cooked to tenderness with sweet and savory sauce drippings over the garlicky organic brown rice. Serving size can already be shared by two. 

Another equally stellar dish during our visit was Grace Park's meaty Muscovado Beef Belly (P540). A huge slab of juicy tender beef glazed with sweet muscuvado sugar. It has just the right amount of fat trimmings which means more meaty goodness for us. A must-try! 

Grace Park also has fresh and dry pasta for their pasta selections. We ordered for this dry semolina pasta of Spaghettini Uni, Live Shrimp, Red Wine Tomatoes & Rucola (P550) which I didn't enjoy, mainly because I don't eat uni. 

Instead, I focused my attention on this plate of Fresh Papardelle with Salted Egg and Asparagus in Truffle Cream (P560). I have always been a cream sauce lover for pasta, but this just fell short of my expectations. I couldn't taste much of the salted egg, while the cream sauce was also thin and bland. 

We ended our meal with Grace Park's signature Eton Mess (P275). A deconstructed pavlova of meringue and cream with fresh mangoes and strawberries. This could be too sweet for one, but perfectly right when shared with the group. 

Grace Park Menu:

Although I didn't enjoyed much of our pasta orders, I exceptionally liked our mains of Lamb Adobo Rice and Muscovado Beef Belly. Prices may be on the higher side, but Grace Park guarantees the quality of every dish and the freshness of their ingredients.

Cedar Salon Balayage with Schwarzkopf Professional in San Juan #MeTimeAtCedar

Some people say: Your life may not be perfect, but your hair can be. Hair is often referred to as the crowning glory of a person, hence, it must be well taken care of . One cardinal rule with women: no one is allowed to rush, interrupt or cheapen her salon experience. Women understand how 'holy' and precious these hours of beautifying/pampering themselves are, to help build self-confidence, and at the same time, improve one's state of well-being.

I am guilty of breaking this rule most of the time. Aside from having the lame excuse of "not having time", I don't think I'll be able to give my 100% trust in someone to cut, style, or color my hair other than myself. Yes, I've been cutting and coloring my hair on my own since college. I just feel more secure when I personally do my hair as I know that should anything go wrong, there's no one else to blame but myself.

Finding a good hair salon for hair coloring services can be quite difficult- you have to consider the products they use and the expertise of their hairstylist. Fortunately, Cedar Salon in Wilson, San Juan attempts and succeeds to fit the bill. No more worrying about color damaged hair as Cedar Salon only uses products made and used by professionals. Coupled by a team of highly trained hairstylists, one can fully surrender to an ultimate relaxation and holistic pampering experience.
