The Wholesome Table: Healthy Goodness without Compromising Flavor

    Our experience at The Wholesome Table


    Because of our busy schedules and also for practicality's sake, gone are the days when we would just dine out on a whim. We do, however, still love to treat ourselves to occasional indulgences.

    Every once in a while, we would pamper ourselves with unhurried dinners; taking our time to savor our food and enjoy leisurely bites.

    One restaurant that we kept a constant eye on is The Wholesome Table, located at Salcedo Village. We knew it was quite pricey that was why we were hesitant to go. 

    But one evening after a growling downpour, without any plan or whatsoever, we gave in and decided to pay The Wholesome Table a visit. 

    We made our way through the dark Salcedo street, got lost, and for a moment, felt that we wouldn't make it. But after a brief consultation with Waze, we finally found the elusive place.

    The Ambiance 


    The restaurant is enclosed in a small space, giving it an air of exclusivity while still remaining very inviting. The walls are almost spartan, save for some paintings and decors. It was homey, comfortable, and somehow familiar.

    The Organic Movement


    The restaurant was named as such because it specializes in serving organic food, supposedly healthier than regular produce that is raised or cultivated with chemicals.

    Part of the never-ending quest for health and wellness seems to be to go organic. It may not be the panacea for physical illnesses but at least consuming organic food somehow lessens the guilt of indulging in rich and savory dishes. 

    The food at The Wholesome Table 


    Here at The Wholesome Table, once the menu is handed, the servers would immediately give recommendations on drinks, appetizers, and mains. 

    Pasta at The Wholesome Table

    The drinks are combinations of all-healthy stuff. While the names might sound like concoctions from a science experiment, the drinks actually taste nice. We had the “Be Delightful’ drink, a combination of carrot, apple, and orange for a good dose of antioxidants.

    For the mains, there's a good selection of pasta, meats, and seafood. We ordered the chicken salad for appetizers. It had generous chunks of chicken on a bed of crisp mixed greens. It has the goodness of freeze-dried blueberries, apples, walnuts, celery, Parmesan cheese, and blueberry vinaigrette. It was well-dressed and definitely whets the appetite.

    The Gambaretti Arrabiatta is also a winner. It's got a good helping of shrimps, bacon with red tomato sauce and topped with a generous helping of Parmesan cheese. It had a perfect balance of acidity, fresh seafood flavor, and saltiness. 

    Meatloaf at The Wholesome Table

    For the mains, we ordered meatloaf -- two thick slices of rich meat over mashed potatoes smothered with a rich and creamy bacon mushroom gravy. It was good and very comforting. The mashed potatoes were also flavorful but I had to have my meatloaf with rice -- take note, brown rice -- so it was obviously a heavy meal. 

    But the one dish that we had our eyes on was the pork chops. We ordered 2 thick slabs of meat and had it sliced into chunks. It was served with slices of what seemed to be roasted potatoes. It was every meat lover's delight -- perfectly tender, seasoned well, and with a nice pink core. If there was one dish that we would always go back to at the Wholesome Table, it was this. 

    Our verdict


    The Wholesome Table does not pretend to be a pocket-friendly restaurant. The food here has "expensive" generously sprinkled all over it. But while the price of the food may not be justifiable to some diners, I believe it’s better to let the quality of the food speak for the restaurant. 

    The Wholesome Table is for those who are looking for a place to enjoy excellent and healthy food in a quiet and relaxing setting. 

    For our fairly simple meal of salad, pasta, and meats, we paid Php2,210++. It’s definitely worth an occasional visit for those who would like to have a dose of healthy organic food, not just to fill the belly but to nourish the body.
