There was one restaurant in Bohol that fellow bloggers had suggested for me to try – Bohol Bee Farm.
Unfortunately, I was kind of disappointed a little when we weren’t able to have lunch there. The good thing about having a relative in Bohol – I was saved! When I suggested Bohol Bee Farm to my cousin, Kuya Jec, he decided to take us to the Bohol Bee Farm Café in the Island City Mall in Bohol. We couldn’t make it to Panglao since it was already dark, but at least I would be able to try their most famous salad – the Organic Garden Salad.
The Bohol Bee Farm is a famous resort and restaurant in Loboc.
What about the Organic Garden Salad is so interesting? Well, to be simple – this salad is literally made out of flowers. No, not a joke. Seriously. Flowers. Not those cake and icing types of flowers, real life flowers, the ones you smell and grow on the gardens and those that you give to your girlfriends or your mothers.
Yes! Which was why I was desperate to try it. Yes, I kind of ate gumamela when I was younger, but that’s not counted, especially because every little kid really does try eating gumamela at some point in their lives.
I’m not a big fan of vegetables and salad either so I wasn’t sure whether I’d like it or not.
Bohol Bee Farm Café or the Buzz, as it is called is small, but quite packed when we went there. They have traditional woven seats and couches, wooden tables and a selection of crafts along with a swing at the back. There were tables and chairs in the restaurant setting, but also the informal, tea-type table setting that we were able to get.
We didn’t order much because we just ate dinner, I just really wanted to taste the Organic Garden Salad that everyone was raving about. I also ordered Lemon Grass Tea.
Organic Garden Salad costs P140 for single serving and P480 for family size.
When the food came, I, of course was a little paranoid to try even if I was the one who ordered it. What if they hadn’t cleaned it well and it still had dirt from insects? Good thing, it didn’t have any of that sort.
The Organic Garden Salad of Bohol Bee Farm is actually delicious and it is a definite must try before leaving Bohol. It has a bitter taste at first, but once you start crunching on the leaves and petals or dip it into the yellow sauce, it leaves a very pleasant taste. Vegetarians will love the dish and will enjoy the new experience of feasting on actual flowers. This restaurant is one of the best places to eat in Bohol.
