The Pig and Palm: A Feast for the Senses

The Pig and Palm is the first Filipino restaurant from Michelin-starred British chef Jason Atherton and his wife Irha Atherton. As the name applies, the restaurant offers a modern Spanish tapas menu with a focus on pork dishes with an adjoining bar serving cocktails and bar snacks.

Their menu has a wide array of pig-based plates for Weekend Brunch, Lunch and Dinner to choose from. Few weeks ago, I was out with some media friends for a post-event activity with our gracious hosts. It was totally an indulgent lunch that left us so full to the brim.

Here’s what we had for lunch and you’ll know why it was such a sumptuous lunch 🙂

Cauliflower salad, parmesan, parsley, walnut

The restaurant truly stood by its goal to bring “a taste of Spanish gastronomy to Cebu in an informal, contemporary environment.” The whole lunch experience was filled with so much flavors and spices in every meal that you rarely get from any other restaurant. And I must say, the whole plating was purely done out of love! It’s like a work of art and a masterpiece in one that you have second thoughts of eating it because it’s just too beautiful! Lols

Definitely, The Pig and Palm is a feast for the senses 🙂 It may be quite expensive but trust me, you’re in for a treat 🙂
