The Pig Pen Restaurant Review

Two weeks ago, just when Christmas/New Years' rush is settling down, I've decided to book a Hotel at Nuvali Sta. Rosa Laguna for a quick family getaway/Staycation outside the city just to relax and rejuvenate ourselves after the crazy Christmas Break when Kyle got sick and we spent the holidays doing nothing but worrying about his health.

Thanks to my dear friend Marge who gifted me an overnight stay at Hotel Seda and it was one of the best place to stay with the family without the long drive!  It took us an hour and a half to arrive there.  The place was still packed but I like how Nuvali was developed in a way families can have fun even with the crowd.

I did a lot of research on some good restaurants to try at Nuvali.  Pig Pen Restaurant popped on my browser.  Though I know they have a second branch at Makati, I didn't bother wanting to try it at Makati because we seldom head there....and of course TRAFFIC.

After spending time at an Arcade and Bookstore, Kyle was ready to eat and the place wasn't packed!  We immediately ordered the dishes recommended by the server.

Papadum (Indian Tortilla) Nachos topped with Beef
A pretty unique way to enjoy your nachos in my opinion.  The chips are a tad bit oilier than regular nachos but they are so crunchy you'll forget about the oil and just enjoy this appetizer!

Grilled Porkchop

Grilled porkchop served with red cabbage salad.
If you are not a fan of coriander (like me), this dish may be too much for you!  But Thankfully, the pork itself does not have the strong coriander (herb-like) taste.  I just steered away from the sauce.

Pork Belly Kimchi
Slow-cooked pork belly with the added twist of Kimchi sauce.  I find this dish extremely appetizing because we love Kimchi!  It wasn't that spicy and the Kimchi taste did not overwhelm the origina taste of Pork Belly.  NOT BAD!

Mushroom Truffle
A creamy mushroom truffle pasta that will shoot your calorie count up but your smile will go as big as a kid who says CHEESE!

I love this dish!

Happy and Busog Couple!
