“Ang ganda!” (“It’s beautiful!”) That’s the first thing I said when they brought our food to the table. Well, aren’t those plates of food just pretty? What’s great is they’re not just lovely to look at, they’re healthy and delicious, too! Where did we enjoy this food? At Bohol Bee Farm! We’ve heard a lot of great things about the place so we decided to drop by before we left for the airport. Bohol Bee Farm is not just a bee farm but a bed and breakfast resort. Even if you’re not a guest at the resort, you can visit the place and eat at their restaurant. That’s what we did and it’s definitely one of the highlights of our Bohol trip last year.
I ordered their Honey-Glazed Chicken and Ren had the Spare Ribs. Both came with organic red rice topped with camote (sweet potato). And look at those colorful flowers on the side. Guess what, that’s the salad! It’s organic garden salad made with fresh edible flowers. It’s served with honey mustard dressing. I haven’t had flowers before for lunch so I was really excited to eat. 🙂 They also gave complimentary slices of camote bread with two types of spread – pesto and mango.
Everything was fresh and just wholesome. The meats were tender and full of flavor but not too sweet to my taste. The portion size is satisfying. You can order ala-carte or try their buffet. The dishes we had was a little over P200 each while their buffet lunch or dinner now costs P600.
We ended our hearty meal with another delightful treat – homemade avocado and malunggay (moringa) ice cream (P80) in a special cone made from cab-cab or casssava flour. A must-try! They have other interesting flavors like spicy ginger, durian, langka (jack fruit) and pandan.
The restaurant itself is very laid-back and relaxing. But of course! There are plants and trees all around and you have a great view of the ocean. Enjoy the breeze and watch the boats sailing by while waiting for your food.
Bohol Bee Farm also runs a store where you can buy healthy baked goods, spreads and other organic products, including beauty and wellness products. Be sure to check it out. Their products make great pasalubong!
Bohol Bee Farm is located at Dao, Dauis, Panglao Island, Bohol.
