Known for preparing fresh, organic food, Wholesome Table has been our go to for healthy yet delicious finds. When eating their food, you can be sure that you are consuming good nutrients, fresh produce, and no preservatives. Bianca Elizalde, Wholesome Table’s founder, has been a long-time advocate for wellness and healthy living. She herself switched her lifestyle to being more mindful of what she consumes, often eating plant-based and gluten-free.
Her goal was to give Filipinos options and the ability to find healthy food, with ease. Many diners think that eating well means flavourless food, but Wholesome Table has simultaneously proven them wrong and become a favourite of many. Now, they have revamped their menu to introduce new soon-to-be favourites!
“Right now you’ll find a lot of Latin inspired dishes - like our ultimate paella mariscos, grilled pulpo, and the chicken barbacoa with chimichurri - and some Middle Eastern flavours on our new menu too. We’ve got a Moroccan chicken bowl which has been quite popular, a lovely hummus, and a merguez sausage plate with a delicious labneh on the side. We’ve also added duck on the menu - a classic duck confit on a bed of pomme puree, which is a favourite of mine,” says Elizalde.
When creating a new menu she says: “the sales mix (which items were popular and which weren’t) definitely plays the biggest role in deciding what to remove from the menu. Seasonality and supply issues are also some things we take into consideration when it comes to creating a new menu and sourcing organic.” In truth, she says that customers can expect a bit more of an elevated dining experience. "The dishes are more well-composed. We’re presenting them differently, and there are so much more flavours we’re playing around with".
