Makati, being the major business district of the country is synonymous to fast paced lifestyle. Everybody seems to be always moving in a hurry trying to beat time. My recent discovery along Chino Roces St. Cor. Malugay is such an irony to its busy surroundings.
As I was waiting for the green light at this Intersection, The name of the place " SATINKA NATURALS" caught my attention. Initially, I thought they were selling beauty products, but I got a glimpse of tables and chairs as I drove off. They were in fact, also a restaurant serving organic and healthy dishes.
I was not disappointed on my first visit. The interiors were nothing fancy, with furniture made from reclaimed wood. Displayed on one corner are home care products also made from natural organic raw materials. A board displaying the daily specials is next to it, but you can always rely on their menu for the regular offering.
|Basil Crusted Baked Chicken|
I was able to try the Basil Crusted Baked Chicken, which was served with a spicy salsa and mountain rice, complemented with a pumpkin soup and fresh green salad. For a meal that costs a little more than two hundred pesos, It was worth it. I was so happy with the food that I went back again a few minutes later with a friend for another meal and dessert.
They have a wide selection of beverages, from freshly brewed teas and coffee. I got myself the mango mint juice which was naturally sweetened.
As I was eating, I suddenly felt the world slowing down with the soothing music and the comforting food. It's a relaxing and filling escape in the city. A perfect way to end the busy day!
By the way, the name SATINKA, might come across as an exotic foreign sounding name, but its actually the compressed Talagalog words, "SA ATIN KA".
