The Ostrich Farm; healthy never tasted this good

In the movie, Inside Out, there is this one character called “Disgust.” One of the five emotions that exists inside the mind of Riley (the main child character), and her main task is to basically keep Riley from being poisoned—physically and socially. Whenever Riley was presented with something strange, like broccoli, for example, Disgust takes over and stops her from even taking a bite.

Apparently everybody has their own version of disgust, but I think mine has the worst timing—EVER. Especially during those times I need her the most… which has led me to try exotic and sometimes disgusting dishes.

Remember how everyone says “it tastes like chicken” whenever they try something new, and you wonder if they’ve ever really tried chicken once you’ve tried it?

Because Digust wasn’t there to stop me I’ve tried, horsemeat, goat meat, dog meat (adobo)  (although no one told me until I had a couple of spoonfuls) frogs, worms (tamilok) and other food which they just call delicacies, for lack of a better word, I think.

You see when trying out new dishes, I think being clueless helps and not knowing what you are actually eating prevents any preconception or weird ideas of how it would taste like.

Recently, however, I was glad disgust wasn’t on my mind when I got invited to a restaurant visit to the Ostrich Farm. Although I know how an ostrich looked like, I tried not to think about it and rather just focus on how it would taste. Afterall this was one dish no one said would taste like chicken.

The Ostrich Farm is located at Cluster D Unit 26 inside the Blue Bay Walk,  I was literally looking for a farm when I went inside the  Blue Bay Walk,  not knowing that I would actually dine in a restaurant that serves ostrich as their main meat ingredients. The moment I stepped inside I fell in love with the homey interiors with green walls, (green, being my favorite color), and its surroundings makes great for a cozy afternoon.

I was 30 minutes late when I arrived at the venue (because of the heavy traffic) the first thing that Ms, Kristine Lim (The Ostrich Farm, owner) offered was the Detox water,  Cheese Balls amd Garden Salad.

Since I am on a diet, The Detox Water (php188) was a welcome sign for me and I loved that they (Kristine) actually care for their dining customers' health.You can pick your own freshies or go all-in with mint leaves, basil leaves, cucumber, lemon, orange, strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, green apple and apple.

The next thing that they have served are their Ostrich burger bestsellers.

The Bigbird Ostrich burgers, actualy tasted like beef on a sweet side, it was juicy, delicious and tender. It has BLT, pickles, caramelized onion, chilicon and mushrooms.

The Top Mushroom Burger also has BLT, pickles, caramelized onions, mushrooms and cheese sauce which I loved, all their burgers has french fries on the side. 

If you are on a diet and would want to skip the meat, ostrich meat is the better alternative. Because it is rich in proteins and contains more iron than beef, lamb, turkey, chicken and pork. Ostrich meat resembles beef in taste and looks, but is very low in calories, fat and cholesterol, and the best thing is it tastes good.

The Ostrich Farm also serves the best Rice Pairs, Pastas,  buffalo wings and desserts. Go ahead and indulge.

I suggest that its best to visit The Ostrich Farm after office hours, you have to get the best view of the Blue Baywalk and its vicinity from 6pm onwards.
