4th Wedding Anniversary At The Purple Owl, Tagaytay


I'm not a big fan of marriage and the idea of getting married. Yes, while others are busy planning on their dream wedding, I was busy living my life. I'm not against marriage as a matter of fact I always cry whenever I attend one its because I came from a broken family making me a non-fairy tale believer. Oh, don't pity me because I didn't took it the hard way instead I make use of the situation as guidance in becoming a better person.

I'm guessing that a lot of you are now confused because I stated that I'm not into marriage and all those stuff but as per the blog title: "4th Wedding Anniversary." Fortunately, boyfriend proposed and made a promise that eventually swept me off my feet and made me say yes. It was a simple civil marriage at Quezon City hall dated April 5, 2010 and only a few family member was able to witness it. Anyway, I wasn't really expecting that we'll be celebrating our 4th wedding anniversary because we all know that in life there are circumstances that will test you as a person and as a couple. I'm glad that we made it through making our anniversary celebration a memorable one.

Enough of our love history and let's go on with the celebration, shall we.

I was actually the one who made the dinner reservation at The Purple Owl a month before our anniversary. The management actually stated on their Facebook page to make reservations 3 to 4 days prior to the event but I decided to reserve a month before the event just for convenience.

Since we are residing in Quezon City and our dinner will be on Tagaytay, hubby and I decided to leave Quezon City at around 10 in the morning of April 5, 2014 in order for us to also find a place to stay before heading to dinner.

Before I continue, I just want to apologized for the quality of the photos because our phone camera wasn't able to capture how wonderful the place is.

Our Dinner Table
While waiting for the food to be served, Grace, our server, said that we can look around the place and even seat at the chair situated on the gazebo. Since it was our first time, we happily obliged on her suggestion and just enjoyed the beautiful scenery of the place.

Anyway, enough with the scenery and let's move forward to the full course dinner itself and please bear with me with regards to the name of the food for I already forgot them.

Chocolate Fondue
This chocolate fondue was first served on our white, pink and gold themed dinner table. It was filled with fresh fruits - apples, grapes, and melons - and heart shaped mini marshmallows. Just imagine how romantic it was to sit on a couch next to your loved one while eating fruits and marshmallows dipped on a chocolate as the Tagaytay air wrapped you with its not-to-cold temperature.

Soup
Next was this soup, I'm not quite sure if it was a squash soup or a pumpkin soup but it was the best soup that we've ever tasted. The soup was tasty and creamy while the bacon bits gives it a texture that really goes well together.

Fresh Salad
Of course, there must be a fresh salad and when I say fresh, I really do mean it. No, the salad  dressing is not your typical caesar or thousand island or vinaigrette dressing that we are all familiar. The salad dressing that was served on the side tasted like yogurt with bits of maybe bacon. Whatever, it was so fresh that I really enjoyed eating salad for the first time.

Main Course
The main course is really do die for, tuna (I guess) with kernel corn and fresh pesto pasta. Yes, I know that their pesto paste is fresh because I'm a huge fan of pesto pasta and The Purple Owl's version is way to different than the others.

Hot Cocoa

Dessert
For the last and final course, hubby opted for kapeng barako while I choose to sip on some hot cocoa. Our hot drinks were served with these sumptuous desserts which names I really can't recall, I'm sorry. The food and the hot drinks really complimented each other.

Because I am such a loser, I asked Ms. Grace if I can have my main course and dessert for take out. I know, I'm sorry but I was too full to eat everything but I would want to waste such food. As of this writing, I actually regret why I didn't include the leftover salad for take-out, hahahaha.

Oh well, I highly recommend The Purple Owl especially to all those who wants to experience eating fresh and organic dishes. They also offer breakfast and lunch as well as parties. Hubby and I are actually considering on celebrating the birthday of our kids there but we need to think about it since almost every person invited lives in Quezon City. Nevertheless, we will be going back for more and maybe try their breakfast and lunch offering.

    1. The price will actually depend on the time that you'll wish to dine. It'll be better if you'll email them directly for inquiries.

      As for our dinner, it cost at around 3k for a full meal course which is already good for two including the set-up and all that jazz.

  6. Extravagant wedding is not my thing too. Although I'm not yet married (civil nor church wedding), I'm not really interested to have my wedding with all those fancy stuff. I rather use the money to travel instead of a one day celebration.

    I want to try that restaurant too. It's in hype but I heard you need a reservation to dine here?

    1. Yes, you need to have your reservation at least 3 days prior to the event. Although I'm not sure if the 3 days reservation is still okay.
