Earth Hour 2009 at Adarna Food & Culture, Authentic Filipino Cuisine

My nephew (the son of my late brother, Oscar) graduated tonight with a degree of AB Political Science from Ateneo de Manila. Good thing his mom got a vacation leave from her work as a Special Education Teacher in the US. It is a cause for celebration not only for my nephew’s graduation but for his mom as well. Being a single mom for the past 10 years, she deserves a hearty congratulations for bringing up a wonderful son. I did her a great favor by choosing Adarna Food & culture, knowing my sister-in-law missed Filipino cuisine. For a minimum order of 5,000 pesos, we were entitled to a private function room that held memorabilia of old Filipino movie actors and actresses.
Adarna Food & Culture reminds me of our past Filipino heritage. It was conceived by partners Beth Angsioco and Chef Giney Villar who desired to show Filipino antiques and different Filipino flavors around the Philippines. The restaurant is like a replica Beth Angsioco’s Adarna house and the first restaurant for AHA-graduate Chef Giney Villar. The food and ambiance inspires me to appreciate Filipino cuisine of the past.
Tonight was Earth Hour so we made sure to eat most of our food before the clock struck at 8:30PM. Dishes were Batanes Yellow Rice Family Size made of Turmeric, garlic and a bit of pork flavors, Kaldereta, Pochero, Spring Rolls, Bangus Relleno, Tagalog Pochero with roasted eggplant dip, Fried vegetable lumpia, Chicken Relleno , Piassok and Seafood Special.
Before Earth Hour at the Graduation Dinner
Dinner continued on despite the darkened ambiance. What was left but to chit-chat with family members and relatives.
During Earth Hour, a Candle Lit Dinner
My sister-in-law decided to pool the orders in buffet style so we could sample all the flavors.

Adarna is such a lovely place for parties. You should experience authentic heirloom Filipino Cuisine with all the heirloom pieces scattered all over the restaurant.
