The Pig and Palm: How To Enjoy This Michelin-Star Restaurant Without Going Broke
The Pig and Palm Cebu is a pretty intimidating restaurant and it has every right to be. Considering a Michelin-starred chef owns it, you’d think the restaurant is expensive. But with the right recommendations, it doesn’t have to be.
My apologies to the chef and the people behind this establishment. My photos do not do any justice to how actually luscious the dishes were. To make up for this, I have included some photos from the restaurant’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.
My husband promised to surprise me on our first wedding anniversary. After checking in at Marco Polo Plaza Cebu, we got ready for our dinner date at The Pig & Palm. To be honest, it’s been on my list of places to visit ever since a friend told us about its existence. But after reading about the restaurant, I hesitated. I thought it would be costly to try their dishes.
Michelin-star chef Jason Atherton and his wife Irha own the restaurant. It is the chef’s 16th restaurant under The Social Company, three of which have Michelin stars. Chef Atherton trained under chefs Gordon Ramsay and Ferran Adrià.
So when our GrabCar parked outside The Pig and Palm Cebu location, I knew there was no turning back. We would have to be careful about the dishes we order, or else we’d end up washing dishes on our anniversary.
