Palwa Restaurant at Coco Farm

Palwa Restaurant's menu boasts an array of delicious native dishes with ingredients of vegetables and meat products from the Bohol Coco Farm’s natural farming endeavors. 

I love their Camote Top Splash and Veggie Burger.  The camote top (talbos ng kamote) contains substantial amounts of polyphenolics that protect the body from oxidative stress that breeds many diseases that include cardiovascular illnesses and cancer.  

Moreover, camote top is an excellent source of  protein, lipid, calcium, sodium, phosphorous, magnesium, potassium, sulfur, iron, copper, zinc, and manganese.  It is also a source of vitamin A, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin and ascorbic acid.

Incidentally, the Bohol Coco Farm will be hosting a 3-day Natural Farming Seminar with Andry Lim as resource speaker on February 28, 29 and March 1from 8am to 9pm. 

Aside from the essential applications of natural farming methods on horticulture and animal husbandry, attendees will be introduced to various herbal healing techniques by using indigenous plants and vegetation.

  1. I think I've heard of Bohol Coco Farm before. It's a major tourist destination right?

    BTW, I forgot to ask, are you a Boholano by birth or by choice?

    Have a lovely Valentine's Day.

    1. Moved here from Manila by choice, Photo Cache.

      Bohol Bee Farm is the big tourist attraction; whereas Bohol Coco Farm has only been recently gaining much attention as an agri-tourism site.

  2. This looks like a cool place to have an all natural meal, great setting. And thanks for visiting my blog!

      Many thanks!
