Why EarthOrigins Quezon City Serves Lechon

With its look from the outside, EarthOrigins Marketplace+Cafe may be another boutique shop for vegans and organic food lovers who campaign for veggies while casting meat off the table.

However at the launching of the new branch of EarthOrigins in Quezon City, it clearly presented itself as an inclusive marketplace for vegans and those who eat protein-rich meat as part of their keto diet.

Mr. Rman Lorenzo, the bubbly owner of EarthOrigins, scored that there is some sort of misconception about organic goods which should not be limited to fruits and vegetables only.

Surprisingly in this boutique - I love to call it that way for its intimate vibe, they serve chicken, pork and beef on top of the classic organic produces that we know. Yes, there is lechon and lechon kawali on the menu! And the more you dig into the ingredients of their dishes, the more you'll genuinely love this place.

A special item on the menu is lechon with thyme dip. The pig used for lechon are specifically raised in South Cotabato. Rman shared that down there in the rural Cotabato,  pigs eat husk which is the outer skin of rice grains. Before the pigs are turned into food, there is a two-week detoxifying period to make sure that the pigs are healthy when they become a blessing to the hungry mankind.
The first floor of the two-storey boutique is a grocery shop with an outdoor area for special promotional displays and an indoor area for frozen foods, shelves for both food and non-food items, space for demo pop up booths, comfort room, and cashier spot. 

On the second floor are additional shelves for more goodies and the cafe restaurant that could serve as a regular restaurant and an events place. It can accommodate up to 70 persons.

The vibe inside EarthOrigins is quite similar to that of Gaia, the restaurant in Sagada which was the shooting location for the movie "That Thing Called Tadhana". Both religiously offer organic goods. 

I have to applaud how EarthOrigins designed the interior of the branch. The minimal amount of green ornaments, classic windows, and wooden shelves complement each other to create a rustic indoor landscape.  It is prefect for the weekend or for weekday evenings when you  just want to detoxify from your stressful office life.  

One more thing, there is no form of bold statement around the place saying it is strictly for organic goods. Less is more, indeed. And this makes the place radiating a light, positive, and happy color. When I left the vicinity of this organic shop plus cafe, it is not the organic theme that was running in my thoughts but its care for a longer life for everyone reaching its doors.
