about our food

“clean food, whole food, slow food —

in our effort to tread lightly on this earth”


here at la terrasse we want to bring you only the best that palawan has to offer, and in a limited capacity, from other parts of the country.

we make all our sauces from scratch and all our own soup stocks without any additives or powders or cubes and definitely no MSG. if we can avoid it, we do not use anything from the can, our tomato sauce and relishes are made only from the freshest ingredients, our vegetables, whenever possible, are sourced from organic growers or from our own organic gardens.

 we only use organic or free range chickens or organic native chickens for all our chicken dishes and soup stocks, our meats are sourced locally and whenever possible, organic as well.

no we do not use meat tenderizers.

our seafood is bought fresh daily from the local market trying to ensure that they are caught legally without any danger to the environment or to the fishermen themselves.

we do not buy nor serve live fish or lobsters, as often they are caught or grown under questionable circumstances.

we hope you appreciate our efforts to keep our carbon footprint as small as possible,

wishing that you enjoy the place and the food!!

bon appetit !
