Weekend Food Choices Week 92: A Carnivore’s Take on Saving Planet Earth

Before Hubby went on his long out of town trip, we decided to have dinner at one of the restaurants carnivore foodies have been talking about for some time now.

Hubby and i enjoyed our dinner at ‘Cue, so a few days ago, when i met up for a dinner date with two of my good high school friends MS & HL to catch up, i was happy to be back.

After 10 years of not getting together, it’s funny how friends whose lives seemed more or less the same back in high school turn into an interesting diversity of personal and career paths.

HL is now working in the corporate world and in her spare time, interestingly teaches conversational English to foreigners. She is as dedicated to her family as she was when we were in HS. Her loved ones are very fortunate to have her.

I’ve always had great admiration for people, like these two friends of mine, who give up career opportunities to spend more time with family.

MS left the corporate world to be a full time mom to her two adorable sons. She now helps in her family’s tree farm founded by her dad 20 years ago, Marsse Tropical Timber, with the mission to develop sustainable tree farming in the Philippines. The farm was established to preserve our countries’ natural resources, provide local job opportunities, and promote ecological balance.

This environmental need is seen more than ever before as we now know that Mother Earth’s wrath will affect not only small struggling countries but the progressive ones as well. Our prayers go out to those affected by the devastation caused by the recent super storm.

It’s about time that we make our own contribution to help preserve the planet we live in. Efforts such as choosing home materials & furnitures from sustainable resources like the Marsse farm, or even as simple as patronizing reusable bags – as is my passion & advocacy, can, & will make a difference.

Let’s do our part so that the future generation will be able to enjoy their lives as well.

…we all know one of my simple joy in life is being able to dine in a good restaurant.

‘Cue, a privately owned and personally managed restaurant, offers a wide array of delicious meat main dishes.

During my first trip with Hubby, dinner started with the Charleston She Crab Soup (Php 260)

this thick bowl of flaked crab chowder with chives and dry sherry was very comforting

for our main dishes we ordered Smoked Bacon Carbonara (Php365)

a good pasta dish with house-made bourbon cream, mushroom and parmesan

and the star dish of the night, the Baby Back Ribs (Php 645 -half slab)

Slow baked then barbecued with their house made spice rub. We opted for the dry rub but if you’re a fan of the wet glaze, you can opt for this as well.

This half slab was very tender and passed our “easy to clean off the bones” test.

During my second trip to ‘Cue with my friends, we ordered the Hand Cut Charred Corned Beef (Php685), Caesar Salad Bowl (Php205 half order), & Bone Marrow and Steak Tacos (Php485) -sorry no photos. But don’t worry, I so loved these dishes especially their house-made, dark ale brined half-pound corned beef, that i vow i will be back for it.

…and next time ill be sure to capture the mouth watering dishes.
