Bataan Foodserye | Unbelievably Bang-for-the-buck Dining at Saverde

saverde bataan

This was part of the April 2017 media tour organized by the Tourism Office of Bataan. 

Saverde Coffee Shop in the town of Abucay has been drawing in people for over two years with its budget meals. If the other restaurants in the Foodserye don't cut it to prove Bataan can hold it's own in the food department, the Saverde could give you a run for your money. Literally.

THE PLACE
Located along Gabon St., Saverde has two dining areas. One: the snug coffee shop with its muted palette, and the other: a room with an explosion of pastel pink. The coffee shop's has a somber ambiance so I guess if you're with your barkada, opt for the pink room where you can be loud as you can. There's a couple of outdoor seating too.

THE FOOD
You wouldn't believe how good the food is at Saverde. And I'm not just saying that. It's actually really, really good. For example, take the buttermilk toast – a thick slice of creamy and buttery toasted white bread best eaten while still warm. It's utter perfection, I tell you. And it's just Php25!

Then, there's the tapsilog (Php75) – a classic Pinoy dish that's an amalgamation of the words tapa (beef jerky), sinangang (fried rice), and itlog (fried egg). Saverde's version has the fried rice wrapped in scrambled egg, with the tapa resting invitingly on top. I try to avoid eating beef, but this tapa was just irresistible. I could almost – almost – alternate this with grilled liempo for dream forever-meal. That's really saying something.

Other dishes include Chicken in a Basket (Php130), Taco Pizza (Php120), Ham and Egg Sandwich (Php55), Creamy Carbonara (Php55) and Nachos with Salsa and Cheese (Php75). I mean, can you believe those prices? I could dine here every day and not go broke!

Aside from these dishes, Saverde also has its share of original beverages such as their homemade Three-Layer Milk Tea (Php50). Desserts like the Snow Ice (Php80) which comes in Chocolate, Strawberry, Honey Dew, Mango, and Taro flavors are also available.

THE SERVICE
The food here are all original recipe and are freshly made. The ambiance, particularly of the pink room where we dined, was a little cloistered and "loud" for my liking. But this fact was overshadowed by how great the food was so I guess that comment is moot. The staff are efficient and waste no time in making sure your orders and special requests are taken care of. Overall, a great place to have your meal.

FINAL THOUGHTS
Saverde's brand of dining is one that appeals not only to the youth who's looking to not burn through their allowance but also to the adult who wants a great meal for just under a hundred bucks. If we have a Saverde here in Angono, I might just subsist on the tapsilog-buttermilk toast combo. That's totally a hundred bucks well spent!
