Last January 21, my family and other relatives decided to go to Tagaytay to enjoy the long weekend. We stayed in Bali Village Resort, which is just walking distance to The Mushroom Burger restaurant. My cousins and I decided then to try the place.
Mushroom burgers are not new to me, as I have tried one before in ECHOstore. The small sized burger was priced at 200 Pesos each. I quite liked the taste; however, for a student like me, it was a bit too pricy. Maybe it was because the store was in The Fort or maybe just because organic foods are expensive.
However, my experience in The Mushroom Burger was different. The place was not as sophisticated as ECHOstore. The atmosphere was casual. However, what really surprised me was the price of their burgers. The prices ranged from 30 to 100 Pesos. I cannot believe that an organic food can be this affordable. I tried the Royal Mushroom Burger that has an egg in it and found it satisfying.
The Mushroom Burger is a testament that organic foods do not have to be expensive. Organic foods can even taste better than other non-organic foods. Moreover, it is much healthier and comes from productions that do not contaminate the environment. Hence, it is beneficial to our body and to our surroundings. Organic foods even sustain our environment since the farms it came from do not use harmful chemical and pesticides, which are two of the many things that destroy the environment.
I hope that Filipinos find the importance of organic foods and start supporting such foods. The cost maybe too big for now but the long-term results will definitely something beneficial for everyone.
