Did you know that there’s a place just 2-3 hours from Manila where you can enjoy strawberry-picking? Feel the Baguio vibes at this newly opened strawberry farm in Alfonso, Cavite โ€” Queens Strawberry Farm is the first of its kind near the Metro!

But unlike the farms in Benguet where crops grow on the ground, here at Queens Strawberry Farm, they are planted vertically. The strawberries are planted on soil-filled tubes hanging on frame structures, utilizing every space in the farm.

Our timing wasn’t perfect for strawberry-picking though, as there aren’t a lot of fruits to pick yet. But it’s great that they have a restaurant which is also something nice to try. It also looked cute and aesthetic!

Our experience at Queens Strawberry Farm

We arrived around merienda time, yet, we ordered full meals. We came from our Batangas trip where we had our early lunch so we’re already hungry by the time we reach Tagaytay.

So for our meals we tried Queens Smoked Pork Belly Platter, Carbonara, Caesar Salad, and Strawberry Milkshakes. Everything was served in heaping portions that we had a hard time finishing all despite the cravings!

The Queens Smoked Pork Belly Platter alone serves 4-5 persons. Aside from the pork belly itself, it also had lots of smoked hungarian sausage and sauteed vegetables along with it. It’s already a complete meal in itself! Also served with a special sauce that’s oozing with flavors. And the crispy skin, oh well, we all loved it!

For their Carbonara, it was good and creamy, but nothing special. I’m guessing it lacked some spices, though the creaminess was there. It’s nice that it was served with garlic breads and serving is good for 2 persons.

The Caesar Salad is good for 2-3 persons. I loved that it had real strawberry slices! The lettuce was fresh and crunchy. It’s a breath of fresh air from all the fats and carbs on our table!

And since we’re in a strawberry farm, Strawberry Milkshake is one of the unmissable ones to try. Missing it would be unforgivable! It was so refreshing and sweetness is just right. It was served in huge jars garnished with strawberry slices.

We enjoyed the food as much as we enjoyed chitchatting. We haven’t seen each other for over a year so we had a lot of catching up to do. And since we’re only four, we were not able to finish everything. We just had it wrapped by the staff for take home.

It’s also worth mentioning their strict compliance with health safety protocols. Before entry, you need to fill-up a health declaration form, have temperature check, and hand sanitation. You cannot enter without facemask and face shield. They also do not allow children under 15, adults over 65, pregnant women, and those with health risks.

And what amazed me the most was that the plates and utensils are wrapped in plastic upon serving. They’re just so willing to go the extra mile in health safety! There were also enough distance between each table.

Of course, don’t forget the interiors and the overall look of the place! It’s so chic and artsy with lots of instagrammable corners. The place is so vibrant and colorful, with pink as the dominant color.

The restaurant is A-framed which is quite the trend lately. It’s usually seen in places with snow so that the snow will just slide through the roof and won’t get stuck on top. But yeah, we’re adopting it anyway because it looks pretty!

And now let me take you upstairs where alfresco dining spaces are situated. It’s as pretty as the inside look, but it could get really hot especially at midday. But could be a perfect dining setup during late afternoon and evening.

There are also alfresco dining spaces right beside the farm with a huge water fountain at the middle. Each dining table is enclosed in a cubicle (but not fully enclosed).
