The homegrown restaurant, The Wholesome Table, known for its healthy and creative menu that is proudly naturally sourced announced suspending its operations "until the world starts to normalize". It joins restaurants and food spots we will surely miss due to the pandemic.

/ 24 September 2020

This week, we’ve lost yet again a gem in the local dining industry with the suspension of The Wholesome Table’s operations. Although it reopened last June as the quarantine restrictions eased, supported with efforts such as promos, expansion of its delivery coverage, and a website for taking in orders, it still had to halt its business until “the world normalizes”.

In a post on Sept. 21, the homegrown restaurant announced the saddening news while leaving us with a note to continue living a healthy lifestyle. “The lockdown situation has deeply affected not only us but people all across the world as well. This includes the dining industry,” an excerpt from the post that reflects the truth in today’s economy. 

Several businesses have closed in the whole stretch of the lockdown and it has definitely affected industries after industries from entertainment, sports, dining, and more. And even though the said restaurant has been a widely recognized hotspot in Makati, it wasn’t able to dodge the threat of closure that’s been an inevitable fate for businesses nowadays.

The Wholesome Table was established by Bianca Araneta-Elizalde back in 2014 with a healthy, delectable, and lavish menu that is made with naturally-sourced sauces and condiments, as well as dishes made of organic meat and produce. Some of its top-rated dishes include Miso-Glazed Salmon, Chicken and Pork Adobo, and poke bowls made of organic greens and sea veggies.

They also offer fresh goods that are irresistibly appetizing, but that’s only the cherry on top! Most, if not all, are proudly made vegan-friendly with selections including gluten-free chocolate chip cookies, breakfast muffins, s’mores cupcakes, and more.

All branches of The Wholesome Table are taking an indefinite break including those found in Bonifacio Global City, Alabang Town Center, Salcedo Village, Power Plant, and Greenbelt. It joins the likes of Makati’s well-known coffee shop Local Edition, Chinese cuisine hotspot Emerald Garden, and Quezon City hotspot The Chocolate Kiss Cafe among the restaurants and food spots we will miss due to the pandemic.
