Restaurant
“The Little Green Kitchen's Village Chefs is all about serving the favorite regional Filipino and Asian dishes of my family and friends. I like to use healthy ingredients and at present organic vegetables from my edible landscape. After decades of training and cooking these dishes for my family all of my cooks have mastered them to perfection and can whip up any of these “favorites" even in my absence. So I figured, why not gather and serve all of these “favorite recipes" in a homey gate away that's just a convenient five minutes away from downtown Tacloban?”

Point of Interest
“Awesome experience! Take a van to Polompon (about 3 hours) and then a ferry to Kalanggaman island (about an hour). You can sleep in a tent overnight or just go for a day trip. Take some of the best pictures available, of the famous sandbar!”
