We featured Jetro and his resto, Van Gogh is Bipolar. The crew who shot the story loved the interiors and enjoyed the mood-altering food Jetro prepares. Another one who has become a Bipolar fan is Iza Calzado. Here are some of her thoughts on why she loves it there:
“Like in most cases, food can be the best cure for the body. Learning to eat what helps you stabilize your mood is a great tool to have in life. I LOVE VGIB because it’s quirky and quaint. It holds a special place in my heart because my mom was bipolar and every time I’m there I wish that I cold have known about mood altering food when she was alive.”
“(My) favorite main dish is Salmon belly with black mountain rice (called “Roosevelt”, I think) which I eat like a burrito. I love using my hands when I eat! Ha ha! I love the salmon dish because it make me happy and it’s really good.
“Mel Gibson’s Darkest Sin” for dessert. The “darkest sin” has this certain warmth right after you take the shot and spoonful of chocolate. It’s like a sugar rush or some kind of adrenalin rush! Ha ha!
