    Hi and Good day,
    So nice of you to share this topic, Actually , I really dont like toge but when I tried Alfafa.
    All I knew is it was just a thin toge (hehehe) but when I tasted and tried it. Its was so delicious and nutrious,
    And now from you , I’ve found out that this can be grown unto our own house thanks to you, However mind if I ask where can I buy some seeds to start them grow? Where in Taguig.

    Thank n Regards,

    Hi Connie,

    I love alfalfa, too. Try eating at Uncle Cheffy (Eastwood) and order cheese cheese pizza or any pizza. On the side, they serve unlimited alfalfa, lettuce and diced tomato & onions. Cheers!

    Connie, I saw that movie when it came out and would tease my husband by calling him Alfalfa whenever his hair would be sticking up lol In Evan’s pre-school one time they did a healthy snack with bagels by making faces using different veggies and using alfalfa as hair. Masarap ang alfalfa sa sandwiches din, making it crunchy. Before I could never imagine having veggies in a sandwich aside from the usual lettuce, onion, cucumber, mushroom and pickles – alfalfa was a pleasant surprise.

    Hi Connie, I’ve bought some seeds from Life’s Harbest, and so far I’m happy with the growth results of their seeds. I have yet to try their alfalfal seeds, since I love using alfalfa for sandwiches. It’s a great idea to grow them instead of buying from the groceries. thanks for this post!

    hi, great blog here ms connie. it’s my first visit. i too adore that little rascal movie. however, i am not sure if that Dear Darla pizza by Yellow cab is an original. As far as I know, the origin of that thin rolled pizza with arugula and alfalfa sprouts is in C Italian restaurant in Clark Field Pampanga, it was a creation of Chef Chris Locher. But I stand corrected if I am at fault with that info. Just my personal knowledge. I noticed that so many restaurants started to offer their own versions. I was able to purchase a jar around 500 gms or so of alfalfa seeds from edsa garden house years ago.

    • Hi, Laine. There is nothing in the post that says Dear Darla is the first and original thin rolled pizza with alfalfa sprouts. Yellow Cab was, however, the first to use “Dear Darla” for a pizza name. If, as you say, Locher was the first to make thin rolled pizza with alfalfa sprouts, he did not make alfalfa sprouts go mainstream in the Philippines — Dear Darla did that which was really the gist of the two paragraphs just above and below the video. :)

    Hi Connie. May I know where you buy alfalfa seeds in Taguig? Are you able to grow them?
