Greens Vegetarian Restaurant and Cafe

Right before my gym-ing session, I ensured that I am in a featherweight state to treadmill a 5k run in preparation for the National Geographic Earth Day Run.

So without trepidation, I resolutely march to the quaint little place in the Scout Castor - Tomas Morato area to have my brunch.

The name of the restaurant is Greens Vegetarian Restaurant and Cafe.

Not an everyday restaurant with glass doors and fine furnitures, this one is essentially a residential menage with living room transformed into a dining area brimming with private and homey feel. Being nestled in the thick leafy foliage and lush greenery completed its concept of organic and vegan meal.

That day, the table was graced with Greens Vegetarian Barbeque(Php75), sliced gluten in marinade of crushed garlic, freshly ground pepper, pineapple, and soy sauce served with a tangy sweet pickled salad and brown rice, Veggie "Beef" and Broccoli(Php185), barbecue veggie meat combined with fresh broccoli sprinkled with cashew nuts, Roasted Veggies Wrap(Php80), grilled eggplant, onion, cheese, tomato, lettuce, and zucchini, and Sisig(Php140), a mashed tofu, gluten, and a blend of garlic, ginger, onions, and freshly ground pepper making this high protein entree an all-time favorite among its dining patrons. None of the ingredients uses beef, pork, or poultry meats. These are purely greens but you will never notice as they taste like real meat. Even their Chicharon, as I was told, is not really chicharon, and their burgers are veggie concocted.

As my health buff buddy and film critic says "you are what you eat", and he was the one who taught me the habit of drinking Yakult after every meal with meat. This time, however, no Yakult concludes my meal. A hearty and healthy substitute without compromising the taste of a real deal, Green Vegetarian Restaurant and Cafe is an alternative green cuisine.


  1. Ooh, I've been here and I want to go back! :D

  2. @bea: oh yeah, i've read that, you were with Michelle and the gang right? i will be coming back too. magpapaka-healthy na ako. hahaha.

  3. ive tried to be vegetarian. but i didnt succeed. ahahaha

  4. @Rome: i am forcing myself to be a vegetarian too, at least for weekdays, so as i have time to indulge in meat during week ends.

  5. wow veggies~ sobrang payat mo na john!

    looks yummy, may i ask what's with drinking yakult after every meal?

  6. @Katey: i only drink Yakult after every meal with meat(esp red meats like pork and beef). pero kung white meat or veggies naman, di ko na kailangan. Yakult helps in digestion, for colon health.

  7. so dapat magbaon ng yakult lagi lagi? eh gusto ko malamig na yakult so dapat nasa coleman?

  8. @Lady E: ako rin eh, malamig gusto ko. although pwede rin naman ako uminom ng hindi malamig. kase natikman ko rin na hindi. kaya nga there are 7-11 and mini stop bawat kanto ng pinas. mas mahal nga lang, 7-11's yakult is priced at Php10 while mini-stop's at Php11. sa Mercury Php8 lang yun.
