Here's where to get a delicious and uber-healthy fix!

It's good to see that the Cebuano food and beverage scene is slowly bringing in healthier options especially for those who prefer to lead a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle. Sometimes even us meat-lovers need to detox too and take a leap of faith in trying plant-based dishes. Being healthy is often associated with bland or unappetizing dishes but with more options to choose from, you'll surely be proven wrong! So if you're not sure where to go, here's a quick list of restaurants that offer guilt-free recipes for you to try- but do note though that these may not be pure vegetarian or vegan establishments:

Mooshi Green Bar

Mooshi Green Bar has been with us for sometime by offering a good selection of smoothies, cold-pressed fresh fruit and vegetable juice and salads. At the newly-operational Filinvest Zone at the IT Park, Mooshi has now put up its first restaurant offering a good selection of healthy and satisfying dishes to try. So go ahead and order a platter of their fresh quinoa rolls, chicken Panini or any of their pastas, really- their sauces are made from the freshest ingredients and they don't disappoint.

Echo Store Cebu


Aside from its cruelty-free and healthy merchandise, the Echo Store's Echo Café offers excellent dishes for those that wish to enjoy fresh local produce and naturally-grown products. While they still offer dishes that have meat and dairy, vegan lovers can still rejoice by going for their Tofu or Mushroom Burgers, Vegetable open toasts, soups made with organic produce and vegetable pastas. Delicious!

Bohol Bee Farm's Buzzz Café

If you pretty much loved the Bohol Bee Farm during a visit to Panglao- fans can now rejoice as the brand has decided to expand here in Cebu! While still offering their popular products such as their Pesto Herb Spread, their Buzzz Café offers their famous organic ice creams, squash bread and spread as well as their plant-based spring rolls. Trust me- you won't regret it.

Healthy U Vegetarian Delights Resto


Going for a healthy meal can be expensive but Healthy U proves us wrong- you can grab several cheap vegan meals here. Located at Sambag I, a meal of pansit canton, fried rice and curry tofu costs below Php 100 among many other affordable specialty vegan dishes. What more could you ask for?
