Operating with most of its proceeds going to the Zen Buddhist monastery, this vegetarian restaurant in San Juan is a must-visit! It boasts of its affordable yet a wide variety of surprisingly delicious vegetarian items. Some bestselling items are:
Veggie Tacos and Simpaoku with Cashew Nuts,
- Oakwood Mushroom is the restaurant’s best selling item. A breaded mushroom, which is delectable to taste — Perhaps similar to Calamari. Each order is already good for 2 and is friendly on the pocket. Roughly around P120 only.
- The Tacos also capture hearts not only amongst vegetarians but meat eaters as well. Its crispy taco shell and soy-based meat will make anyone come back for more.
- Simpaoku is a stir-fried breaded mushroom with bell pepper and carrots in sweet and sour sauce. Roughly around P170.
- Laing, one of the best in town. Truly flavourful despite the no-meat recipe.It has the right spicy-ness balanced by its coconut-flavored taste. One serving is good for 2-3 people.
And of course, they also serve healthy beverages: Barley with Edamame, Fresh Lemon Juice, Wintermelon tea, etc.
FUTURE POTENTIAL: It’s affordable yet deliciously healthier dishes are its promising strengths that can help it stay in business.
Vegetarian restaurants that can offer vainds, which can easily become a favorite even amongst non-vegetarians at a friendly price, are keys to stay in the business.
