Have you ever wondered what healthy liempo barbecue tastes like? What about plant-based mechado and kare-kare? If the answer is yes, then chances are you’ve already scoured the Internet for vegan Filipino dishes. But it’s not always easy with the limited options of reliable stores in Metro Manila.
The truth is Filipino cuisine isn’t exactly made to be healthy. Among the factors that contribute to this is the excessive dependence on animal meat, artificial preservatives, and fatty ingredients. But your worries are about to go out of the window, because there’s a restaurant that offers vegan alternatives for Filipino food.
