Vegan for a Day at Green Bar

One day (I hope it's nearer than I originally planned), I plan to become a vegetarian.  However, it's probably going to be a long time before that happens since the word "diet" doesn't exist in my vocabulary right now.  I did decide to become a vegetarian for a day when I hosted a mini-blogger event at Green Bar. I decided to go all the way from north to south just to try this much talked about Vegan restaurant.  

Was my trip worth it? Let's find out.

Green Bar is located inside the Beyond Yoga building at Westgate because it is brought to us by the same people who owns Beyond Yoga Alabang branch, sisters Sarada, Michelle and Jaderani. It is a nice place to relax after an hour of yoga.

The Hail Seitan (P350) is far from a devilish dish. It is inspired by New York City's finest foodies so it is no surprise this is their best seller. Inside this tasty looking sandwich is caramelized onions, crisp seitan, cashew cream and vegan mayo.  The fact that it is served warm by grill just makes it even better.

Mama Mia! The Cuban Burrito (P200) contains red rice, black beans, fried plantains, mildly spicy seitan, pico de gallo and chimichurri sauce. Despite the number of ingredients inside the burrito, the taste is simply magnificent.

I would highly suggest starting the day off with the Breakfast Burrito (P220). This goodie is loaded with scrambled tofu, roasted potatoes and slightly sweet seitan sausage. Breakfast has never been this good.

The Sweet Basil (P200) contains grilled tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and of course sweet basil. The ooziness of the cheese made this dish really worth it. There is no need for meat indeed as this sandwich is my favorite out of all that was served to us.

Bourbon Street (P100) contains bacon but it is actually mock meat.  This cupcake will surely get you up in cloud 9 in no time.

Chocolate lovers would love the Chocolate Hill (P100).  Its fudge filling and peanut butter cream would make you crave for it over and over again.

Havana (P100) is an addicting cupcake despite the fact that it doesn't contain a lot of sugar. It's vegan fluffy whipped creame inside moist vanilla cupcakes.  The taste of coconut is without a doubt the highlight of this cupcake as it is sprinkled with coconut bits.

This margarita pizza with vegan mozzarella and basil is looking to become a favorite among vegans who are also pizza lovers. It's the perfect afternoon snack for health conscious people.  It just needs a name.  How about the Pizard of Moz? =P 

The power balls are ideally taken before exercise as these things would surely get you energized.  It contains nuts, almond butter, chia, flax, goji, perfect crunch and a touch of sweetness. Substitute this for your chips and watch the benefits.

I must thank Michelle, Jaderani and Sarada for a fun day of being a vegetarian.  Anyway, it turned out to be just half a day for me but I am still hoping that somewhere down the road, I would discipline myself and eat healthy. For all the South vegetarians out there, do check out this new vegan restaurant.

Roch ayon kay ...

OMG hehe I think my family and I would want to eat here. My mom was excited upon hearing about it. My dad was just negative because the location is pretty far. Anyway, at least we now have a clue on where to eat vegetarian food when in Alabang.
