Seriously Yummy Vegetarian Food at Agico

I swear I will become a vegetarian one day. Okay, that probably won't be until I'm 80 years old or something. Until that day comes, I will enjoy my meat cravings as much as I can. I recently got a preview of the vegetarian life at Agico and it wasn't so bad.

Okonomiyaki (P280)

I love okonomiyaki and I think Agico's version tasted like tuna. I don't know what they put in it but we can be sure it is something healthy. We talked to the owner and she said all of their food contains original family recipes. They are a vegetarian family and I always admire people who take good care of their bodies.

Baked Lasagna (P268)

It is lasagna without the meat and lots of tomato sauce. I think it is what lasagna is supposed to be like. I am not really a fan of lasagna with too much meat so this one is a winner for me.

Beef Tapa

This vegetarian restaurant is a fusion cuisine type of restaurant which means you will get a healthier version of all the foods you love from different cuisines. We also got the famous tapsilog but the tapa is not the cow meat we are used to but a brilliant healthy version.

Butayaki Maki (P258)

I really admire their recipes like what they did for the buta in the butayaki maki. They made meat that was really similar to the real thing and it would be hard to know the difference. In fact, those who didn't know this dish is vegetarian won't be able to tell the difference. It is perfect to give those who want to eat healthy but are having a hard time getting their mind into it.

Tofu Steak (P230)

Tofu is one of the most common viands of vegetarian people so I was not surprised to see it here. I loved the veggies and mock steak that came with this serving. It really added a lot of flavor in the dish.

Gyoza (P158)

Their healthy version of gyoza was excellent. It was not deep fried as expected and the taste really resembles the gyoza we are all used to loving.

Bacon Mushroom Burger (P288)

The bacon mushroom burger of Agico certainly tastes different from the Wendy's version I am used to having. The deep fried french fries is also avoided as you will get a healthier version of that too. Their mock meat is something that will make you forget you are eating vegetarian food which is good because they are good for the body.
