Check out these vegan cafes for healthier diet options

“Nothing will benefit health or increase chances of survival on earth as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.”– Albert Einstein

When somebody mentions healthy eating, our brain automatically pictures a plateful of salad or boring and bland meat subbed dishes. With majority of the population possessing the weakness for bacon, meat and cheese, some of us can’t imagine ourselves ditching those guilty pleasures and going all green.

Luckily for us, there are cafes and restaurants in the city that caters to those who want to explore a healthier diet option  without compromising the enticing taste of  some of our favorite dishes. With these cafes, going vegan might be easier than we think.

A vegan/vegetarian cafe just below Maxwell Hotel offering delectable vegan dishes. The place itself is modern clean and fresh. Their bestsellers Buffalo Broccoli & Vegan Sisig are beyond amazing. One couldn’t quite ponder how the cafe got the incredible idea of turning the good-old-greasy sisig into a vegan must-have.
