Greens, Juice Bar and Meatless Options at Hillside Cafe

Adding this to my list of happy, vegan-friendly restaurants that I must frequent! Since I went on a lifestyle and diet adjustment in August of this year, one of the challenges (aside from strictly preparing my own meals) was finding easily-accessible restaurants that served plant-based, organic food.

Go Salads is good but my tastebuds started looking for something different, specially now that I’ve tried almost everything on their menu. To be fair to Go Salads though, I’d say it’s my new “fast food” now because when you walk into their store or stall, they get to prepare your salad, sandwich or green smoothie in less than 15 minutes.

Back to Hillside Cafe and Juice Bar.

The only branch they have presently is at Mo. Ignacia, which is surprisingly just near the seminary I go to. I like that the place isn’t so huge. It’s very quaint, perfect for meetings, dates and catch-up sessions. Their salad servings are huge, good enough for two, I would say but if you’re a vegetable monster like me, I’m sure you can consume the entire plate by yourself. I ordered the Superfood Salad (which has kale, mixed greens, quinoa, beets, carrots, malunggay flakes and a vinaigrette dressing) and the Hillside Greens Smoothie (which has spinach, moringa, mango, banana, chia seeds, coconut meat and coconut water). Sophie and Kath ordered the Aglio Olio Pasta and the Tropical Smoothie. Watch the video below and do visit Hillside Cafe! 😀
