After all that binge eating just right before the weekend, I was suddenly craving for something healthy. I've already been to Corner Tree Cafe before and enjoyed my vegan meal immensely so I wanted to bring my daughter here so she could give it a try. It took a little bit of prodding to convince her to join me last Friday. We both love our steaks and meat dishes and sure, my daughter eats vegetables, but more of as a side dish and not really as a main course so I was excited for her to try out their food.
Corner Tree Cafe is a cozy little vegetarian cafe along Jupiter Street in Bel-Air Makati. They offer vegan and non-vegan options as well as gluten free and sugar free dishes. I also noticed a note on their menu that they serve and cook with Kangen alkaline water, high in antioxidants.
Fresh Lemonade & Mango Lassi- a yogurt based drink, high in calcium.
Spanakopitas- classic Greek appetizer. Light, crisp filo pastry filled with spinach and feta cheese, served with mint yogurt sauce.
Baked Tofu Walnut Burger- a big, healthy burger in a whole wheat bun, slathered with mint yogurt sauce, topped with Gruyere cheese and served with sweet potato fries, homemade mayo.
Arroz ala Cubana- minced tofu, tomatoes, green olives, raisins, fried bananas & fried egg. Served with organic red rice. I loved this! Next time I'll get an extra order of bananas :)
Fresh Fruit with Poppyseed Yogurt- refreshing dessert made with fruits in season.
Salted Caramel Chocolate Torte- I was convincing my daughter to choose a healthier dessert but she wouldn't budge :P
I'm happy she enjoyed our vegan lunch and that she really liked her Tofu Burger. So, I guess she wouldn't mind if we go back for more :)
