“Healthy” is oftentimes described as being unappetising and distasteful.However, Mooshi Green Bar has so far been successful in changing the prevailing mindset – by serving not only delicious juice concoctions but also a delectable healthy fare. And the apparent accomplishment is evident with the opening of its fourth and newest branch in the metro.

The juice bar’s first branch outside of a mall, Mooshi Green Bar treats its patrons to new entrees on the menu alongside the current house specialty juice carte.

Guadalupe were once home to hole-in-the-wall restaurants, Mooon Cafe and Dong Juan – the two are now acclaimed and notable Cebuano restaurant brands. Though both diners are no longer operating in E. Osmena St.  where they debuted, new promising joints have been sprouting lately in the same area.

Planet Vegis looks like it’s moving towards the same success. With good food and a niche for healthy dining, many would be intrigued to try their offerings and may find it enjoyable and rewarding to eat a bit healthier. Highly recommended by fellow Cebu Fashion Blogger Naomi Bersales, I have been planning in paying Planet Vegis a visit, and gladly had the time to check the place out with some friends from Davao Bloggers Society who were visiting Cebu last weekend.

Planet Vegis resides at the old Mooon Cafe. The restaurant is adorned with ethnic wooden carvings hanged on the walls and a concentration of frames of famous vegan celebrities glaring across the waiting and dining areas. A beautiful ethnic table cloth centerpiece makes it easier for everyone to take beautiful food shots for instagram. teehee.

Food

The original plan was to order ala carte but the waiter suggested that we take advantage of the  vegan lunch buffet for just 195PhP. The vegan buffet spread consisted of a salad bar with 2 dressing variety ( honey mustard and balsamic vinaigrette), soup, rice, 3 viands and unlimited iced tea. The waiter also informed us that the buffet is available every Saturday and Sunday lunch from 10AM-2PM and the items on the spread changes depending on the ingredients that are available in their kitchen.

The caldereta was surprisingly good. The “vegan meat” which is made with gluten and tofu interestingly does taste nothing like what I thought vegan food would taste like. The “Vegan meat” has this texture pretty close to a tender pork.

The okoy and the salad bar also had me going back to the buffet table – twice! 🙂

juicyfied Cafe

Earlier this year, Juicyfied started selling their signature drinks online and their detox programs were widely embraced by Cebuano health buffs and fanatics. Many Cebuano personalities also joined in the health caravan, drinking in the healthy benefits of Juicyfied signature blends and shared their love for Juicyfied by getting the word out. It was an instant hit.

Just this month, an even greater news for juicing fans and health buffs, Juicyfied Healthy Cafe is finally open! The cafe is as colorful as the juices they are serving, the interiors and fixtures are vibrant in color with a mix of wood and cork giving you a homey feel.

Juicyfied Healthy Cafe is serving 22 Juice Blends, plus 4 blends for kids. A few of my personal favorite blends are White Candy (Almond Milk+ Chia Seeds + Agave + Vanilla + Sea Salt) , Chocoholic (Almond Milk + Cocoa + Agave + Sea Salt + Vanilla + Chia Seeds) , Posh (Apple+ Grapes + Pears + Strawberries) , Sunrizer (Apple, Cucumber + Orange) and Coffeeholic (Almond Milk +Arabica Coffee+ Agave + Sea salt + Vanilla) .

Perfect meal enders – Fruit Parfait and Frozen Almond Milk with Chia Seeds!

Their fruit parfait is a delicious medley of mango, Banana, Kiwi, Dragon Fruit and Greek Yogurt.

The frozen almond milk with Chia seeds is a great way to cool down on a hot humid afternoon.

Mooshi Green Bar

Mooshi Green Bar

Mooshi  Green Bar Cebu has expanded their carte which would delight all  health buffs and green fanatics.  With their purpose of introducing healthier options to the Cebuanos, Mooshi added healthy sandwiches and salads to complete their green fare. Most of us have this misconception that when we  announce something that is “green” or “healthy” it would bang a leafy-eeky sapor or a mental thinking that they’re not enjoyably satisfying. Mooshi together with The Lazy Chef might have the right formula to change that mistaken belief with their delectable hearty new  green offerings.

Green Sandwiches, 185php each.

Mushroom Cheesesteak Panini. Honestly if I wasn’t told what was on this sandwich, I swear I would assume that the filling is made of steak. I love some cayenne powder on my Philly cheesesteak and will definitely bring some when I go back to Mooshi. Shitake mushrooms, oyster mushrooms, Fajita Vegetables, mozzarella cheese, Romaine lettuce in toasted whole wheat ciabatta bread. Served with camote/cassava/taro chips.

 

Veggie Garden Panini. My sister, Celeste, has a constant craving for this sandwich and never fails to drop by at Mooshi to get half- a- serving when we are in Ayala. Just love how the zucchini and eggplant melt deliciously together in your mouth. Balsamic-glazed zucchini and eggplant, caramelized onions, fresh tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, Romaine lettuce in Ciabatta Bread with Mooshi’s Signature Spinach Pesto.

Definitely, eating a gardenful of veggies never tasted this good!

With their successful stint at Banilad Town Center Sunday Market, Mooshi has grown so much in just a year and became a noteworthy brand, introducing a healthy revolution in the metro. With their purpose and passion of a healthier Cebu, this rippled to also benefit the organic farmers in the province, giving them a substantial boon.

It sure is more enticing, not to mention convenient, to eat green and live a healthy lifestyle with Mooshi Green Bar Cebu! 🙂
