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.
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! 🙂
Truly enjoyed my first Vegan buffet and would love to be back real soon to try those Vegan Barbecues (as recommended by CFB’s Sophia Sanchez )! ^_^
