Restaurant Review: Green Bar Cafe in Westgate Center, Alabang
Published on October 17, 2014
I was invited by Aldous of Aldous Ate the World to join other bloggers in a food-tasting event he organized. The destination? A new vegan café in Alabang. I can proudly say that I am very conscious of what I eat. Although I munch on junk food and occasionally resort to eating in fast food restaurants, I still make sure that I have my dose of fruits and vegetables. It’s not easy. So imagine my admiration for those who strictly follow a specific diet, let’s say vegans, for example. I absolutely can’t do it, but I was so curious as to what they eat and how it tastes. There is this stereotypical idea that anything healthy does not taste good. Well, Green Bar Café is here to prove this idea wrong.
Green Bar Café is located inside the Beyond Yoga Building in Westgate Center, Alabang. It is the brainchild of three sisters, Michelle, Jaderani and Sarada. They are franchisees of Beyond Yoga, which has been operational for a year. They decided to open Green Bar because they wanted the place to be a one-stop shop for yoga and fitness enthusiasts. The café just opened last month so I was lucky enough to be one of the bloggers who had first dibs of their menu.
I absolutely love the minimalist black, white and green vibe of the place. Just looking at the cozy place is very relaxing. And coming from a bookworm like me, the bookshelf is indeed a nice touch. I seriously want every restaurant to have a bookshelf. But nowadays, people care more with a place having free and fast internet more than books. So in case you're curious, the place has free internet, too! Haha! =)
