My lunch buddy and I have been eyeing Cafeteria Verde (or C Verde) for a long time but this little cafeteria is always full. We went lucky a few weeks ago to finally try what this place has to offer.
Cafeteria Verde is beside Old Manila Coffee House at the Sports Loop of Robinson's Galleria. It is the vegetarian resto counterpart of Big Chill. Yes, the healthy smoothie bar.
To save a few bucks, we ordered 2 set meals for Php 99. Each set includes an appetizer and a 12oz Slush of the Day.
|The slush of the Day: Mango Watermelon|
The slush of Day is Mango-Watermelon, an interesting combination, I must say.
For appetizers, we chose Nachos with Loaded Garden Salsa (Php 79 for ala carte) and Zucchini Sticks (Php 79 for ala carte).
|Nachos Loaded with Garden Salsa|
I love that the nachos were topped with lots of grated cheese, that I didn't realize that something was missing. The breading was too thick for the zucchini stick, nevertheless, we still liked it.
We also had Caramelized Onions and Cheese Panini (Php 99) and Tomato-Garlic Spaghetti (Php 99).
|Caramelized Onions and Cheese Panini|
The panini oozes with melted cheese enhanced with the sweetness from the caramelized onions. I'd love to have this panini again. However, the Tomato-Garlic Spaghetti didn't appeal to me. Guess I should stick with meaty spaghetti.
Overall, I was satisfied with our vegetarian lunch. Everything on the menu was surprisingly affordable and healthy. Cafeteria Verde also serves healthy burgers, which I'm bound to try on my next visit.
