We’ve all settled in the new year, and I wonder how are everybody’s resolution lists?
Eating healthy is usually one of the more popular resolutions most of us make. At the first few weeks, it could be easy to do, but as days go by and we get caught up with the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, committing to a healthier diet will definitely have its own share of misses.
It’s just great that Manila now has several options if one wants to eat out and still be healthy. But as not all healthy restaurants are created equal, let Megabites give you an upshot to one of the better options we have now in the metro – like Pipino.
Having branched out to Makati from its original location in Quezon City, Pipino had surely reached out to more of its eager clients south of the metro. But just the same, it brought along with it its refreshing take on healthy living, keeping us interested with our veggies.
Their Vegetable Kare-Kare is still so much a winner, and lets you enjoy this Filipino classic less the meat, but definitely no less in flavor. The Watermelon Steak is as juicy as ever, while their best-selling Portobello Inasal is very much a star that it has always been. This is what Pipino does best – making plant-based, good food delicious and done in familiar flavors to cater to both meat lovers and vegetarians alike. I, for one, don’t feel I’m missing out on the good stuff whenever I eat at Pipino, unlike other vegetarian restaurants make you feel.
The restaurant is very gracious with guests and lets them plug in their laptops or charge their cellphones inside their place. Tables are even situated near electric plugs for convenience and safety as you keep your gadgets near when you’ve plugged them in.
We still have a very good chance to the healthier lifestyle we’ve supposedly committed ourselves in 2015. We can commit to this, definitely, without having the feeling of depriving ourselves if we know where to go to and which restaurants to eat in. Enjoy restaurants like Pipino, where they prepare good food that’s also good to your body and health.
