Do you eat healthy food?

Many of us resist the truth that we need to eat healthier to be able to have a better lifestyle. Who is to be blamed? Meat is so good and the healthier options are boring pricey. Us, the masa, want a meal that would get us through the day for a budget of100 pesos or less. Most often than not, unhealthy food can provide satisfaction easily. Who can relate?

Fruits and vegetables in the country are not necessarily expensive (like meat) but.. you know what I mean. Most veggie dishes we see are just bland, unappetizing, and purely made out of habit; so why would I pick those saggy baguio beans instead of the usual crispy porkchop?

Honestly, carenderia food is plain and repetitive, nothing special. They serve the same dishes every day, but not in this green eatery. They give you options, delicious ones; you won’t even feel the healthy substance that is on your plate. All you know is that you are getting the best meal to get you through the tiring day.

You see, BORING is not on their menu. They also make Vietnamese spring rolls! You can’t find this in any carenderia. If you ever find Vietnamese rolls in Cebu, they can be really expensive.

They offer food that is naturally very affordable and they also sell dishes that are expensive by nature and sell them for a cheap price. Their meals range from 55-75 pesos only and viands for 30 pesos minimum.
