small nice place

4 Posted on 06 / 18 / 2014

I was there once and i will definitely visit the wabi sabi noodle house again. The crew speaks good english and they could tell me what exactly is vegan and what not. what surprised me, it isn't so expensive unlike most vegetarian/vegan restaurants.

Pros: good price, yummy food, nice atmosphere
Cons: small portions, small location, but it's enough, few food selection to choose from

outstanding flavor

5 Posted on 05 / 04 / 2014

With over 30 visits and bringing more than 40 different friends, I know Wabi Sabi very well.

Located in a hellhole, Wabi Sabi's location is truly to be desired. Many of my richer vegetarian friends won't eat here, even though its in the heart of Makati.
Yet lets set the location aside.
The food they cook is bar none the best in the Philippines.

I recommend to try every single dish here, especially the soups.

Pros: Taste of food, Service, Just simply the yumminess
Cons: location location locaiton

    Someone should confirm this restaurant is still open, I searched and searched and could not find it, even asking many people. There seems to be a lot of construction on that street.

Good veggie Pho Hoa

3 Posted on 09 / 13 / 2012

They serve vegetarian Pho Hoa which is my favorite.It has mock meat ingredients and taste great. A typical Vietnamese style noodles. They have vegetarian Siomai(dumplings) and Siopao(steamed buns). Good for snacks and take-out. I love their cold Ginger beer beverage. It is located inside the compound of The Collective Makati. A venue for Arts and Music event. Noodle House is airconditioned. Small store and its hotter inside specially if there is an event. Need to expand the store to accommodate more customer.

Pros: good food, friendly staff , good value
Cons: limited choices of menu, hard to find location, small place

Appreciation

5 Posted on 12 / 10 / 2010

My heartfelt appreciation goes to Wabi Sabi. It is difficult to find real vegetarian broth when eating out anywhere in Manila. So, being the noodle-lover that I am, this place is a lifesaver! Their dishes taste lovely and their menu options are so unique! Not you usual veggie resto.

great value great taste

charming noodle house offering simple tasty dishes. and cheap! yes the menu is limited but much of what is offered is good. and that goes for the service too! the pot-stickers/gyozas were delicious, we preferred the ramen to the pho...and the chay pao to the asado, but both paos and noodles are tasty...wasn't too keen on the whole wheat pao as i found it a bit too sweet...

the lemongrass tea was perfect!

Pros: tasty healthy dishes, great value, friendly staff
Cons: no dessert

Extremely salty food

3 Posted on 06 / 10 / 2010

I went to Wabi Sabi with high expectations, but was sorely let down by the lack of variety of dishes. (They only have three main meals.) Also, all the food was very very salty. My blood pressure shot right up after dinner was over. However, all is not lost. The interior decor is nice and cosy, and the noodle house is situated in The Collective, which is a nice, former car warehouse converted into a shopping ground. I'd go back again, not so much for the food, but for the presence of the other shops in the area.

The only thing I really liked was the dumplings (even though they too, were swimming in a sea of salt and soy sauce.) The skin was crispy and the fillings were tasty. Three dumplings per plate are not enough!!!

Pros: Cheap, Nice interior.
Cons: very salty, in a hard-to-find place
