Healthy U is a great vegan cafe - Edit

Healthy U is a small vegan cafe with lots of pre-cooked food choices including white or brown rice ... I got a sampler plate (1 of everything in the bain marie) with brown rice (120 pesos)... very friendly staff with basic English ... I really enjoyed my first visit to a vegan cafe in Cebu

Pros: cheap, great tasting vegan food

Disappointed :( - Edit

I went yesterday, 19th Feb - around lunch time and to my surprise no one was there. Not sure if it was closed since there's no signage, I also checked their Fb and it's not updated, not sure if they are still on business.

The shop was empty but it seemed open, couldn't ask anyone since there's no one around. Would be great if they can update their Fb so people would know if they are still on business or not. I ended up eating samosas to the next door Indian restaurant

Cons: Location, Fb needs to be updated

Good food. Good Prices. - Edit

I am currently a third year medical student of MHAMCM/SWU and have been eating here since my first year. Being a lacto-ovo vegetarian since birth, I am happy this place is here.

The staff has always been accommodating, and compared to the prices of the Indian restaurant nearby, this place is very student friendly. There are 4 small tables inside, and another 3 tables at the back. The place is a little cramped, but its homey.

They have fruits(bananas mostly), rice(served by cup), drinks(soymilk, tamarind and lemongrass juices), a variety of different entrees, usually have one or two different kinds of soup, a simple vegetable broth soup thats free, and a couple of desserts to boot. The food is best during brunch/lunch as they have just cooked the dishes. The later in the day it gets, the less food there is, so i dont recommend going there after 6PM.

I highly recommend the potato scallops, the tofu and potato curry and the tamarind juice. for REALLY good soymilk by the way, go to Adventist Hospital of Cebu(formerly called Miller Hospital).

I'd give them 3.5 stars, but they don't have half stars on happy cow. And since I'm a glass-half-full kind of person, I give them 4 stars. Happy Eats!

Pros: good value, good food, friendly staff

Cons: too close to road, a little cramped

Typical Filipino veggie carinderia - Edit

Actually its more of the canteen type than a restaurant. It is located in a road besides passing Jeepney. I met the owner of this named EBJ. He is kind, warm, hospitable and corteous. They have variety of locally cooked food. I notice the canteen wall has lots of Menu poster in Tarpauline type but unfortunately when you order them its out of stock. Why put the menu on the wall if its not available? Im just curious...
The location is far from downtown area. You have to tell the Jeepney driver or Taxi driver to drop you at Southwestern University then after that you have to find Tormis St. Barangay Sambag 1 in Cebu is big so you have to ask the locals. It's the easiest way.
Food - Fair
Price - very good. good for backpackers and in a tight budget
Service Staff- poor. The owner needs to orientate them for proper hygiene, food handling and good quality customer service.
Location - Fair. If your phone has GPS use it.

note: Shiv Dal Roti (pure vegetarian) Indian food restaurant is just besides Healthy U.

Pros: good value, variety of choice, owner is kind

Cons: location is far from downtown, poor staff service

Vegan Karendaria - Edit

They offered 6+ dishes, 1 soup, white rice, 1 juice, and vegan cookie. We tried 5 out of the 6 dishes and really liked the potato curry. I also liked the vegan cookie, though it was a bit dry.

Unless you go to Southwestern or live near here, it is a bit difficult to find. However, it is good that it is right next to Shiv Dal Roti (vegetarian).

This is a typical Filipino karendaria style place. The food is already prepared and you can pick which dish you want. There is no a/c so it may be warm or hot. If you are not used to traveling in Asia and eating street food, please be warned, and take probiotics to avoid any possible intestinal issues.

There were signs that said they offered other items, but apparently they don't make them anymore. And they did not have fresh soymilk or tofu, as described in the info about this restaurant.

Pros: pretty good, vegan

Cons: hard to find, no a/c
