Healthy and yummy

They do have quite a few options, but mostly just bowls with pure vegetables. I had the gnocchi pasta and it was very delicious and filled a craving. Lemon juice was decent! Definitely worth a go, just not my number one priority. The smoothie bowls had some crazy designs tho i definitely recommend going for breakfast!!

Pros: Quite a few options, Yummy pasta, Amazing looking smoothie bowls

Cons: Not many options that interest me

Extravagant Smoothie Bowls

Luca Loko has a chill, high end vibe (although it’s located on the main drag). The service is exceptional and the bowls are as refreshing as they are overpriced.

I had become very sick while in Siquijor so I was grateful for the easily digestible and curative smoothies. (NOTE: The spiraling smoothie is not vegan as the white chocolate pieces contain dairy)

Tasty Peanut Noodle Salad

I tried the cold peanut noodle salad which was delicious and a very generous portion size. The peanut sauce was delicious! My boyfriend had the cous cous bowl which he enjoyed but was a lot smaller than my meal. On the more expensive side but nice fresh choices.

Bowls for days

If you're not a bowl-lover, this place might not be for you. As a semi-picky eater I wasn't in love. The smoothie bowls were unproportional in the amount of granola (very little) vs "smoothie"
Buddha bowl and noodle bowl were good in size but lacked flavour unless you love peanuts and will dump the entire sauce on there.
Juices come with a lot of ice so they lack that deliciousness of the fruit.
Prices are decent, staff is lovely. Place was fully packed all times we were there or drove by but service is quite fast

Restaurante con comida deliciosa y diferente

Tienen bastantes opciones veganas y están muy ricas. Merece mucho la pena ir aunque sea un día. Es algo más caro que un restaurante local pero para desayunar o comer un día, es perfecto.
Ingredientes frescos y de calidad. Presentación de los platos muy bonita.

Pros: muchas opciones veganas, comida muy sabrosa

Cons: un poco más caro de lo habitual

Finally found some tofu :). We stayed at Glamping Siquijor and had the ability to cook, but we weren’t able to find any tofu. Not even in the big supermarket in Larena. Therefore we were super happy to finally find some tofu in the Buddha Bowl at this place. As the bowl is super big and filling, the price of around 320 pesos is fair. Its base is white rice, which is topped with veggies, one kind of fruit, and peanut sauce. We had the peanut butter bowl too, and if you are peanut addicted like we are, then you have to try this delicious smoothie bowl. The price of 250 pesos is fair also.

Pros: Many vegan options , Good value for price, Big portions

Good vegan food in San Juan

Fairly large vegan selection compared with other places on the island. The Buddha bowl was large and very filling. I really enjoyed that - it contains beans and tofu and since I’ve been struggling to find vegan protein sources in Philippines it’s been great.

The smoothie bowl was nice but tiny though. Was expecting more for the price. Especially since we got a smoothie bowl in Malapascua which was much larger.

Pros: A lot of options , Friendly staff , Good food

Cons: Small smoothie bowls

Didn't have high expectations finding vegan food on siquijor but pleasantly suprised with the options! The smoothie bowls and sweet potato gnocchi are delicious and the fruit platter is great (ask for it without the yogurt dip). The Buddah bowl wasn't our fav but is large af.

Pros: Good wifi

Delicious Gnocchi!

The menu here was great for vegetarians and a mix of unique dishes. I loved the squash gnocchi! My boyfriend had the veggie balls which were good but could maybe have done with something a bit extra as a side. We also had the croquettes which we’re delicious! I did enjoy the food but I felt maybe the restaurant lacked a little in atmosphere/didn’t feel super welcoming but that could have just been me.

Nice place

Free water refill! Nice place to come any time of the day! We came for breakfast and had the mango and banana smoothie bowl which was amazing! And then came again why friends for dinner.. We all had the Buddha bowl which was really nice, but came with little sauce, then you have to buy extra sauce.

Pros: Tasty food , Free water refill

Cons: Very little sauce with Buddha bowl

Came here and ordered the Buddha bowl. It was really good with a large variety of toppings. What I like most is that anything that’s vegan is clearly labeled.
