The facade already gave me the homey feel. It is like going back to the province. The wooden tables and chairs added to the cozy atmosphere. But the taste of my vegan tofu burger and my friend's chilly bean burger topped it all! The vegan mayonnaise (soyannaise) is so flavorful I had to ask if it was real vegan or... More

I found it difficult to find good vegetarian food in the whole of Philippines and so glad I found Ima's. It's a fairly low key dining experience, but the choices available are great after subsisting on breaded items for a week. Went 3 times and always managed to get something different that was great tasting especially as they seem to... More

The service was exceptional here!!! I went with my friend we are both Australian and vegetarian. Food was so fresh, clean and healthy! You must all visit and try one of their 'biscuits' they look like balls on the counter!

Great food, service and atmosphere... After struggling to find a truly organic vegetarian our last stop at imas before our departure was completely worth the wait. The humble owners lovely presence can be felt from the second you walk in. The meals were fantastic, I even ordered a takeaway breakfast! You can taste the love :)

Visited for dinner on first night in PP: wasn't disappointed. Food was a fantastic, quickly prepared and brought to the table one dish at a time. Stuffed cucumbers and bean burritos were especially good. Asked to speak to the chef after the meal and out came Ima! She was great and you could tell that she was proud of her... More

My girlfriend and I were very health oriented and vegetarians for 3 years before we started traveling Southeast Asia. Once we started traveling we realized how hard it would be to maintain that lifestyle so we changed our eating habits. When we learned that there was a vegetarian restaurant in Puerto Princesa we made it a top priority having no... More

Ima's Gulay Bar was the best food experience I have had as a vegetarian traveller! I read about the restaurant in the flight magazine on way to Puerto Princessa (in Aug 2013, just before the hurricane hit Philippines =(), and I decided I had to visit this place. There are plenty of food options to choose from. We ordered a... More

I was a little worried traveling as a vegan in the Philippines but kept running into great places like this one. Inexpensive, tasty, and great portions.
