Ima’s Gulay Bar is one of my favorite places in the heart of Puerto Princesa. Very tasteful food for vegetarians and vegetable lovers like us from soup and salad to pasta, sandwiches, burgers, pizza and Mexican burritos to their rice dishes and a lot more at very reasonable rates.

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.

Can't recommend this place enough. After a week long meat binge and finding it hard to find decent vegetables Ima's was fantastic. Visited a few times, and friends really enjoyed their meals so it wasn't just me...

Was totally blown away to see TEMPEH on the menu Love the Tempeh Steak! Great place for the health conscious and for vegetarians. I love the freshness of their food and their bestseller for me is the Broccoli and Tofu in Sweet and Sour sauce. It is definitely worth the visit, the menu is varied and interesting - service is...

As a vegetarian in the Philippines you could only imagine how happy I was to find this place. So tasty and such a relief from all the beef and pork everywhere else!!! I probably wouldn't have enjoyed it as much in the beginning of the trip, but after two week in Palawan this was my favorite restaurant in the Philippines!... More

The only vegetarian restaurant we found in Puerto Princesa, and from the outside you might easily pass it by, but fortunately we didn't. The food was varied and delicious, average size servings (which we liked) and the decor traditional and clean. Good prices too. If your looking for a change from pork, beef and chicken dishes, then this place is... More

This place was at the most, and being very generous, mediocre. We went with a party of 5 and the service was subpar. Out of the 7 or so dishes we ordered, 1 was pretty good. The rest were plane, really small, and just kind of boring. The tempeh fries were pretty good. The chimichanga was the size of an... More

I'm not a vegetarian but had heard great things about this place and wasn't disappointed. The salsa which accompanied their tortilla chips was one of the best I've had - really tasty. The pasta dish was nice too and prices were budget friendly. Take note of their somewhat sporadic opening hours.
