I found it an easy place to find. From the centre , locate Capitol admin building and go down Fernandez street and it is on the right after a few hundred metres. I didnt think it was so small or dark personally, it looked attractive inside and the waitress was friendly and eager to please. It looked as you would expect a vegetarian restaurant to look. Nice chairs but oh manmade tablecloths that looked good but were cheap and felt poor.
Have i mentioned the time it takes to get your drink or food, or anything , yet ? It was an epic length of time before i was served, maybe another cook is required in the kitchen? But that, of course, is a blessing in disguise really, it means the food is cooked fresh, or (unlikely) kitchen blunders.
I ordered the house smoothie, a thick carob peanut concoction that tasted good although would be better AFTER the main course not before. Then came a long long long long wait until i actually received my food. It tasted good, there are many mexican items on the menu, presumably because the blandish vegetarian food can be spiced up. Two dishes arrived together typical of Asian restaurants, the food looked like the photo ( which was colourful ). It tasted good too, well cooked, strong sauce flavours with the vegetables. The tortilla was excellent accompanied by a sweet dip.
There are no alcoholic drinks served here, i had a very watery calamansi juice. The prices for this westerner were cheap, but the drinks not so cheap.
The dessert broke the records for slowness of serving despite the restaurant being empty for most of the wait. It was a fresh fruit halohalo that tasted ok, not sweet.
Overall, the food was good, the bad points were the cheap tablecloths and SLOW SLOW time to receive the meal.
