After all the eating I went through during the Christmas season, it’s normal to slow down on food consumption. While dieting is not part of my New Year’s Resolution, I am aware that I need to eat healthy. I’m aware of the benefits of vegetables, but I’m definitely not going that route. But I accepted the opportunity to dine at Live Life Vegetarian Restaurant in Makati.
Located in one of the buildings along Chino Roces Avenue, I braved the Saturday traffic to find the place. It’s a good thing there’s the Waze and Google Maps app, finding the place is not difficult at all. But when I arrived Cancio Building, I didn’t know where the restaurant actually is. Good thing there’s a sign, but I’m still hesitant as I enter.
I only got settled when I saw the chairs and tables, and the buffet spread. Yes, Live Life Vegetarian Restaurant offers buffet every Saturday for only Php350. Eventually, the rest of the guests started to arrive. And that was the go signal to start eating.
Having anticipated the food I’m going to eat, I opted to skip breakfast. It was way past lunch time already and I’m already hungry that I hurriedly went to the buffet table to get food without thinking what they are. But as hunger cools down, I began to realize that the food I’m eating is actually delicious.
These wraps has fresh veggies in it. I enjoyed the crispiness with every bite. And flavorful too!
I always enjoy Lumpiang Sariwa and this one is no different. I think I had seconds on this one. The sauce also complimented the dish.
These patties are really good. I enjoyed them so much that they sort of became my favorite pairing for other dishes.
Another favorite is the Chili con Tofu because of it’s flavor. I had to remind myself to slow down though because of the tofu and red bean combination that might trigger my gout.
This paella tops all the food that I’ve tried at Live Life Vegetarian Restaurant. Again, the veggies are fresh and every flavor blends perfectly to make this a delicious dish.
To cap the meal, I had Turon (Banana Spring Rolls) which was really nice. I’m not really a banana person, but I enjoyed this dessert. That’s because the banana flavor is masked by the Jack Fruit. It’s like my mind is playing tricks on me – I know there’s banana in there, but I can’t taste it. 😀
After savoring all the dishes at this vegetarian restaurant I realized that I can live with being a vegan. But of course I won’t go into that path. But for those seriously considering it, go for it because it’s possible to enjoy all-vegetable dishes.
Vegan foodies no longer have to settle with other vegetarian restaurants. Live Life Vegetarian Restaurant is a great choice for those who want to eat out and still enjoy the kind of food preferred. Live Life Vegetarian Restaurant offerings are truly vegetarian, from the oil used to fry or saute, and even the seasonings used. It’s amazing how this is possible, but it’s actually not. It’s just knowing what’s available out there, and the people behind Live Life definitely knows what they’re doing.
