Green Bar

Located at the heart of the Makati business district is Green Bar, a plant-based restaurant, cafe, and bar founded in 2014 by sisters Jedarani and Sarada Santos. As vegans and cooks themselves, the owners are passionate to create dishes that are creative, familiar, and most importantly, full of flavor. Patrons seem to agree and leave good reviews of the restaurant.

Veg Kare Kare ⓒ Pipino

Our list would not be complete without including a restaurant located at the infamous Teacher’s Village of Diliman. Pipino started as a 6-item line under PINO’s menu back in 2010 in celebration of Earth Day. The team developed more “veganized” dishes and desserts and finally opened their doors to the public six months later.
