After all the greasy goodness we tasted in December, embracing a healthy diet in the new year isn’t the easiest thing. As we clutch our expanded bellies, we hold on to our memories of all the festive and fatty dishes that made up our holiday spread.
Here’s the problem: you’ve resolved to eat right but you’d also like to satisfy those cravings. A solution might be just a quick walk from your Vantage apartment in Kapitolyo.
On Brixton Street is Edgy Veggy, a café that dishes out veg versions of your favorite eats with meat. From a bean-stuffed burger burrito with a gluten-free bread option to mushroom sisig with tofu bits, the menu goes big on taste and low on calories.
The START sat down with Edgy Veggy’s Denise Celdran, who recommended some new year nutrition via a heavy-hitting classic made light and vegetarian: a hearty Mushroom Callos. Now lose the guilt, save the satisfaction, and dig in.
Edgy Veggy is located at #3 Brixton Street, Kapitolyo, Pasig City
