I've always loved this small piscetarian restaurant on the edge of the campus. When I moved to Diliman, there were not so many dining options in the area, so I often went here.

I think they revised their menu last year. They used to have shrimp pasta and vegetarian kofta, which were unforgettable. Today, they still offer my favorite seafood kare-kare and vegetarian paella. Visit them tomorrow for their buffet!

Likha Diwa would be loved by so many, vegans and non-vegans alike! They offer buffet during weekends for only Php 200. It's a value for money since this buffet is complete with soup, rice, pasta (depends on the theme), fish, seafood and veggie dishes plus dessert! Every week they have a theme so you know what to expect. In that picture above, I had sausage and tomato pasta, calamari, fish nuggets, spinach panini, corn and zucchini fritters and roasted pepper soup (not in picture). I love their blueberry panna cotta (also not in picture)! Because this weekend it's Italian they've prepared.
Aside from the healthy and delicious food, you'll love the ambiance since it's a garden restaurant with some tables set like tables at a Japanese home. You and your friends can sit on the floor and talk for hours!
I'd recommend you to try their tofu sisig and vegan chocolate cake (one of the best I've tried) which is part of the regular menu.
My friends and I keep going back to this place is LOVE.

The vegetarian paella and vegetarian caldereta were pleasant surprises-- fresh-tasting, flavorful & affordable. Would go back for these dishes again.

This predominantly vegetarian place offers the best Saturday buffet in the northern part of the metro. At PhP200 per person, you can get your fill of soup, viands and dessert without feeling too guilty about it (rice optional).

The buffet's open from 11 am to 2 pm, and from 5 to 8 pm. If you want to know the featured cuisine for a particular weekend, check their Facebook page on the morning you plan to go. So far, I've tried their Vietnamese, Filipino and Women's Day (Nora Daza and Cristeta Comerford recipes) and I've no reason to complain so far.

Parking space inside the restaurant compound is limited, though. Be there early in case you're bringing a car.

And, no, please get your steak fix elsewhere. :)

The first time I've been here was when my friend who does serious yoga invited me to try their food. Three years later, their menu (design) has changed but still the food at Likha Diwa is affordable and oh so veggie-friendly.

I tried the Bicol Express in the past then I swore I'll come back and try their weh-pwede-ba-yun?! Vegetarian Dinuguan (Php110). So when I went here I immediately ordered that. We also ordered brown rice (Php15) and Vegetarian Kare-kare (Php120) with their vegan-friendly bagoong. The dinuguan was a little maasim according to my omnivore friend but the dish is so creative with the use of beans for the color. I found the kare-kare a little sweet but the bagoong balances the taste with its saltiness (and oiliness). Then being a carbivore, rice just makes everything so much better. La la la laaaaa. 128522

Next visit will feature the purchase and consumption of their vegan chocolate cake which I ditched because I was so full I can just lie down at the place. Nobody would like that, except the dang horrible mosquitoes.

Thanks to the pesky lamoks, I brought home 3 insect bites on my left toe and right ankle.

128536: affordable vegetarian dishes
128557: parking; no aircon (it's an open place so brace your self or your skin); mosquitoes (I went back and sprayed insect repellent because three insect bites were really annoying already)

Another enjoyable vegan/vegetarian restaurant, this time in the Ateneo/UP area! It's relatively cheaper than other vegan or vegetarian restaurants in the area and serves a wide array of vegan, vegetarian food! They also have some seafood dishes so don't worry if you still like a little meat. My favorites from this place include the deep fried pechay balls, the "dinuguan" made from tofu and black beans and the pesto aligue pasta. Delicious!

I've only been to a few vegetarian cafés (Likha also offers seafood dishes) and this one is still my favorite. It still amuses me how they can maintain the calm ambience despite being situated on the perpetually busy C.P. Garcia Ave. lol.

I've been eating here for five years but I've only tried a few of what they hav to offer. My favorites are the lentil soup with seaweed and alugbati, creamy tuna fettuccine. I also love their inexpensive value meals, that all come with fresh calamansi juice, especially the vegan afritada! :)
