A dental appointment usually meant a visit to The Podium, so I grabbed the opportunity to do a review – And this time, Juju Eats was my restaurant of choice. Juju Eats calls themselves the very first salad bar here in the Philippines. The owners’ main reason for opening this restaurant is to combine the quickness of fast food together with healthy and light meals. They also have a juice cleanse program in case you’ve been eating too much greasy food and want to refill your body with the proper nourishment it needs (I want to try a juice cleanse so badly but most of them are way too expensive! >_<)

Interior. I have been passing by this restaurant for so long now, but I only just noticed that they didn’t have chairs inside.

Menu.

Thai Chicken Wrap – House mix, grilled chicken, mint, cilantro, cashew nuts, and Asian dressing. As expected, this wrap had a crap ton of veggies inside it – But I enjoyed eating this thanks to the tanginess of the Asian dressing, as well as the bite-sized pieces of the juicy grilled chicken (although I did find a tiny chicken bone in one of the wraps), and the crunchiness of the cashews.

Meatball Marinara – Fusili pasta, capers, chicken meatballs, marinara sauce, cheddar cheese, and basil. I normally dislike red sauce so I gave this dish a pass. I did try one piece of the pasta though, and I must say the sauce tasted really fresh.

Cool and refreshing Choco-Banana Smoothie, made from the finest ingredients. If I ever get the chance to return here, I would try out one of their juices or nut milks.

Can’t leave Juju Eats without trying out one of their famous juices! This is their Qcumber Quench, made from pineapple, mint, and cucumbers.

Much like a good chunk of the organic/healthy-eating places I’ve been too, Juju Eats exceeded my expectations and I ended up enjoying their food. I can actually picture myself coming back here soon enough, trying their other wraps, panini sandwiches, pastas, nut milks, etc. Now if only I had enough money to do those juice cleanses… *sigh*
