I've been a vegetarian (specifically, an ovo-lacto vegetarian) for five years now but in those five years, I've never been to a vegetarian restaurant. I think it's primarily because I could never find anyone who's willing to go with me--that is except for my good friend and co-miss fit, S :)
A few months back, I was looking for a place to try archery and I saw one in Ortigas. Coincidentally, the place also has a vegetarian restaurant!--how cool is that? So one Saturday, Sophia and I went to Gandiva cafe to check out their vegetarian offerings!
The moment we stepped out the elevator, we were greeted by a scene of people shooting arrows. It was so cool and intimidating at the same time! Lol!
The cafe was not packed which is a good thing because we were so hungry.
Your view from one side of the cafe are these archery enthusiasts who we were so jealous of!
The players were of all ages! There were kids as young as 8 or 9 and adults of course. If not for the lack of time and fully packed area, we would have loved to shoot some arrows. Maybe next time. For now, let's focus on the food!
We ordered the Bacon Cheese burger pizza--don't worry, it's vegetarian! The "meat" part is made of soy protein :)
For the pasta, we got their best seller, the spicy nut sundried tomato pasta. Now, this type of pasta I am more familiar with because this is usually what I eat. I have high standards for my sundried tomato pasta (because I make my own) so I say this was so-so. But don't worry, it doesn't mean it's not tasty--it is! It's just not as mind-blowing as my version :)
