Ah, Davao City – the land whence the President Who Would Make Us All Chinese first reigned. I’ve been here several times, often just as pitstops and to visit my Aunt who resides here. The last time I went, however, brought a new discovery: delicious vegan eats!


So, should you come and visit the King City of the South for your own #PlantPoweredAdventures, here are some places and plant-based eats to check out. (I’ve only tried one restaurant. Have any reco?)

1. VEGAN DINOSAUR
My friend Glenn of Escape Manila (who’s not yet vegan) swore I would love this place and he was absolutely right. The place is bright, mostly windows for natural light. It has a rustic, gray/ochre theme going on.

The food here is divine. And it’s all vegan! Rawfood, oil-free, and gluten-free options are also available, and each item on the menu is clearly labeled with respect to those with allergies (soy-free, nut-free, etc.)

I assure you, even carnists would love it. It’s a great way to intro someone to vegan food. This would definitely make a good first impression!

Also, the owners put up a bulk store called Croft which is just a few steps away from the restaurant. You can get package-free goods like local chocolate, flour varieties, granola mixes, dried fruits, and nuts. You know how that phrase goes – “Like a kid in a candy store”? Well, we made it better: like a vegan in a bulk store. Because, you know, we are all for bulk stores!
