Corner Tree Cafe is a nice little vegetarian restaurant along Jupiter Street. The place has low ceilings and a homey feel to it. Lots of food bloggers have raved about the restaurant so I really wanted to give it a try.
The photo above shows the Corner Tree Starter Plate (Php 220) it has veggies and bread along with Dukka and White Bean Hummus. The veggies were carrot, cucumber, and turnip served cold and crisp. The bread was some kind of wheat, surprisingly soft (cause they look kind of like croutons) The hummus was delicious! Mild flavors and smooth texture. Dukka is an Egyptian snack, which is pretty much a mix of toasted sesame seeds and spices. First you dip the veggies or bread in the olive oil then the Dukka. It has a fresh taste and gives a nice surprise in terms of texture.
The photo above shows the Spinach Feta Croquettes (Php 185 for 3, Php 340 for 6) they were much smaller than I thought they would be, but they were good. The cover is made of light filo pastry reminiscent of a croissant. A bit forgettable for me.
Above is the Quinoa Salad (Php 220 for solo, Php 380 for sharing) the salad had grilled asparagus, organic greens, feta cheese and sunflower seeds. I liked the varied textures in the dish as well as the tanginess of the dressing. The asparagus was a little too soft for my liking– I was hoping that the asparagus would be crunchier.
Overall, I had a pleasant experience at Corner Tree. Next time, I’ll probably try the veggie burger and lasagna. Also, the hummus is a must! I’d most definitely return for that 🙂
