Corner Tree Cafe is a vegetarian restaurant. Not exactly the destination of many foodies but the Christmas Season made us long for light meals as we got ready to feel "deprived" of meaty dishes.
Looks homey, don't you think? The corner vegetarian restaurant is located in Jupiter Street along the stretch between Makati Avenue and Nicanor Garcia Street. It is right under the Miladay Shop and across Aristocrat. Not hard to find. And there's ample parking too, at no charge!
The roasted chestnut soup was a good starter, though we were initially tempted to order the tomato soup. Next we tried the mushroom pasta which was ok, but not outstanding. The tofu teriyaki was --!which was served on top of brown rice. You wouldn't feel deprived with these dishes, at all.
For dessert, we just couldn't pass up the vegan non-dairy ice cream. Perhaps good enough for them vegans, but I do want my real ice cream. Well, we can't win them all.
So how do we score this? I would certainly go back to try other dishes. Besides, I do like the vibe here. It would be nice to grab a corner table even for just coffee and cookies. Quiet, good-sized, homey, healthy. Just what we needed in the midst of all the binge-ing, the traffic, the chaos.
