Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and Indian Dishes: Persian Palate
If you love faux meat, you need to add Persian Palate to your dining itinerary of Cebu City. This venue has not one but two branches in the city. One is on the 3rd floor in the Active Zone of Ayala Mall and the other is Mango Square. Neither lends to atmosphere, but what these venues lack in décor they make up for in taste and affordability.
The menu is one of the most extensive of all the restaurants in this guide. Look out for their vegan starters, salads, vegetarian wraps, vegan soups, and vegetarian favorites (including vegan meat options). Persian Palate has all of your meat-free dietary needs covered.
In addition, this restaurant also serves up a few carnivorous finds, so everyone you’re dining with has something to choose from! Our favorites included their:
- Veggie Samosa (₱130)
- Tofu Salad (₱195)
- Veggie Meat Biryani (₱220)

Filipino Food and International Dishes: Lun-Haw Vegan Cafe
‘Lun-haw’ is Cebuano meaning the color ‘green,’ which is also synonymous to lush and growing foliage. With a menu made up entirely of vegan options, the name is certainly not a surprise! Lun-Haw Vegan Cafe aims to provide healthy and organic food using plant-based alternatives for vegan diners and beyond, and their hope is that more Cebuanos will choose to live a plant-based life!
Their menu features smoothie bowls, fresh soy shakes and juice, hot drinks, soups, salads, sides, pasta, main meals, and activated charcoal meals (like their black burger or black lemonade). Our favorites include:
- Buffalo Broccoli (₱170): cauliflower and broccoli coated in soy and flour batter, dipped in vegan buffalo sauce and served with turmeric brown rice and a house salad
- Vegan Sisig (₱170): tofu mushroom sisig in spicy and savory coconut “butter” sauce topped with a vegan egg and served with turmeric brown rice and a house salad
- Peanut and Chocolate Smoothie Bowl (₱160): a chocolatey combination of frozen bananas, peanut butter, cocoa, and soy milk and topped with banana, cocoa syrups, cashews, and desiccated coconut
Its only downfall is that there is only one woman working so the food took quite a long time and there isn’t any wi-fi. Otherwise, this is one of our favorite restaurants in Cebu City!
