Places to Eat: "Kozui Green Tea Cafe." Deliciously Healthy

If you are tired of eating the same fast food meals repeatedly, then I highly recommend Kozui Green Tea Café, located on Tomas Morato. As a semi-vegetarian, I have always loved eating at Kozui. The restaurant is one of the few places where vegetarians can have many choices. The place is also quite relaxing, especially on weekdays. When I was a manager, the restaurant was my quiet little hub after a hard day’s work.

Kozui serves Japanese fusion dishes with a healthy twist. The dishes are not as pricey as you might think. Anyway, if you spend around 200 pesos per meal in fast food restaurants, you can afford to eat at Kozui.  Best of all, you do not have to endure the noise that often plagued popular fast food joints, and even coffee shops.

The cost of eating in Kozui will be much lower if you eat out with your friends. You can share the dishes and the expense. Most importantly, the dishes are relatively healthful compared to other fast food meals.  As always, food tastes much better when you are dining with friends. I only went with A.R. and Bianca because some of our other friends were unavailable.

Clockwise: Tomato, cheese and basil quesadilla; toridon; minced spinach soup; and homemade hummus

For starters, we ordered minced spinach soup (P125) and homemade hummus with grilled whole-wheat tortilla bread, sliced fresh carrots, cucumbers and lettuce (P120). A.R. wanted something hearty but not fattening so he chose toridon, which is marinated boneless chicken in teriyaki sauce topped on steamed rice and garnished with toasted black sesame seeds, bonito flakes, nori or seaweed and negi or Japanese spring onions (P190). We all loved it and if A.R. had not been too hungry, Bianca and I would have snatched it from him and gobbled it in seconds. Bianca ordered tomato, cheese and basil quesadilla with garbanzos, onion, cheese, served with yogurt sauce and fresh salsa (P120). The frozen tea was also quite tempting and it was 98 percent fat-free but we were already full. Next time!

Kazui has many other dishes to try so I suggest visiting the place from time to time if you just happen to be in the Tomas Morato area. Eating healthy has never tasted so good.
