It’s the New year and everyone wants to try to eat a little healthier after the food filled holiday season. CDP Global in Rockwell has a slew of healthy but still tasty dishes to help you with this goal.
Start off with a Ulang and Tropical Fruit Bowl (P625). Greens with watermelon, pomelo, mango pineapple, fresh river prawns, camote chips and drizzled with lime dressing. There’s a lot of different textures to keep it fun. The lime dressing gives a flavor contrast to the sweet fruits and shrimp. I also appreciate that they already peeled, chopped and mixed in the ulang but kept the heads on the bowl.
Kimchi Soba Salad (P350). Soba noodles tossed with kimchi then topped with tomatoes, cucumber, nori, soft egg and crispy tofu sticks. A bit of Japanese and Korean mix up in this cold noodle bowl with the tasty and crisp tofu sticks providing a textural crunch to go with the slight spice and sourness of the kimchi.
Grilled Beef and Vermicelli Salad Bowl (425). Grilled hanging tender on top of vermicelli, picked vegetables, topped with peanuts and drizzled with sweet chili vinaigrette. A Thai inspired bowl that is healthy but will still fill up your tummy.
Halibut on Quinoa and Cauli Rice (P625). A mix of quinoa and cauli rice bed topped with almonds, pine nuts, crumbled feta cheese and topped with a pan roasted halibut fillet. The fillet was perfectly cooked with a nice crust but the meat was still juicy. The bed of nuts and grains is quite filling but not heavy and possess a lot of nice exciting textures.
The Lechon Wrap (P295) is the one dish that encapsulates healthyish, pieces of tasty chopped lechon surrounded by a plethora of mixed greens and finished off with sriracha and aioli. The wrap is filling and you get to satisfy your meat cravings but still get a big dose of vegetables. The Prawn and Oyster Tempura Wrap (P425) is another good choice with crispy prawns and oysters surrounded by mixed greens and mango.
My favorites are the quinoa and cauli rice bowl, the kimchi soba and of course the lechon wrap.
