Are there authentic vegetarian restaurants in Cebu?
As many of us have become more health-conscious in recent years, food has been an important topic. Especially vegetarian food has gotten lots of love recently. It’s no secret that most meat-based dishes aren’t exactly high quality—and that’s not even considering if the meat itself is healthy.
Changing to a plant-based diet can help reduce the environmental impact of your eating habits, which is why many people are turning to veganism. According to research conducted at Oxford University, eliminating animal products from one’s diet is the “single biggest way” to reduce one’s carbon footprint drastically.

So, how about it then? Where can you find vegetarian food in Cebu?
We love vegetarian food. That’s why we’re starting to collect places in Cebu where you have a decent selection of vegetarian or vegan food.
Why? Because, by and large, Cebu is a dream for meat lovers. You’ll find your treat from Korean BBQ and steak to local delicacies such as sisig or lechon.
But it’s a bit more complicated if you’re vegetarian. In fact, a couple of years ago, that might have been a real challenge.
Vegetarian food is invading the menus in Cebu. Slowly but surely, you’ve got choices. Still, it’s not everywhere. As so often in Cebu, you kind of… need to know.
And since we enjoy vegetarian food ourselves—and have plenty of friends who do—we collect food places for you.
To be included in our list, offering a side of mashed potatoes or sour cream fries is not enough. It’s also not enough if you can ask the kitchen to prepare the salami pizza without the salami. Yes, no salami.
You know you’re in the right place when you can’t decide what to eat when a bunch of yummy things fights to be chosen.
As usual, we’re opinionated in what we add. However, if you think we can improve the list, please let us know at email@example.com.
