Hillside Café and Juice Bar in Quezon City
In the recent year or so, novelty diners and cafes have sprouted in the suburbs of Quezon City, making it a foodie’s comfort paradise.
Thus, following Maginhawa Street’s food fame, the streets bounded by Tomas Morato, Timog and Quezon Avenues have held a hip gastronomy regime catering to a flourishing yuppie market in the area.
Among these promising food places is Hillside Café and Juice Bar along Mother Ignacia Street.
Set beside a lush urban gardening station, Hillside Café and Juice Bar sends off a delicious harmony to its neighbor with its array of truly delectable dishes and nutritious smoothies.
This health café fulfills, as well as inspires an understanding for consuming locally sourced whole foods as a way to maintain better health.
As a guest, you don’t have to eat solid food in their refreshing dining area to absorb your daily dose of nutrients. You can opt to consume them in powerful beverages, which also makes for a perfect take out nourishment.
These beverages are all made with cold-pressed fresh and natural fruits and vegetables to ensure that essential nutrients and natural flavours are retained.
As Superfood Smoothies, they come in delicious concoctions of mixed tropical fruits, as in Tropics; or in Hillside Greens’ delightful mix of spinach, malunggay, tropical fruits and chia seeds; or the kids’ favorite Banana Almond Blast with maca powder and flax meal; or another sweetened vegie drink as Mango Beet with beetroot and raw cocoa nibs; and many more must-try concoctions, including assorted Wellness Shots with potent tonic to flush the fats away.
Hillside Café and Juice Bar’s palatable solid dishes are just as enticing with an appetizing blend of protein, carbs and fat sources, each one colorfully presented to nourish all senses.
As starters, they have Pitas and Dip with homemade cashew dip and black olive tapenade, and Beancurd Chicharon, a vegetarian chicharon made with tofu and a side dressing of spiced vinegar.
For more filling delights, they have pastas like Greek Mac and Cheese with organic spinach, feta cheese and roasted pine nuts, and Tomato and Herb Spaghetti with fresh heirloom tomatoes and grated carrots with olive tapenade.
Their mains include satisfying savories like Pesto Custard Chicken Parmigiana with chickpeas set on zucchini spaghetti, Oat and Rye Crusted Smoked Labahita fish with mussels and rocket salad tossed in garlic pasta, and Roasted Potato and Globe Eggplant dish to fulfill the vegetarian spirit.
Though their Power Smoothies already make as perfect sweets, Hillside Café and Juice Bar does offer desserts that still harmonize with the whole food experience, such as their Orange Chiffon Cake and luscious Raw Bars in chocolate, caramel and coffee flavours.
So if you’re ever in Quezon City, make sure to stop by at Hillside Café and Juice Bar for your healthy fix.
