Juju Eats in Salcedo Village, Makati: A Do-It-Yourself Salad Place
Toxins aren’t just limited to waste, animals or plants. Toxins can come from the foods we eat and the lifestyle we keep. So if you’re having a hard time losing weight, focusing on school or work, and keeping up with the day, you might want to think twice with the foods you eat.
Start rebooting your palate with greens and juices at this salad bar located in Salcedo, Village Makati called Juju Eats.
From the same people who introduced Juju Cleanse’s cold-pressed juices in 2010, Mr. and Mrs. Kat and David Azanza, this new venture presents salads in a creative way to encourage people to eat their greens.
Juju Eats offers a selection of greens and salads with over 50 toppings and 12 dressings. There is a variety of signature salads to choose from as well as a Do-It-Yourself option that lets you customize and build your own original salad.
Bibimbap Chicken Bowl (Php 350)
The couple behind Juju Cleanse and Juju Eats both came from a family of health buffs. They practiced juice cleansing for years and it dawned on Kat that she wasn’t still ready for a serious vegetarian lifestyle.
This paved way for a new goal in mind—to introduce a gentler yet healthy lifestyle to the people.
And because trying to be healthy is nothing new in this generation, Juju Cleanse and Juju Eats is here to introduce fun and healthy plates as they go sustainable and organic.
Pesto Salad (Php 350)
Here in Juju Eats, they offer healthy selections such as grilled paninis, pasta, rice bowls, wraps, and salads.
For first-timers, you might want to try their Bibimbap Chicken Rice Bowl, a salad-like red rice bowl with kimchi, egg, oyster mushrooms, pickled onions, carrots, romaine, cilantro, sesame seeds, and Korean dressing. This is perfect for those who want to mix up rice and salads in one meal.
For pasta lovers who want to try out something new, you can try their Pesto Salad, pretty much like pesto pasta, but this salad bowl is with romaine, cherry tomato, corn, french beans, parmesan, and pesto dressing instead.
Ay Caramba (Php 450)
The Ay Caramba salad plate, on the other hand, is perfect for people craving for a healthy Mediterranean meal. This salad bowl has chicken, nacho chips, jalapeno, red kidney beans, corn, salsa, cheddar cheese, and ay caramba dressing.
Aside from salads and rice bowls, Juju Eats also serve healthy snack options like the Belt Panini. With its bacon, boiled egg, cherry tomato, romaine, caesar dressing, and herb focaccia ingredients, this snack is perfect not just for adults but also for kids.
Belt Panini (Php 230)
