Peppy Olive in Salcedo Village, Makati: A Taste of Feel-Good Mediterranean Meals
Peppy Olive is what we call the taste of happiness. When we say happiness, it means feel-good meals that are locally sourced from organic farms, and are a hundred percent fresh and healthy.
Located inside Three Central in Salcedo Village, Makati, Peppy Olive is not just purely fresh and healthy; it also gives you a guilt-free Mediterranean food selection so you won’t have to sacrifice a tasty yet healthy meal.

Brought together by the love of yoga and healthy food lifestyle, Myka Perlas and Jamie Coa created a one-of-a-kind fast food option for those who are tired of having the same old, unhealthy fast-food meals around Makati. With a common love for Mediterranean cuisine, they created Peppy Olive–with Peppy meaning “happy,” and Olive as the staple ingredient of a Mediterranean meal.
The idea of Peppy Olive started with the owners’ realization of how healthy meal options are very limited and a little too expensive. Thus, they thought of creating a fast-food type stall that encourages everyone to eat healthily, but with a very reasonable price. At Peppy Olive, they serve feel-good Mediterranean meals such as salads, pitas, rice meals, smoothies, falafel, kebab, and more.
Falafel Rice (Php 160)
People under strict diet wouldn’t have to worry about eating a rice meal in Peppy Olive as they serve the falafel with brown rice which is a lot healthier than white rice. Falafel Rice is also topped with cabbage slaw, tomato, and cucumber salad, with white garlic sauce and roasted tomato sauce.
For salads, Chirpy Chicken Salad is a must-try as one of their bestsellers. It balances out the meal with its chopped chicken and greens. This salad is perfect for those who want to gradually shift from the usual lunch meals to a healthier alternative as it still gives you the meat you’re craving for. The salad has Moroccan chickpeas and roasted tomatoes in honey balsamic dressing that complements the typical bland taste of the greens. The dressing and the chicken combination adds up to the flavorful taste of the salad.

If you’re not much of a salad person or if you want something that can be easily eaten, you can try their Beef Kebab Pita. It consists of the usual meat with a tomato and cucumber salad inside, drizzled with white garlic sauce perfect for an errand-filled kind of day to give you the energy boost that you need.

You just have to pick your base and proteins first, followed by side dishes, and finish it off with a sauce of your choice.
