Where to find the best veggie food in Siargao, Philippines

Here’s my favourite places to eat veggie food on Siargao Island, Philippines.
When I first got to the Philippines I was a teeny bit concerned about the lack of veggie options, it was literally MEAT MEAT MEAT everywhere. The hostel we stayed at in Manila had one tofu dish on the menu which proved to be, without a doubt, disappointing.
I survived the month, however it wasn’t until right at the end of the trip when Thijs and I headed to Siargao Island in the East that I got to sample the delights of some AMAZING veggie food. Due to plans, and some unexpected exploring (looking for an ATM) we drove around the whole of Siargao, and we managed to find quite a few veggie food options along the way. Here’s the run down of what we ate, how it was and where you can find it on the map, should you ever find yourself on this wonderful island:
The main and most popular area to stay and visit, about 30 mins East of the ferry terminal in Dapa. We didn’t run short of options when we stayed here for a day or so.
Hostel, come burger bar! We sat outside in the front porch of this white, beach hut style shack and munched our way through two delicious burgers. I had the ‘take me to the garden’ (275PHP // £4.50) , which topped with aubergine was a tasty addition to the veggie patty. Served on a tray with fries, it’s the perfect way to fulfil a burger craving.
I think we probably ate here about three times in the end; during the whole trip we were both a sucker for finding a great place and then returning again and again! This Italian restaurant did pasta very well, and there was always a veggie option. Plus their Italian themed all day breakfast menu included bruschetta, omelettes and tasty cheeses – hence why we retuned mmm.
