What to Eat and Shop at EarthOrigins Quezon City

10:44:00 PM Capturing Footprints 0 Comments

The newly-opened Quezon City branch of EarthOrigins Marketplace+Café has curated healthy and locally-produced options that are consumed with less, if not totally free, guilt at all.

Say for instance in the some drinks and chocolate bars, the sweetener used is coconut sugar. Thus, diabetic people can grab some when they get into this two-storey shop-cafe without worrying of their health.

Honestly, organic restaurants and shops are becoming boring. But this new branch has every reason to grab your attention.

Black Bun Burger

I am not sure if this is the same black burger that fast food chains offer during Halloween. The  interesting black bun from EarthOrigins is prepared with activated charcoal that detoxifies and cleanses the body. Yeah, some sort of black magic or witchcraft. 

Korean Fried Cauliflower

This is a very intriquing finger food or pulutan. Referred as KFC, the food is literally breaded and fried cauliflower. It is an excellent form of re-engineering cauliflower, one of the hated veggies by kiddos. It looks like friend siomai so kids will be lured into picking one. 

Lechon Kawali, Lechon with Thyme Dip

At this point, I was totally suprised to see lechon and lechon kawali on the menu. According to Rman Lorenzo, owner of EarthOrigins, the pigs that they use are raised in South Cotabato. Down there, pigs are fed with rice husk. And before the pigs are turned into food, there is a two-week detoxifying period to make sure that the pigs are free from chemicals and other unwanted elements. Outstanding! 

Juice in Jar

Right in front of you, the process of juicing can be demonstrated as their juice offers are supplemented with a machine that could be purchased at this branch. Raw sliced sayote, carrots, celery, and other ingredients are thrown into the juicer. And as the liquids are extracted, these are collected in its jar container with no additional procedure. The ready-for-takeout items may be stored for three to four days.

Bamboo Tumbler and Ballpen

Bamboo tumblers became a top talk of the town when Senator Pia Cayetano gave her co-senators similar product for some environmental awareness. While at EarthOrigins, I was fancying bamboo items. So when I come back there, I will make sure that I buy one of the items.

Organic Chocolate

When we were kids, we were often asked not to eat chocolate because of its high sugar content. An innovation for health's sake, organic chocolate at EarthOrigins uses coconut sugar for sweetener. The cacaos used are grown in Davao. Well, I find their dark chocolate better than milk chocolate. 

Guyabano Drink

Island Flow is one of the brands inside EarthOrigins producing healthy beverages. It secures guyabano fruits from Laguna and wild, raw honey from the island of Mindoro to create the healthiest guyabano beverage. Since there is no preservative added to it, the guyabano drink can only last for six months in the shelf.

Coco Ginger Drink

When I tasted the coco ginger, it instantly became my new favorite. As we all know, raw ginger is really not pleasant. But with coconut add on, the taste buds and the throat easily and smoothly take in the drink. High in fiber, the drink could be a good buddy for diabetic people. It's also safe for those who are acidic. The best thing about it is that it's okay to drink it in the morning even without eating breakfast.
