REDISCOVER “Green” Dining

Talk about “green-minded.”

Friends Chit Juan, Jeannie Javelosa and Reena Francisco – all food lovers – conceived the idea of bringing the produce of the farmers directly to the plate at a relaxed atmosphere and that would inspire people to live and eat sustainably. They sought another friend, Lot Tan (who owns the Le Bistro coffee shops) to allow them to transform her best CBD location into their flagship model, giving birth to LeBistroVert. Chef Sau del Rosario created the new menu, and green Architect Dan Lichauco designed the interiors.

The result – a new dine-in spot at the Makati CBD that not only serves excellent cuisine, but serve them with sustainaibility in mind. By that, Le Bistro Vert advocates eating healthier, and enjoying an abundance of fresh, wholesome, locally grown produce as it tries to source most of their ingredients from local farmers and producers, community groups, small organic farms or those which do not use any chemicals that are toxic to the environment.

LeBistroVert is strategically located at Streetside, Fraser Place, Streetside Fraser Place Tower

Valero Street, Salcedo Village, Makati City

Its mission-vision

Its homey and green interiors (seated at left, partly facing the camera is Ms. Chit Juan, one of the three founders of LeBistroVert)

Wine display

Mango smoothie (or I asked for a shake?) Either way, perfect for this summer heat, whew

Thinly-sliced, deeply-fried sweet potato with mayo dip

Thai Dory Style Fish Cakes is great for starters

It’s own version of Caesar Salad (with salted egg, tinapa [smoked fish], and Queso De Bola)

For main course, it’s a must to try this Tuyo (dried fish) Fillet and Chili Pesto Penne

Wasn’t able to try the dessert so this is worth coming back

Budget-wise, it’s relatively affordable (ranging from 120-300 per meal). More than the fresh taste and a healthier option versus the other fast food or usual offers from nearby establishments in the Makati CBD, knowing that you’re helping our local farmers and produce growers is a way to sustainably fully enjoy your meal. Indeed, LeBistroVert is worth a try.
