18 Restaurants in Manila Where You Can Get Your Organic Fix

It’s an organic takeover.

At first, organic food seemed to be a fad but with people going to the green side, it looks like organic is here to stay. Not to be confused with vegan, organic simply means the food is at least 95% free from pesticides, chemicals, preservatives and other synthetic additives, and is produced using environmentally and animal friendly farming methods. Other popular terms that are being used for organic are farm to table or wholesome.
