Tj and I never know what to do when we go to Robinsons Magnolia, but we’re glad we checked out the food court yesterday because we stumbled upon a gem: Zigla! which boasts healthy food with organic ingredients. They offer rice dishes, pasta, wraps, juice blends, and even a variety of bread and cookies.
I ended up ordering the grass-fed beef with black rice and teriyaki sauce, and Tj asked for their free-range chicken with black rice and barbecue sauce. Each dish costs P199 and has only 300 calories. Apparently, Zigla! serves food unsalted, but you can ask them to salt your food if you want. Our food took a few minutes to prepare. It was then served to us wrapped in parchment paper. Nice and simple presentation right there.
If you’re planning on getting this, be warned: the portions are very small, exactly what 300 calories look like, to be honest. So why should you pay P199 for what looks like a tiny amount of food? It’s the quality and the ingredients you’re paying for here, not quantity. And we’re definitely not going to complain about the quality. We got good, no-frills food, and nothing tasted overly seasoned and heavy. The food also teaches you to really savor what you’re eating, not wolf it down.
Next on our list: the wraps!
