HEALTHY and homegrown. Ain’t that an ideal combination when it comes to dining?
Yet there ís surely one resto in uptown CDO that fits exactly that description. Located at the west wing in the ground level of SM City Cagayan de Oro, Cuchara Verde serves healthy gourmet food that is sourced locally and responsibly.
Of course, we all know that Cuchara Verde means Green Spoon which loosely translates to clean eating. Indeed it is. All of the chicken and egg ingredients concocted at Cuchara Verde come from its sister company, Cenyu Whole Foods, which has been known to produce quality Probio Chicken & Eggs for the past ten years in this part of Northern Mindanao.
Cuchara Verde offers popular comfort foods you already know and love like Fried Chicken and Chickan Inasal as well as other non-chicken options like the Beef Taco Quesadilla (A Must Try!!!), Beef Kare Kare, Gambas Al Ajilio, Fresh Lumpia and Seafood Marinara Pasta. They also offer some unique eats that are sure to blow your mind like their Chicken Tikka Masala, Grass-Fed Lamb Stew, Creamy Spinach & Egg Skillet, Asian Quinoa Salad and Beef and Lamb Burger.
For desserts, they serve Superscoops Vegan Ice Cream, Fogcity Creamery Artisan Ice Cream, Picole healthy pops, Frozen Brazo and some occasional cakes and native desserts. For drinks, they got pour over brewed coffee with options for Don, Hazelnut or Moreno; as well as craft teas (creamy caramel, fitspiration, beauty sleep, chocolate rooibos, vanilla rose and sunset brew). They are the only restaurant to offer drinks like Zevia, Sparkling Water and other Zero Calorie and Zero Harmful Ingredient Drinks. They even serve Kombucha and Kefir, which they make in-house, to aid digestion after that healthy meal.
Cuchara Verde assures its valued dining clients that they serve only foods that have no preservatives, minimally processed, responsibly sourced and tapping local suppliers as much as possible. It is open during mall hours which is from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily.
Cuchara Verde takes its inspiration from Cenyu Whole Foods, a Whole Food Store & Cafe that sell Cenyu Probio Chicken and Eggs as well as other healthy and clean whole foods sourced from around the country.
Cenyu Probio Chicken and Eggs was founded ten years ago with a simple experimentation of replacing harmful antibiotics with beneficial probiotics to raise chickens. Probiotics has been proven through various research and studies to promote strong immunity, healthy gut and liver, excellent digestion and balance nutrition in raising chicken and eggs. Grown slower and harvested longer. It takes 38 to 45 days for Cenyu Probio Chicken to achieve a live weight of 1.5kg. Premium quality meat ia achieved naturally. Fed with responsibly sourced grains, legumes and supplemented daily with natural based vitamins and probiotics, Cenyu Probio Chicken and Eggs is, by far, the healthiest source of protein one can find.
Cenyu Whole Foods has a Flagship outlet along 9th-16th Streets in Nazareth, this city. Aside from its own brand and other selected products, Cenyu Whole Foods also serves breakfast such as The Big Breakfast Plate, Probio Chicken Longganisa Plate, Probio Chicken Adobo Flakes Plate, Probio Roasted Chicken Plate and Probio Chicken Sandwich. These selections along with their Probio Chicken and Eggs are available for delivery daily through Streetby.
It is open from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. all week from Monday to Sunday.
