Zigla! Fresh, Healthy and Organic: Afffordable and Healthy Fastfood (Makati)

Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines

I'll admit, I had the impression that healthy food is often expensive, boring, inconvenient and inaccessible.  But, Zigla! Fresh, Healthy and Organic seems to solve all that!  It's an affordable and healthy fast food located at the Zuellig Building in the busy district in Makati.  They also have a branch in Robinson's Magnolia Food Court which I seem to have missed during my visit.

I've been a foodie since birth.  But, am I a health-conscious foodie?  Honestly, not until I recently encountered so many skin allergies sprouting about which made me conscious of what I eat.  My family became really disappointed when I've become quite a picky eater.  But, I'm actually glad I got a bit unwell because it awakened me to a healthy lifestyle.  I promise you, if you eat healthy food, you'll certainly feel the impact to your body in a holistic way including your energy and mood.

At Zigla!, you don't only get to see the ingredients of the food you'll order with their transparent packaging, they also list down the ingredients and nutritional information (such as the calroies, fat, saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbs, fiber, sugar and protein) per product on their menu.  They also list down significant attributes such as "Gluten-Free", "Sugar-Free" and "High-Fiber" which are very helpful!

They have a farm in Batagas so they guarantee that their food items are made from grass-fed beef, free-range chicken and farm-fresh organic produce.

The Korean Beef Salad has the following listed ingredients: Grass-fed Beef, romaine lettuce, goji berries, pumpkin seeds, red bell pepper, corn, nori and Oriental dressing.

Korean Beef Salad (215 php)
As you can see with the Korean Beef Salad, they don't scrimp on the ingredients.  The oriental dressing is surprisingly very sweet and flavorful so I'm guessing it's stevia sweetened.  The korean beef was so tender.  The romaine lettuce and bell peppers were really crunchy.  The pumkin seeds, goji berries, corn, nori and sesame were excellent complements too.

Tuna Mediterranean Salad (199 php)
The Tuna Mediterranean Salad has the following listed ingredients: tuna, romaine lettuce, pumpkin seeds, white cheese, tomatoes, red bell pepper, olives, egg, croutons and citrus dressing.  I'm actually curious on what the croutons are made of and how they manage to made that Gluten-Free.  This is a lighter option than the Korean Beef Salad.

Brown Rice Meals (Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free and High-Fiber)

I'm quite impressed that despite the affordable pricing, the Fish Tausi with Brown Rice makes use of the healthy cobbler fish.

The texture of the fish is superb!  It goes well with the tasty black bean sauce, onions, leeks and red bell pepper.

Wraps (Sugar-Free and High-Fiber)
The Wraps are convenient on-the-go options.

Beefy Cheesesteak Wrap (135 php)
The Beefy Cheesesteak Wrap has the following listed ingredients: grass-fed beef, high-fiber oil tortilla (first time to try this!), romaine lettuce, bell pepper, onions, cheddar cheese, low fat mayo and barbecue sauce.

The high-fiber oil tortilla is not as soft as other tortilla's I've tried but it's okay.  I enjoyed this very much!  The meat was savory and tender.  The sauce is dominantly cheese and mayo that I could hardly distinguish the barbecue sauce.

buffalo chicken wrap
Buffalo Chicken Wrap (145 php)
An equal contender to the Beefy Cheesesteak Wrap is the Buffalo Chicken Wrap.  It has free-range chicken, high-fiber olive oil tortilla, romaine lettuce, cheddar cheese, low fat mayo and buffalo sauce.  I found this easier to munch because the chicken were cut in cubes and were very soft but very tasty as they are covered in buffalo sauce.

Herbed Chicken Sandwich (135 php)
Although I'm not fond of sandwiches, I really enjoyed the Herbed Chicken.  It has a high-fiber wheat loaf, herbed spread, free-range chicken.

I like how the ingredients were evenly spread throughout the sandwich.  The herbed spread was so aromatic and flavorful!  To my surprise, this Herbed Chicken Sandwich is actually a hefty meal in itself.


Zuper Juice

Roselle Bignay Soda (150 php) and Green Juice (135 php)
The Natural Fruit Soda is probably the healthiest soda I've ever encountered.  The Roselle Bignay Soda is a carbonated drink with rich roselle flower flavor, probiotic inoculant, soluble fiber, stevia and unrefined cane sugar.

The Fresh Detox Juice selections were however more to my liking. 

The  Green Juice has kale, parsley, apple, celery and lemon.  I bet if I don't tell you what's in it, you'd never guess you're having veggies!

Orange Juice (99 php)
The Orange Juice has a safer flavor which no one could resist especially the kids.  It has orange, carrots,  celery and lemon.

zuper juice
Yellow Juice (170 php)
The Yellow Juice is my favorite!  It has pineapple, apple, celery, lemon and ginger.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Overall, I'm very impressed with Zigla! Fresh, Healthy and Organic.  Their pricing and quality are beyond my expectations!  I just wish that they' have more branches so people like me can conveniently avail of it as often as we can.  It's certainly my kind of fast food.  I hope we can have more of this kind of fast food in the future.
