feta mediterranean restaurant greenhills menu + review

As you can see below, my photos are of different quality. That's because I have been returning to Feta for several consecutive days trying to sample as many dishes as I can. Some visits were unplanned hence the phone photos.

Feta is a newly opened Mediterranean restaurant along Annapolis St. in Greenhills, San Juan beside Atlanta Tower. If you are familiar with Bistro Miyake, it's what took over its old spot.

It is owned and looked over daily by Turkish nationals so the food is really authentic and the ingredients used are fresh and premium.




Aside from cooked food, they also sell some Mediterranean delicacies, jams and ingredients like all sorts of jams, flours and oils.



They also have a wood oven and serve freshly baked extremely delicious traditional breads. A must try on your first visit especially when prices start at just P40! They also make a great healthy afternoon snack with traditional Turkish tea.






Another great merienda option is their Turkish Pizza which only costs P120. It's the type you roll up. Yummy!

Turkish Pizza
Adana Kebab - P270
Bread Basket
I won't go into detail for every dish because this will turn into an extremely long and possibly boring post. Let me just say that so far, nothing has disappointed me yet. Everything I've tried has been extremely delightful. Good enough for me to consider Feta as the best Mediterranean restaurant in Manila, price x quality-wise.

Iskender - P350
As a result of my multiple visits, I have developed some favorites and that I will share with you.

First, their Iskender. I don't know of any other restaurant that serves this in our country. I fail to remember if Greeka does but anyway, Feta's is really affordable considering the size of their serving. It is mouthwatering and terribly hard to resist. So hard that I end up ordering it each time. I know if I don't, Dennis will and I'll just spend the rest of our meal feeling jealous.

It's finely sliced beef in a special sauce served with yoghurt and Turkish rice or bead. You might want to ask them to serve the bread/rice on the side instead. It's pure heaven.

Turkish Tea
Their salads are also worth trying. Different but good, extremely refreshing for the warm weather and perfect for those trying to lose weight. Most of them have feta cheese and fresh olives...


It's also great that you can opt to order a Baklava in bite-size for just P50. Perfect size to cap off a meal. If you're a sweet tooth, you can also order the full size for P150.

Baklava

Their Falafels are also mmmmmm...salivating already. Have it with fresh bread and order some freshly baked warm pita to go along with it. You won't be sorry.

Falafel
My daughter's favorite and mine too before I tried their Iskender, the Adana Kebab. One serving is huge and perfect if you're in the mood for something clean tasting and delicate. The flavor of this dish relies on the freshness of the ingredients and the umami factor of their Turkish rice. Don't be fooled though, it is also heavy on the belly once you finish it off with a flourish from the pita that comes with it.

Adana Kebab - Chicken
And lastly, their pizza which I was a bit hesitant to try at first because it isn't a native Mediterranean dish. I though it would be a waste of money but no. It is the best pizza I've had this side of Manila. It's huge and very affordable at just P340.

The crust is perfection and their tomato/pizza sauce is the right amount of sweet/tang. I think they make it from scratch with fresh tomatoes.

Another must-order for me during every visit is their Yoghurt drink. It works wonders to calm the stomach especially after a bad hangover.

Margarita Pizza, Yoghurt Drink, Fresh Mango Shake
I have been doing cartwheels eversince they opened. I think it's great that I have another quality option nearby and not just Chinese. (You know my area is saturated with those and I am up to my ears in Yang Chow.) It's a plus that Mediterranean food is one of the healthiest cuisines around. Mostly grilled and really, really clean on the palette. They're also vegan friendly. Perfect timing now that I am trying to get more fit and healthy, it's also located at the ground floor building of my Crossfit Box so what could be better than that? 

Please come, try it out, give them business. I assure you, it's worth the travel. I have nothing to gain from this post, I just want to help them out cause their food and price points are really good and I'm a bit worried cause their location is know for being bad luck for business. Let's help them stay open for a long time! :)

sunday dress

Admittedly not the best pictures ever...(we have yet to learn the art of interesting looking photographs with flash)...but I wanted to document this outfit since it's rare that I get decked out in something as demure as this.

Still at the Dove Summit here (read more about it in this post) and still required to wear white, I re-used the camisole seen in this post and paired it instead with an old midi skirt I purchased ages ago in Hong Kong. I normally get rid of my clothes pretty fast, less than a year maybe? But this has managed to survive. I can never seem to let it go. Maybe it's the quirky rocking horse print or the nice, silk fabric. Not sure but I'm glad the midi is coming back into style, a chance to re-wear some old favorites. :)

nourish juice review - cold-pressed and affordable

I have long been a a fan of juicing (as seen in this post.) I know that me and my family are unable to consume (even close to) the recommended daily allowance of fruits and vegetables no matter how much I try to tweak our daily menu and this worries me, especially for my daughter. I want us to be healthy and I have already experienced the added energy and alertness after consuming a green smoothie or a raw meal and I want the same for them which is why I bought us a juicer. Nothing beats raw but unfortunately, due to time constraints, I am unable to juice as often as I like.

Which brings us to ready made, home-delivered, cold-pressed juice.

There are many brands out there to choose from, the only problem is, some are either super expensive or taste really bad...believe me, it can get pretty awful at times.

Nasty enough to put off most first-timers which is a shame considering its many health benefits.

Juicing doesn't have to be dreadful and Nourish Juice gets that. Their recipes are a combination of a perfectly balanced ratio of fruits and veggies for a refreshing daily drink and they're priced quite competitively as well at just P125 for a 250ml bottle and P195 per 350ml bottle.


You can also opt to avail their 1 day/2day/3day package which includes 6 bottles/day, 2 organic teas, a thermal bag and delivery.


Having fresh, cold-pressed juice daily is a great way to supplement your daily diet. It's not just for people who are trying to lose weight or detoxify. It's for everyone, including kids and Nourish Juice is yummy enough even for the pickiest eater to consume. My faves are their Watermelon Lemonade, Opulent Orange and Green Gusto. They're the perfect invigorating drink for these hot summer months.

bare minimum

This was one of my outfits for the Dove Summit (read more about it HERE). We were required to wear white all weekend and I realized that I don't really own a lot of plain white clothes let alone a white dress so I just had to make do with what I had.

I came up with a very basic black and white look:

summer street style
I so, so love these skorts from SM Ladies Fashion. They're a great alternative to another favorite of mine: the origami skort :P So glad I managed to snag another one in white last week at SM Moa.
