They've got great hummus, too!
If your New Year's Resolution has been to "eat healthier," for the past few years now, we'd be the last ones to judge. Unless you take the time to prep your
Medley is the new Mediterranean concept that's set to open at the ground floor of Fully Booked High Street. "It's a grab-and-go [concept] aimed towards the working professional looking for a quick lunch," shares owner David Tweg. "Someone who's not looking to sit and wait around."
Just because you can get your food quick and easy doesn't mean Medley sacrifices flavor and freshness. All wraps, bowls, and pizzas are made fresh and assembled upon order. Produce and ingredients are locally sourced-except for the spices, which are shipped from Israel. "Mediterranean food is big on freshness," explains Tweg. "So we try to maintain that."
Medley offers a varied menu of warm bowls, salads, sandwiches, and pizzas, but they are open to customizing. "If you want to swap an ingredient out for another, we can do
Those looking for a vegetarian option should go for the Falafel Crunch (P329/Hummus + Pita, P249/Mediterranean Rice). The falafels don't taste anything at all like beef or pork but that doesn't mean you won't get addicted to the crunchy, savory fritters all the same. These get paired with fried eggplants, a beetroot salad, tabouleh salad, and a bright and zesty lemon tahini sauce.
For busy, always-on-the-go folks, go for the equally filling sandwiches, which are more like wraps. You have the option to have your wrap in a
Medley also offers pizza, which might come as a surprise for a Mediterranean restaurant. "Our pizza is more of a Turkish pizza. It doesn't have tomato sauce," shares Tweg. "Authentic Turkish pizza doesn't have cheese, but we added cheese because here [in the Philippines], you can't call it pizza without cheese." You won't really miss the lack of tomato sauce in The Legaspi (P299), named after Legaspi Sunday Market where they still have a Mediterranean stall. A tasty pesto sauce paired with the spice from a generous drizzle of garlic sauce makes up for it, and toppings of red bell pepper, spinach, beef kebab, and a Morrocan carrot salad add color and flavor.
Eating healthy can be difficult, but Medley is here to make things easier. Plus, their colorful, flavorful bowls and wraps won't make it feel like you're depriving yourself-in fact, it's more like you're treating yourself.
