Black Saturday was a quiet time with most people either staying at home or out traveling somewhere to take advantage of the long Holy Week break. I was chatting with my aunt a few days before that and ended up planning to meet up for lunch. She later told me that my cousins wanted to tag along so we agreed to have lunch at The Vegan Dinosaur.
My aunt’s family also used to live in Manila like me. But they relocated back to Davao about a little over a year before I did. She still works in Manila, but the rest of her family is here. She comes home as often as she can, especially on long weekends. We live on the opposite sides of the city though so we don’t often see each other when she’s home.
TVD was my top-of-mind choice since its halfway from where we both will be coming from. There are also not many places for me to choose from where I can enjoy a purely plant-based diet.
So we were at TVD on Black Saturday. They were already there when I arrived. We spent the time catching up and enjoying the food. The best thing about dining with them, apart from the company and the stories, is that I get to try a lot more food than my previous visits when I was alone.
It was a fun and satisfying lunch. And it is one of the reasons why I love TVD. You don’t have to be vegan to enjoy their scrumptious dishes and treats.
