Peppy Olive: Wholesome and Delicious Food

October 13, 2020

Peppy Olive is highly-recommended if you are looking for delicious and affordable Mediterranean food.

Peppy Olive offers healthy and delicious Mediterranean food offerings. It’s the first restaurant that I think about if I am looking for a light and wholesome lunch without sacrificing flavor.

Peppy Olive: Wholesome and Delicious Food 

    I discovered Peppy Olive from an officemate. I used to buy salads from another restaurant but it was quite expensive so I just go there on rare occasions. 

     However, when my colleague found out where I usually bought salad, he recommended Peppy Olive for its great-tasting food and easy-on-the-pocket price. I couldn’t be happier for having had the opportunity to try Peppy Olive.

    The ambiance at Peppy Olive 


    I have not had the chance to eat at Peppy Olive because I usually order my salad to-go. However, Peppy Olive is just a small kiosk with a few tables on both sides. It’s really just an open space where people eat quickly while people pass by. 

    Just the same, it looks pleasant because it is located in a quiet corner. There are also no long waiting lines so it doesn’t get uncomfortably crowded. 

    The Food 


    What I like about Peppy Olive is the flexibility it offers customers in customizing their meals. They do offer rice meals though.

    If you opt to customize your meal, you can start by choosing your base and protein: pan-seared chicken, braised pork, beef kebab, fish kebab, and vegetarian falafel. These come with either multigrain rice, pita sandwich, or salad greens. 

    Next, you can choose two side dishes such as tomato and cucumber salad, chorizo and lentil salad, roasted vegetables, roasted tomato, Moroccan chickpea and carrot salad, cabbage slaw, couscous salad, and hummus. 

    Finally, you have to choose the sauce that you like: roasted tomato sauce, honey balsamico, Greek vinaigrette, charmoula, and white garlic sauce. 

    For the Peppy Specials or the set meals, you can choose from the following:

    • Chirpy Chicken Salad (made of Moroccan chickpea and roasted tomatoes in honey balsamico sauce) 
    • Kebab O’Fish (a rice meal that consists of chorizo and lentils, couscous salad and roasted tomato sauce) 
    • Falala-Fel (either rice or pita with cabbage slaw, tomato and cucumber salad, with white garlic sauce and roasted tomato sauce), 
    • Be Happy Beef Kebab (either salad or pita, and consists of tomato and cucumber salad, and roasted tomatoes in white garlic sauce); and 
    • Braised Perky Pork (either rice or pita, and consists of roasted vegetables and Moroccan chickpea salad in charmoula sauce)  

    If you love hummus, you can order any of Peppy Olive’s Hummus Bowls: Plain, Falafel, Chicken, and Pork. These are served with pita and your choice of side dishes. 

    Lastly, you can also order extra sides like chicken, braised pork, fish kebab, falafel, pita, rice, hummus, salad, and sauce. 

    After placing your order, you will have to pay for it then wait for your number to be called.

    Personally, I like to order falafel salad with Moroccan chickpea and carrot salad, and hummus, and charmoula dressing. The salad greens are the usual lettuce but sweet potato tops are added for extra nutrients and fiber. 

    Falafel is a great protein sauce and a delicious alternative to meatballs. It is deep-fried ground chickpeas, so it has a crunchy crust with a creamy center. Falafel is also great with pita bread (I remember having this first during our trip to Macau) or with rice. 

    I like the creaminess lent by the hummus to the salad. For those who are not in-the-know, hummus is a dip made of ground or mashed chickpeas and mixed with tahini (roasted ground sesame), lemon juice, and garlic. 

    I like hummus with pita as an appetizer and Khris and I would order it when it is available in restaurants. 

    Meanwhile, the charmoula (or chermoula) is a dip or dressing made of coriander, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, and salt. I like the flavor of coriander that’s why I always order charmoula. 

    Charmoula tastes predominantly of herbs and lemon, with a hint of salt and garlic. I would always prefer this dressing over traditional vinaigrette in salads. 

    As you can see, the food selection at Peppy Olive is made of healthful ingredients. Nevertheless, food is consistently delicious and fresh. 

    The verdict 


    Peppy Olive’s food selections are perfect for the health-conscious. They are made of wholesome items that can be beneficial to overall body wellness if they religiously adhere to its Mediterranean roots, which I think they do. That’s why I always go here if I want something healthy and delicious for lunch.

    Peppy Olive is located at Second Floor, Three Central, Valero Street, Salcedo Village, Makati City. For inquiries, you may call them at telephone numbers +639663206276 and +63288661271.
