Weekends are the perfect time for pigging out. But who says you need to fill your tummy with stuff that's so good they're bad for you? We found the perfect spot to get your fill of healthy and really good eats.

Dad will love the Big Breakfast—waffles, breaded tofu strips, and mixed greens. Mom can have the Tofu Scramble (completely eggless!) that's served with taro chips. Kuya can get a Breakfast Burrito, packed with zucchini, carrots, bell peppers, spring onions, Mexican-style brown rice all wrapped inside a whole wheat tortilla. You and your sister can share a hearty bowl of Brown Rice Champorado (super yummy!) and split an order of Mini Buckwheat Pancakes.

If you're not big on breakfast, Pipino also serves entrees for lunch and dinner. Must-try: Mushroom Salpicao (you can't even tell there's no meat in it), Portobello Burger, Lasagna.  And don't forget to make room for dessert. Choose from their dairy-free homemade ice cream and vegan (no egg! no dairy!) cookies.
