Grilled Rosemary Chicken (P225 + SC) with Roasted Tomato and Cucumber Sauce. (Rosemary Marinated Chicken Breast)

This is a certified Atkins/ South Beach diet compliant meal. I loved the grilled chicken dipped in the sweetness of the tomato sauce accented by the taste of rosemary. I can eat this everyday.

Who says that a healthy meal needs to be expensive? Piquant was very creative in terms of serving healthy food with the right combination of taste and color of the ingredients.

Thai Style Chopped Chicken with Basil and Chiles (P245+). sauteed chopped chicken with eggplant and bell peppers – served with brown rice.

  1. Back when I used to work across the street from RCBC, we used to eat at Piquant. It’s one of the very places you can get healthy food that actually tastes good — and is affordable. It isn’t surprising, because the owner (a friend of mine) is from a restaurateur family; he used to own Insomnia in Malate years ago, and Luce after that. It’s quite apropos that you suggested eating here after watching Avenue Q, because Piquant’s owner is a theater actor himself. πŸ™‚

  2. I used to eat at Piquant a lot when my office was only a block away. My favorite was the tandoori chicken with lentils. I’d eat it with brown rice and a fresh carrot shake. The only thing that wasn’t that great there was the grilled tanigue that a friend had ordered once. Otherwise it’s a good place to go for healthy munching.

  3. Awesome I made Our Awesome Planet (I’m the one in the black shirt white tie LOL)! My first time at Piquant and it was delicious. I had the apple cinnamon pancakes with chicken+bell pepper omelet. It also came with a side of fruit. Menu was extensive and the fun health facts in the menu was interesting. Overall the food looked real healthy but that seemed to be offset by the large portions. But hey more food for the buck is always a good thing especially good food.

  4. since we arrived early for the avenue q show, my fiance and i had our dinner there. the food was good. we had shredded beef pasta, grilled chicken w/ dijon mustard sandwich and strawberry-mango iced tea. it was a nice place to have dinner.

  5. i just tried the tofu cheesecake there and it tasted awesome! i wonder though if it was really all tofu and no cheese AT ALL?
