Keto Hub Iloilo is a keto-friendly restaurant in Guzman Street, Mandurriao, Iloilo City. They serve meals that are for the ketogenic diet, or “keto” for short, which is a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet that has been shown to help some people lose weight.
The idea behind the diet is to drastically reduce your intake of carbohydrates, which forces your body to burn fat for energy instead of glucose (from carbohydrates). Some people use the keto diet for weight loss, while others use it to manage certain medical conditions.
Keto Hub Menu
Their menu is pretty simple and straightforward. You can get your coffee fixed with their hot or iced coffee, pizza, pasta, and desserts like brownies and cakes and they also have OMAD breakfast.
What We Had
We had iced coffee – Spanish Latte and Caramel. These were keto-friendly as they use Monk Fruit to sweeten the drink instead of sugar.
We also had their pizza (supreme) from the menu which tastes exactly like what a pizza should taste. Cheesy, savory, satisfying. There is no difference in what a pizza is supposed to taste. Instead of regular all-purpose flour, they substituted it with almond flour. The crust is different in a good way, it’s like eating your favorite crusty pie in every bite.
We also get to try their keto version of aglio olio which uses Shirataki noodles instead of regular pasta. The looks and tastes are different than the ordinary aglio olio we can have in other restaurants. But it is still worth a try as the savory bits of bacon and spices is enough to coat the neutral flavor of the noodles.
Aside from the keto restaurant, the place also houses keto-friendly grocery items selling the likes of almond milk, almond flour, shitake noodles, and other ingredients you may find useful if you wish to make something keto-friendly in the comfort of your home.
They also house a mini-bar where you can grab your favorite liquor after a long day of work.
