Short and Sweet Cebu Visit Plus Cebuano Favorite Eats

Cheap Seafood in Bantayan Island

Spending 12 days in Cebu may be a tad too long for regular tourists to this island province. But am not a tourist, am a Cebuana, and may I add a proud, beautiful one. Hahaha hirit pa dyud. =)

This was our first visit this year, my husband and I. 12 days is short but we’ll take it. Our next Cebu visit will be this December 31. Lol, hahabol lang sa New Year’s Eve hehe.

Visiting Cebu is always a happy occasion. I get to be with my family again, see my Lolo and Lola, explore new places, and of course, eat. Cebu food trip was one of our main goals for this post-summer trip, Titus and I.

Cebu Restaurant Review: Big Flat Bread Pizza and Pasta

Big Flat Bread Godfather Pizza

New restaurants are sprouting in Metro Cebu that it’s challenging to maintain a list of new dining establishments and their specialties. I tried to keep such a list before for you never know when a craving hits you and a list would have come in handy. But trying all new restaurants would seriously wreak havoc to your finances so am glad then that there are group buying sites like Groupon Philippines with deal offers for restaurants I haven’t yet tried. It allows me to try out new restaurants at a discount just like in the case of Big Flat Bread located in the complex called Ridges in Mabolo, Cebu City.

Say you are a tourist on a 3D/2N Cebu vacation or even on a one day trip and it’s your first time in the Queen City of the South.  You happen to find yourself in SM Cebu and suddenly got hungry so you wonder what’s the best local restaurant to try out? The answer would of course depend entirely on you and your companions and what kind of food you are currently craving. But if you ask me for Penfires recommendations on local restaurants inside this giant mall, the top picks are  Neo Neo, Dimsum Break, Ayer’s Lechon and Flame It Burger.

In a recent episode of CNN show “Parts Unknown”, host and chef Anthony Bourdain was introduced to Halo – Halo. “Oddly beautiful” were his description of this favorite Pinoy icy treat. Surprisingly, he got his first taste of this cold dessert from a Jollibee branch in LA – Koreatown.

Sometimes it makes you wonder how small the world has become. A pinoy favorite available in an area in the United States populated with Koreans. But yah the world is becoming smaller and smaller, many contends it’s no longer 6 degrees of separation but rather it has become 4.74 degrees, thanks to Facebook lol.
