A lechon manok that’s worth queueing for

By on April 2, 2017
But like all good things in life, you just have to be patient for your turn at Joules Lechon Manok. Trust me when I say that this humble lechon manok stall in Talamban is worth waiting for.

A sulit meal and a sulit phone

By on October 23, 2016
Mingnan is located at Plaridel Extension, a one-way street that bisects across what looked like the back alleys of business establishments along Osmeña boulevard. But this eatery, beloved by those who know about it, serves very budget-friendly and freshly-cooked value meals.

#FoodcourtFinds – Belly Buster at SM Seaside Cebu

By on May 28, 2016
Each Belly Buster slice by the way was packed with flavor but not to the point that the spices overpowered the meat. The skin was also roasted to a delightful crisp. Most of all, it was not as greasy compared to that of their more established competitor.

Seafood City’s SUTUKIL packages

By on March 1, 2016
If you get the first two letters of these three dishes, you'll have the SUTUKIL. It is a trifecta, if you will, of three recipes - grill, stew and raw. When you come to think of it, it's not that hard to execute too.

Eats around Mandaue: Levantine shawarmas, two cafes and the best ramen in Cebu

By on February 2, 2016
There’s a lesson or two here of course. That I have consumed more calories than what’s necessary. And that there’s certainly more to Mandaue, a city in Cebu that seems to be plagued with EDSA-esque traffic woes lately.

Tatang’s- party packages and their extra crispy boneless lechon

By on December 10, 2015
Despite my attempts at a pre-holiday detox, I found myself at Tatang's Boneless Lechon not too long ago. It was my second visit in less than a week. I still don't know why I couldn't resist the temptation.

Delicious and authentic Italian at Pigafetta restaurant

By on November 7, 2015
It is said that a good Italian dish can be whipped with just 5 simple ingredients. But what is often missed out from that statement is this, that mastering the basics in the kitchen, let alone an Italian one, takes a lot of patience, some luck and years of hardwork.

Yesterday's balut was only the third that I ate for the last five years in my life. If my memory still does not betray me, the most recent one I devoured was during December of last year.

We expected a rainy staycation at Quest Hotel and Conference Center, a 3-star hotel in Cebu City. But for some strange case of good fortune, the sun was up during that fateful weekend.
