Breakfast folks like myself can rejoice at the thought that there's another good and quiet place in Cebu where we can enjoy the first meal of the day.

Affordable, delicious buffet at Pino Restaurant

By on July 11, 2015
But even if there is no special occasion, I think that Pino will still be full. You see, ever since they opened in 2007, this restaurant has been known for their delicious and very affordable buffets.

Davao’s Seda Abreeza Hotel: advantageous location, contemporary interiors and understated elegance

By on May 30, 2015
There was a small boxing ring that was already set-up when my friend and I entered the lobby of Seda Abreeza Hotel in Davao City. Two pairs of red gloves were hung on its corners which contrasted the predominantly brown and gray color palette of this contemporary hotel in these parts.

Escape to Sumilon: Paradise revisited

By on May 24, 2015
As our bus weaved its way down to Bancogon port, I can already see Sumilon island in the horizon. I could make out its famed white sandbar that changes shapes and shifts locations depending on the season and the tide.

Meximama – An affordable Mexican diner that’s worth all the long trip to Mactan

By on May 10, 2015
He would later share to us that he and his partners launched Meximama, the first branch of which is at Marina Mall in Mactan, to serve proper Mexican food. With that in mind, the masa harina and the various chili peppers are all imported, if only to make their dishes as authentic as possible.

New restaurant feature: Ramen Sora

By on May 7, 2015
I wish though the answers were all on my bowl, perhaps hidden somewhere beneath the tamago, the slices of pork chasu and menma (pickled bamboo shoots) - all of which looked contentedly resting on the bouncy noodles immersed with the umami-laden broth.

New restaurant feature: Mrs. Jones’ Mealbox

By on April 22, 2015
It was named then after the Cebu's famous street, but the "Mrs" was only added because his partners believe that it is good feng shui to have 8 characters in their restaurant name.

Golden Cowrie’s Feast All-You-Can: unlimited baked scallops, crispy pata and other house favorites

By on March 22, 2015
At first glance, Golden Cowrie's buffet spread at their AS Fortuna branch is a bit underwhelming. I could easily count the number of dishes placed at one corner of this new 50-seater restaurant.

A quick but memorable breakfast at Abaca Baking Company

By on March 12, 2015
I wanted to wait for my good friend Virgil to arrive, but since the aroma of freshly baked pastries was already difficult to resist, I eventually gave in. I was then comfortably seated at a corner table at Abaca Baking Company, a new bakery/cafe at Crossroads in Banilad, Cebu.

Sinulog 2015’s See Cebu in a Carousel

By on January 18, 2015
I am pleasantly surprised to find out that this year's See Cebu in a Carousel looks different from the last time I featured the tarpaulin posters here. These tarps, which are still propped along the stretch of Osmeña Boulevard, provide the Sto. Niño devotees, the Sinulog party revelers and everyone in between, a glimpse of Cebu's various tourist spots.
