Better value for money buffet at Grand Majestic

By on August 11, 2016
Despite the recent entry of big-name brands in Cebu, Grand Majestic still is among the very few remaining better-valued buffet restaurants in the city. Although their prices (Php 550 for lunch and Php 650 for dinner) have increased a little bit since the last time I visited here, the quality of the food has thankfully not changed.

Post-election hangover at Sulbing Dessert Cafe

By on May 21, 2016
Although Sulbing cafe also offers crepes, coffee and toasts, it undoubtedly specializes on bingsu, a much-loved Korean dessert that's similar to our local halo-halo. But compared to the latter, it's actually recommended not to mix the finely shaved ice with its mountainous toppings. Instead, you scoop delicious spoonfuls out of this mound.

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.

By on October 19, 2015
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.

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.

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.
