Here’s why this stall serves the best shake in Cebu

By on July 11, 2017
Recognition from award-giving bodies should be taken with a grain of salt. But for being declared as Cebu's best fruit shake, Tropic Fruit Bar, rightfully deserves it.

Peri-Peri Charcoal Chicken is now in Cebu

By on January 18, 2017
From its first restaurant in Greenhills back in 2006, the Filipino-owned Peri-Peri Charcoal Chicken has since expanded to a handful more stores around the Philippines and very recently, overseas in Myanmar. Having said that, I actually wonder why they took quite awhile to open a branch in Cebu

An unassuming chicken wings place

By on January 17, 2017
Although Southside Chicken Wings is quite near my apartment, I was able to visit this unassuming open-air restaurant only a few days ago. This was largely in part because of a colleague's glowing recommendation - that she finds their affordable wings delicious and cooked home-style as well.
