10 Things To Eat In Cebu

 

Everyone loves to share their favorite places to eat! So, I asked some of my Singaporean friends that I've taken around my hometown of Cebu to share their favorite eating spots in my city, and this is what they came up with.

 

 

 

All you need to know is Zubuchon has the best lechon.

Besides the famous lechon (P240 half kilo or SGD$7/P450 for 1kg or SGD$13.2), they also had the equally good Lechon Sisig (P190). Zubuchon has other dishes like Lechon Crispy Pata (P450 or SGD$13), Roasted Pork Belly (P380 or SGD$11) and Slow-Cooked Pork Belly (P220 or SGD$6.5) on the menu.

 

 

 

 

 

“Go to La Marea and eat all the desserts there,” my friend Trixie told me.

La Marea is a dessert place in Cebu that has a range of cakes and pastries at affordable prices. We went there twice during our stay in Cebu and tried quite a few desserts. Of course, there were hits and misses. Just make sure you try the warm Brownie Cup (P100 or SGD$3) which comes in flavors like chocolate, apple crumble, blueberry, and white chocolate.

 

 

 

 

 

I was reading some of the Cebu food blogs to research on new places to take friends to eat, and some of them raved about the food at Mooon Cafe (it’s spelled with three Os). I think a few reviews even went out on a limb to call it the best restaurant in Cebu.

It’s not hard to understand why Mooon Cafe is so popular. They serve decent food at affordable prices, and it has an electrifying atmosphere. We really enjoyed the Mexican Baby Back Ribs (P198 or SGD$5.8) and Mooon Steak (P176 or SGD$5).

For the best pork ribs in Cebu, go to Casa Verde. Their menu has a wide range of offerings like burgers (P180 or SGD$5.2), sandwiches (P158 or SGD$4.6), chicken (P170 or SGD$5), seafood (P178 or SGD$5.2) and of course, the best seller pork ribs (P198 or SGD$5.8).

 

 

 

 

 

It is a must to eat chicken inasal when you are in the Philippines. With 408 branches all over the country, Mang Inasal – Philippines' fastest growing barbecue fast food chain – is probably the most accessible option for chicken inasal.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cebu Larsian BBQ is the answer most people reply when you ask them what to eat in Cebu. Larsian is like our hawker centre with rows of stalls that serve BBQ meat and seafood.

*Larsian is near the Chong Hua Hospital.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There’s no such thing as too much lechon. Besides Zubuchon, CnT Lechon is another place that is famous for the roast pig.

We loved A Cafe by the Abaca group so much that we actually went there for dinner twice. Definitely a must-visit in Cebu.

The menu is fairly small: it serves all day breakfast items like Eggs Benedict (P335 or SGD$9.8) and Blueberry Pancakes (P295 or SGD$8.6); there are lighter options like fresh salad, soup, and sandwiches as well as main courses like Steak Frites (P795 or SGD$23), Angus Burger (P445 or SGD$13) and Herb Roasted Half Chicken (P525 or SGD$15.4)

 

 

 

 

 

 

A restaurant that has consistently been voted as one of the best restaurants in Cebu, Maya Mexican Restaurant (also under the Abaca group) is the place to go for good Mexican food.

 

 

 

 

 

 

No one leaves Philippines without getting brownies from Goldilocks.
