Golden Cowrie Filipino Restaurant in Cebu Philippines

A lot of people made a comment on my Hukad sa Golden Cowrie post, and most of them agreed on the poor service and food quality at the Terraces Ayala branch.

It may seem very contradicting that I recommended Golden Cowrie as one of the restaurants in Cebu to visit and dine in because I somehow trashed the Ayala Cebu branch.

Most of the good dining experiences I had of Golden Cowrie was at the SM branch because my family frequently go there.  This time around I’ll be featuring Golden Cowrie in Lahug.  Find out if my dining experience in this branch was better, great, or worse!

Banana Leaf Restaurant in Cebu Philippines

It’s been a while that I’ve wanted to dine at the Banana Leaf.  We checked out their menu last Christmas, and I was ecstatic to find out that they also have roti there.  So I said to myself that I’ll try this Thai Restaurant in Cebu and indulge in those roti (hopefully similar to Spice Fusion).

Fast forward to April 2009, and we finally got the chance to dine at the Banana Leaf. It wasn’t my craving for a roti that got us there but for the reason that Casa Verde and Sunburst were already full. Al Fresco dining at HIGH noon is not an option! Read More »

MB's Tavern Restaurant in Cebu Philippines Photography by Jeffroger Kho

MB’s Tavern is located (near Mactan Doctors Hospital) just a few kilometers from our house, but I’ve been there only a few times.  Most of the time I’m there with my high school friends (+ one other). They just love MB’s pizza!  Back when my friends head over to our house for a pakal session (me cooking baked mac), they usually grab a box of pizza from MB’s Tavern.

Bigby's Restaurant in Cebu Philippines

If you’re following this blog religiously, you may have noticed that in almost every food and restaurant review we make, there’s a backstory behind why we choose to dine at a certain place.

Dinner at Bigby’s Cafe and Restaurant at the Terraces Ayala Cebu was no different.  It had a backstory all right but it’s as shallow as Bigby’s serving bottomless ice tea unlike Sunburst.  But don’t get me wrong, that’s not the only thing Bigby’s has to offer.

Stick around to know what I love about Bigby’s Cafe and Restaurant.

Restaurant in Cebu Philippines: Flavours of China

It has been a while since I dined in SM City Cebu because I always find myself roaming around the Terraces Ayala Cebu.

My family had a wonderful dining experience the first time they tried the Flavours of China at the Northwing so I thought I’d try it as well.  My only apprehension was that (if I’m not mistaken) they have the same owner as Tempura Japanese Grill, and they may have the same policy regarding taking of food pictures.

Read on and join me as I taste the Flavours of China (and find out if there was any bloodshed!).

I almost had a Bruce Banner moment, not with rage, but with envy after hearing my boss talk about the wonderful dining experience he had in Cafe Marco at the Marco Polo Hotel.

          I was with my friends Fedge and Marlon one lazy Sunday last November in Olango Island… you know, the one with the much ballyhooed bird sanctuary. I had a very unforgettable experience man gud back in college when my class went there for a field trip… it was surreal but nice lol… that’s why I wanted to go back. Unfortunately for us, when we went there last November, there were not that many birds in sight. There were more fingers in both my hands than there were birds. A disappointment, I know. But that didn’t stop us from shooting away… with our cams, of course.

Da Vinci's Pizza Restaurant in Cebu Philippines

It was a Sunday night and a spur of the moment thing when my family decided that we go out for a pizza.  The only pizza places I know close to our residence are MB’s Tavern, JCA Gourmet Pizza, and Da Vinci’s Pizza.

I was not “feeling it” to go to the first two pizza restaurants mentioned and I was kinda craving for some Da Vinci’s Pizza because it has been a while since I had one.  The much raved about Shawarma Pizza at Da Vinci’s was also worth investigating.
