Filipino Restaurant in Cebu - Sugbo Silog

Looking for a breakfast place in downtown Colon was difficult.

Pakalista Jon and I were done taking some photographs at the Basilica Minore del Santo Niño for the Sinulog and were looking for a non-fastfood (no offense Jollibee and McDonalds) and non-carenderia (not safe for our cams) type of place where we can eat breakfast and have some of those sunny-side up fried egg.

Mango Avenue would have been the location to look for such kind of Cebu restaurant but I didn’t want to go there because I didn’t want to get myself stuck in traffic when going to work afterwards.

We went to CDU in Mandaue reclamation area instead to have Filipino food at Sugbo Silog.

Big problem though -Jon is a VEGETARIAN and I’m a MEAT LOVER! What to do???!!

For tourists and locals alike, the Pakalistas have taken up the monumental task of identifying the great restaurants in Cebu to go to this Sinulog Sunday. This task is so difficult, they had to meditate over their choices in the Sto. Nino Basilica for hours. Read More »

It was already 10:00 PM and we haven’t had our dinner. No surprise there! That’s normal for us. Just an hour late from our usual. We were driving around Mactan Island looking for a place to eat. We can’t afford Sutikil, the Mactan Marina Mall was already closed, and surely we don’t want to go outside the island to look for food. Andok’s, beside the Gaisano Mactan Island Mall, was the only “decent” Cebu restaurant in Mactan we could find.

Five very hungry young souls out to experience Andok’s equals one interesting conversation and more…
