Famous it’s upside down design. Don’t be shocked with you find a table mounted on the ceiling. Beautiful baked Pandesal with mayo tuna and bits of onion for crisp. Their coffee and WiFi wasn’t that great but I would recommend you to visit as a good and to try out their traditional Philippine cuisine. Because the table side me smelled soooooo gooooood. .

Sweet savory thick sweet with tender rib. Right amount of fattiness and it’s flavor just exploded in the palate. Together with their preserved veg, life can’t be better. .

BBQ Stick (P180) .

Similar sweet base marination. I always wonder how would the local eat a bowl of rice with just three sticks. After having one, I understood why. The meat might looked dry on the outside but the mouth just kept releasing its saliva to keep every mouth juicy. .

Located inside Robinson Shopping center. Not hard to find but best to visit them during lunch time as they do sold out some of the items on their menu. .

Located right at the central of their CBD. Filled with energetic stall owners and smoke of BBQ. .
|
The local loved to visit the Malay stall, Korean Kimchi stall, BBQ Chicken stall, Pad Thai stall and their local “mixed” rice stall.
.

I loved the variety but their pricing at this area isn’t “cheap”. Highly recommend their BBQ chicken because I saw the Chef chopping up the chicken. Even the chicken breast was dripping with its juices. Something I Learnt at Philippine Food. Their SEASONING is NOT light. .

Wide range of variety and attentive service crew. Their roasted meat was a little let down but other cooked food made up for it. In house made creep with apple sauce and topped with molten chocolate. Happy days.

Ranked one of the best in Philippine by World Street Food Congress. Strongly seasoned by garlic. The skin stayed crispy even leave open for hours. Must try with their in house chili sauce. The strong acidic sauce balanced with the fatty-ness. .

One downfall was the store was so hidden. Upstairs of a petrol station! Even with google map, it took me awhile to look for the sign. .

If you are looking for a quiet place to read and enjoy the aroma of coffee, this hidden cafe is great. Do take note that they only have 15 seater so visit at your own risk. 😊

Braised mellow, grilled pork belly and deep fried sardines. .
|
Even though many ordered the belly, I didn’t really like it as the strong seasoning wasn’t connect with my palate. The mellow and fish were great. The mellow was so good that I ordered a second (sweet mellow + savory pork = perfection). They fried the sardine till crisp. So crispy that even it’s fin can be eaten. .
|
If you don’t mind a little run down but super fresh ingredients, this is the place for you. .

Last meal served in this kitchen. They will close their restaurant for mini renovation. .

Mini Pandesal, Wagyu Cracker with sour sauce, salted egg prawn, steamed chicken soup with umi sauce and seaweed, purple rice cracker with smoked mackerel, mustard leaf wrap. .
|
All of the starters had a contrast of texture. Interesting flavors based on traditional Filipino cuisine (Sour + Savory).

Surprisingly good burrito and other Mexican cuisine. Clean place, decent service and food for group. .

I won’t recommend the wings but highly recommend the taco and burritos. Nacho chips might be good starter if you are dinning with people you like. 😬 .

Their americano ranged from P100 to P140. Decent taste with awakening effect. The best things are their WiFi and study corner! The fastest and stable I experienced in Cebu. .

If you had saw the stall, you would never know that they would serve such good chicken. .
|
The brush of their secret banana ketchup sipped into the smoky chicken. Savory on the outside and tender in the inside. Great stall for takeaway and try to avoid the lunch and dinner crowd. .
