CEBU FOOD TRIP: A Single Woman’s Appetite

As you all know, I eat a lot. So if someone tells me, “you’re so skinny, eat up.” I would glare at them with with a husky tone saying – “I AM A BIG EATER.” Kiddin. I have a big appetite (except for rice) and I thank GOD for my genes.

Hello everyone! I’m back with my foodie review. This is actually part two of my CEBU post. So where did I binge when I was in CEBU?

First stop was Blackbeard’s Seafood Island.

Located at Ayala Mall and I realized there’s a branch in Manila. Blimey. LOL.

Warm welcome from the crew.

Last day in town, I was so excited to try ABACA BAKING COMPANY, ranked #5 at Tripadvisor. It has a Wildflour feels, which is a fav of mine in Manila.

They have a lot of branches in CEBU but I believe this branch in Crossroads (Banilad) is the best place to dine.

Eggs Benedict, my fav!

Surprisingly good. They call this “Winner Winner Chicken Dinner” – Their famous chicken in gravy topped with maple syrup served with waffle. It sounded so weird but you have to order this one.

Fruits Waffle. So yummmm!

ABC Skillet Breakfast.

Hamburger club with Avocado!!! SO YUMM!!!

We are truly pleased with the food, service, ambiance as well as the price. I highly recommend this one when you’re in CEBU.

After a bellyful late lunch, I wanted to wine and cheese. Since I’ve tried La Vie in CEBU (they already have branches in Manila), we went to THE PYRAMID. I think they just opened last year? The exterior is superb but I like La Vie’s ambiance even more.

They have dessert selection which La Vie doesn’t have.

I didn’t like their cheese and salami selection, they don’t look so enticing. LOL.

So happy they have Brie though!!

Girls day out. Cheers ladies! Thank you for being so game!

Before heading to the airport, my mind was already set to try and bring some Rico’s Lechon to Manila. One of my bestie, Krish, recommend the spicy lechon… Sadly, they were already sold out that night. Rico’s Lechon is located nearby Mactan International Airport.

Full-house!

Those were take-out boxes. Sosyal, right? You have to pay 25 pesos for each box.
DSCF1799
YUMMMM!

I took home 1KG and asked ate to chop it evenly, the funniest part of it all was the fact that I carried 4 boxes when one box contained only 1/4. I was so sleepy didn’t bother to think straight. LOL. So hirap na hirap ako mag hand-carry.

It still is so crunchy even after the next day!!! SO YUM, DA BEST GYUD!!!! I like this one better than Zubuchon.

Until then, CEBU!!! You have my utmost heart. I am thinking of moving there? HAHAHA. You’d prolly see me mostly in ABACA, LOL. I hope my foodie review helped you with your travel to CEBU!!! Anyway, here’s my vlog if you haven’t watched it! Thank you!!!
