Butterbean is in its soft opening and is there for the lovers of sweet. The cafe is strategically located near the best restaurants in town. You may choose to dine at Quest's buffet, Parklane's buffet, Simply J's, Kuya J's, or Surfin' Ribs and then drive or walk to Butterbean for your dessert. My personal preference is Surfin' Ribs. That way, I don't have to drive or change parking space to get my dessert. Surfin' Ribs and Butterbean are in the same block. In fact, they're in the same building.
Mismukuno Teppanyaki is a relatively new restaurant in AS Fortuna. It just opened this year. It's been flocked to by several customers even up to this day. Mismukuno is not even a Japanese name. I can guess what it means but I can't publish it until I get confirmation. If it's true, the name maker is very creative. :)
Pizza Republic by Giuseppe Genco is no longer new in town. It has been operational in Cebu since June this year. Yet, you never cease seeing this place full of diners.
I heard mixed reviews of this place. It's a subjective view that's attributed to the size of its pizza and its price. I just had to try them myself.
When we entered the place, a colleague of mine commented, "Ay bahay ni Mara Clara at Padre Damasu. Nasaan si Crispin?". He's referring to the famous characters of Jose Rizal's Noli Me Tangere. The house, now turned restaurant, looks like an old mansion from the Spanish era. Sitting nicely on the table is a picture of the old house before it got repainted. It's beautiful. I could imagine it must have been a comfortable house then.
I have only heard of Tuslob Buwa that's famous in Pasil and unique in Cebu during a visit to Misionaries of Charity. The idea is to cook pork brain and liver on a pan and wait for it to boil. Once it's boiling, dip your puso (hanging rice) on those bubbles for taste. Thus the name tuslob buwa or dip on the bubble. Tuslob Buwa is an economic way of eating because you only have to pay for your puso. In Cebu, you'll never get hungry!
Yesterday was another teambonding moment with my hardworking team. We have decided to eat lunch together at the newly opened City Times Square in Mandaue particularly the Tokyo Table. It has come highly recommended from friends who dined there during the weekend. True enough, we got out happy and satisfied. :)
Check out the food that are prepared on the table. These are only few of your sumptuous options. Drinks are also unlimited. Coolest! :)
My favorite Filipino masterpiece dishes are found in Abaseria. They make the best mongo soup and lechon kawali. I love the place because of its exclusive location too. It is only in this restaurant that you can shop while waiting for your food to be served. You will find all Filipino pasalubong that you'll need here too. They have all the delicacies from Luzon to Mindanao. They have tableya, otap, shrimp paste, vinegar, and so many more.
