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! :)
I've heard about a good barbeque place near Capitol and so we drove to try it out. There's nothing special about the place. It looks more like a converted garage. It has no walls. The floor is only made up of gravel. But when I look around the place, it's packed. So, I was even made more curious as to how the food tastes. True enough, I was not disappointed. The uniqueness of Yakski from all other barbeque places is the sauce. Go ahead and ask me the famous line of their servers... LOL Well, I'll give you a clue.
This February is truly a love month not only for romantic lovers but also for the nature lovers. This weekend, we have decided to get lost at Badian. I am proud to be a true blue Cebuano as I have been raised and have lived my whole life in Cebu City. However, I've never been to Kawasan Falls. What a shame! Well, today is the day that I say "not anymore". Yeah! I said that with enough conviction and pride! LOL I have always been apprehensive in going because my friends say it's a long walk from where you leave your vehicle.
La Vie Parisienne is quite an intimidating place when you're looking from the outside. You could easily see the collection of wines. My SIL (sister-in-law) Chai introduced the place to us tonight. Her magic words were, "I'll pay for the wine!" Of course! Why would I say no?! :D
I am glad I did. The place is beautiful! I especially love the garden. You'd be surprised too how affordable the food and drinks are. Here are some prices of the croissants.
