Every trip I go on, food is always a big part of it. I guess that's just part of who I am and what I like to do. This set of photos is way overdue, and going through my photos of the Cebu trip made me realize that I didn't actually take a lot of food photos! This trip was also a safe one in terms of food - while most of the stuff I had was good, nothing was adventurous or strange. ;)
Singaporean Chili Crab. For PHP500, it is practically a steal!
Mussels in white wine sauce.
Cebuano Pochero. This was a pleasant surprise. I was expecting the pochero I am used to - with tomato sauce. It tasted more like tinola - a Filipino dish with ginger. The serving size was a huge surprise as well - literally.
The ubiquitous fresh buko (young coconut) juice. You can't come to the Philippines and not have this!
A pina colada for the birthday girl, please.
I met up with friends at a local motorcycle bar. We tried the fish and chips and BLT. Of course, with beer to wash it down.
The freshness and the price of food in Cebu is one good reason to consider a move. Most other things seem to be really cheap as well, as my friend who has relocated there told me. From rent to cheap car insurance to fare - practically everything, I think. The thing is, Cebu has never really appealed to me. Then again, there's the food. ;)
