Torta De Argao

After our Dumaguete trip, we were supposed to go straight to Cebu City but since Tita N and Tita M joined our trip, they convinced me that a short stop to Argao to visit the church and museum won't change our schedule drastically. O-kay.



Argao town proper has a very nice centuries old church that is rich in history and artifacts. Yes, one must find time to visit Argao Museum and the church. I'm glad that I got bullied into going to Argao.


And because I did my research and I've been to Cebu a few years back, I was told that Argao is known for its torta just like Carcar is known for its lechon. Luckily, I espied this big banner (who can't miss this, right?) along our way to the church. I insisted on stopping to buy some goodies.

Torta. This is different from the torta that we know here in Manila because when we say torta, an egg and eggplant dish comes to mind.



I've read somewhere that tortas are made from eggs yolks and lard so it is laden with cholesterol. Good cholesterol that is. Tastes good!

It has then expanded with several restaurants in SG and in other countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China.

Ooma-zing Food!

Sharing one of our resto-favorite! We've been dining here for about three years now and as much as I'd like to keep this resto a secret, it's already out in the open about how good the food is at Ooma. Ooma is a Japanese-fusion restaurant so don't expect the usual Japanese dish preparations but be ready for not only a visual feast but a fusion of east and west. For starters, we had this delightful cheesy maki. I believe this is on a limited run on the menu so I really can't recall what it's called. Crunchy and cheesy really, my daughter love this so much.
