CEBU: Pino Filipino Cuisine

This restaurant in Lahug, Cebu City is fast becoming the favorite place of buffet lovers. Pino, which means "fine," offers diners an elegant buffet experience.


The restaurant has a very lovely old world interiors. It transports you back in a different era. Its like having a meal "somewhere in time." I guess it would be nice if the restaurant requires diners to dress up in Filipiniana attire. ;)




My friend and her sister are celebrating a joint-birthday dinner and since they haven't tried the place yet, they immediately made reservation for the whole family, including me. Dinner buffet costs P399.00 only. Wow!

We also got lucky because according to one of the owners, they are offering new dishes for the buffet menu.

Alugbati and Danggit Salad. I was apprensive at first to try this but had a plate when my friend's mom commented that its delicious. Aside from the alugbati, it also has kamote tops and some crispy chips which I can't seem to identify. Dressing was citrus vinaigrette.




Stuffed Squid With Paella. OMG! The squid was fresh and cooked perfectly, not rubbery. Of course, I skipped eating the paella (rice). I'm pretty sure it tasted great.


Lamb Caldereta. This made my heart sing. The lamb was so tender and flavorful. I had 3 servings. Oh my! Very tender and flavorful. Rice Please! Hahaha.


Toasted pastillas. Love in sweet form. So good. I ate tons of this. I even took some home -- shhhhh! ;)



There are a lot of choices from the buffet but I don't want to spoil the fun of discovering it yourself. All I can say is- this is a must-try buffet restaurant when in Cebu.

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.
