CEBU: Zubuchon

This is my first time to dine at Zubuchon although I've tasted their lechon and chicharon for more than several occasions already. The Escario branch is near the Capitol and also near to where I was staying.


It was super early when we arrived at Escario Central and Zubuchon is still closed. I think that was around 9am. I was meeting some Cebu-based friends and we were looking for a place where we can have breakfast.


I asked permission to take photos inside. I love the high ceiling and red chairs.


They also sell some shopping baskets! And other stuff like peanuts (with chicharon bits), Argao tablea (which I'm told is the best), dried mangoes, etc.


Zubuchon Chicharon. This was the main reason why I went to Zubuchon. I skipped the lechon this time because I'm traveling alone. I bought several packs for hubby and daughter. They really love this chicharon brand. Its not salty and doesn't have msg which I'm allergic to. I also bought peanuts with chicharon bits (so good!).


Kamias Shake. Sweet and sour at the same time. Its good and healthy especially if you eat lechon and chicharon. ;)


Fried Saguyon. These are tiny fishes found in Agusan in Northern Mindanao. Its a seasonal fish and I was lucky that it was available when I dined at Zubuchon. It comes with bagoong and vinegar dip. Best to combine the two. The fish tastes similar to dulong (a kind of small fish also). I wasn't able to finish this order so I had it wrapped and brought it home to Manila. This order costs P100.

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.

Michelin Star Dining at Putien, Pavilion KL

Michelin Star restaurants are suddenly multiplying especially in the Southeast Asean region with lots of homegrown restaurants getting the international recognition it deserves. One such restaurant is Putien,  whose dishes can be traced back to Fujian, China. Putien was awarded a 1-Star Michelin in 2016, this was in Singapore where the restaurant originated. It has then expanded with several restaurants in SG and in other countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China.
