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.

Dine at Royal Saigon

Royal Saigon Restaurant is one of the most popular tourist choice in Ho Chi Minh City. Maybe it is also because it is located at Bui Vien, which is the tourist hub in HCMC. And it was actually my friend who wanted to eat at Royal Saigon, I just happily tagged along.



Another Day in Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty has been a family favorite since it opened its doors at S Maison Conrad in Pasay City. Although the location is far from us, the restaurant was always the first one that comes to mind when we go malling in the area. Now, it has opened branches in Podium Mall and SM Aura Premiere.


Max's Beef Salpicao and Adobo Ribs

Max's, one of the country's beloved restaurant doesn't just serve that "sarap" to the bones fried chicken but has a whole range of yummy Pinoy favorites on the menu such as kare-kare, sinigang na hipon, sizzling tofu, and others. But of course, every one is always excited when there's something new on the menu and Max's has two new dishes- Adobo Ribs and Beef Salpicao.
