Wow! It seems you’ve been having a feast there! I’ve heard of a place in a Cebu called La Maison, true, they don’t offer traditional Filipino dishes, but they serve the best bang for the buck when it comes to ribs.
rachinoz101, you mean balut. No, I haven’t tried it yet. Don’t think I ever will. I’m adventurous but not quite that much. I have tried buad in the past though. That’s the salted and dried fish that gives off such an “aroma?” when it’s cooked.
goyo — how about bagoong — fermented shrimp paste? It’s awesome with sweet mango as is or with green mango mixed with tomatoes and onions. Most westerners won’t go near it. I was the only one that I knew of when I lived in Luzon that really liked the stuff. Very salty, but works perfectly with Philippine mangoes.

We are headed there from Manila for diving on Tuesday morning. Are you still going to be around?
I’m a Canadian living here and they do have some terrific food and it’s VERY cheap by North American standards.
Hi Dennis. Unfortunately I have returned to California already. I envy you actually living there. That is my dream also but probably have to wait 2 1/2 years or so. Have fun with your diving and enjoy the great food. Cebu is a great place.
ohh i jst back from P.I. last thursday but still i love to eat that food. Wednesday on our way to the airport stopping for lunch at Chowking, i order the steam kangkong w/ bagoong its delicious. And i miss to eat the ginataang gulay. I usually have it at Goldilocks SM. That seaweed (nukot) is good for thyroid. My cousin bring me some from their catch and anchovy. So i had kinilaw last Monday. YUmmmmy
hahay (sigh) Goyo.. i can’t help myself but to looked at your food pictures again .. i guess I am a sucker for punishment cause my stomach is growling now. he he he ..gutom na ko gyud. I can’t wait to go back home and eat some of if not all of the food pictured here .. kuyog ta balik !! he he he. i have 31 days left . i am saving all my money so I can eat everything I want . When you planning to go back ?
Try the kinilaw at Baybayon Resort, Kangmating, Sibulan (near Dumaguete airport). Also the chicken skin at Jo’s Chicken, Silliman Ave., and crispy chicken at Chicken ati-Atihan, Cor, Cervantes ST. and Silliman Ave.
And the fresh seafood at Lab-as. Lechon (roast pig) by the plate can be had at Food.net, Sta. Catalina St. cor. Noblefranca St., Dumaguete.
This blog started with my most recent trip to the Philippines, specifically the islands of Cebu and Negros. I will share with you the splendors and wonders of Republika ng Piliapinas (RP) as well as the love for and from her many peoples. I hope you will enjoy my adventures and misadventures as well as the fotos that I upload here. Perhaps you will also be motivated to visit and enjoy the 7,107 islands that are the RP.
By the way, that foto at the top of the page is of a beach in Santa Fe, Bantayan on the island of Cebu. Beautiful, is it not?
