Cebu continues to experience a dramatic increase in everything; population, buildings, businesses and even traffic. One of my favorite improvements is the incredible expansion in dining options. Without a doubt, Cebu has finally caught up to Manila’s food scene.
Coffee has slowly become an important part of the city dwelling Cebuano. You can tell because of all the cafes sprouting out. We aren’t talking about the cutesy gimmicky ones either. We mean the cafes that serve legitimately good coffee.
We’re incredibly excited for the growing food scene in Cebu. More new restaurants continue to pop up, but there’s something to be said about the true Cebu Classics, the staples that we keep coming back to.
Ask any Cebuano about their favorite lechon and you’ll get a mix of answers.
For those who have never heard of lechon – it is basically a suckling pig roasted over charcoal. It is delicious, but no one can agree on who makes the best.
We can only agree that the best lechon comes from Cebu, Philippines.
