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.
With restaurants sprouting all over town, date night has never been easier or more varied in Cebu. The only thing you’d have to worry about is where to go.
It was early last year when my additction to Matcha started. It wasn’t as popular back then and not many cafes offered the drink. After reading an article on the benefits of Matcha, I gave it a try and I was hooked. I still loved coffee, but there are days that are perfect for Matcha.
Restaurants are the temples of modern society. Nowhere else do we converge in good spirit for lively discussions, intimate romances, and delicious food and drink. What may have been the watering hole in the caveman era is now a place of shiny plates, fancy interiors, a small army of servers, and air conditioning.

Last month when the rest of the city was busy with Ironman, Zerothreetwo was invited to try the newest churros craze with one of the country’s prettiest faces, Solenn Heusaff, but first let’s talk about La Lola Churreria.

You already know our evident love for cafes and coffee. One of my favorite spots is Coffee Factory. Since I work near where it is situated, I am able to go there early and enjoy the place when it is less crowded. Lately, there’s barely an empty table in sight especially during the evenings. This isn’t surprising as there are a number of reasons why it’s a new favorite for many.
