Mactan as an island has grown into a respectable food hub in its own right. And I’m not talking about the super high-end restaurants you can find at resorts either. There’s tons of food places that people can enjoy without spending a small fortune; casual dining places that you’d usually find on the other side of the bridge.
Mactan is a funny mix of hole in the walls and five star restaurants. One minute you are in a fancy resort ordering the juiciest pecking duck, the next you are elbow to elbow on a bench ripping on the best lumpia ever. The secret restaurants around Mactan reflect just that.
