Zubuchon has removed the use of MSG in their lechon. Instead, their chefs stuff the pig with local spices and herbs to give it that distinct Pinoy taste. Everything still remains a secret when it comes to the ingredients, and Anthony Bourdain will just have to be contented with the magical play of flavors in his mouth when he declared Zubuchon as “the best pig ever!”
World Class. That’s what Cebu is. And the term is not just about the hotels, resorts, restaurants, and shops, but it also goes all the way to what’s inside your house. Did you know that Cebu is also known as the country’s furniture capital? If you didn’t, then you’ve been hiding in a shell because [...]
Malls have sprung almost everywhere, and with them come the many restaurant franchises from Manila. But where do you go to get the real Cebuano flavor, the feel of the city, the essence of what eating in Cebu is like? And Cebuana friends have just given me this long list of “who-what-where” food places, which we couldn’t even finish trying out.
What’s beyond Cebu City? A whole lot! But first, a brief lesson here, and hopefully one that won’t be confusing: The capital of Cebu Province is Cebu City, which is located in Cebu Island. The province is made up of Cebu Island and 167 surrounding islands!!! Now, THAT’S what’s beyond Cebu City.

The title says it all. Lots of people feel like they’re on top of the world in so many ways, like after overcoming a difficult trial or when they’re in love, just to name a few. But in Cebu, you’ll really be taken to the top of the world– no trials needed and no falling [...]
I totally agree. Cebu DOES rock! And they did it for nine days at the Sinulog 2011 celebration last January. Do you think any other celebration to honor the Sto. Niño would be able to match Cebu’s? I don’t think so. This event is slowly making its way as one of the reasons to visit [...]
Yes, Cebu will be hot this month, and watch it get hotter before you can blink your eyes and say, “Summer na!” Again, there’s really no excuse to be dull and boring this summer. The sun’s out, weather’s great; let’s go discover some islands.
