San Jose Bakeshop

San Jose Bakeshop should be in my top three personal bakeshop list. I like their tasty bread.

After a tiring photowalk around Guadalupe, I stopped by for a quick snack, and was blessed San Jose Bakeshop was just nearby.

Tara’s Cafe

Me and my church friends went to Tara’s Cafe to ate our dinner at 10:00pm.

The more than a hundred peso price of each meal was worth it. The taste is so gooood. I would love to go back to dine at Tara’s Cafe.

This set was shot before we went to Bubble Bee.

Chilling at Bubble Bee

It was my first to hangout in an unusual atmosphere. They serve tea drinks of various types. The usual hot tea, cold tea and the shake, they call it the “Slush”.

Me and my friends ordered the Slush.

I think the prices are okay. The taste of the shake we ordered was good.

Bubble Bee is located in Ground Floor, TSI Building, Ouano Avenue, North Reclamation Area, Mandaue City, Cebu

Video: Larsian

Larsian used to be a restaurant back in the 1970s, and is a combination of two names of twin sisters Pilar and Siana.

Presently, Larsian is place of barbecue stalls. Cebu is known for its delicious lechon and sinugba meat and fish. Sinugba (Sugba) is a Cebuano word for grilled or barbecue fish or meat.

In all honestly, I don’t like the present setup of Larsian because it basically contains the smoke of the grilled food, and after eating one would come out smelly.

Bo’s Coffee at Park Mall

This branch is filled with many people in the afternoons. Not good if you’re into quite atmosphere. Good if you also like watching other people inside, hehe.

Taking a break after shooting around Park Mall. Will post those set, in the next few days.

Bo’s Coffee is a fully Cebuano owned company which started in 1996 in Ayala Center Cebu. It has now about 50 outlets all over the Philippines.

I also had a similar post back in 2009, Bo’s Coffee at Ayala Center.

JCA Mr. Pizzaman

After walking along Salinas Drive in the morning. I went inside JCA to eat my morning snack.

Neo Neo in Mabolo

We took our friend, Grace to Neo Neo in Juan Luna Avenue in Mabolo. I did not eat, because I just ate at Jo’s Chicken, posted in the previous article.

Neo Neo is one of the most popular grill restaurants in Cebu City. Their main branch is in Salinas Drive in Lahug. It was almost midnight, so there were few customers. But in their main branch, it is practically always full, regardless of the time.

Payag ni Badong

Remembering the teenage years and the college days is priceless. Going back to the place where I used to hang out and recalling what I and my classmates used to do is something money could not buy.

I miss Payag ni Badong. Every USC-TC college students back in the 1990s would feel the same way. Their delicious food is missed. The service and the friendship provided by the eatery owner made me come back, and others too.

Some of those patron who were teenagers back then, revisit Payag ni Badong to reminisce the past and of course, to eat the well cooked food.

I believe even those who did not graduate in University of San Carlos had their own favorite places they used to hang out. If you want to me shoot your favorite hang out, just go to the Request to Shoot page.

Casa Verde in Ranudo Extension

Another restaurant in Cebu City worth visiting for over and over is Casa Verde. The taste is so good, and the price is just right. Prepare 250 pesos for one person.

I ate in the V. Ranudo Extension at around 11:00 in the morning. This is their main branch, and their other branches are in IT Park and Ayala Terraces.

To get to the Ranudo branch, just go to Velez College in F. Ramos street or Arlington Pond street. Then when you’re just ask around where Casa Verde is.

Here is the telephone number of Casa Verde: +63.32.253-8234

See the location map of Casa Verde below the page.
