Towering burger at Buddies Burger!

There are always the first time, and I’m always curious to try new things, good things specifically, and eating a towering high burger at Buddies is checked on my list.

My former officemate posted photo of him posing before a towering high burger. After seeing it, gusto gyud nako mo try ani na klase na burger – available at Buddies – Burger, Tacos, Hotdogs, Burritos. Basically, they serve American and Mexican fast foods.

Fat Cow Burgers

I’m really a burger addict, so everytime I see a new burger restaurant, I make sure I get to taste their burger.

I was with my four other friends , but they don’t like burgers, they’re not burger fans obviously. They just watched me ate alone hahaha. They were craving for a Thai food, I will blog on this later.

Fatcow Burgers and Malts is an American-inspired burger outlet, so expect an expensive priced burger. Good thing, the taste justifies the price.

Eating my snacks at Mini Stop

Eating snacks at Mini Stop is one of my favorite thing to do, provided I have enough money because most of their prices are slightly higher than most shops.

I was one of the many Cebuanos excited for Mini Stop to open a shop here in Cebu, and they finally opened not just one, but two shops last October 2012 in Robinson’s Fuente and at Escario Street. These were the first branches outside Luzon.

Ministop is originally a Japanese brand, but locally the company is run by Robinsons Retail Group.

Cebu Lumpia House at City Soho Mall

My first to eat at Lumpia House’s outlet in City Soho Mall, specifically located in the second floor.

The best thing why I enjoyed it because I was with my friends, and with two new beautiful female friends. 😀

Another best reason why. I did not spend a centavo, my friend Meynard who loves to treat his friends paid it all.

We ordered ngohiong, a famous street food delicacy in Cebu. Ngohiong is P8.00 each.

I’m not really a fan of fresh lumpia, but I still ate this. This is P25.00 each.

Eating Lunch at Handuraw Pizza

Although, Handuraw is known for its delicious pizza, I didn’t eat one. I ordered a Chicken Cacciatore because I was curious by the name. I like to taste foods especially if it has a not-so-familiar name.

I chose Green Mango Shake to pair with my tasty chicken meal. The reddish sauce is tomato, one of the reasons why I also ordered it. Tomatoes are good for the skin, making me look younger. 😀

You maybe wondering about what the word Handuraw means. So I quote on how the owners define it:

Handuraw is pronounced as han-doo-rau and was coined by the family’s matriarch Becky Pestaño Smith as a result of looking for an old Cebuano word that would embody vision, and creativity. It is the Cebuano word for “the power to imagine.”

This Haduraw outlet is located in the ground floor of Mango Square Mall in General Maxilom (formerly Mango Avenue).

The beverage price list of Handuraw Pizza. The green mango shake is P78.00

Lami sa Bread and Butter

My first experience with Bread and Butter was in the 1990s in Banilad when they used to have a branch just outside Sto. Niño Village.

Then it got renewed when they have a branch in Mandaue City. Every time I go to work in Lapu-Lapu in the morning, I drop by to buy my favorite hotdog bread.
