Thirsty? Juices and Shakes

This Thirsty? cart is located inside Ayala Center Cebu, in the second level, me thinks.

Me and my friends used to plan of getting a Thirsty? franchise more than 10 years ago. The last time we heard, the franchise fee was about 150,000. The original owner of the business also was the Osmeñas, forgot which clan.

 

Thirsty Juices Shakes Cebu
I’m a fan of Thirsty. Whenever I’m in Manila or go back home to my hometown in Iligan, I make sure to sip a Thirsty shake.

The prices of the shakes are too steep for me, that’s why I seldom get one, I think I only tried it once. Maybe I’ll get one once in a while, because of its health benefits.

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.

P. Gullas Street

My regret is I did not eat, I just photo walked. Well, anyway, I did eat here years ago, probably once or twice.

It would not hurt if I would eat here again. Just don’t drink the water being served here, hehe..

I have no idea who P. Gullas was. But I knew, Eddie Gullas is owner of University of the Visayas and politician, not sure if they’re related. I could not find any information on the web.

I started shooting at the Osmeña Boulevard area, or where Metro Gaisano is located.

Going in now, the wall on the right is Gaisano Metro or Metro Gaisano, whichever sounds good hahaha.

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.

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.

Fro-Yo Craze in Paseo Arcenas

I found another frozen yogurt stall in Paseo Arcenas in Banawa. Lately, I noticed several frozen yogurt stalls sprouting everywhere in Cebu.

I’m still not sure if Fro-Yo is a Cebuano brand, but my instinct is saying it is originally Cebuano.

So far, Fro-Yo Craze is the cheapest. Their basic small yogurt starts at 70 pesos. Other froyo stalls starts at 75 pesos.

My business mind is telling me ‘there could be a generic branded yogurt manufactured by a bigger company selling it to small-sized businesses.’ Then the smaller companies will sell it as their own under their own brand.
