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

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.
