Must try food in Cebu

Food is no longer a separate entity. It has become a part of tourism. There are people who visit places just for the sake of trying local food. One of the biggest mistakes that people do when they travel to other places is not trying the local food or local cuisine. People in every place of the world have their own style of cooking. It is important to explore those cuisines and know how different they are from your own style.

Since there is not much of an idea about food in Cebu many might think what to eat in cebu city? You can find the answer to that question in this article.

Cebu Lechon

The city of Cebu is very famous for the lechon that it offers. It is not like the roasted pig that you find in many parts of the country. It is an amazing treat, which will also be recommended by the locals. There are a lot of places where you could find lechon. But if you are a person who will enjoy some spicy food you can try out at a restaurant named Highway 77 that is very famous for serving spicy lechon. It is located in Talamban City.

Tuslob Buwa

It would be better if people just go and taste his amazing dish rather than researching how it is made. It is because there are good possibilities that people might stay away from the dish after hearing the recipe. Most of the people are ok with the rice part, but it is the gravy that plays a major role. The gravy is made out of pig’s brain or liver. Steamed rice is dipped in the gravy and is consumed.


There are many different verities of Pochero. But there is something unique that is served in the city of Cebu. It is a very delicious dish and do not be surprised if you are ordering one more for yourself. We can vouch for the dish, and we are sure that it will meet your expectations. It is more like a clear soup than a tagalong pochero.

Siomai sa Tisa

Some might feel strange how did Siomai get into Cebu food? It is not like commercial siomai. It is very much different from what is being served in Chinese restaurants. Adding the Filipino twist to it is what sets it apart from the regular siomai. We are absolutely sure that you will not be satisfied with any other siomai after eating this.


Ngohiong is more like a normal spring roll but has a Cebu touch to it. It is very different from the normal spring rolls because of the five spices used to it. Even those you will find this dish all over the city the best place to devour the dish is at Carlos Special Ngohiong. They have two branches. One in Mabolo Church and the other one in Guadalupe. This will definitively be a great treat for everyone, especially for the vegetarians.
