I am not really a sweet tooth by I love to try unique food items. One of the most unique culinary creations that I discovered recently would be Skillet Japanese Cafe and Bistro's Dew Droplet Cake. This "cake" is popularly known as Raindrop Cake or in Japan, it is called Mizu Shingen Mochi. The dessert had a semi-cultlike following in New York. Surprisingly, it is now in Cebu. Thanks to #ZomatoPh, I was able to try it recently.
The Social recently opened their newest restaurant concept in Cebu at the SM Seaside City. The new place is called Seaside Saloon Bar and Grill by The Social. Just like their concept in Ayala Center Cebu, the new restaurant is another hybrid coz it is diner/sports bar/ music bar. It's all about fun at Seaside Saloon by The Social. The Kalaminions were there to check to preview what they are offering to Cebu.
October was a busy month for my tongue and tummy as I tried a lot of yummy dishes. I visited tons of new places and also reconnected with some old favorites. It was indeed a great gastronomic month as Kalami Cebu's version of Octoberfest involved restaurants from up north, the capital and of course, beloved Cebu. Check out my 50 memorable foods of October:
I miss +Thaddeau II Engaling. He was one of the best team building facilitators while he was still in Cebu. He migrated to California earlier this year. I recently went to Brown Cup at Rose Dale Talamban to meet up with his buddies from the Cebu Team Building Facilitators Network and learn about what they are up to. Well, they are bringing the "Mental Assasin" to Cebu for a Body Language Advantage workshop and I am going to attend it.
Phenomenal! That is how I describe Sugbo Mercado. This food market concept has been a game changer in the food industry here in Cebu. I recently had a chitchat with Sugbo Mercado's Michael Karlo Lim and JP Chiongbian at Tin Gow Restaurant at the Waterfront Cebu and they bared the mouthwatering plans of Sugbo Mercado for the coming months. I got pretty pumped after hearing about their intention to expand to other regions.
Last Thursday, I was with the cool guys and girls of Philippines Air Asia and they just informed us that starting November 25, they will be flying 4 times weekly from Cebu to Singapore. Wow! Just wow because I have been salivating over the prospects of having a Singapore food trip for a long time. You can even start your Lion City food trip for as low as 888 pesos per way as Air Asia will take you there in their Red and White Airbus 320s.
If you are a foodie, one of the major factors to having an awesome food trip would definitely be mobility. If you have a car, you can drive to distant places like Carcar City to have a lechon and chicharon food trip. I just talked to my friends from BPI Family at Casa Verde and they have an awesome promo this weekend that will surely tempt any Cebuano foodie to buy a brand new car.
Last month, I went to Vigan with my mom and my Godparents. It was my first time there and I was surprised that they were celebrating a major festival. I was just intending to have an Ilocano food trip and the Raniag Vigan Twilight Festival just made it easier. Well, this week's Kalamions #MeetEatRepeat episode features the new friends that I met in Vigan and our Raniag food trip.
