Chowdown Cebu: Zubuchon

To start our Mactan food trip, we went to one of the must-try foodie spots in Cebu: ZUBUCHON!!! :)

Zubuchon is not just one of the many Lechon Cebu places as Mr. Anthony Bourdain (of "No Reservations") called their lechon "The Best Pig Ever"!

I've brought CnT Lechon to Manila during my previous Cebu trip, I haven't eaten Cebu Lechon for dine in and this was my chance. What's nice about Zubuchon is that their lechon is available anytime, unlike other lechon restos that run out especially during peak hours.

Inside Zubuchon

The branch we went for lunch was at Islands Stay Hotel, located near the Mactan Marina Mall. It is a jeepney ride away from Lapu-Lapu Shrine and from the airport.

To begin our meal, we had Sisig & Tomato Pasta (Php 180).

Sisig & Tomato Pasta

I'm a huge sisig fanatic, and I love it on spaghetti. The fresh tomatoes gives a nice contrast to the saltiness of the sisig. It was also creamy, which I liked.

My friend and I also shared a Zubuchon Fast Meal (Php 140).

Zubuchon Fast Meal

Cebu Lechon is best dipped in soy sauce. Darn, it was soooo delicious! Mr. Bourdain, I totally get you. I really do. :)

We also tried Zubuchon's original creation, the Kamias Shake (Php 90). My friend and I were really hesitant about trying this, but the friendly staff convinced us that we should. And so we did, but we split an order into two. 

Kamias Shake

We didn't regret trying it. It was sour, alright, but it was a great palate cleanser after the porky treat.

What I really loved about them is that they sell Frozen Zubuchon (Php 260 for 1/2 kilo, Php 490 for 1 kilo), complete with re-heating instructions. Just add Php 20 for the box. No need to worry about spoiling your pasalubong.

I love you, Zubuchon! I'm going back, I promise!
