One of the most popular liempo meat grill here in Cebu is the Balamban Liempo. They are well known for their delicious and tasty grilled liempo combined with its mixture of spices and herbs which makes it unique compare to other grilled stores. No wonder they are getting more and more popular around towns and those who haven’t tried it, you just missed half your cuisine life :D.
Started as a small grill house in Mabolo, they expanded up to 60 branches and still growing nationwide. You can see them almost in every streets here in Cebu, also included branches in Luzon and Mindanao as well.
Anyways, I got the chance to taste finally the renowned Balamban Liempo which is my first time in their first and main branch were it all started and I was not disappointed indeed.
Their renowned liempo which was first known in the province of Balamban South of Cebu City. The taste is really different to any Liempo grill which has its unique delicious taste, it also contains spices and herbs which makes it more tasty than ever.
This humba is not included in their recipe but it is especially made for us by the owner’s mother, which is one of the inspirations of the store. Nothing beats a mothers cooking indeed. The taste is just right with the right amount of spices and the texture of the meat is just right in the mouth.
Balamban Liempo’s own version of lechon manok, the Balambanok, of course made with the same recipe as the Balamban Liempo, which is also great if you are not in the mood for pork but want the same taste and feel for a Balamban Liempo.
Their own version of Lemon chicken that makes the right blend of chiken and sweetness that is just right in your taste buds.
Overall, the experience is great. It will definitely fill you appetite and your hunger. The place is good for those who want a heavy dinner or to celebrate an occasion with a group. Also good for guys who want to spend a drink and just chow on liempo meat. Their take out order is also great for office meals especially in groups or take home for a great feast. Though their are many grilled Liempo outlets out there. I will put this 1st in my list.
