Are you looking for new a restaurant free from the busy streets in the City or just want to hangout and dine aside from the usual mall restaurants? then Third Degree Charred Bar and Grill Cebu is the perfect place for you.
The name Charred in Third Degree Charred Restaurant comes from the owners name Richard (Charred).
Located along Quano Avenue, Third Degree Charred Bar and Grill Restaurant is an outdoor dining place where you have the view outside the venue. They can accommodate up to 60 persons and accept exclusive usage of the place for events, parties etc.
The place is cozy, since it is a semi outdoor type, it is perfect for chilling out with your drinking buddies as well as eating their delicious food. They have also plans in putting a small band in the corner to add a lively ambiance in the place.
They have a lot choices in the menu, you can choose according to your preference.
For their food, they mainly serve Filipino with Chinese Fusion cuisine. Though most of the their dishes are grilled which you can see right in the venue itself.
The Crispy Pata is also well cooked from all sides, meat is tender, it is not that oily even though it is deep fried and just taste as good as other crispy patas.
If you are not into pork or chicken, then you can order their tunga panga which is fresh and tasty.
Next ,we tried their pork barbecue, you can tell that it is fresh and juicy from the fact that you can see the actual grilling itself. They are really delicious and recommended if you happen to visit in Third Degree Charred Cebu.
They also serve alcoholic beverages which is good if you want to hangout with your friends and just have a good time.
Aside from grilled and fried dishes they also have the Pork Pochero where you can just enjoy and sip the very tasty soup broiled with the pork bones and meat. Perfect for family and groups of friends who likes Filipino food.
Then their Kinamatisan Kawali which is my favorite of them all. The taste is similar to bicol express with more pork and tomatoes in it which is what I like.
One their appetizers served is the Crispy Kangkong which is quite good to be honest. It’s not too oily and it’s just like eating a chicharon 🙂
Overall, Cebu Third Degree Charred Grill and Bar is a great new place to hangout if you prefer to dine outside malls or the usual bar and grill restaurants. Aside from it is outside the busy traffic streets ,it is also a more private and quiet alternative place to bring your family an friends when you dine here in Cebu.
Food stops are getting popular here in Cebu where you can just food establishments are near the road and accessible, it is usually located along the street or in busy areas where people can just come by and have a quick meal instead of going to the malls. One of these is the Makan Ahooy Food Kiosk Cebu.
Located in the busy streets of Salinas Drive Lahug Cebu, across USPF University of Southern Philippines Foundation, where you can easily spot the place, it is like a native restaurant in a hut where you can see different food establishments or tenants in it.
The Place is spacious and the ambiance is great, though they need to get rid of flies though. There are 5 tenants lining up and you can choose dishes and Korean, Filipino, Middle East and Chineses food
One of the tenants is the popular Lasagne Que, they started as an online food stop where they make their known Lasagnas and deliver it per order basis, now they have their first store and still serving the delicious lasagna, so you don’t have to order online and just drop by Makan Ahooy Kiosk and get it your order right away.
If you feel like eating middle east or persian food, then Jacob Shawarma is for you, they served the all time favorite Shawarma and other middle eastern dishes.
If you’re looking for a quick Korean meal and craving for one as well , then Miga Kiling Kiling Restaurant is your choice, serving not only delicious Korean food prepared by experienced cooks making Korean dishes for many years, it is also very affordable compared to other Korean restaurants.
Then there is Mackies Chinoy Street food if you are looking for Chinese food mixed with Filipino cuisine, they served the undisputed Cebuano favorite streetfood dish, the “Ginabot” and “Nghoiong”, their ginabot is huge and is tasty. They also served dimsum food like siomai which is equally good.
Then there is La Moi Food Haus where they serve Filipino dishes and home made meals that will surely feel that you are dining at home, they also have grilled dishes and snacks as well.
Here are some of the dishes you will in Makan Ahooy Food Kiosk (Warning, you might get hungry after viewing 😀 )
Lasagne are wide, flat-shaped pasta, and possibly one of the oldest types of pasta.The word “lasagne”, and, in many non-Italian languages, the singular “lasagna”, can also refer to a dish made with several layers of lasagne sheets alternated with sauces and various other ingredients. -Wiki
Gimbap or kimbap is a Korean dish made from steamed white rice (bap) and various other ingredients, rolled in gim (sheets of dried laver seaweed) and served in bite-size slices. Gimbap is often eaten during picnics or outdoor events, or as a light lunch, served with danmuji or kimchi. -Wiki

One of the know and oldest Lechon restaurants here in Cebu is Tatangs Extra Crispy and Boneless lechon. Their main branch is located in Wilson Street Lahug Cebu City. The place has a small dining area probably becausre their focus is more on the take out orders.
They offer mainly lechon. But this time they have their own version of lechon wraps where lechon slices are placed in taco wraps similar to shawarma style wrap. Though you need the lechon meat to be boneless meaning you have to choose the lechon belly as the wrap filling, you can put other veggies and herbs in the wraps according to your preference.
My favorite is their spicy lechon belly where you almost don’t need any sauce to eat the tasty lechon. The meat is evenly cooked and the lechon skin is crispy and spicy as well.
A popular pinoy dish is the sisig and they have the lechon version of it, though it can be too oily and fatty for some, it is one of the best sisig I’ve tried. Just watch you intake for your cholesterol count 🙂
If you love chicharon they you will also love this cripsy lechon version of it where instead of the fat and skin, the meat is minced and cooked to get that crispy chips like texture where you can just enjoy eating it without rice.
When you speak of lechon, there will be always be the ‘Dinuguan’ dish which is a popular Filipino dish, some called it the blood porridge.
One of my favorite is their Pork Kare Kare where big chunks of pork meat are cooked to perfection which tastes like your traditional Kare-kare.
Overall, their lechon is good, especially the spicy lechon belly. The lechon wrapp is a unique addition & the lechon kare-kare is a must try. Just watch your cholesterol and bp level before and after eating 🙂

Island Grill Ayala Center Cebu
One of the famous foodcourt restaurants here in Cebu ,Island Grill Ayala Center Cebu is now expanding its food establishment in a more fastfood chain like setup in their new location branch in Ayala Center Cebu, formerly a foodcourt store which was located near the cinemas, their new place is now more presentatble and cozy, not that really big but just right enough to accomodate 20-25 persons.
If love authentic Filipino food and want fast service similar to a restaurant, then Island Grill is a perfect place for you. Unlike other traditional Filipino Restaurant where you have to sit and wait for minutes until you food is ready and served whether dine in or take out. Island Grill is good for busy professionals who just want a quick Filipino dine in experience.
When you enter their new location, you can immediately see their delicious food display up in front, you can also see the grill station where they actually cook your preferred dish so that they will be still fresh when they will be served in your tables.
The ambiance is quite bright which is lively which will help increase your appetite (psychologically). You can also the colorful wallpaper which first I thought was a painting.
Service is quite fast as expected. You can choose from a large variety of Filipino dishes and they will be served immediately after a few minutes (for grilled dish). There menu consist of mainy Filipino dishes and grilled stuffs. You can also see other familiar dishes as well like leche plan, grilled chicken, pork , squid, etc.
They also have grilled fish as well like the tanguige. Also chorizo and the chicharon bulaklak. I was also surprised to see other Filipino food like the Batchoy which is starts 65 pesos only served in a large bowl which can be good for 2, the noodles strands of their batchoy is also made and baked by the store itself exclusive for Island Grill. (much cheaper than those ramen dish). Other rare filipino dish served is the binignit which is only seasonal in some food establishments but served in Island Grill anytime of the day.
They also have their own family recipe which they past on from different generation and made in the Island Grill’s 20 years in the food business. Their “Bico in a latik” is one of the best I have ever tasted, the bico and the latik(Sugar filling) are separated and treated like a sauce which blends just exactly right in your mouth. It is a must try.
Their grilled dishes are quite decent for a fastfood type, which really requires precision in terms of cooking and the right mix of ingredients and spices. Though I can sense that it is a little salty (for my taste), it is still a decent dining experience especially when you are in a mall 😀
Overall it was a good dining experience, food is good, service is fast and the ambiance is just right for a quick filipino food dining experience, we also got the chance to meet the owners which establishes a good customer and bloggers/media relationship. Island Grilled is a must if you love Filipino with a fastfood service experience.

With so many park cars outside this restaurant along the road going to Ayala can mean two things, 1st the restaurant is still new and 2nd, they serve great food. I am more interested in the 2nd one, so this time, I got the chance to visit the Kuya J Restaurant Cebu
I went here with a quick lunch with my officemates, I have been passing by to “Kandingan sa SRP” many times when going to my brother’s place. Anyways, I got the chance to taste their food especially the “Kanding” or Goat meat.
