Cebu is also known for having the most delicious ngohiong in the Philippines. You can see it being sold on almost every corner of the metro, but for Valentine’s Day, I suggest you should try Atek’s Ngohion Train in Villa Aurora Subdivision. I like the place because it is quiet and you get to enjoy your ngohiong in peace! You will also enjoy looking at the giant arowana in their aquarium.

As far as I can remember, my parents, my aunts, and people older than them have told me that they have dined in A La King Cafe. This makes me want to shout to the restaurant signage and say, “Gosh! You’re so old!” Kidding aside, I love their machang and sizzling rice plate. No wonder they are still open after all these years.
