Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. You can make that day very special without going overboard. You can already enjoy a romantic dinner in any of these Cebu restaurants for only Php 200! I am not kidding!
If you want the perfect combination of romantic ambiance and affordable food, Fuzion Gourmet is the best place to bring your date. They specialize in French fusion cuisine. If your budget is only Php 200, go for two orders of Crispy Chicken which is only Php 95 per plate.
Lets say you only have Php 100 and you want to give your date a decent meal that will make both of you busog, Mingnan Chinese Cuisine can do just that. For only Php 50, you can have one serving of rice and two kinds of viand. A lot of professionals eat their meals in the restaurant or have them for take-out. Their restaurant is also air-conditioned so swak na swak sa budget mo!
If by chance you will be craving for affordable Japanese food on Valentines Day, go to Joeds. For only Php 75, you can have one order of California Maki sushi and a bowl of ramen for only Php 125. Joeds is a cool Japanese carenderia.
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.
If you are looking for authentic Indian cuisine with rates that will make your pocket smile, go to Mr. India. For just Php 99, you can already enjoy their Thalis or set meal which includes 1 dal, 1 veggie or non-veggie viand of the day, 1 naan paratha, 1 serving of rice, 1 papadam, and 1 dessert.
Vegetarians, rejoice! There is a place in Cebu where you can satisfy your craving for vegetarian meals. Just like Joed’s Shiv Dal Roti Corner is a cool carenderia.
If you are a big fan of restaurants that does not use MSG on their food but only the finest spices hand-carried from abroad, make Oriental Spice Gourmet the first on your list. Their main dishes are only Php 150! Wow!
If you are a fan of combo meals that are less than Php 100, I think you will love Merilla’s Resto. If you want to go all out and try their buffet, it’s only Php 180.
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.
Dubbed as the best restaurant in Cebu by Ang Pinaka (a local TV show that makes a Top 10 list of anything under the sun), STK Ta Bay! showcases the best of Cebuano cuisine and hospitality by offering its customers sumptuous and affordable food paired with a cozy and home-like ambiance. For Php 200, you and your date can actually enjoy 2 servings of rice and your choice of viand. Not bad at all!
