SM Seaside City, Cebu

Aloha Everyone,

We are puzzled that our hotel’s breakfast buffets selection is again limited. Anyway, 40 minutes of walking on a treadmill is a great way to start a day. Did two loads of laundry before we went for our outing to SM Seaside City.

Located close to the Basak Pardo Casino, hotels & shopping malls, the SM Seaside City caters to a middle to upper middle-class market. No real outstanding restaurants for our lunch place. J.J. selected Zubu Chon, a Filipino restaurant specializing in Lechon and other specialties of the region.

Mongo beans soup was excellent.  Gambas, small shrimps prepared in oil was good. Crab Rellano and fried lumpia ubod smelled too fishy for me. My favorite, bibingka made of cassava, was wonderfully tasty although not a healthy choice. 

If I am to explain my impression of Zubu Chon, the restaurant’s toilet was very clean, and it had direct ocean view from its window!

For dinner, we walked across to a place J.J. and I’ve been curious about. It is cafe and restaurant called Teology.  Somehow neither one of us translated the Filipino word to Theology. Food was one time only place. At least our curiosity was satisfied.

Aloha -- Cathi
