Cebu’s food industry has grown so much in the past years. A lot of Filipino-themed restaurants are opening in every corner, but there’s always one or two that stands out above the rest, right? Usually, these restaurants are the ones we frequent for get-togethers or special gatherings. Nothing beats eating good food together with the people we love. Good food is always associated with great moments with family and friends. What better way to do this than having our very own Filipino favorites served on our table together with the people we care about.
I can only count a few Pinoy restaurants in Cebu City that I consider my ‘go-to’ foodie place for Filipino dishes. One of which is this Cebuano-owned resto named KKD STK + BBQ located at the corner of MJ Cuenco Ave, near Plaza Independencia. I had the opportunity to meet and have a sit down with one of the owners, Clem, who was very accommodating to us. He’s a home-grown Cebuano businessman who understands what every Pinoys want in their food. KKD (for short) became a hit to the Cebu folks because the place has friendly servers, VERY GOOD food, and unintimidating facade. I became an instant fan the first time I came here. They have very delicious food choices, with a very Filipino taste. But the best thing about KKD is the affordability of their menu. The price of their dishes is much lower compared to others. Who would expect such tasty dishes coupled with pretty plating would be this reasonable? Where can you find an entre within the city that only costs P80.00! You definitely double your money’s worth.
The ambiance is a reflection of what a true blue Cebuano lives by – unpretentious and modest. The place is adorned with native designs that will make you feel welcome and at home. A live band is also performing every day at the second level. The owners are also working on improving the place and will soon have an air-conditioned function room to cater special occasions/events.
Here are some notable dishes that you can enjoy at KKD STK +BBQ.
The flavor of their food is distinct, bold and familiar. You’ll never get tired of ordering something new in every visit because you’ll definitely get a fresh experience each time. I believe that word-of-mouth is alway the best campaign to advertise a restaurant. No wonder they are always full. KKD doesn’t need to show off because the greatness of the place transcends to the customers which eventually become their number 1 advertisers. A return is never impossible.
I highly recommend KKD STK + BBQ to everyone. Locals and tourists will get exactly what they came for – value for money without sacrificing the taste. KKD is an up and rising dining place in the city and surely one to watch out for.
