Thai food has bcome a Filipino favorite. Here in Cebu, there are several Thai restaurants that are slowly making a mark in the food biz. One of which is this no non-sense Thai place named Soi Thai Restaurant. Soi Thai is a Filipino-owned restaurant from the creative minds that brought us the staple Kapampangan food chain, Cabalen. Soi means “street” or “side-street” in Thailand, so this place basically brings upscale Thai street food with lip-smacking dishes at a decent price. Madam Jocelyn Puyat, the owner, promised to bring Thailand’s culinary treasures to Cebu food scene with the most authentic taste possible through Soi Thai Restaurant.
Let’s go through some of Soi’s specials and my personal favorites from their menu.Read More »
As a self-confessed lover of sweets, I have always regarded desserts as the star of every meal. Even on buffets, I tend to devour the sweets first before the main course. Haha! Gelatissimo gives an enchanting taste of Italy from a colorful array of ice cream flavors spread through the glass display counter in all its wonderful glory, I feel like I’m in gelato heaven. They continue to make unique flavors every now and then to complement some mainstays which add variety to their menu. Being a distinguished gelato lover, a scoop full of this smooth velvety goodie isn’t enough. It is without a doubt that Gelatissimo is still the best gelato house on this side of the city.Read More »
There are a lot of must-see places in Camiguin as it is rich in both hot and cold springs, caves, craters, waterfalls and white sand beaches waiting to be explored. Since Camiguin is a volcanic island with four stratovolcanoes, it is expected that there are a couple of springs spread all over the island. Hot springs are located on the east side of Camiguin and in the west end of the island is where cold springs are. Forget your jeans, that baggy jacket, cotton shirts, and sneakers. When you’re in Camiguin, you can live with just your swimmers and flops. Whether you want to meet locals and learn their culture, meditate, do food trips, or simply laze around and relax by a picturesque beach, Camiguin Island has got you covered.
Howdy folks! We, Pinoys, are adventurous by nature. It’s always summer all year ’round for us. Our Camiguin Island escape was a hell of an adventure. It was one of the most hassle-free trips I’ve had because our itinerary was properly set prior to the trip and everything was placed in proper order as far as our tour and accommodation. If you’re coming from Cebu and thinking of going to Camiguin , this post could well be your ticket to help you decide which route is best for you and where to stay.
Cebu – Cagayan De Oro – Balingoan Port
We decided to be more adventurous, so we took the Cebu – CDO-Camiguin route going to our destination. We had the early morning flight to CDO. The trip was not bad, although it was not good either. I though Cebu Pac’s ATR TurboProp plane was a bit warm throughout the flight. But more importantly, we arrived safe and sound at Laguindingan International Airport so I really can’t complain.
