Cebu Food Tour: Behind the Scenes of Cebu’s Heritage Food Scene

They say the best lechon in the Philippines can be found in Cebu. But Cebu is not just about Lechon, it has other traditional food spots worth checking out.

We took a food tour through the municipalities of Cebu to see what else awaits foodies visiting Cebu. Not only were we able to get a taste, but we also took a look behind the scenes on how all the products are made.

Here are the stories of other food spots in Cebu:Read more

RGIES DELICACIES: Arguably Iloilo’s Favorite Butterscotch Pasalubong!?

Argies Iloilo
RGies butterscotch- why this soft moist and chewy treat  a favorite pasalubong item from Iloilo?

Growing up in Bacolod, I’m very fond of eating butterscotch from the neighboring city Iloilo. There are two brands I swear by, and that’s Biscocho Haus and RGie’s.

Usually, you’d only get cashew’s in your butterscotch, but RGies was the first to introduce different variants from classic favorites cashew to mango, dates, choco oats, coffee, almonds, durian, lemon, banana and coffee flavor.

Argies Iloilo

R and G stand for Ramon and Grace Javelosa the owner couple of RGies. It was initially RG’s, but they decided to “spell it out” when they officially had the business registered.

RGies started in a small home kitchen back in 1986, where the dad would make homemade butterscotch and give it to his co-workers in Roxas city as “pasalubong” items from Iloilo. The co-workers loved it so much that they eventually, persuaded the couple to start selling their products because they were too embarrassed to ask for more of their homemade sweets.

GRAND XING IMPERIAL HOTEL: Affordable Premium Hotel in Iloilo City!

Grand Xing Imperial Hotel
Iloilo City is known for its rich cultural history, art, historic churches, old mansions, picture-perfect countryside, mouthwatering seafood, and the famed Dinagyang Festival. All of these makes it a remarkable destination in Western Visayas.

With the gradual rise in business and economy in the Manduriao district, the owners of Grand Xing Imperial Hotel had a vision of bringing back the old glory of Iloilo to life.

Grand Xing Imperial Hotel, located in Iloilo’s downtown area is a modern 184-room hotel that promises its guests a premium experience at reasonable rates. We like the modern rooms, all-floor KTV bar, majestic ballrooms, and its star attraction–an infinity pool that overlooks Iloilo river.

Here’s a photo essay of our stay…

Camp Ngey Ngey

Are you an adventurous spirit searching for the warm breeze of the sea?

Go completely off-the-grid at this secluded beach hideaway! If you’ve heard of Tao Expedition, Camp Ngey Ngey offers the same Tao experience but set on the remote island of Manguengey in Busuanga, Northern Palawan.

This three-day and two-night Neverland island escape is not for everyone. Tao is a sustainable travel gem where you can go back to nature by enjoying the simple things in life. Here you sleep in Tao’s signature open-air bamboo hut, enjoy healthy meals cooked using the local vegetation and the fresh catch of the day, discover the magical snorkeling and shipwreck diving sites of Coron, and even find wildlife within the island’s shores, from turtles and dugongs, to glowing plankton and even baby sharks! When the sun sets, the camp guides make sure to entertain and keep the party going for everyone. The best part? You get to experience all of this with new friends from all over the world!

Camp Ngey Ngey

Tao Philippines Expedition is a social enterprise founded by Eddie Agamos Brock and Jack Foottit that immerses participants in the authentic Filipino island life while, at the same time, helping the remote island communities of Northern Palawan.

Here’s what I think about the tours, the accommodations, the activities, and the food in the camp…

TAO PHILIPPINES
Tao Expeditions has been described as ‘One of the most pioneering cultural eco-tourism projects in the Philippines’. It is a journey to the most remote region in Palawan to discover a tropical archipelago of hundreds of paradise islands, inaccessible to independent travelers through its remoteness and lack of tourist infrastructure.
