Ever since we arrived Cebu, my friend's mom and relatives have always bringing us to Cebu's finest places to eat and leisure. But this time, I have experienced that Cebu's street food. Now I have realized that this is way much better compared to Manila in terms of price and the quality.
Shamrock Bakery and Restaurant is not just a place where you get "pasalubong" but this place has also an inn upstairs and a small dining area right beside the bakery shop.
My mom's friend took the liberty of ordering the food for us. While waiting, I went to their bakeshop and bought their famous dried mangoes and otap for my "pasalubong" before I forget about it.
When the food arrived, I was so excited to see Chicken barbecue lying in front of me. The size was huge. I think it's like those we get from Mang Inasal or Chicboy. But the price, wow, one order costs 40 bucks only.
What puzzled me that night is the thingy placed beside the Chicken barbecue. It was diamond in shape and it was wrapped in dried coconut leaves. I thought it was a dessert like suman which is another delicacy in Cebu that I didn't know. But when I saw my friend took one and tear it up, it was steamed rice inside. This is what they call "puso"
. Steamed rice wrapped in coconut leaves. One order of this "puso" is only 5 pesos. It was intact that when I opened it entirely, there was actually a lot of rice in it.
Imagine for less than 50 pesos I was very full. The chicken was juicy and full of flavor. It can be compared to those fast food places that serve inasal chicken.
Overall, I'm glad to have experienced this. These things that I would never see in Manila when I get home. I wish I could have stayed longer so I could enjoy more of what Cebu City can offer.
