The Challenge: Explore Cebu in 2 days

Sounds tough but, having regular jobs, my friends and I had to make do with a quick weekend escapade to the Queen City of the South as part of our spur-of-the-moment bonding adventures.

So what can you do in Cebu when you only have a couple of days to spend?

A taste of Italy in Cebu! The best-tasting pizza and pasta I’ve tasted by far anywhere in the country. The chef who prepared our sumptuous dinner was from Naples. No wonder! When in Cebu and wanting some Italian food, I bet my two cents this place is gonna make your day.

4. La Vie Parisienne

Wines, spirits, good food, music, and engaging conversations at La Vie Parisienne, Cebu.

In between itineraries, one of us got to buy Rico’s Lechon and the rest of us bought a couple more kilos in Carcar Public Market where lechons were sold for as low as P280 per kilo. It was heaven!

We also got to snatch a few packs of dried fish (Danggit) in Taboan Public Market on our way back to our hotel.

Looking back, I still crave for the authentic Italian pizza and Carcar’s lechon. If it were for these two alone, I can’t wait to go back! And for sure I will.
