What / Where I Ate in Cebu City, Philippines: LANTAW NATIVE RESTAURANT

The concept of alfresco dining by the shore in the city is relatively experimental and uncommon.  However, it did click to the public and LANTAW NATIVE RESTAURANT have even branched out to sea waters in the neighboring island of Cebu, Mactan island and have further reached the mountains of Busay, Cebu City.

This particular branch of LANTAW NATIVE RESTAURANT is situated by the bay at the South Road Properties in Cebu City.  The concept, architecture and the details of the interior design of the restaurant screams natively Filipino!

It is expected that all dishes are of Filipino cuisine, so let's jump now to the dishes that we ordered for this warm yet hearty alfresco luncheon we had in this restaurant.

We went for the soft side of the menu, meaning we ordered only for an appetizer and two kinds of vegetable dishes.  My parents love vegetables so much that one kind of veggie recipe is always not enough.  
Our appetizer was the BAKED SCALLOPS.  Taste-wise, the scallops were somehow tasty…

Something Japanese in Cebu City, Philippines - RAMEN SORA

When my mom is dining with us outside our home, seldom do we have the chance to convince her to a Japanese restaurant.  But since she have been interested with Ramen some few months ago, when I suggested for RAMEN SORA, the supposed "no" became a Yes!

It is always true, that one should not judge a book by its cover.  The menu of RAMEN SORA was somewhat shabby, but when I opened the first few pages, I was astounded by the informative content. 

The spread above discussed on "How to Enjoy a Ramen" and below was a vivid illustration of the parts / ingredients of a Ramen.  How cool and enlightening!

And this is how our actual RAMEN appeared right before our eyes, see photo below.  
MISO DELUXE SORA RAMEN was recommended by the wait staff to whom I inquired as to which was their bestseller ramen.
It costs Php 435.00, it was good for sharing up to 3-4 persons.
