Let me tell you this, I've been to Kublai Khan's Mongolian restaurant recently in Ayala Terraces but I have already discovered this gastronomic haven when I first came here in Cebu way back 2008. Thanks to a friend who brought me there! Still, it never disappoints me. If you want to check my blog review then, CLICK HERE. 

As to their catchy tag line, "Don't Blame the Cook, He just put in Fire", this would signal you that if you don't like the taste of your dish, make sure you do it perfectly the second time around. Again, don't blame the cook!

To explain further, you have the option to choose ingredients, mix flavors and have the Head Cook do his job. After a few minutes, your own dish creation will be served.

Last week, I revisited the restaurant in their new space at Level 3, Ayala Terraces and exercised my right to choose ingredients for my dish. Since I don't eat red meat, I went for a clash of seafoods galore flavah! I certainly didn't blame the cook as I loved the outcome of my dish concoction. I had a few of the spicy, sweet sauces well-blended together.  And I'm sure I had the right spices sprinkled on it. Definitely, expecting a colorful and palatable dish devoured.

Here's a few photos I'm sharing with you to simply unwind and ease the traumatic effect that the infamous earthquake left me.

Here's the outcome of my creation

If you get the chance to visit the place, these are just one of your options but of course, there's more!

Well, definitely try the EAT-ALL-U-CAN

And for desserts, you can choose from their PEARLS and LECHE FLAN. But since I'm a FLANatic, I went ahead with it. Definitely, one of the best tasting Leche Flan in CEBU CITY. Second to my mom's! A bit bias here! LOL

Yummy Goodness! Try it! The BEST!

Over-all place: Cool, average space, nice lighting, new
Rating: 4 out of 5

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/hikay.resto.1

If you are not a local in the city of Cebu, you might ask what does the word 'hikay' means. In English, it means "food preparation". That's how this restaurant finds its name. It's owned by some of the owners of the Calyx building. It's the main branch in Cebu.

They serve Filipino dishes that are delicious to my palate at very affordable prices. Families, friends, lovers, anyone can simply dine here and have their cravings for local Pinoy cuisine satisfied. Been here twice with friends!

The space could accommodate perhaps less than a hundred people. I definitely love their interiors and  room lighting. Cozy experience with warm, friendly staffs. The restaurant has its own restroom. You can call them for reservations as well (no. provided above).

What we ate when we went there:

Big Flat Bread Cebu

Name of Establishment: Big Flat Bread
Location: Ridges, Mabolo F. Cabahug St, beside the SYKES bldg, at the back of Off Roads Cafe, CEBU
Types of Food: Pizza and Pasta
Over-all place: New and Cozy.
Ratings (1-5): 5 for pizza, 4 for other food

Since it has newly opened, I am excited trying out this new pizza house in town! Of course, together with my best food buddies. Our appetite is out of this world and our palate is very critical. So let's get this done!

By the name itself of the establishment, I thought it is a bakery where you can buy big breads and pastries, or say flat breads? But it isn't! LOL. Silly me! Well, I did my assignment, I asked around and got the information that it's definitely a pizza house--and they serve pastas and other options you can select on their menu.

The restaurant is an original in Cagayan De Oro (CDO) and I believe some opportunists brought it here in CEBU and offered Sugboanons different flavahs of pizza to taste.

As a first timer, expect us to order, PIZZA. What else? And here's what I can share.

This is not something new to you but I guess with the course of time, everyone is going mobile and it seems people find it convenient to simply dial a number, order their food and have it delivered to their homes or offices or to any place. Here in Cebu, I have found one small stall that will certainly cater to your hungry appetite. 

Let me introduce to you my newest discovery, HOTLINE Foodshoppe (details above)! I got the chance to visit the food house instead of simply dialing their delivery number-- have the food delivered at my place-- to experience dining within. Of course, my fellow bloggers are with me so we are at some point, food critic.
