Yayoy`s - Cebu City


Yayoy`s Grill & Resto Bar: Couldn`t believe the difference

As the above title says I couldn`t believe the difference & improvements that now made up Yayoy`s

18 mnths earlier this was just your average slightly run down grill & resto bar.Everything about this place before was average.

A walk along the street on the way to a nearby restaurant bought a great surprise & a promise to return & see if it was as good as it looked from the outside.

Yayoys seats around 200 in both an indoor type setting & a garden setting(all undercover).

The ambience is really impressive,staff very willing to help,food very tasty both from the restaurant & grill,some nights there is live entertainment.

The cost here is quite good very reasonable.

After you have finished your meal some nights there is a live band as well as a couple of dart boards if that`s your game..

All round very impressive & every time i`m in Cebu City I will definetly be returning

Favorite Dish: The Tuna Belly was delicious but my absolute favourite was the Beef Pochero.Also I can recommend the Sizzling Gambos as well as the Pork Belly.

From an Australian point of view the beer is ice cold(see my favourites tip)

Address: T Orchid St Barangay Capitol

Price Comparison: about average

Directions: If travelling along Osmena Boulevard turn at Jovens Grill & it`s the 3rd street on the right.Then go about 70 metres along & it`s on the left

Price: US$11-20

Spice Fusion - Cebu City

Spice Fusion

Spice Fusion: A great mix

Spice Fusion is as it`s title says a mixture of several S/E Asian countries & some of their cullinary delights.

This restaurant offers you the opportunity to select meals from different places & also different meal types.

Spice Fusion offers both A/C indoor dining or as I did you can dine Alfresco & seats probably 100 combined.

The night I was there wasn`t packed but a good crowd was in attendence.Your order was taken promptly,drinks served within 5 mins of being ordered & food was delivered within 20 mins of being ordered which was 3 good size mains & a rice platter.Waiters always attentive & willing to attend to whatever it was you needed.

Spice Fusion is in my opinion fairly well priced for an upper class restaurant,3 mains & large fried rice platter 4 Bottles SML & 2 fruit shakes cost around 1300 PHP which for me is less than $35 AUD.

A good experience would definetly return.

NB:: Spice Fusion is now open in the new north wing of SM Mall

Favorite Dish: The Sweet & Sour Pork was nice.The BBQ Beef Satay also enjoyable as was the Shanghai fried rice.I particularily liked the size of the meals

Address: Banilad town centre, Talamban Road Talamban

Price Comparison: more expensive than average

Directions: Just ask the taxi to take you to Banilad town centre,Its in the middle about 50 mtres in on the right

Price: US$21-30
