A Dimsum Lunch

If you have been reading my most recent posts, you would know that I have been writing about my June trips to Cebu and Bohol. Well, I still have some more posts about those trips. There’s one more about enjoying another meal at a cool place with well, a cool friend 🙂

One of my friends in Cebu, Karen, brought me for lunch to the accessible and quite affordable: Dimsum Break at SM Cebu.  As I am fond of the precious quail siomai, I made sure I had that among the food we ordered 🙂 And how was the food? The sheer number of people (professionals, students) who came and had their lunch while we were there would tell you how their food has been faring among the Cebuanos.  As for me, I wouldn’t mind checking out Dimsum Break again when my flights take me to the Queen City of the South 🙂

Office workers and students frequent Dimsum Break at SM Cebu for lunch.

Buzzing About the Bee

During my recent Bohol trip, my brothers and their wives (all based in Bohol) brought me for dinner one time at Bohol Bee Farm in Dauis, Panglao Island. It’s been a couple of years since I last visited the place and I quickly noticed some changes. For one, a pool has been added in and their shop showcasing their organic farm products as well as other pretty souvenirs now has a bigger space. I must say that I love their products and I bought some pasalubong (take home gift) and souvenirs for the hubby who did not come with me on this trip. I bought their natural tea products and their natural honey spread.

Dinner that night was also good. Aside from their regular menu, they also had a special menu for the day which we chose to order. This consisted of sea food. Bohol Bee Farm also has a wide range of  organic tea and juices to choose from. I must also add that they have a cool selection of ice cream flavors which includes malunggay and even tomatoes! And they taste good!

We enjoyed the view of the sea while having  dinner. Family bonding, I must say, is somehow enhanced when we have some great food in a cool farm this side of the world.

P.S. By the way, Bohol Bee Farm also has rooms available for travelers romancing Bohol. They also have a branch at the Island City Mall (ICM) in Bohol’s capital city, Tagbilaran.

It’s Meal Time!

One cool thing while we travel is that we also get the chance reconnect with friends who are based in the place we are visiting. On my recent trip to Cebu, I had that opportunity. As for Filipinos and other Asian cultures, reconnecting with loved ones is not complete without a meal. And my friends made sure that we had both stories and a meal to share while I was in their city.

My friends brought me to dinner at Joven’s Grill in Park Mall. We enjoyed their all-you-can-eat buffet dinner (just over P200 or about 5 USD per person). The food selection includes Filipino, Chinese, Western and Asian Fusion cuisine. For anyone who would like to check this place out, I suggest you come hungry 🙂 They have three other branches in the city including the very accessible Capitol one.

And so over a tummy-filling meal, my girl friends and I did some catching up over our lives and loves. When we finished our meal, we left full of stories enough to warm the heart until our next meeting 🙂
