This is a bit of a story/post, but if you’re from Cebu, you might want to continue reading and discover this restaurant.
While most of you in the US or in some other countries enjoy apps that could be very useful like restaurant discovery apps, we here in Cebu (or probably it’s just me) rely on good ‘ol word of mouth. Or better yet, drive and discover new places yourself.
Last Sunday, My hubby and I tried this restaurant that we pass by Agus Road, Lapu-Lapu City. If you’re coming from Imperial Palace, you turn right and probably just 100 meters away is this little restaurant – Gold Mango Grill & Restaurant.
What greets you inside is this simple but quite impressive interior. If you’re like me, dining is not just about the food. To me, it’s the experience. Therefore, the interiors, the food presentation and the service matters a lot.
My slogan for my future (near or far-fetched?) online bridal store says “Love is in the details”. This is how I look at products or in this case, a restaurant. This little restaurant that’s about 30-45minutes from Cebu City is something that speaks of that. If you go to restaurants to just stuff yourself, then you won’t appreciate the details. This is no fine dining or fancy restaurant. It’s just a nice surprise to find something like this in the middle of all the Korean, Japanese Restaurants that seem to be everywhere in this city.
The Crab Relleno is my husband’s favorite. It’s crab shell stuffed with crab meat and some vegetables. But this one’s got lots of real crab meat and just enough vegetables. It’s my first time to try this topped with cheese and it is good.
They also have a selection of wine. I hear the owner is Korean but no Korean food in their menu. They do have just a few selection of food in their menu but I say this place is so much better than going to the usual restaurants in the city.
Note: This is no advertorial. Therefore, I didn’t get paid for writing this nor did we get a free slice of their blueberry cheesecake. But we did get good service from their staff and enjoyed dining there.
