#CebuFoodCrawl is the first bloggers’ exploration of the best food and restaurants in Cebu. On its first, second, and third, installments in November 27-30, 2015, August 26-29, 2016, and November 30-December 3, 2017 respectively, twenty-five (25) bloggers from around the country were served with internationally known local specialties and must-try recipes by well-loved Cebuano restaurants. Due to the massive success and overwhelming reception of the Cebu Food Crawl on these occasions, the Cebu Bloggers Society is happy to announce that #CebuFoodCrawl2018 is happening on November 30-December 3, 2018.
Cebu is considered as one of the best island destinations in Asia-Pacific region not just for its stunning roster of powdery beaches and islands but also for its unique gastronomic delights, which can be found nowhere else is the country. It is the culinary melting pot of the South, a perfect blend of various influences resulting into a culinary destination uniquely Cebuano, a culinary gem that keeps on evolving, and getting better and tastier over the years.
Cebu Food Crawl will take the participants and their blog and social media followers into a gastronomic journey of the exquisite and addictive taste of Cebu hinting everyone with new destinations in the progressive dining scene of Cebu and new ideas on what establishments to visit on their return.
The 4-day food tour will start with a sweet treat for participants on November 30, 2018 and will end with merienda on the hills on December 3, 2018.
Organizer and Presenters
Cebu Food Crawl is organized by the Cebu Bloggers Society, co-presented by SUN LTE (official network), Cebu Pacific Air (official airline), and TravelBee Business Inn (official residence). CFC is also supported by PayMaya and Grab. The four-day event supports the Zero Food Waste advocacy in-line with our theme this year on “Sustainable Dining”.
Cebu Food Crawl is excited to have Gibbs’ Hot Wings, an establishment which has supported us since Day One, aboard once more. We are thrilled to have our participants try out the “Best hot wings in town” as well as their new offerings!
Also on our roster for the third consecutive year is 10 Dove Street Confectionery! We’re excited to have our participants try out their cakes, pastries and other tasty treats!
In 2015, we featured this establishment as our “Cebuano success story”. This year, The Chocolate Chamber marks a return to the Cebu Food Crawl lineup and our visit will coincide with the launch of their Christmas campaign.
In 2016, our participants were overwhelmed by the variety of great food selections at Sugbo Mercado. This year, we are visiting The Market by Sugbo Mercado, the first containerized food market in Mandaue City!
Also in the same year, Marco Polo Plaza Cebu brought the Cebu Food Crawl (CFC) team to a Sizzling Night. As Cebu City’s finest marks a comeback to this year’s CFC roster, we can’t wait to experience what they will be offering!
After debuting in last year’s edition, we are thrilled to welcome back, The Detox Bar – Cebu to this year’s roster. Within a span of a year, this brand has grown so much and has recently been relaunched as a Vegan Café and Integrative Nutrition Center. The Detox Bar is known for its signature health drinks and plant-based food offerings. As we start to lean towards healthy options, I’m sure our participants will love this stop.
We are happy to have, for the first time ever, a proudly Cebuano brand that has grown through the years, Harbour City Dimsum House. They are a Cebuano favorite for their sumptuous Dimsum treats and wide array of steamed and fried dishes.
