*Cebu Food Crawl 2018

#‎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”.

Participating Establishments

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.

Rounding up our lineup for this year are first-timers in the Cebu Food Crawl!

Guion serves really interesting cocktails with Filipino flair.

Handuraw is a pizza place and events cafe popular for their thin crust.

The Cove is Bluewater Maribago’s Live Seafood Restaurant which promotes sustainable use of coastal and marine resources, supporting local fishermen and ocean protection.

Bigby’s is a popular restaurant in Cagayan de Oro which has spread its wings in Cebu. They serve premium travel-inspired food in BIG servings.

Bigby’s sister resto, Boy Zugba, also ventured to Cebu this year. They boast of an array of home-cooked grilled food and boodle sets.

The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, a brand centered on passion, supports the Cebu Food Crawl by providing our participants a venue to pursue their passions and upload their photos and stories during the whole weekend!

10 Dove Street Delightful Desserts

A new sweet and dainty dessert place at Cebu’s food avenue, AS Fortuna is Cebu Food Crawl’s 4th stopover. 10 Dove Street is a well-loved dessert place that used to be located at Sto. Nino Village in Mandaue that reinvents itself to serve a bigger crowd of sweet tooth. Now relocated at Oakridge Business Park in Banilad, it has a lush garden set-up to set your mood while indulging a decadent slice of cake and a cup of hot tea.       

   
 
  
The group’s favorite is the classic Chocolate Decadence (P100.00). 
  
  

The bars and cookies are perfect for coffee too.

A Mango Affair at Cebu City Marriott Hotel

Cebu Food Crawl’s second stopover is at Cebu City Marriott Hotel. General Manager Patrick Carroll welcomes the participants while brilliant hosts Nico Velasquez and Frances Alfafara warms up the food crawlers with some social media games.  
  
  
 
The biggest surprise is the mango coffee themed break set-up. Everything in the buffet is made from mangoes, a clever representation of everything cebu. 

   
    
    
 
  
The malunggay infused siphon tea is a perfect treat for the bursting tummies of the food crawlers.

  
Please follow Marriot’s social media account for announcements.

A Spanish Spread at Ipar’s Restaurante y Bar de Tapas 

Nestled at the heart of the City, at the lush green street of F. Ramos is that spanish restaurant that preserved the spanish influence in Cebu. The first stopover of CBS Cebu Food Crawl is at Ipar’s Restaurante y Bar de Tapas.
  
With a very concise menu of pure and unadulterated Spanish goodness (nothing fusion), the food is cooked and served the way Spain does. 

  
We are served with the bestselling house starters to kickoff Cebu Food Crawl, the first meal of the event.

  
The paella dribbled with the generous stream of olive oil is the best thing in Spanish dining in Cebu! Finish it with kalimotxo cocktail to perfect that pure spanish experience.

Of course, you should not miss Cebu’s best leche flan here.
