What you'll do

The tour will consist of 6 stops for 2-3 hours. The tour will start in the famous street of Colon for the Punko-punko experience and chicken barbeque. Second stop would be going to a small street which can only be described as a “hole in the wall” where you will try siomai, the Filipino Dumpling. Third stop is the walk along Carbon market towards Barangay Pasil. A place where you will try a fish soup called Larang and it’s known only to the residents of Pasil. This soup place has been running for a few decades now. Inside Pasil, you will also try the famous Tuslob-Buwa : pig’s brain with oil and soy sauce cooked in a wok until bubbles (buwa) are formed through boiling, you will then have your Puso (rice cooked inside a weaved palm leaf) dipped (tuslob) inside the wok to scrape the bubbles formed - this is a communal activity and don’t be surprised if there are locals around you sharing the same Buwa. Finally, dessert! Here you will be taken to a place were you can get the sticky rice with local chocolate (tablea). Or another option will be the Halo-halo or Mixed-mixed is a dessert made of mixed fruits, sweet beans, milk, and shaved ice, typically topped with purple yam and Ube ice cream. And if there’s anything else that catches your fancy as we walk along the narrow streets then just let me know and I’ll be happy to let you sample that as well.

Prue

Hello there, You can call me Prue!!! :) I've been working as a freelance guide for a street food tour around the downtown area in Cebu City for more than 2 years already. I considered myself as a foodie. And it just started out that I will bring my friends who are traveling to Cebu to local places or Filipino restaurants around the city. Then my friends connected me to their friends who are also coming to Cebu. It's fun taking them around since I know that we can share stories, histories and experiences through food. From then on I decided that I want to share more of these stories to other people. And encourage them to try something new and learn more about the locals. So come and join me in this unique and one of a kind street food tour.
