Are Filipinas Getting Fatter? (Fried Food in the Philippines)

The Philippines is definitely not known for its food and thanks to a lot of it being fried and oily, plus a lot of western fast food around, you’ll notice Pinays have more cushion for the pushin’ than other Asian girls.

Top 6 Restaurants in Cebu

It takes awhile to get settled into any new place and Cebu is no different. Finding the right restaurants in Cebu took me quite awhile but eventually I was able to locate some good ones. Originally I was eating almost all of my meals at Ayala Center Cebu, but now I am down to only eating half my meals from there :).  Still just knowing that there are good restaurants at Ayala is not enough, you need to know the right ones to choose from.
