Going to the Cebu Food Crawl 2016 is one of the few best decisions I’ve ever made! To be honest I was a bit hesitant to join mainly because I know it’s going to be a LOT of EATING and some of you guys know how keen I am with my diet. But I guess I was meant to be there because things fell right into its places, my worries related to the tour were each answered a week before the actual food crawl so Yes, I finally filled up the form and confirmed with my blogger friends here in CDO so we can make the necessary arrangements for the tour.
The Cebu Food Crawl aimed to take its participants to the best Bisaya na Food experience around the city of Cebu. And true enough, the food crawl did not disappoint! Let me take you with me as I reminisce the amazing experience! I’ll share Day 1 here and do check out this blog for the remaining 3 days gastronomic adventure.
Shoni of Munch Trip and I actually arrived in Cebu a night before the food crawl (August 26) and we got to meet a fellow blogger from Manila who was so kind enough to let me crash into her temporary place for the night too! Thank you Melanie of Matakaw na Bata :D.
1st Stop: MACTAN NEWTOWN LECHON PIT
August 26, that was Friday, sun is up, the weather was great, a little humid but no worries, I got the perfect OOTD (which I will be sharing a little later in this post), finally I met the other bloggers from Luzon and Visayas, and of the course the team behind the Cebu Food Crawl 2016 headed by Atty. Ethelbert Ouano.
Our first stop was at Mactan Alfresco at The Mactan Newtown, a 500-seater covered food strip where every foodie and tourist will have the opportunity to experience delectable foods from Cebu’s finest restaurants and dining joints. Definitely the highlight is the Lechon Pit where it allows the customers to see the preparation of the roasted pig before it is chopped and served.

Aside from the lechon we were also served yummy dishes courtesy of the concessionaires namely Ayer’s lechon, Ana’s lechon, Oyster Bay, Orange Karenderia, Manang Sayong, Choobi Choobi, Meximama, and Muvanz.
