Jacobo's Bistro, Asiatown I.T. Park Lahug

Jacobo's Bistro, a newly opened resto bar in Cebu, is quite a neat place. Vic, Edd, Shake, Greg, Chai and I were looking for a new chillax place and found one! Jacobo's Bistro, pronounced as Hacobos, is located on the ground floor of the building across i1(at the back of Tara's Cafe, IT park).

We ordered Mashed Potato(35php), Plain Rice(30php), Jacobo's Crispy Pata and Salt and Pepper Spare ribs! I enjoyed the salt & pepper spare ribs for its semi sweet pepper chili taste and tender meat. And who doesn't love Crispy Pata. Jacobo's Crispy pata tastes like home made crispy pata with spring onions garnished on top of it! very yummy!

What was great about Jacobo's is the service.Very warm staff and very attentive waitresses.

With a few entrees(and mostly beer munchers) on the menu, that made me think it's made more of a chillax place than a resto for dining; and not to mention the tables are quite small to fit 5 plates and 2 dishes on the middle(basing on our table size which was for 5peeps). But still we enjoyed the food and the place. There also was an acoustic band playing which made the place more welcoming.

And Price is fair enough, being billed 905php for 2 dishes(huge crispy pata & Spare ribs), 5 drinks, 2 mashed potatoes and 7 Rice.

4 out of 5 stars For Jacobo's Bistro!
Food - 4
Service - 5
Ambiance - 4

Mamma Maria's Pizzeria Gorordo Barnch Grand Opening

Happy Independence Day! June 12, 2009 is the scheduled opening of Mama Maria’s Pizzeria Gorordo Ave. Branch (Beside Aerophone). Mama Maria opened its first branch in 2005 and is home of the biggest pizza in the Philippines at 52”.

With several branches in Negros Occidental, they are now open to serve the Cebuanos with 27 Different Pizza Flavors, 6 pizza sizes (8” to 52”) and open round the clock 24/7; looks like the party would never end at Mamma Maria’s!

Mayor Osmena cut the ribbon during the opening and had the first taste of Mamma Maria’s famous Italian gourmet pizza!

Had a slice of kinilaw, kebab, breakfast, margarita, Hawaii and vesuvio pizzas and I must say it’s quite good. You could taste the home made sweet tomato paste garnished with herbs(probably oregano and thyme) and crunchy thin crust just the way I like my Pizza! Mamma Maria’s Pizzas are good shared over a conversation with friends and family!

XXL 30inch pizza is a great muncher for team buildings and officemate bondings! Prices for XXL pizza starts at 695(Margerita) and Single 8 Inch pizza starts st 49(Margerita).

Also on the Menu is Crocodile Pizza! So if you are into eating some exotic dish, try it now! Haven’t tasted it though and will surely do on my next visit.

An interview with Mar Roxas

June 11, 2009, Senator Mar Roxas met with 30 members of CBS for Cebuanos to know more about Mar's views and ideas on issues that our country's facing today.Interesting questions like when will the wedding be with Korina Sanchez be and what are his 4 main political agenda would he be tackling on.

Wedding is still being planned, as Mar is still courting Ms. Korina Sanchez. And Mar has to do "pamanhikan" to 3 siblings and many other relatives since Ms. Sanchez's already parents passed away.

And as for the 4 Problems he would be tackling on are, first is Food on every Filipino Table. And to solve that, is to invest on agriculture by giving our farmers seeds, fertilizers and budget for irrigation. Second is investing on everyone's future which is education. As he said, he would slowly update the outdated system. Next is Fairness and Justice meaning faster and fair court decisions for everyone, rich or poor. And lastly our economy.

And he also mentioned that our no. 1 problem in the country is Graft and Corruption, which is very true. Graft Scandals from lamp posts to noodles that costs 22php per pack, wheeeeew! Only in the Philippines!

Mar mentioning that what we need to solve first is food in every Filipino Table, makes me think that he might be a good president because if you think about it, with food on the table, everyone would have the strength to work and think right. and with that, people who would be going to school since they don't have to ask for alms for food. and with education comes the right knowledge for them to be able to survive.

But of course there would be other candidates that we still need to know more about: their political views and platforms. So for now, let's just hope that there would be no martial law and have a peaceful 2010 election. ; )
