Far away from the bustling streets of the city, there lies a certain spot in Mactan, a place where I’d lived for almost two decades now. A new food destination opened in the Mactan Newtown Cebu last year where stalls in a hawker-style setup popped up.

Megaworld, the leading and pioneering developer of integrated urban townships, brought a new dining concept in the then newly-opened Mactan Alfresco. This food center, inspired by the ones found in Singapore, showcases the culinary masterpieces of Cebuano cuisine. Each stall offers a different kind of flavor to the table, and here are just some of them:

For those fans of Mexican food, there’s Meximama to satisfy you with its unique and authentic flavors. Who could ever resist some tacos, burritos, and especially their Nachos en Salsa Roja? On another note, every meal is affordable and adjusted to the Filipino palate, so you can never feel guilty of indulging yourself with their offerings!

Cebu’s Lechon is one that is world-renowned, you couldn’t go wrong in tasting one when you visit this place. Mactan Newtown Cebu’s dining center has local Cebuano lechon providers with the likes of Cebu Ayer’s Lechon (named as the Best Lechon Maker in Cebu 2015), Cebu’s Original Lechon Belly, and Ana’s Lechon. They also recently opened the Mactan Newtown Cebu Lechon Pit, which currently roasts 12 mouthwatering lechons at a time.

  3. Yay! Those were all tempting! I missed Lechon Cebu! When i was there i eat lechon like everyday. Thank God hindi naman ako nahighblood! Hahaha! These hawker style food hubs doesn’t seem to be hawker style at all. The food look delicious with high standards. It made hungry really…

  4. Hi mi! I love the new look of your home <3 The marble is to die for! 😀
    Anyway, Cebu really has a lot to offer and it's as if I traveled to Cebu because of your blog. Hopefully someday I can set foot in the lands of Cebu.

  5. Wow??? Certainly a food haven! One place, with different food, no need to wander around! Haha
    Hoping to visit this if ever Gerald and I come back to Cebu, we’re planning to go back next year! 🙂

    I would love to try Choobi CHoobi and Oyster Bay Express because I love seafood! Gerald would definitely love Meximama because one of his faves are tacos! 🙂
