Rain, rain go away come again another day!! This is the favorite song of my girl and she was singing this song on the way to the canteen.

Anyway, try this lomi from Neng. Its so perfect for a cold and rainy Wednesday.

Cafe Sarree: Cebu City Comfort Eats

Cebu City is well known for it’s various dining destinations. I assume you have heard about the Zugbuchon, the Larsians and the amazing view and food choices at Lantaw Floating Restaurant. But there is more in Cebu than just lechon and sugbo and native dishes. Head out to Cafe Sarree, a relatively new food joint at Escario Central Mall and you’ll be surprised at how much you are actually missing out.

Cafe Sarree is a small and cozy restaurant with modern yet intimate feel. This is the place you go when you want to celebrate or simply bond with your family and friends. They have a huge selection of foods that you won’t easily find anywhere so it’s truly refreshing to check their menu. So we tried the Mushroom soup, the Southern Style Glazed Belly and the Lamb Adobo and we could not find anything to say except that they are superbly cooked! We were so happy with our dining experience at Cafe Sarree and decided that we will come back again to try out their famed breakfast options. 

The food are all affordably priced and each peso you spend here will be truly well worth it. 

Below are some of the delectable dishes that you can try:

Dining Out – It Doesn’t Automatically Mean You’ll Be Eating Empty Calories


Sometimes it seems like there’s a never-ending parade of newspaper and TV reports on the dangers of eating out.  Many of these reports focus on fast food restaurants and the huge number of calories in just one of their hamburgers.  By the time you add in a soft drink and some French fries, all of a sudden the calories have piled up to more than you should consume for the entire day.  And many of them are nutritionally empty calories, not wholesome sources of the energy your body needs.

Fortunately, not all Chicago restaurants serve foods that are nutritionally empty but packed with calories like fast food burgers and fries.  Many of the city’s restaurants serve tasty but nutritious dishes, and a lot of them feature several “lighter fare” or low calorie items on their menus.  That’s why dining out doesn’t automatically mean you’ll be eating lots of nutritionally empty calories. 

Of all the Polish restaurants Chicago has to offer (and believe me, there are a lot!), I’ve always thought that Olivia’s Taste Polish Restaurant has one of the largest selections of “light” menu items.  The authentic Polish dishes that Olivia’s serves will have you leaving the restaurant happy and with a satisfied belly, but not weighed down by empty calories like you would be at some Chicago restaurants, fast food and otherwise.  And several of Olivia’s lighter dishes will help you satisfy your taste buds even though you’re eating healthy, wholesome, delicious food.

More and more people are looking for lighter items on restaurant menus.  This trend is probably partially fueled by all the newspaper and TV reports on the unhealthy foods being sold by many fast food restaurants.  Olivia’s Taste Polish Restaurant serves a filling but healthy meal-size Chicken Caesar Salad which includes lettuce, grilled chicken (not fried like you might find at some other places) parmesan cheese, croutons and Caesar dressing.  If that particular salad doesn’t sound appealing, you could always order Olivia’s meal-size Garden Salad at the same price.  It comes with lettuce, tomato, olives, feta cheese, red onions and dressing.

If you want a really light meal, you could opt for one of the soups that are specialties at Olivia’s Taste Polish Restaurant.  The soups on the menu every day include white borsch with Polish sausage/kielbasa (probably not the most dietetic choice), tripe soup, chicken soup and sauerkraut soup.  Besides those soups, Olivia’s also features a “Soup of the Day,” which rotates between pickle soup, tomato soup, bean soup, vegetable soup, Ukrainian borsch, red borsch with stuffed dumplings (meat or mushrooms) and mushroom soup.  No matter which one you choose it will be delicious.  I dare you to find that many choices at the other Polish restaurants Chicago offers.
