The past two months, I’ve been traveling back and forth between Cebu and my home province of Siquijor, and one of the few modes of transportation is through a land-trip by a bus via the coastal road in southeastern Cebu. Each province, town, or city in the Philippines has a delicacy, a specialty food that usually is unique to that place — and southeastern Cebu is no different. Advertisements
One of our favorite places to visit when in Argao is Alex Kafe, a home cafe owned by the Kintanar family of Argao. Alex, from whom the cafe is named after, is already dead but the cafe still lived on.
Remember our quick trip to Carcar? I mentioned that the reason my sister and I ventured to the small city south of Cebu City was to have dinner. I told her that Carcar has the best lechon in the province. I’ve tasted several other best lechon (such as Rico’s lechon and CnT’s lechon) but I thought Carcar’s lechon was the most delicious because it tasted nearer to the way our lechons in Lazi tasted. Anthony Bourdain’s loss was that he only got to taste one kind of lechon and immediately declared it the best pig ever.
