Note: M.I.Y.O. Monday stands for Make It Your Own Monday, a question thrown out to DCF readers every Monday to jumpstart the week with lively interaction. I also welcome questions and suggestions for future MIYO Mondays. Email me.

Hey DCF peeps in Cebu, I’m headed your way!

The first and last time I was in Cebu was in 1999. I remember eating a lot of puso (hanging rice) and grilled chicken livers drowning in strong vinegar. I remember eating a lot of seafood and walking on the beachfront of our hotel, the Shangri-La Mactan.

Other than that, I remember nothing else. (Pathetic, I say.)

I don’t travel much within the Philippines, a fact I’m trying to rectify, so I’m especially excited to be going to Cebu, even if this is just a spontaneous, overnight trip. I’ve read many, many things about the dynamic dining there’s to be had here plus of course Zubuchon and Oh Georg!, the owner of which, I’m told, is a great fan of DCF. And oh, is La Marea the best place to have dessert here?

Clearly, I need help because I know close to nothing about this great city. So tell me, what should I eat in Cebu?

Thanks in advance for all your suggestions and recommendations!
