Over 60 food establishments and brands giving out free samples of their best products.

Last Friday, 19 May 2017, the rhythm crew attended the Best of Cebu Party held at the Grand Ballroom of the Waterfront Hotel Cebu. The party, which is organized by SunStar Publishing Group, was a celebration of the best things Cebu had to offer from the year 2016. There were over 60 various food establishments, hotels, and service providers, each of whom showcased their best offers.

One of the food establishments present was Pizza Republic “Pick + Mix” by Giuseppe Genco, which was awarded the Best Pizza in Cebu. Cherry May, who works at the frontline for the pizza parlor, says they’re the best pizza place in Cebu because theirs is the most unique. “In Pizza Republic, you get to decide what goes on top of your pizza.“

Mark Congmon, on the other hand, also shared what makes his family’s restaurant the best. Mark’s family owns Everything Yummy, which has been awarded the Best Porkchop of Cebu for 3 years in a row.  Mark tells me that it’s because their porkchop is “made with love and mixed with a lot of good ingeredients with high quality.”

All of the food stalls at the party gave away free samples of their food, making sure nobody starved throughout the night. Later, everyone was treated to a rousing performance from the best band of Cebu; Missing Filemon. The band played their best Bisaya hits including Englisera, Inday, and Kamagayan. All the various homegrown establishments made me proud to be a Cebuano, but Missing Filemon’s music made me even prouder!
