We have tried several cuisine during our numerous visit to Cebu but each visit never ceases to tickle our taste buds with it rich cuisine.
One of the flavourful local restaurant that caught our attention is Chika-an. From its eye-catching name to the fish shaped design of its name logo that gives you the inference that you will find an extensive selection of seafood choices.
We decided to try some of their best-sellers and these are just a few of the dishes that Cebuanos love:
One of the signature dish that you should try when visiting Cebu. We love that Chika-an’s version is less salty and creamier, tender morsels of the scallop that melts in your mouth while it bursts of its seafood goodness
Its coconut milk complemented the succulent shrimp very well with nice touch of the spicy gingery flavour that is a great match to a steaming hot rice.
Fresh catch is the name of the game. Cebu’s marine life is abundant within the city limits, hence, freshness will never be compromised. Chika-an’s version of this dish has the perfect combination of sweetness and tangy kick over the sizzling grilled fish.
Tender beef pieces that is rich in flavour coming from infusion of Potato, carrots and Saba banana is such a diet buster.
Their version is juicy and tasty with the right Char on its skin. Marinating is the key to its flavour sipping through the meat and not like other version wherein flavour is concentrated only in the skin.
We Filipinos grab every opportunity we get whenever we see unlimited rice. Aside from the fact that we have a rice-staple diet in the country, we just love how rice complement the rich flavour of our cuisine. Chika-an offers unlimited rice.
When in Cebu, do visit Chika-an branches located at Robinson’s Galleria Cebu, SM Cebu, Park Mall, SM Consolacion, Ayala Terraces, Lahug and Pacific branches.
