I had the privilege of working in the provinces of Mindanao and Visayas a few years back which gave me the opportunity to savor varieties of local cuisine. Inihaw na manok and baboy (roasted/grilled/barbecue pork and chicken) in particular have flavors that are as diverse as the names that they are known for.
Personally, I am a huge fan of Inihaw na Liempo. Roasted chicken – I can live without. But without good ol’ pork liempo, I’d rather be a vegetarian.
Despite the different names they are known for, I love all of them! This is one of the so many things that I miss since I went back to Manila. The good news is, Zugbu Liempo is here to satisfy my cravings for Cebu’s distinct flavor. It has two specialties: Inihaw na Liempo and Litson Manok.
Zugbu (or Sugbu) literally means “Cebu” in the old days, which basically describes Zugbu Liempo’s faithful adaptation to the classic Cebuano way of preparing Inihaw na Liempo (roasted pork belly).
It’s a marvel of flavor that is different from the other ihawans in the metro. The meat is intricately seasoned and marinated with natural herbs and spices and later on roasted to perfection resulting to a crispy outside and juicy inside.
To experience the authentic Cebuano flavor right at the heart of Quezon City, visit Zugbu Liempo at 79 Maginhawa Street, UP Village, Diliman, Quezon City. Checkout Zugbu Liempo‘s Facebook page by clicking this link to learn more of their exciting promos.
And as they say it in Bisaya, Pagka Lami-a Oy! I have no idea what that means, but it sounds delish.
