Cebu Larsian BBQ - More Fun in the Philippines
Cebu City's Larsian BBQ is a must visit for street food enthusiasts.
I found my way to Larsian BBQ easily with the help of staff at Golden Prince Hotel and Suites. The helpful concierge staff drew me a detailed map when I mentioned that I wanted to walk to Larsian BBQ. I was at Larsian BBQ after just 20 minutes walk, thanks to the detailed sketch map.
Larsian BBQ is right beside Chong Hua Hospital and the Robinson Malls at the bustling Fuente Osmena Circle in Cebu City, Philippines.
All the stalls in Larsian specialise in BBQ seafood, meat and sausages.
Competition is stiff among the 30 stalls at Larsian BBQ. Every stall holder understandably wants you to eat at their stall.
This was the spread at one of the 30 or so stalls at Larsian BBQ. Most of the stalls offer more or less the same spread. The prices are very reasonable.
These fresh mullet fish stuffed with colourful diced vegetables looked beautiful to me.
Local sausages. I avoid these as they are loaded with fat, chemical taste enhancers, preservatives and colouring.
Much more healthful thick Marlin steak.
The popular pig intestines.
All the BBQ pits are located at the center court.
After receiving orders, the stall holder will bring the ingredients to the BBQ pits in the center court to grill it over red hot charcoal.
This is a great idea as the bright and clean dining area which rings around the food center is pretty free of cooking fumes and aromas.
Fresh fish skewered with a bamboo stick, grilling over a bed of fiery red hot charcoal.
Somebody will be enjoying their beautifully charred grilled dinner very soon.
Locals like to eat their grilled seafood and meat with puso, which is boiled rice wrapped in sachets made with coconut leaves.
Larsian BBQ is the perfect place to eat like a local in Cebu City, Philippines.
