I'm here for another Cebu related post! I'm going home tomorrow so my cousin wanted me to try a certain food/restaurant that as she said can only be found in Cebu. She asked me if I have tried or have heard about "ginabutan". "Ginabutan" is a local term that comes from the word "ginabut" which means something that is pulled out. I told her I have not heard of it nor tried it so she said that is where we are going to eat today. I am excited of course! It was a bit far from where we came from and when we got out of the jeepeney ( public transportation in the Phil, Google ir!), we had to walk for about 5 minutes and we arrived in this sort of rustic place and it was not a five start restaurant. It is more of a "carinderia or canteen" type. There were lots of people there already and there were tables with a two boxes on top of them. One box, contain the "puso" which is rice wrapped inside coconut leaves and then the other box contains an assortment of fired stuff. (Don't know how to really explain it but look at the picture below.)
The place itself I think will turn off most "delicate" people but I saw a lot of men in business suits eating there and they seem not mind. There are cars outside the shop as well. My cousin said that there are lots of "Ginabutan" places all around Cebu City. The prices won't break your bank as well. I think the three of us, spent less than P200.00 (aprrox US$4.00) pesos all in all. The "puso" costs P3.00, porkchop: P15.00, ginabutan: P10.00, so not bad at all.
If you plan to visit Cebu, do try their "Ginabutan", its cheap and delicious!
How about you?Have you been there? Do you like fried food? Do let me know in the comments below!
