Cafe Noriter

A new hangout has been built at the heart of Cebu City called Café Noriter. Noriter is a Korean word for playground. Aptly named, this place has been frequented by students and yuppies alike for chitchats and pure relaxation.


Owned and operated by Korean Nationals, “Chillax” best describes the place because of the comfortable set-up where coffee drinkers are offered cushions, beanbags and stuffed animals.

This cozy setting is the very reason why this coffee shop became a regular topic of the public audiences.


You can be assured that the place is clean because prior to occupying the zone, staffs clean the venue by vacuuming the area, the pillows and the stuffed animals as well.

The place is more grounded on meeting of friends and family gathering. But be sure to be there early though because you might be on the waiting list for the long queue of customers.

During weekdays patrons are allowed to stay for 3 hours and 2 hours during weekends. Staffs will approach you if you are beyond the allowed period to accept re-orders for extension of stay.

The drinks and the food are a bit pricey though compared to prominent coffee shops in the metropolis.

Phat Pho | a Vietnamese Kitchen

The Abaca group of Restaurants never fails to satisfy my palate. Phat Pho, a Vietnamese Kitchen which is a member of the Abaca Group is an addition to my favorite list of places for reasonably priced delectable indulgence.

Suitably located at Crossroads, Banilad Cebu City, this luncheonette is ambrosial. Once you step into their doors you are welcomed not just by their friendly staffs but also of the distinctive aroma reminiscent of the streets of Vietnam. 

The fragrant smell of their cuisines is so inviting that one’s tummy is assured of pure delightful eating experience.

Though the setting is quite informal, the place spells of stylish dining and posh milieu.

Everything on the menu can be easily prepared by their expert Chefs and orders are served promptly. 

                                                                Pork Rice Paper Rolls

                                                                   Pho Ga Noodle Soup

                                                                 Vietnamese Fried Rice

                                              Coconut Caramel Braised Pork Belly with Egg

                                                                       Chicken Satay 

I would highly recommend this place for family and small group gatherings even friendly dates. They don't accept reservations though, so it's a first come first served basis; better be there early to fill that empty tummy to your heart's content.
