The Cebuano food park industry in the Philippines is booming. These places have been go-to venues among food enthusiasts for several years now.
The original food strip, however, may be Fuente’s Larsian.
Many locals and tourists have entered this establishment to fill their stomachs with different versions of Filipino barbecue.
This is arguably the best place to try Cebuano food in the metro, and it is expanding even further. A new stall has emerged on the island, and it has already gained a lot of attention online.
Smiley’s Larsian by the Sea brings an al fresco dining experience you will want to try out yourself. With a relaxing atmosphere and mouth watering delicacies, this will definitely make your evenings more worthwhile.
A HAVEN FOR CEBUANO FOOD
Classic dishes found at the original Larsian branch are on full display at this new eatery. Their selection of Cebu street food favorites will leave you salivating.
Filipino barbecue skewers are some of the most popular in the world. Smiley offers two types of these at their stall. The original recipe has a very familiar taste, but the Larsian version has a sweeter flavor.
They also offer other meat dishes like Liempo, Chorizo, and even the famous pungko-pungko staple, Ginabot.
Some people may not be the biggest fans of meat, but Cebuanos are some of the best seafood chefs in the country. Sutukil, abbreviated from sugba (grill), tuwa (soup), and kilaw (soaked in vinegar), is also very prominent at Smiley’s, with their wide catch of seafood dishes.
The best seller in the stall is the Baked Scallops. Very popular among the many seafood restaurants in the city, this is an instant favorite. They also have some Buttered Garlic Shrimp, Grilled Squid, Tuna Panga (jaw), and Tuna Belly.
To cool off, Smiley’s also offers a variety of delicious desserts to complete your dining experience. They have some fresh fruit shakes made from Dragon Fruit, Avocado, and Guyabano, as well as popular Filipino desserts like Leche Flan and Mango Float.
You will be eating these delicious meals with the calming air at South Road Properties (SRP). There are many plans for this otherwise busy highway to turn into a valuable business venture. Larsian by the Sea is one establishment that will definitely push that forward.
