Gaslamp District: A Food Paradise on the Mountains of Busay

Gaslamp District is a new hangout spot for anyone traversing the neighborhood of Busay.

While public transport took a back seat during quarantine, other forms of transportation filled the void. Bicycles in particular have become a popular mode of transport for traveling around Cebu.

Cycling has also become a prominent form of exercise, with fitness junkies traveling to notable areas like the man-made forest in Minglanilla and the mountain barangays of the city.

One of the most popular cycling areas in the city is the iconic Cebu Transcentral Highway, or what is more commonly called the TCH. This 33-kilometer road offers breathtaking views and a wonderful atmosphere that has turned it into a haven for Cebu’s best tourist spots.

Notable sought-after locations include the magnificent Temple of Leah, multiple flower gardens like Little Amsterdam and Buwakan ni Alejandra, outdoor dining hangout spots like Chixboy, and fine dining restaurants like Chateau de Busay.

Since it welcomes a large portion of the city’s cycling community, it also offers a bunch of pit stops along several winding roads and highways. This includes the newly opened mountain-top food park known as Gaslamp District.

Enjoy a fresh al fresco dining experience, complete with a relaxing breeze and a beautiful view of the city.

Situated in Barangay Babag, it is only 10 minutes away from the main road. It can serve as a quick rest stop for long road trips, whether you’re traveling north or south.

The food park includes famous restaurant kiosks and tenants from other established food parks in the city, offering a wide variety of scrumptious meals, hefty snacks, and sweet desserts.

Gaslamp District offers both traditional and modern Filipino food favorites.

Al fresco dining is much more enjoyable with a relaxing and ambient atmosphere.

The cycling motif definitely stands out at this impressive food park.
