The Naga City Plaza offers fun and relaxation. Aside from being a go-to spot for jogging, cycling, and other recreational activities, many Nagahanons and Cebuanos drop by the famous boardwalk and nature park for its soothing ambiance.
It’s also a haven for some of the best food in the city. Small eateries and restaurants are located along the entrance to the boardwalk, offering a selection of meals, snacks, and desserts that are sure to satisfy your cravings.
Restaurants nearby sell Cebuano street food delicacies and contemporary trends like Boba Tea and Samgyupsal. Subsequently, grilled food and barbecue are famous cuisines that you can find in many of their stalls.
Cebuanos have been grilling Filipino-style pork and beef barbecues for many years – making it a bonafide staple in the island’s culinary scene.
That said, a less than a year-old restaurant fuses Filipino flavors and ingredients with American barbecue techniques to create appetizing meals that will leave you coming back for more – as many of its customers claim.
