Locales: Mayan Benedicto

We ask travel guide Mayan Benedicto about her favorite spots in Cebu, and why she thinks they’re the best on the island. Whether it’s an obvious choice or an obscure destination you’ve never heard of before, it’ll be a refreshing step off the beaten path.

MOLAVE MILK STATION

Every time I drive down south, I love making a stop at the Molave Milk Station in Barili. It’s a little tricky to find, but when you get to the town, look for a cow farm on the right side of the road. The Milk Station is right by a curve turning left. I always have to get a few cones of their ice cream! It’s soft ice cream made from fresh cow milk, so it’s definitely mouthwatering. They also sell items like barquillos.

BAKHAW BEACH

There is a secluded beach in Camotes Island called Bakhaw Beach. It. Is. Just. Breathtaking! Most people go to Santiago Beach, but I find this beach more attractive because it’s not surrounded by any resorts or restaurants. If you plan on doing a beach/camping trip, this is your spot. Pitch in your tent and soak up in the sun!

OSMEÑA PEAK

Osmeña Peak in Mantalongon, Dalaguete is popular among climbers. I’m no climber, yet I still love going back there. The hike awaiting you from the Mantalongon market up to the peak is full of breathtaking views, overlooking the vegetable farms. And the best part is when you reach the peak – what a majestic view! It never gets old. You can also camp there overnight. No fees. I warn you, though, it can get really cold!

Zee’s Pick for the Week

Tickle Your Palate with Father’s Eggs

ZEE picks an interesting dessert for our reader’s sweet passions.  Plantation Bay’s Bakeshop by the Beach created a dessert specialty that will tickle both your palate and naughty thoughts.

Pastry Chef Gerard Apurado presented a unique treat for this year’s Father’s Day, it is called Father’s Eggs.  However, Father’s Eggs received highly positive feedback from their clientele and from food critics.  And the people could not stop ordering them; so why not make everyday a Father’s Day?

Father’s Eggs are delicately crafted custard inside an eggshell; plus, it comes in six different flavors:  coffee, pandan, strawberry, ube, plain custard, and mango.  However, each flavor is given a playful name by Chef Apurado.  The amazing part is that every flavor is so distinct and crave-worthy.  Chef Apurado is keeping the recipe a secret; but everyone can order Father’s Eggs at the Plantation Bay’s Bakeshop by the Beach Facebook page.
