“During Sinulog, I would suggest a visit to the famous Basilica Del Sto. Niño. For interior geeks like me, the beautiful mixture of Spanish Baroque, Greco-Roman and Neoclassic concepts of one of the oldest historical sites here in Cebu is a must-see!”

Be adventurous and create your own pizza masterpiece at Pizza Republic. Customers can dress their pizza with as many toppings as they want and choose from over 60 ingredients for a fixed price. The taste of the pizza really depends on the toppings, so carefully choose the ingredients that will taste good together. They also do ready-made pizzas for the less adventurous customers at the same price.

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.
