It’s been a while since I last blogged about food! I’ve been more focused on travel, obviously. Anyway, now, I’m sharing with you one of my favorite restaurants here in Cebu – Fabio’s!
Located along Veteran’s Drive, next to Sampaloque and Crate Cafe, this restaurant offers pizza, pasta, breakfast food, and many more.
The boyfriend and I first passed by this place some time during the summer. We were actually heading to another restaurant, which was located farther up in the mountains, but I had a mini anxiety attack along the way, so we decided to turn back. And we’ve been going back to Fabio’s ever since.
As you can see, the place has its charm. The wooden details make it feel so homey and relaxing. The area is quite small, though, so it’s ideal for dates and intimate gatherings.
Now, for the food review…
Pesto Pasta (Php 185)
I always order this when I’m at Fabio’s. I love pesto pasta, and although I’m capable of cooking it at home, I still end up ordering it at restaurants all the time. Needless to say, their pesto pasta is delicious. However, if there is one thing that I’ve noticed, it is that they’re not quite consistent with their bread. There are times that it’s served toasted and there are times that it isn’t, just like what you see on the photo above. Personally, I like toasted bread with my pasta. 😀
Strawberry Basil Lemonade (Php 45)
This is a must-try, you guys. It’s really good. That is all I can say. I would choose this over any type of soda any day.
Buttermilk Pancakes (a la carte – Php 100 / with sides – Php 185)
You can never go wrong with pancakes, no matter what time of day it is. Who’s with me? 😀
Honey Sriracha Wings (Php 195) and Carbonara (Php 185)
Although I’m not a fan of this particular flavor for the chicken wings, the boyfriend did like it. As for the carbonara, it was pretty good and the serving size was just enough for the price. But then again, the bread wasn’t toasted this time. lol
Apart from the reasonably priced menu and good food, I like going to Fabio’s because it’s like getting away from the city, but not actually traveling too far away. It’s just about 10 minutes from the city, and although it’s located along the road, the passing vehicles aren’t as bothersome because the restaurant’s ambience and the relaxing view of the trees outside the window will take your mind off of them.
Tip: You can also order from the Sampaloque menu and eat it at Fabio’s. 😉
Another tip: Best time to go is during (or before) sunset. 😉
