Barbix Barbeque & Grill – Best Pork Barbeque in Cebu?

Who doesn’t love grilled pork barbeque? It’s always been a long-time favorite of the Cebuanos. Aside from classic Cebu barbeque places like Larsian and Matias, one of the places where you can get authentic and delicious Cebuano barbeque is at BARBIX Barbeque & Grill.

E Zone

Barbix is located at the E. Zone, F. Cabahug St., Cebu City, and it’s right next to the Bonifacio District. The place itself is very unassuming and has lots of other restaurants, spas, gyms, and a carwash. If you’re having a hard time finding the place, just look for the Balamban Liempo restaurant fronting the complex, and head straight inside.

7 Days in Tokyo, Japan

It was in December of 2018 that I was able to go to one of my dream places in Asia, the Land of the Rising Sun, Japan. It also marked the first time I was able to travel with my girlfriend and her family and we spent one whole week in the capital of Tokyo.

DAY 1 – Tokyo Skytree

It was also my first time to actually depart from the new Mactan Cebu International Airport (MCIA). I’ve got to say, it’s a really beautiful work of art from both the outside and inside.

Dining at Fat Dois

There’s this new restaurant in Cebu that’s been getting a lot of attention as of late. If you’ve passed by A.S. Fortuna Road in the last couple of months, then you’ve probably seen it. It’s a very small and unassuming area just along the road that doesn’t even have a designated parking area. Yet there are droves of people queuing outside, waiting up to 2-3 hours just to be able to dine and partake. Which restaurant am I talking about? It’s the restaurant known as Fat Dois.

A review of the Logitech G302 Daedalus Prime Gaming Mouse and G440 Hard Gaming Mouse Pad

Today we’ve got a review on some gaming peripherals from Logitech! We’re going to be featuring the Logitech G302 Daedalus Prime MOBA Gaming Mouse & the Logitech G440 Hard Gaming Mouse Pad. Last March 20-22, 2015, I was able to go with the eSportsINQ team for media coverage of the Major All Stars Season 1 Dota 2 Tournament in Malaysia. One of their major sponsors was Logitech, and they had a booth that promoted the G302 Daedalus Prime Mouse as well as the G100S gaming keyboard. They had computers set-up so you could try the mouse & keyboard combo in a 1v1 Dota 2 matchup against a friend or random opponent. Their booth was pretty interesting and lots of promos and stickers were given out with purchases. The deal I got was too good to pass up. I was looking for a new mouse & pad for my gaming set-up at home anyway, so I snagged it on the last day of the event.

Dining at Yakimix

Hey, everyone!

Sorry for the long hiatus. Internet was down for the past 5 weeks, so I wasn’t able to get any content done. But I have a lot of posts lined up in the next few days. Last week, I was able to eat at Yakimix. It’s the latest restaurant to open here in Cebu that features an eat-all-you-can, and it’s surprisingly similar to Tokyo Table, and I also did a blog post about that which you can check out here.

Yakimix isĀ an eat and drink all you can restaurant that focuses on sushi and a smokeless grill. Most of the cuisine is centered around Japanese and Asian Fusion dishes, with the convenient option to grill meat and seafood as well. It is located in Capitol Square in Escario Street. It’s across Escario Central, and if you see the Jollibee restaurant, just go inside the newly renovated plaza area, and you’re already there.
