Although much of the Sinulog activities have been cancelled, the devotion of the Cebuanos to the Sto. Niño is stronger than ever, and despite “safer at home restrictions”, the fiesta continues on our dining tables with exciting discounts and exclusive freebies from the country’s on-demand delivery service, foodpanda.
Over 100 restaurants and food establishments are joining the celebration to make sure that everyone’s cravings are catered to. Enjoy your go-to food orders at a discount of 20% and up. New users who use the code PINKSINULOG get P50 off on their first three orders with a minimum order value of P149, until January 31, 2021.
Here are five local restaurants I recommend so you can feel the Sinulog vibes right at the safety and comforts of home:
OK! Oppa’s Kitchen
Are you in the mood for some Korean food after binge-watching your favorite oppa’s latest K-Drama? Enjoy 35% off on already budget-friendly and delectable Korean meals from OK! Oppa’s Kitchen, which has multiple branches all over Cebu.
Among the many items to choose from are the famous kimchi fried rice, served in gochujang sauce and topped with a sunny-side-up egg, as well as the octopus samgyeopsal, or sotanghon noodles with fried egg and octopus, pork muksal in gochujang sauce. How do the Koreans say it again? “Jal meokkessumnida!” My favorite is their tteokbokki, but it’s always out of stock.
If it’s new and special milk tea choices you’re looking for, Hebrews Shebrews is the one for you.
At 40% off, try an assortment of selections from dark chocolate to sea salt caramel to Oreo cookies and cream overload. The brand also offers special teas such as brown sugar milk tea, strawberry matcha, and the Hebrews Shebrews special tea, described as a “special home-brewed tea with a twist.” My favorite is their Okinawa Milk Tea.
A discussion of the favorite Cebuano dining destinations wouldn’t be complete without the mention of Orange Brutus. The brand has been around since the early ’80s as the metro’s first hamburger food chain.
Since then, the restaurant has expanded its offerings to welcome entire families. One of the best-sellers is the sizzling burger steak. Another go-to is the fried Chicken Brutus, which customers usually pair with mango shake. Get all these and more at 20% off. But, not a lot of people know that you should not miss their Chocolate Monster cake.
Enjoy a dim sum break from Dimsum Break with a 20%-discount!
The brand serves a wide range of options for all kinds of dim sum lovers. Those who prefer it fried can go for the stuffed shrimps, crab pincers, or sweet and sour pork. Meanwhile, the choices for #TeamSteamed include the Shaomai, which has variants of mushroom, quail egg, and chicken. You can also try an assortment of rice pot meals, noodles, and “shaopaos.” My go-to meal at Dimsum Break would be steam fried rice, quail’s egg shao mai, cucumber salad, and fried spring rolls.
Tagged as “the largest company-owned shawarma chain in the Philippines,” Leylam offers affordable and quality Turkish-inspired food.
Satisfy your cravings with Leylam’s signature shawarma that comes in three different styles: over rice, noodles, or in a wrap. Get yours at 25% on a minimum value order of P299.
Not to be outdone by these five foolproof favorites, the rest of the participating restaurants are decidedly fast and flavorful, featuring a variety of dishes that are filled with creativity and deliciousness.
For an even better treat, take home a special Linya-Linya eco bag using the “PRITITEATS” on pick-up orders with a minimum value of P499 to complete your Sinulog gears at home!
