DINING: Suman at Tsokolate at Club Serena Resort, Moalboal, Cebu

Moalboal is known to be one of the best dive destinations in the Philippines and because of its proximity to Cebu City, Cebuanos are starting to frequent Moalboal’s beaches for its crystal waters and well, its fine white sand.

A trip to the beach in the middle of a storm wasn’t so bad after all. Yes I wasn’t able to get that poster perfect tan but boy did I have an awesome time.

While it was impossible to enjoy the beach given the bad weather it’s never impossible under any circumstances to have a good time especially when there’s food around.

It’s a good thing that Club Serena, the resort right beside where we were staying had its own restaurant because ours didn’t.

The resorts menu offered quite a variety of international food. I was a bit disappointed I didn’t find Danggit on the menu, I mean, since I was in Cebu I was kinda expecting to see it on any menu. But the following quite made up for that minor disappointment.

 Grilled Squid php202

Pork BBQ php162

Shrimp with Cashew Nuts php 241

 Mango Cheesecake php95

The only signature Pinoy food they offered was Turon and Suman at Tsokolate. We didn’t get to try the Turon since the guests from California had a field day with all the bananas and bought it wholesale but I had the Suman at Tsokolate twice and I had it in the space of less than 24 hours.

  Suman at Tsokolate with Ripe Mango php174

Club Serena's Suman at native Tsokolate with ripe mangoes on the side was so good i had to have it as a midnight snack and for breakfast the next day.  The native hot chocolate in an espresso cup had a perfect blend of sweetness and bitternes and the serving size was just right, perfect foil to the chilly weather. I expected to hate biting into small slices of ginger but the subtle herby taste refreshed the palate and balanced all the sweetness. Biting into it turned out  to be quite a pleasant surprise!

The best part is this - a well stocked bar.

bottle of Gato Negro php350
