|Hukad sa Golden Cowrie at Ayala Terraces in Cebu City|
Since I started traveling to Cebu City, I have heard about Golden Cowrie's popularity among foodies and I've always wanted to sample their dishes. Although I only got to taste it for the first time in 2009, it was worth the wait.
Golden Cowrie's original establishment is located at Mactan Island but they also established one at the second level of Ayala Terraces which is called Hukad sa Golden Cowrie. Golden Cowrie Native Restaurant first opened its doors in 1982 but is now being managed by the Koksengs who retained the diners' well-loved dishes, as well as their loyal and efficient staff.
|Crispy Pata served at Hukad sa Golden Cowrie|
Hukad sa Golden Cowrie offers one of Cebu City's best tasting Crispy Pata, a slab of pata (pork leg) that has been seasoned well. The pork lard was fried to a perfect crisp yet retaining its tender meat hindering you from going ballistic as you munch every bite.
|Dinuguan with Puto served at Hukad sa Golden Cowrie|
For merienda (afternoon snacks), savor the comforting taste of Dinuguan with Puto, the thick dinuguan sauce is packed with pieces of pork cubes two pieces of puto (rice cakes) steamed in fresh banana leaves. Their Puto is akin to Laguna's best tasting puto that I have come to love over the years. Soft rice buns are the best accompaniment when eating dinuguan during snacks but white rice may also be paired when having this delicious exotic dish for lunch or dinner.
