A great mix
Spice Fusion is as it`s title says a mixture of several S/E Asian countries & some of their cullinary delights.
This restaurant offers you the opportunity to select meals from different places & also different meal types.
Spice Fusion offers both A/C indoor dining or as I did you can dine Alfresco & seats probably 100 combined.
The night I was there wasn`t packed but a good crowd was in attendence.Your order was taken promptly,drinks served within 5 mins of being ordered & food was delivered within 20 mins of being ordered which was 3 good size mains & a rice platter.Waiters always attentive & willing to attend to whatever it was you needed.
Spice Fusion is in my opinion fairly well priced for an upper class restaurant,3 mains & large fried rice platter 4 Bottles SML & 2 fruit shakes cost around 1300 PHP which for me is less than $35 AUD.
A good experience would definetly return.
NB:: Spice Fusion is now open in the new north wing of SM Mall The Sweet & Sour Pork was nice.The BBQ Beef Satay also enjoyable as was the Shanghai fried rice.I particularily liked the size of the meals
Not that great!!
I heard so many good things about the seafood in Cebu, so i thought it would be really good, being Plantation Bay is a 5 star resort. I was tricked. I had lobster, crawfish, and some other food and for 6 people it cost over $200 US. Now im not complaining about the price, cuz over here thats normal but i just thought the food would be really really good, when it really wasnt. Like i said before im not much of a seafood lover so i thought it was just me, but that was pretty much the consensus of all of us. One good thing was their drinks, they make this Plantation bay specialty blended drink, i had a couple of those!!! oh yeah and the kalbi was pretty good, thats the korean bbq... With that being said, Plantation Bay is a really beautiful resort... This one specialty blended drink, you gotta try it!!!

Basilica del Minore Sto. Nino
If you want to get more holy at the same time learn something about the Birth place of Christianity in the Philippines then visit this church with towering façade with Romanesque and classical architecture. The church was rebuilt in 1602 in 1735 and was completed in 1739. It is It is the oldest church in Cebu.
Inside the church, you will see painting on the ceilings that reminds me of the Sistine chapel in Rome and old relic of Saints. The image of the Santo Niño, which is kept in the parish convent, is considered the oldest religious relic in the Philippines. This was the image that Magellan gave to Queen Juana as a gift during the baptism of King Humabon and his wife Queen Juana on April 14, 1521.
Another thing that makes this church unique is that Candle vendors wearing colorful clothes in yellow, red or green dance their payers. I am not sure it is an ethnic dance or not. I can’t see much step but just forward then backward. The candle vendors at Magellan’s cross did the same thing.
Can be found along Osmena blvrd. The church is near with other Cebu landmarks like Magellan’s Cross, Old Cebu City hall, Metropolitan Cathedral, Plaza Independencia, Fort San Pedro and Malacang de Cebu. I rode a Jeepney from Capitol building and it is just around 100 meters away after you passed Colon St.
