Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!
Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.
More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!
After the disappointing first dinner at The Port, Tutubi and his officemates asked around for other places to eat near Waterfront and people pointed them to a branch of Neo-Neo which was really near the place.
Neo-Neo restaurant is similarly themed with the popular SUTUKIL restaurants, more like carinderia eateries, in Mactan Island particularly those near the Lapu-lapu Shrine. Customers can choose raw ingredients of isda (fish), tulya (clams), pusit (squid), talaba (oysters) and others while choosing the way they're cooked.
Neo-neo, looking at their menu, is also offering Japanese and Singaporean food to serve the number of tourists from Japan and Singapore frequenting the place.

part of the menu showing prices. Didn't order Manok Bisaya for Manila rats like to order seafood whenever they can The pop word sutukil or (SU-TU-KIL) is a humorous (sounds like "shoot to kill") portmanteau of three Cebuano words: sugba, tuwa, kilaw -- which refer to the three ways of preparing food, particularly seafood like fish. Sugba means to broil over hot charcoal; tuwa means to cook in boiling water together with some spices and seasoning; kilaw means to prepare raw but soaked in vinegar with spices e.g. onions, garlic and pepper quite similar to ceviche of South America using citrus-based marinate and Japan's sashimi (served totally raw but using dipping sauce of soy sauce and wasabi).
Similarly themed restaurants in Cebu are Goodah-Gud and Tsibogs. Neo-Neo has branches on Juan Luna Avenue in Cebu City, Fortuna Street in Mandaue City and Lapulapu City.
The only comment Tutubi has on this restaurant was the slow serving of his fresh buko juice order. Ambiance is typical al fresco but there's also an air-conditioned room but was reserved for the night by a certain group. Tutubi particularly loved the lato kinilaw. This is a recommended restaurant besides Golden Cowrie offering much better choices than the pretentious The Port Seafood Restaurant.

tutubi, baka naman inakyat pa sa puno yung buko para lalong fresh kaya naantala ang dating sa table mo. i really like restaturants na interactive ba, you can cook your own, mostly broil then over a hot coal, less oil di ba.
