About This Blog
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!

    Cebu's Abuhan Pochero: Kalami Gyud!

    One of recommended restaurants in Cebu City visited again by Tutubi to partake of the famous pochero, Cebu's version of the Tagalog's bulalo, a soup made of beef and one of Tutubi's favorite comfort food.

    the homey ambiance of the Abuhan Dos on Ramos St. near Fuente Osmena downtown Cebu City.

    The pochero (price: P350.00) came in one big bowl with one order good for 2 to 4 persons, still steaming hot, the way it should always be.

    What makes Cebu's pochero distinct from Batangas Bulalo? It's the presence of white corn!

    a close up view of pochero oozing with "utak," actually bone marrow, goodness. (Shot in dim light and hundgry stomach thus blurred output)

    a motion-blurred picture of Tutubi's buddy from Batangas to add scale to the pochero bowl. He's about 5 feet 10 inches tall and 190 lbs and he wasn't able to slurp all the marrowy goodness of the pochero

    Even with Tutubi's hefty companion, they weren't able to finish one order of Abuhan pochero, so they requested for the soup and bones be taken out and eaten at breakfast the next day...Abuhan pochero, ka-lami gyud!

    jazzy jaz, hehe

    photo cache, i'm also thinking of learning how to cook bulalo. it's a simple recipe but quite time consuming

    docgelo, you can make your own there, ingredients not hard to get

    nina, my companion and i shared one order not one for each of us hehe

    Kalami gyud kaayo ba.. lalo na yung mga food nila tsaka ang gusto ko dun yung tuyo.

    TIP ko lang: nag book ako sa golets.com ng reservation ko sa Gran Prix. Mura lang ang rates.
