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!

    Where "Cowboys" Eat in Cebu!

    While on the way to SM, Tutubi spotted this restaurant with a funny name along the way.

    Binugoy Restaurant, as Tutubi understood it, name came from the root word bugoy, word to describe to man who can't seem to do anything right. "Kaon nga kinawboy" means you eat like a cowboy i.e. can be comfortable even in unusual situations and not be squeamish.

    Binugoy, from the looks of it, looks like an upscale carinderia (eatery) from the outside. Never got to sample food but will try to do so next time.

    Too bad that you refused to try the food in Binugoy...the word Binugoy is somewhat naughtiness in English...
    So its just like eating in simplicity without any kyeme or kaartihan.
    I can still remember my College days in Cebu which the city is so crowded yet a nice to visit.

    Of course you have to be a local to understand that, so thanks for telling - I would never have known :-)

    eric, not really my officemates wanted Neo-neo. next time when i'm there will try it. i'm also a "cowboy" :P

    rennyba, you have to understand that i may be Filipino but I'm not from Cebu. Cebuanos speak a different language. It's a good thing I can understand it

    if you're adventurous with food, try it out next time. I haven't tried it but they are known to serve exotic food like turtle, wild boar...
