After a day of over looking our store, we received an invitation from Doi of thetravellingfeet.com, to come with her to Fuente Osmena to take some pictures of the products and other pasalubong items of Shamrock Bakery in Fuente Rotonda. We decided to accept the invitation, granting that we will take our dinner in Larsian, the well known place for everything grilled here in Cebu.
Larsian sa Fuente is one of my favorite food stops here in Cebu. It is a bustling compound with a dozen or more stores selling grilled food items like pork bbq, pork chops, hotdogs, chorizo, chicken innards and liver, squid and other sea food. Ever since my Medrep years, I make it a point to have dinner here every time I finished visiting my doctors in nearby hospitals, and now that I am based here in Cebu for over a year now, I am still excited to go back to this place.

It is also a favorite hang out for barkadas and friends because stores here serve cheap but delicious food. You can eat bbq together with puso or hanging rice, or have them as your pulutan for beer. To make your meal more mouth watering, make a concoction of vinegar, soy sauce and some chili. And of course, don’t forget to order a bottle of Coke litro. For first timers from Manila, please take note that they don’t have spoon and fork here; you can either eat with your bare hands, or have them wrapped in a plastic bag provided by the store’s attendants.
Pork bbq and other items sells for 10 pesos per stick while a quarter of chicken, squid and bangus costs around 40-50 pesos per piece. For 15 pesos, you can order a stick my favorite chicken liver or a stick of juicy pork spare ribs. For the more adventurous, try ordering isaw, or chicken intestines.

Larsian grilled foods with Cebu’s hanging rice puso – sarap!
Your Larsian experience is not complete without inhaling smoke coming from all the cooking and grilling. Be prepared to smell like your pork bbq after your dinner. But unlike President Erap, you don’t have to worry eating here, for the ambiance here in Larsian is free. Happy eating every one.
