Golden Cowrie, Cebu
The setup is more like Gerry's Grill or Dencio's, or Kalye Juan - typical Filipino restaurant. We dined at their branch in Robinson's just a few meters away from Hotel Stella. As suggested, we ordered Imbao Soup (Php 122), Baked Scallops (Php 129), and their signature dish, Crispy Dinuguan (Php 99).
The Baked Scallops were good, with rich melted cheese toppings that made me finish almost all of it on the plate! Scallops are just too divine. (I'm missing Islas de Gigantes for that!)
The Crispy Dinuguan was a bit overrated. For one, it was not crispy anymore when it was served to us. And second, the serving size was small for the price. The taste was nothing spectacular. I still love Kanin Club's version. =)
