Cebu, Philippines: Family Dinner at Lantaw Native Restaurant SRP at IL CORSO

A day after I was discharged from the hospital in Cebu last year, and this was a day before I left for the Netherlands as well, I managed to go out for dinner with my family.

Sadly, the whole Philippine vacation last year was spent sleeping sick at home and in the hospital. I was glad though that I was able to go out, even for just a night, although not too long as I was still recovering from Pneumonia.

So we chose a new restaurant that is accessible from my parent’s house without having to sit on traffic. The new Lantaw SRP at IL CORSO native restaurant was the choice. It is the third branch of the Lantaw Native Restaurant chain which focuses on local Cebuano food and traditional Filipino cuisine. Cebuano food is pure, putting emphasis on fresh seafood and lots of grilling action. I have been to their Mactan Cordova branch a few years ago.

The food at this restaurant was as usual quite good. Prices are reasonable. There is free and easy parking. It is on the SRP highway where there is very little traffic. Moreover, the restaurant is located beside the water. The outdoor seating is nice in the evening and if you get lucky, you may get some whiff of sea breeze. You need to come here a bit early though as the restaurant can get quickly busy.

This year however we will not be going to the Philippines, but instead we will meet the family in Thailand. It’s been a long time since I have been to Thailand so this is a nice change.

Here is our dinner:
