I was a bit more prepared for our Cebu trip compared to my first trip there. Before, I just wanted to go to the top recommended places in Cebu. This trip however is a bit different, for starters I have more money to spend so I can really go all out an enjoy eating without worrying to much about money. Aside from that, I also have 3 people with me who LOVE to eat. We are not certified foodies, but we do have a passion for eating food.
I asked two of my friends if they can recommend top restos or places to eat in Cebu. One of which was SuTuKil. Although Tammy really didn’t mention a specific name for the place, she just told me to hop on the taxi from the airport and tell the driver to bring as to a SuTuKil place. When she mentioned it to me, I had no idea what SuTuKil meant, but she just told me that it’s a place where we can eat fresh seafood – paluto style (you buy the seafood and tell them the way you want it to be cooked).
Mouth Watering Seafood
I did just what Tammy told me to do. When we got to Cebu, we got in a cab and I immediately told the cabbie to bring us to a SuTuKil place. After a few minutes we arrived at Rosewil’s SuTuKil. Now, SuTuKil stands for Sugba, Tula, Kilawin- which is the different ways they offer the seafood to be cooked Sugba means grilled, Tula means stewed or simmered, and Kilawin means raw or cooked with vinegar.
We left our stuff inside the resto and we went ahead to choose the seafood that we want cooked the way we want it to be cooked. There was a lot of types of seafood to choose from, so it was a bit overwhelming for a bit. Eventually we ordered shrimp, squid, parrot fish, and seaweed. The outcome? Check the photos below:
For four people, what we ordered was a feast (of course we had two rice platters). The best for me was the spicy shrimp, because it was cooked perfectly, and the calamari, fresh squid+cooked the right way = not like chewing gummy candies.
I highly recommend that you try Rosewil’s SuTuKil if you ever go to Cebu. Before going to the city eat here first or before leaving.
