The top four restaurants to celebrate Christmas at

Although a home cooked meal has its appeal of comfort and familiarity, Cebu’s new restaurants present dishes with flavours not easily replicated at home. Zee Lifestyle asks Circa 1900, Trattoria da Gianni and Cocina de la Casa about the dishes they’ll be serving holiday diners, while The Pig & Palm introduces a new menu for the season.
