Locales: Alexis Yap

We ask TV host and restaurant owner Alexis Yap about his favorite spots in Cebu, and why he thinks they’re the best on the island. Whether they’re obvious choices or obscure destinations you’ve never heard of before, they’ll be a refreshing step off the beaten path.

ALEJANDRO’S CRISPY PATA
I feel relaxed sitting outside at night with the cool breeze, enjoying a glass of calamansi juice, while hanging out with my friends. Also, it’s home to the best crispy pata in Cebu!

BURGAHOLIC
Located near Sacred Heart School for Girls’ back gate, this hole-in-the-wall burger place makes the meanest, honest-to-grilled-goodness sirloin beef burgers! Their special sauces that add to the kick are just to-die-for.

MOUNTAIN VIEW
I like going to Mountain View because it takes you away from the cray in the city. The cooler temperatures and cleaner are are quite refreshing.
