As we get to spend only a weekend in Cebu, you bet we are going to make the best out of it, explore it as much as we can, especially get to eat at some of the best dining concepts here – one of which is Providore Cebu. Providore is one of the lovely restaurants under Raintree.
Inspired by the retro counters, delis, and luncheonettes of yesteryear, Providore Cebu no doubt gives its diners a classic throwback to the time when tomatoes are fresh off the farm and fresh milk in a glass bottle delivered by a milkman. Being a fresh go-to restaurant here in Cebu that is offering authentic American and home-style Filipino cuisine, we sure would not be taking our flight back to Manila without experiencing what they claim to be a full dining experience that will take you back to the good ole days.
With a menu that is filled of all-time favorites, we went to Providore’s Breakfast Buffet to fill our tummies as much as we can to jumpstart our day. Upon entering, you will be able to see that Providore Cebu has a built-in coffee bar, a bistro, and an essential kitchen provisions and a retail area with local artisanal items.
As we are served a load of breakfast options, we opted for the ones that have teased our eyes, made our mouths salivate, and made our palate crave until we get a mouthful of each! We first had a plate of yummy corned beef, egg, and fried rice to really ump us up as the sun greets us a warm hello.
From that classic breakfast plate, we started digging into another classic one that leans more into our Filipino roots. Our plate of longganisa, daing, scrambled egg, and fried rice is a breakfast meal that is as tasty and as filling as you think it would be – maybe even more.
Providore Cebu being of an American cuisine as well, of course we loved up our day by gorging their bacon, sunny side up egg, fried potatoes, and pork and beans! Indeed, not only a good morning for us, but a great one, no doubt.
Being at providore already, we are not to pass up on the opportunity to gobble down a trademark dish of theirs, the Ube Champorado! This one is so scrumptious that it is has become popular here in Cebu as well and that households prefer to cook it over the classic chocolate one.
