Cebu Ocean Park recently opened and we got to explore it and be one of the firsts to actually try out their center of interaction wherein we got to interact with the different creatures they have. Anyway, as we got to explore it for an hour or so, we got a tad bit tired, hence we were glad that at the end of our tour, we were welcomed by their very own Gusto Food Hall.
Gusto Food Hall is a spacious dining space that is a part of Cebu Ocean Park highlighting Asian cuisine, so you bet you are to enjoy a variance of Thai, Singaporean, Malaysian dishes, among others!
You know what, the first dish we got try here at Gusto Food Hall, quickly snatched our hearts and got us more excited to try out their other dishes! Their Thai Style Homemade Tofu is such a lovely way to start our food exploration here at Gusto Food Hall – we loved its hint of spice in every bite.
Next to that, we dug into a veggie dish of theirs which was their Fried Eggplant with Fermented Bean Paste. If you adore eggplants, you sure will enjoy this dish that is an authentic Chinese food, just like we did.
After having a few appetizers, Laksa was the first heavy one we got to take a moment with. It was such a creamy and delicious dish that gave us that slurp action we can’t deny how much we love.
If you are looking for a heavier option, you are not going to make a wrong decision by going for Gusto Food Hall’s Hongkong Roasting Platter that comes with tasty Hainanese Rice! This one will really satisfy your cravings and will sure hype you up for more, too, because this is a plate of roasted pork asado, chashu pork, soy chicken, and barbecue pork.
As we have finally started with their mains, don’t dare stop and just grab another dish which is none other than their Nonya Chicken Curry. This one just gives off that much-loved punch of spice that we just can’t get enough off, so if you are a lover of curry, this one is a great dish for you, especially that Gusto Food Hall makes their own curry from scratch.
More into their yummy offerings, Gusto Food Hall’s Asam Fish is a saucy dish that is made with Indonesian spice, sour tamarind, as well as ginger flower, giving you that delectable blend of spice and sourness in every mouthful.
And for the final wapow, the the bomb dish that we had here at Gusto Food Hall – their Singaporean Chili Crab is our ultimate favorite! This one is a native crab from Singapore with the playful tones of spicy, sweet, and sour. Such an adventure for our taste buds, we tell you!
With a lot of savories and spices that we truly enjoyed here at Gusto Food Hall, we also tried their healthy Asian desserts that are their Cendol with Shaved Ice as well as their Eight Fresh Dessert. These refreshing desserts are both milky and creamy and just packed with the right tease of sweetness.
To help us gobble and gulp down all these dishes that we had, their Lemongrass Iced Tea and their Hawthorn-Roselle Tea are both revitalizing healthy drinks that would give you that surge of energy and freshness just like it did to us.
Gusto Food Hall of Cebu Ocean Park really has a bounty of different goodies to munch on, to dig into, and to even devour, so don’t worry if you are all exhausted from all the walking and the interacting, because Gusto Food Hall is just waiting for you at the end of the hall. There really is a treasure at the end of the rainbow!
