Examples of these are tourists spots specifically beautiful beaches and of course, our mouthwatering foods and desserts – to which this blog is focused on Like, before the COVID-19 pandemic many visitors from different countries travelled to my city. They have tasted Cebu’s popular foods and delicacies and they have liked all of these. Cebuanos – which refers to people, who are born and have lived in Cebu for a long time, really love oily, and a little salty main courses and of course, colorful and sweet desserts. An example of a little oily and salty delicacy which is popular in Cebu is called, “CHICHARON” it is a kind of pork that is deep fried and is carefully dried before packing and selling.( Oh!

I am certain that most visitors who visited in Cebu brought packs of chicharon to their respective countries.

It is best served during summer months and finally, the dessert that is loved my many people in the world is also special in my city and that is called “MILK TEA”. It is a little expensive for us.
