Abuhan Dos

Native Filipino restaurants are all over Cebu. We have an A-Team when it comes to native restaurants and every one of them specialize on something. One of the elite Filipino restaurants in Cebu is the legendary Abuhan Restaurant. Their old Filipino cooking style has been mesmerizing the Cebuanos for 25 years already and they strive to continue by opening more branches.

Abuhan is the home of the best Pochero (Beef Shank) in Cebu. My girlfriend from Manila says it is Bulalo, not Pochero. But for Cebuanos, it is Pochero and this is the only way to cook Pochero. And since it's my treat, I win.

Classic Pochero

Abuhan gives you 2 choices on how your Pochero will be served. The first one is the classic Pochero. Classic style Pochero consist of cabbage, baguio beans, corn, bamboo shoots and beef. Don't get fooled by the minimal ingredients though, Abuhan's pochero is so eatable. The meat is well prepared that you can pull the bone off from the meat by just picking it up. Like sweat from Angel Locsin's cleavage, the meat just slides down as you pull the bone. Now that's sexy. This classic Pochero is devastatingly delicious.

The second choice is their unique, Sizzling Pochero. The Sizzling Pochero is all meat, no fillers; it is like Megan Fox wearing white shirt and denims. This heavenly thing gives me orgasms the first time I tasted it. The taste of the gravy does not fight with the flavor of the meat. Believe me when I tell you (at least in this food blog), the level of greatness is off the charts with this dish.

Another thing with Abuhan's Pochero is that, it doesn't come in small sizes. You can have their medium size or large size of the Pochero. Being confident enough that we can annihilate the famous pochero, Bans and I ordered the large one.

And then we failed.

Please put a note on yourself that Abuhan's large size pochero is good for 3-4 persons. But if you really are into gluttony, you can have the large one and in case you just can't shove any more meat in your mouth, the waiters are always willing to wrap it up for you so you can bring the pochero home.

Abuhan does not only offer pochero though. Their other specialties are Calderetang Kambing, Kare-kare, Crispy Pata, and Sizzling Squid.

If you get addicted to their Pochero, you know who to blame.

And I am sure it is not the a-a-a-a-a-alcohol.
