Pork Spare Ribs With Kimto Sauce

All of us experience break-ups. We avoid it like how a goat distances itself from water. In trying to avoid this unavoidable thing, some people treat their partner like royalty by doing everything their partner wants them to do. Some impress their partner with the profession of their undying love by making a video and post it in YouTube. Some cool people however just keep it plain and simple by chaining their partners to the bed rail and keep them drugged.

A break-up is emotionally draining but no matter how much it hurts, it still has its good side because as the cliché goes, everything happens for a reason. Maybe because he/she was not the right one for you or maybe you're bound to grow old living with cats.

If you recently have a break-up, stop crying and eat out. Yes, eating is the best therapy during break-ups because in this world, only good food gives out true love.

Fish Fillet Ala Munier

The best restaurant to visit for a massive foodfest will be UNO Restaurant at the Waterfront Grand Hotel & Casino in Lahug. Whatever reason it may be, from break-ups to celebrations, UNO Restaurant is guaranteed to offer the best comfort food for you.

Texan Pork Spare Ribs

These are the popular excuses when you are being dumped and why UNO loves you more than your partner:

Excuse #1: "I just need some space"

In UNO, the chefs will never ask for space as they make sure that you are filled with great food made by the finest culinary experts. Their Texan Pork Spare Ribs is truly mind-blowing. The taste of the pork elopes well with the flavors added and the way it is grilled is beyond expert. This can definitely pass for authentic country-style dish. Meat is very tender and the taste of the dish is so spectacular, you will never have enough space in your stomach.

Sauerbraten With Spaetzel

Excuse #2: "You just don't understand me"

Understanding people is hard because everyone is unique. Even you will not understand UNO. You will never understand the good feeling of eating great food offered. Their Sauerbraten with Spaetzel will leave you in a state of shock as you will never understand how such light flavors mix well with a chunk of meat. Sauerbraten is often paired with boiled potatoes or served with red cabbage but the Spaetzel converted this ensemble into a dish for the kings. With the flavors of the meat and the Spaetzel, the hint of milk and cheese really come out and plays with your tongue. This is one of the best contributions Germany has given out for the world and simply, just my personal favorite.

Chicken Cordon Bleu

Hainanese Chicken With Condiments

Excuse #3: "It's not you, it's me"

Liar. Of course it's you. You are the reason why your partner is breaking up with you. Maybe he/she found another person who spends more time in the real world than the internet super stud which is you. UNO does not have a problem with that because you and your happiness are always the priority. UNO's Chicken Cordon Bleu is the best Chicken Cordon Bleu that I ever had. The texture was very good and the melted cheese was not all over the dish. Another delightful dish is their Hainanese Chicken with Condiments. What I love about UNO's Hainanese Chicken is that, it is prepared in traditional Hainanese method which is to boil the chicken in a pork and chicken bone stock. The condiments are also there to give more flavor and helps the chicken attain its tremendous taste.

Lo Han Chai (Buddha's Delight)

Braised Beancurd With Shrimp

Excuse #4: "I love you in the way I love Jesus"

Okay, you are being placed back to the dreaded friends' zone. It does not matter though because UNO can accommodate everyone in your new zone. With their wide array and impressive arsenal of great cuisines from the world, you and your love ones will surely receive love in different languages through food. For vegetable lovers, UNO's Lo Han Chai (Buddha's Delight) has the very essence of the tradition of vegetaranism being practiced in Chinese temples. The mild flavor of the dish is really pleasant and heavenly. Another healthy dish is their Braised Beancurd with Shrimp. Tofu lovers will surely love this as the tofu is so soft that you do not even have to chew it. The way it melts in your mouth along with the natural flavor of the shrimp gives you comfort.

Dimsum Station

Sushi Corner

Excuse #5: "You've changed"

We all do. If your partner can't deal with that, UNO can. As the only constant thing about this world is change, UNO serves different types of dish everyday. They have a fixed menu but they will of course, change their lineup because no one loves a boring buffet. You can check out the sushi and maki corner, their dimsum section, grill area and a lot more. Their pastries are explosive. Mango crepe is always fresh from the pan and never forget to try their cheesecake. Their cheesecake just spells incredible. You can even tell that the texture of the cheesecake is orgasmic. It's the best cheesecake I have ever tasted as of late.

Some of the treats from their Pastry Section

There are a lot of excuses to break up with someone. Whatever the reason it may be, you will always have your friends to back you up. Not only that, there is also great food ready to help you cope up with the drama.

UNO is one restaurant that you should check out. It would be best if you share the experience with your loved ones and with great food, you will be able to feel that the world does not hate you at all. And before you know it, you will again feel nauseous and tingly all over. Which means, you are either in love or you just have smallpox.

UNO is located at the Gourmet Walk of Waterfront Cebu Hotel and Casino Lahug Cebu City. Buffet is at P850.00 per head. Operating hours: 5:30 AM - 10:30 PM A la carte menu available 5:30 AM – 10: 30 AM (Breakfast Buffet) 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM (Lunch Buffet) 6:00 PM – 10:30 PM (Dinner Buffet)
