Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Filipino love to eat rice and most of my readers will agree to that unless you’re into diet which you will limit your rice intake to your body but otherwise most of the Pinoy love to eat rice. I posted several restaurant which offer unlimited rice to their local and foreign customers like Boosog Restaurant, Mang Inasal.

Every Filipino all around the world would love to eat a “lutong-bahay” foods from Adobo, Sinigang (pork and chicken), any vegetables foods. Wherever they will go, Filipino will always crave for a “lutong-bahay” recipes and nobody will argue with that.

Craving for a “lutong-bahay” recipes/food? Or looking for an unlimited rice in restaurant? Looking for a accessible restaurant near your area? Hmmm.. Why not in Hukad sa Golden Cowrie Restaurant?

Hukad sa Golden Cowrie Restaurant is very accessible in major malls in Cebu City and to mention are Ayala Center Cebu and SM Seaside City Cebu but they also have other branches such as in Parkmall  in Mandaue City, South Town Centre in Tabunok, Talisay City.

Why I would recommend and not to miss Hukad sa Golden Cowrie Restaurant? I listed some reasons why I want to dine-in in Hukad sa Golden Cowrie Restaurant with my family, friends or colleagues.

  1. Lutong-Bahay foods

    – It’s good to eat the native Lutong-Bahay foods such as Sinigang (chicken or pork), Ginisang Talong, and any other lutong-bahay foods listed on their menus. I love the way they maintain their menus to Lutong-Bahay. Though, they still offer specialized food like Calamares, Sisig which I believe it’s not the typical lutong-bahay.
  2. Unlimited Rice

    – Most of the restaurant offers unlimited rice to their customers are more patok especially to Pinoy like Mang Inasal which I recently posted few days ago. Again, Filipino will still crave a rice on their cheat day of diet week. 🙂 Did that? hahaha.. That’s why Mang Inasal also patok to Pinoy and the one reason why you should try Hukad sa Golden Cowrie Restaurant.

  3. Service Crew/Managers

    I seldom experience to ask how is my experience on their food and restaurant? Which give them a point in this matter? It’s like they care their customers how’s their experience on what they eat. Isn’t cool? It’s like your girlfriend/boyfriend ask you if how are you. Haha.. (Hugot: “Mabuti pa ang manager sa Hukad, may pakialam sa akin, ikaw kailan pa?“). Translation to english is still in negotiation. 😀

  4. Ambiance

    – I love the place and the ambiance of the restaurant. The light they use is not really so bright and not so dim. It’s a balance of the place.

That’s maybe the reason why almost everytime I pass by in Hukad sa Golden Cowrie Restaurant is always first come, first serve policy. Because of the limited space in mall, hope they will have their own space where they can expand right away depend on the customers.

  1. I have a not-so good experience in Golden Cowrie Ayala but that was yearssss ago and I guess I have forgiven them for it but apparently have never forgotten. Lol. I haven’t dined in GC ever since but I have tried their sister company which is Salinas and the food was really impressive.

      Oh! maybe it’s the management who handled it.. but I was shock that their waiter/waitress plus the manager smile to us and ask if how’s our experience..

  2. It’s a staple for Filipinos. Rice has always been a part of our lives even before the era of colonization. It was even a kind of currency before. It used to be traded with livestock and even fixtures. Well, food now is more than of a commodity than currency.

    Yep, rice is staple both in meals and in our history as people of this archipelago.

  3. Overall, the place is pretty okay. Good food and all, but as with some of the others, I’ve had a not-so-good experience eating at the place before hand. Hope they get a handle on the situation though.

  4. Hukad is one of my favorite Filipino restaurants. Ang ila monggos mahal kaayo pero perting lamia. 😀

  5. Maypa ang Manager hugot nailed it! Hahahahaha! I haven’t tried Golden Cowrie because I’m not really fond of restaurants. Maybe soon if my friends would bring me there, why not? I get discouraged man gud at Ayala because of there are so many people having their line. Hehe

    • laagtabaicom Reply kaayog linya.. but we’re lucky nga pag.abot.. na.entertain daun mi. 🙂

  6. My Hukad experience is wonderful! Lami kaayo ang ilang food and I guess most of the times nga mokaon ko dira kay naay celebration ug wala koy gasto. I love it! 😀
