Recently, Manggahan Restaurant at 30 Wilson Street, Lahug, Cebu City, Philippines advertised on radio that they will be offering unlimited barbecue at lunch everyday. So when I had the chance, I went there to check it out. I went on a Wednesday and just as I expected, there weren't too many people around. The restaurant opened at 10:00 a.m. and I was the first person to come in. By the time I left at around 11:30 a.m., there were only 3 other sets of customers.

Unlimited BBQ at Manggahan Restaurant in Cebu
Manggahan's unlimited barbecue lunch features pork barbecue, chorizo, chicken skin, chicken tinae (intestine), and chicken barbecue. The unlimited barbecue does not come with rice and drinks. Rice and drinks are sold separately. Of course, Filipino as I am, I had to order unlimited rice to go with the barbecue. I could have settled for service water too but decided anyway to order the bottomless house blend iced tea.

For my first serving, I ordered 1 chicken barbecue, 2 sticks of pork barbecue, and 1 stick of barbecued chicken skin. I wanted to order the chicken tinae as well, but they were out of stock at that time. After I devoured that first serving, I ordered another set of 5 sticks of pork barbecue, 3 sticks of barbecued chicken skin, and 2 sticks of chorizo. I could have ordered more but I was in a hurry to go home to catch the basketball game between the Philippines and Palestine in the 2015 FIBA Asia Championships at Changsha, Hunan Province, China. I hoped they showed it at Manggahan, but the television set at the place was broken and has not been repaired for quite some time now.
