Are you a fan of Mediterranean cuisine, Greek food, and Italian favorites? Wasted Chef Restaurant just opened up along Gorordo Avenue across the Asilo dela Milagrosa Church in barangay Kamputhaw, Cebu City, Philippines. The house specialties are the Greek pita burger, shawarma, a couple of pasta dishes, and a couple more pizza varieties.

Wasted Chef Restaurant in Cebu City, PhilippinesOwned by Powerspoonz band's resident drummer Ian Sekong and his skater boy friends, Wasted Chef was not their original plan. They would have wanted to open a seafood buffet restaurant. When they were still looking for a suitable location for their project, the space across the Asilo dela Milagrosa became available, in the same business complex where Ian's Azul Tuslob Buwa venture was also located. It was however not suitable for a seafood buffet place. So they tweaked their plans and came up with the concept of offering a buffet for Mediterranean, Greek, and Italian food. This was also something new in Cebu.

Ian and his partners personally run Wasted Chef, from preparing the dough, wraps, buns, patties, and pasta to doing waiter chores and cleaning up. Heck even in marketing and all else that needs to be done. With the business partners personally running the business and doing so with great teamwork, guests can only be assured of the highest quality service and delicious food.
It's true there are just too many pizza joints in Cebu City already. But when you are looking for pizza with a crunchy, good smelling dough, the pizza selections at Wasted Chef may just pleasantly surprise you. Try their tomato sauce pizza and their pesto pizza.

Pesto pasta and Filipino-style pasta is also served at Wasted Chef. I say it's worth a try.

One of my friends say the shawarma at Wasted Chef is one of the best he's ever had in Cebu, something he says he got his money's worth with. It is imperative that when you are at Wasted Chef, you must try their shawarma or gyros. It's only PhP 60 too, very affordable.
Greek Pita Burgers
The Greek burgers at Wasted Chef utilizes pita bread as bun and arranged in the following order: pita bun, Greek sauce, lettuce, pure beef patty, cucumber slices, red onions sliced as rings, tomato slices, barbecue sauce and the other half of the pita bun. You may add in the hot sauce if you want your burger spicy.

Trust me, this burger is truly filling. That should come as no surprise as their patty has no extenders. It's really just plain pure ground beef. Selling at PhP 80, this one is my personal favorite.
All You Can Eat Pizza, Pasta, Burgers, and Shawarma
