Munch On Comfort Food at Isidra

I joined other volunteer organizers of the Cebu Blogging Summit 2015 for a post-event dinner at Isidra Comfort Cantina last 12 December 2015. Isidra Comfort Cantina was one of our sponsors for the Cebu Blogging Summit 2.0 held at the Cebu Century Plaza Hotel. During dinner, we sampled the a la carte menu of Isidra Comfort Cantina.

So what did we have for dinner at Isidra Comfort Cantina? Isidra Comfort Cantina serves mostly our favorite Filipino comfort foods. 


For appetizers we ordered eggplant chips, stir-fried tofu, tokwa't baboy, spicy sisig, and deep fried maskara. The eggplant chips were surprisingly delicious. Only the spicy sisig didn't taste special for me but it was okay.

Main Entreés 

Romeo of Zuprome ordered the grilled pork belly, Mel of Fueled by Caffeine ordered gambaretti pasta. Other orders were bagnet and pork steak. Everything was good.

Tausug Delicacies 

One interesting section of the Isidra menu lists Tausug dishes, which have obvious Malaysian influences. These Tausug dishes are Chicken Satti, Beef Satti, and Blackened Chicken. These dishes are on the spicy side of things. They are all good.

The desserts at Isidra are heavenly. Or I just love sweets no matter what. We ordered a meringue-based dessert and mango float. Everybody loved it.
