Some good places to eat in Cebu are hidden from plain sight or are situated in rather peculiar corners. Aside from the fact that they are not easily found and where not many public utility vehicles ply a route, one gets to ask whether it is worth the trouble to even get there. I found myself dining in one of these curiously hidden places in late May 2016. It was an unplanned lunch date with fellow bloggers who were members of the Cebu Blogging Community. With me were Jullian, Jeane Louise, and Carlo.

Chorizo Sautéed Squid
I am used to have my squid adobo by itself. But the sautéed squid at Acacia Steakhouse doesn't just have squid in it. The twist is that squid is sautéed with Spanish chorizo. Quite a peculiar proposition but a surprisingly pleasant experience. A serving that is good for 3-4 persons costs PhP 190.
