Lantaw Native Restaurant (Cebu City)
When we where in Cordova we were supposed to eat at Lantaw but never got to. This time we decided to try Lantaw in Busay.
Lantaw is located in the Mountains of Busay. It is quite far from Downtown Cebu and you will need to negotiate with a Taxi driver to go here if you do not have a car.
When you reach Lantaw, the view of Cebu City, Mactan, Olango and Bohol will greet you. It is a sight to behold. At night the view will turn to a sea of lights. It is best to go here around 5pm when you can see Cebu City, Mactan, Olango and Bohol and wait for nightfall.
When we arrived, we seated ourselves and it wasnt for a few minutes before we were given the Menu. We ordered the following, Grilled Tuna Belly, Kilawin, Utan Bisaya, Chorizo and Buko Shake.
Grilled Tuna Belly - i doubt if it was fresh because it did not taste fresh. It was rather fishy to my taste. Disappointing.
Kilawin - Different from the kilawin i am used to. They used gata. Disappointed also with this.
Utan - Similar to Laswa. But Their version lacks flavor.
Buko Shake - Delicious. Something i enjoyed.
Overall, the food was so so but the ambience was just spectacular but would not consider eating at Lantaw again just for the food. There are better places with better food in Cebu.
