#CebuFoodCrawl 2017 with Sun Cellular

Decdember of last year, I got invited by Sun Cellular to fly to Cebu to cover and experience the annual #CebuFoodCrawl! I love Cebu and I love eating, so I said yes in a heartbeat. Even if I was just there a month before. Haha. I will never say no to a free trip & free food. Bonus pa that I was going with my gf Anagon! :) It was a fun 3 days of gastronomic adventure and making friends. Here are photos of all the food we consumed and all the restaurants we visited. Try not to drool! :)

Upon arrival in Cebu, we checked in at Quest Hotel first and rested for a bit before heading to our first stop...

 Back at my favorite-- QUEST HOTEL!

Take a seat in their cozy leather sofas and take in amazing live performances by fire-poi entertainers or simply lounge around and witness the DJ rounding up beats all throughout the evening.

The venue offers more than just breathtaking views but an experience on its own with the architecture carefully developed to embrace the natural beauty and charm of the beachfront location with its open concept design. The place features an Asian Grill restaurant with day and night menus, beach lounge area and a rock bar by the cliff for a perfect sundown cocktail and night cap.
