We review Ekits Food Haus located in Mabolo, Cebu City
Today we review Ekits Food Haus in Mabolo, Cebu City. This is a hidden gem located a short walk from One Oasis where we live at the moment while waiting for my operation.
The place are like most other local eateries in the terms of looks, but when it comes to the food served, it is usually a bit bigger portions.
They open for lunch and keep open until they run out of food, as I understand it. They also have street food and hot cake station outside. In the evening they have an outside street barbeque.
The price is above average for Philippine eateries, but it is still worth a visit because of their Pochero. I can tell you guys right now, this beef soup is excellent and totally worth the visit.
The rest of their food is average in quality and can be had cheaper and sometimes better at other locations, but what you will be here for is the Pochero. I have never been inside that place without it being full of guests eating pochero.
If you go here to eat you get a genuine Philippine food experience and if you order the pochero you will be very satisfied with the food.
Of all the food I have eaten there I have been disappointed exactly three times. Octopus overcooked so it was too chewy to eat. One papaya salad gone wrong in the making and lastly the cop suey I had that you can see in this video. All other meals have been good.
Their hot cake station is great. Where I am from we call them pancakes. They are served with butter and sugar. 10 PHP each.
Their barbecue is on par with most other places when it comes to taste. A bit higher price than most other barbecue places, but not by much.
The Pochero is why you come here. It is 100 PHP and I find that very good price for something that taste so freaking good.
The staff is hard working and attentive despite always being full of guests. Very impressive.
To sum it up, the hot cakes and the pochero are awesome. The rest is a bit overpriced and can be had as good or better for a lower price other places.
The full address is Tandang Sora St cor Magsaysay St Villa Aurora, Cebu City, 6000 Cebu.

The dice says:
If it were only for the pochero and hotcakes, it would have been a strong five. What draws the dice down is the overall price of their food and overall quality of the rest of the food served. Without the Pochero it would have been a three. The pochero is so good it warrant a higher roll with the dice by that one dish alone.
