CEBU CITY, CEBU – You have probably tried the different versions of pochero from different provinces but I bet it is only in Cebu where you can enjoy this dish not on a bowl but on a sizzling platter.
Cebuanos have again proven their culinary innovativeness with the “Sizzling Pochero” served by Abuhan Restaurant.
This dish is actually derived from the traditional bulalo popularized by the Batanguenos but with a uniquedifference.
The sizzling pochero served in Abuhan Restaurant can either be pork or beef. The smell of the dish alone is enough to make you salivate, but the presentation is another story.
Drizzled all over with butter-mushroom gravy (and some extra cup of gravy if you wish) and fried potatoes for sidings, it’s a meal that you’ll want to devour in an instant.
Melo Villareal of PinoyFoodCravings.com wrote that someone who is conscious about his or her diet would have to give in to the dish’s buttery goodness and just plan out a heavy exercise after the meal.
B’ley of Blogalag.com wrote of how perfectly the gravy complemented the savory flavors of the sizzling beef pochero. He added that the meat was so tender, that it fell right off the bones.
For a price of P190 to P355 (prices vary depending on size of meat), the sizzling pochero might come off as a deal breaker for frugal diners but for Micaela Rodriguez of Pataygutom.com, the price becomes irrelevant with the restaurant’s generous servings and cleanliness of the place.
The next time you’re in Cebu and you feel like eating something different, Abuhan Restaurant is the place to be.
