These past days, one of our simple joys was on the verge of being extinct: A bill was proposed banning the unli-rice in restaurants, and for Filipinos, it was like cutting one’s happiness.
But days after the controversial bill went out, the proponent backed out and didn’t pursue the bill anymore. And everyone rejoiced, so to celebrate that groundbreaking decision here are some of the restaurants where you can enjoy all the rice you want:
- Mang Inasal
Mang Inasal, undeniably the restaurant that reigns when it comes to the unli-rice scene. There off the grill chicken and barbecue perfectly compliment with their sauces, the reasons why it’s the top pick of diners who wish to carbo load. And also you should never miss their halo-halo, the perfect dessert after a rice-full of feast.
Hukad, a Cebu-hailed restaurant, known for its Lechon de Cebu, Crispy Pata and Seafood dishes. What’s good in Hukad is that it offers unlimited rice which is best for savoring a piece of Lechon de Cebu as its flavors linger on your taste buds.
