"Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience."

This was how it started. We could only try Tuslob Buwa on the streets. But waaiit, there's new!
The innovative minds of Filipinos will never come to an end. Another food trip destination that can be enjoyed by the adventurous foodies, Azul Cebu: Tuslob Buwa Experience. It is located right next to InkinIan Tattoo which is along the streets of Asilo, Gorordo Avenue (between Yamaha and Aerophone). If you are going downtown, it's on your right. They are open from Monday to Sunday: 10:00 A.M. - 7:00 A.M.

Tuslob Buwa is one of Cebu's exotic street foods. These two words coined together literally means "tuslob" = "to dip" and "buwa" = "bubbles". To dip into bubbles. It's quite common among the working class and some students because of it's affordability which can really satiate one's hunger. However, it may pose health risks (especially those found on the streets) because you share your dip with other people (you may refer to first picture). In spite of that, this is still a hit among Cebuanos. That's why when Azul offered this new experience alongside their convenience and liquor store, many people were are rushing to this place.

So, allow me to start my First-Ever Tuslob Buwa Chronicles.

The Place.

Azul means BLUE. That explains the ambiance.
One Set @ PHP 99
Shrimps, Liver, Onions, Pig's Brain, Hanging Rice (12 pcs.)

It's like our own version of Shabu-shabu, right?
You have your own burner and wok so sanitation is really a check.
How to enjoy your Tuslob Buwa?
1. Heat oil.
2. Sauté onions.
3. Add the shrimps and liver.
4. Then, the pig's brain! (read the zombie way, please... LOL)
5. Add soy sauce to taste.
*add a bit of Coke (optional)
I don't know but it tasted good, or it was just our crazy tongues? HAHA
6. Bring to a boil. Wait for the bubbles.
And, voila! You can now start dipping your hanging rice :)

It was really a good experience. I always wanted to try Tuslob Buwa but I couldn't bring myself to do it. I am just so glad that Azul came up with this idea. Not just that, they also serve other Filipino favorites like sisig, siomai, kropek, etc. You can definitely chill and have good vibes in this place. One more set, please! :)

Till next post, lovies. Ciao!
