The Filipino diaspora is certainly a massive phenomenon that has impacted millions of lives all over the world. For the longest time now, food critics and foodies have been beaming over the possibilities offered by Filipino food with some dubbing it as the next great international trend. Undoubtedly, it seems that day is now upon us.

Now, the city of Chicago is all the better for it with the opening of a new chill spot in the center of it. We are of course talking about Cebu. It is that new Filipino place just over in Wicker Park. At first glance, you get the place’s overall vibe, relaxed and welcoming. Plus, there is that back patio serves as a perfect hangout spot now.

Of course, a restaurant is nothing if it doesn’t serve great food. Luckily, Cebu delivers in this front as well. It has a number of must-try dishes including classics like Lechon and Chicken Adobo. Of course, if you are trying to sample some of the deep cuts in Filipino cuisine, we highly recommend that you try the kinilaw and the sisig.
