I was recently in Dumaguete City towitness the Buglasan festival. Coincidentally I was also invited by Malu and Lynette drop by at Chibog one of the newer fastfood centers that opened its d doors in the City of Gentle People.
I arrived in Dumaguete City just a few minutes past two in he afternoon i was greeted by Marc at the Ceres Terminal. From the bus terminsl we headed towards Santa Catalina street to get a quick glimpse of chibog and some refreshments.
A few minutes later we're headed to the streets to ctch the Buglasan streetdancing competition.
The parade has already started when we arrived at the ciyy street. We got to see snippets of performsnces from Dumaguete Tanjay, Bais, San Jose and Santa Catalina not bad at all.
By nighttime we went back to chibog for dinner and some chitchat.
Chibog is barely new to the city. It only opened last June 2014 and since then has continuoulsy served hot off the grill value for your money meals
I love the artsy orsnge colored high ceiling. It gives you na impression of a relaxed and comfotable dining experience. Upon checking the menu I noticed that everything comes at a very reasonable price. Since this is going to be my first time to sample the dishes I did 't have much any expectation. For dinner I ordered baby baxk ribs. My companion got a plate of sisig marc also got boneless lechon for us!
Surpruse surprise! The back ribs is so tender and oozing with yummy flavors. The meat is so soft you can just easily remove it off its bone with a fork. It's so heavenly I am reminded of a popular restaurant in Cebu that also offers back ribs. Amd at P170 with unli it's the biggest hit in town! Their lechon is kinda weird too. Instead of thr liver sauce or soysauce one has to dipped small chunks of lechon in sweet spicy bagoong to more kick. Since i do not eat bagoong and spicy foods i opted not to dip it in the sauce.
But their lechon has its distinct characteristics . Its fat is so tender it easily melts in your mouth. And has a subtle flavor too. Thats thats why the bagoong complements well wiht the lechon.
We capped our dinner with na authentic Budbod kabog from Tanjay served with rich hot chocolste on the side.
Budbod kabog is millet cooked on coconut leaves best when eaten with chocolate. I also learned that their super rich hot chocolate is sourced locally. You can actuslly taste the distinct bitter taste of cacao and the rough texture of the beans. Definitely a must try!
Other dishes I got to sample during my 3day2night stay in Dumaguete are their version of grilled liempo leche flan and halo halo. their version of halo halo is not too sweet with lots of milk on it. The grilled liempo is very well marinted it was cooked tender and juicy. The fats melts in your mouth too!
Chibog is definitely a big hit among the discriminting taste of Dumagueteños. Their affordable and great tasting meals are their rcip to success. Little by little Chibog is going to rule Dumaguete and soon enough its nearby province of Negros Occidental!
