Zup peehgs? With guests from outside Cebu and the day of hearts, and friends have been pigging out around Cebu for the past weeks, gaining some extra pounds in the process. hehe. Well we, the peehgs, have decided to dine at Simply J’s  Cafe in Escario. For some it might be tricky to find this restaurant because there’s no sign or awning. It’s the restaurant beside Diamond Hotel. 🙂

Simply J's Cafe

Getting inside, you’d get that warm and country feel, very homey and accommodating.  And yeah you would notice there are price tags on the chairs, the tables, frames, lamps and everything, except the utensils and waiters of course. We started the meal with an appetizer.

Tortilla Chips with Dip

Tortilla chips served with salsa or cheese dip. priced at 130php. Well, the salsa tasted like it isn’t fresh, just like those dips you can pick up from the grocery counters.

Taco Salad

Following the Mexican craving is the Tortilla Salad. Lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, seasoned ground beef with taco chips and taco dressing. Price is at 150php. Fresh greens drizzled with over- the- counter- tasting taco dressing.


Layered Lasagna Pasta with white cream sauce and tomato meat sauce. Price: 150php

Chef's Signature baby back ribs

Chef’s Signature baby back ribs priced at 190php. Grilled baby back ribs brushed with honey mustard sauce. Personally, it tasted dry we have to ask for extra honey mustard sauce and the meat is not that tender too.

Salsa Cream Dory

The Salsa Cream Dory, I definitely enjoyed! Fish fillet pan-fried topped with tomato and herb salsa. Price: 160php. Soft velvety fish fillet infused with light herby flavors! Yum!

Guava Lemon Cooler

Refreshing Guava and Lemon drink for 30php.
