It has always been part of my trip to every city or province I visit is to try popular and unknown restaurants. Be able to try different variations of food choices from local to international cuisine. JL (a Cebu Blogger of has been my life saver as she was able to introduce me to the owner of Meximama – Chef Dennis. He is passionate about cooking and reinventing great dishes from local Filipino food to Asian cuisine and even Mexican cuisine. He used to work in Maribago as an Executive Chef and after some time he eventually opened his own restaurant – Meximama.

Meximama comes from a 3 word – Mexi (Mexican), Ma (his mom) and Ma (his grandmother). Mexican cuisine uses a lot of chilies and this makes the cuisine distinct and unique. What I love about Meximama it that they use chilies imported from the USA and they make their nachos, tacos and all their dips and sauces are from scratch.

Here are my top 7 Meximama must-try dishes: 

7. Churros Con Chocolate – Php 95.00 / USD 2.00


6. Tres Leches Flan – Php 95 / USD 2.00

5. Nachos with 3 kinds of cheese

2. Soft Taco Beef – Php 185.00 / USD 4.00

1.Nachos En Salsa Roja – Php 125.00 / USD 3.00

All these Mexican goodness cuisines are delectable and how I wish Chef Dennis will open a branch here in Manila. I can’t wait to go back to Cebu just to dine here again.
