The ngohiong is Cebu’s version of the Chinese spring roll. It is similar to the lumpia, but is bigger and crunchier. The filling is made of ubod, singkamas, onions, and garlic, among others. The ngohiong can be found in Chinese restaurants, eateries, and hawker-style stalls all over Cebu. It is cheap and filling. This dish is typically paired with the Cebuano puso or hanging rice.
Similar to Doming’s, the Chinese Ngohiong along Junquera Street is a simple hole-in-the-wall eatery that does not look like much. But the place is typically packed during lunchtime. It is one of the most affordable meal options for students and office workers in the area.
Chinese is located right across the Philippine Christian Gospel School (PGS) along Junquera Street. Jeepneys with route numbers 04C, 17C, and 14D pass right in front of the store. If you are not familiar with the place, just tell the driver to let you off at PCGS.
