Cebuanos are food lovers and this is evident in the number of restaurants in and around the city. These restaurants offer different cuisines aimed at satisfying the discriminating taste of Cebuanos. There are some restaurants offering some of the best-loved food items of Cebuanos. One of these food items is the pochero, which is appropriate during this time of the year when nights are colder.
Muvanz Pocherohan and Seafoods is a relatively new entry into the food scene of the Queen City of the South. Its main branch is located at the Century Plaza Complex along Juana Osmeña Street. While the place offers a good number of food items on their menu, its bestsellers are their squid, scallops and, of course, pochero.
The serving of the pochero at Muvanz is good enough for two people. While it is not as big as the one served at Marjo’s or Abuhan, it has a somewhat thick consistency and is well-seasoned. The pochero is a well-loved Filipino dish that originated from Spain. Aside from the Philippines, the stew is also prepared in Colombia, Uruguay, Paraguay and Argentina. It is a version of the cocino of Spain and the name comes from the Spanish word “puchero” or stewpot.
Aside from the pochero, scallops and squid, Muvanz also offers other dishes including fish tinola, adobong nokos, calamares, sizzling beef, and lechon kawali, among others. The price of their pochero is PHP 130 per serving while the sizzling squid is at PHP 80 for the small serving and PHP 160 for the large serving. On the other hand, the scallops are priced at PHP 120. Muvanz also has another branch at the Alfresco of Mactan Newtown.
Muvanz Pocherohan and Seafoods is definitely one place visitors to the Queen City of the South should drop by if they want to tickle their taste buds at a reasonable price.
