The restaurant industry in the Queen City of the South has grown by leaps and bounds in the past decade of so with the increasing population in the city. Major fast food brands like McDonald’s, Jollibee and Burger King along with home-grown companies like Orange Brutus are competing to sate the discriminating taste buds of Cebuanos. But, before these quick service restaurants started to sprout like mushrooms around the city there was Snowsheen Restaurant.
Longtime residents of Cebu have some fond memories of Snowsheen Restaurant. It was one of the places where people would go to for a special family gathering. As a restaurant serving Chinese food, one can find different types of Chinese dishes aimed at tickling the taste buds of Cebuanos. People would look forward to the trip to the restaurant to get a taste of their pancit canton. On the other hand, others would drop by Snowsheen Restaurant for their pancit lomi.
The food items at the restaurant are what make people keep coming back for more. While the overall ambiance of the restaurant may need a major renovation, it still continues to attract the attention of diners wanting to find a place to eat. Located along Osmeña Boulevard, Snowsheen Restaurant is within walking distance from the commercial district of the city.
The prices of the menu items at the restaurant are comparable to the items found in major fast food restaurants in the metropolis. The pancit canton, which is considered the best in the city, is priced at PHP 105 while the pancit lomi is priced at PHP 85. The place also offers chop suey, patotem with asparagus (duck with asparagus), and bird’s nest soup with quail egg.
Being the center of trade, industry and education in the Visayas area, the Queen City of the South is home to a number of business establishments catering to the different needs of the residents. Even as many of the residents prefer eating at quick service restaurants in the city, there are some long-time Cebu residents who prefer dropping by established restaurants like the Snowsheen Restaurant .
