Long before the coming of the Spaniards, the Chinese have already established their presence in Cebu. In fact, the Parian district can be considered as the Chinatown of Cebu since many Chinese traders dropped off the products they traded in the area. With the significant Chinese population in Cebu, it is all but understandable for Chinese restaurants to sprout all around the city.
Presently, there are numerous restaurants satisfying the cravings for Chinese food of Cebuanos. Among the more prominent ones are Grand Majestic Restaurant, Ching Palace, Tin Gow, Lai Garden, and Seafood City.
However, long before these restaurants opened their doors in Cebu, there was the White Gold House restaurant. The White Gold restaurant is considered as the grandest Chinese restaurant in Cebu, located across the ruins of the old White Gold department store.
In its heyday, the White Gold House was the favorite place of anyone who wanted a taste of authentic Chinese food. It was also the venue of baptismal and wedding receptions as well as birthday parties in the past. Despite the increasing competition, it still continues to offer among the best Chinese cuisine in the city.
With the recent developments in the area, the White Gold House restaurant may relive its glory days and once again become the one of the best Chinese restaurants in the Queen City of the South.
