A couple of weeks ago, I found myself on a boat, eager to escape the hustle and bustle of Cebu City. My destination: Dumaguete.
My last "vacation" in Dumaguete lasted less than 24 hours, I was only able to try out two restaurants-- Kri and Flamin' Grill Cafe. This time around I was determined to eat more food and discover other great places to eat.
Dumaguete offers a welcome respite from familiar restaurant chains, something which I look forward to every time I go there. Read on to find out what amazing food and restaurants I tried out during my trip!
P.S. Please excuse the blurry pictures. My camera's auto-focus is broken, I've been manually adjusting the focus these last couple of weeks-- which is such a royal pain in the ass!
When I got to Dumaguete City, my cousin/tour guide, Mel, asked me what I wanted to do first. I told her I wanted to eat pancakes. I hadn't eaten in about four hours and suddenly I was craving for pancakes. So, from the boat terminal Mel took me straight to Cafe Noriter.
Noriter is a Korean word for "playground". With its whimsical decor and colorful interiors, Cafe Noriter certainly lives up to its name! This is definitely the kind of place I'd go to read a good book or enjoy a conversation with friends.
Make way for the food!

The decadence doesn't end there, next up was the fulfillment of my pancake dreams! My cousin and I shared a plate of the cafe's Special Ice Cream Waffle, a mouthwatering medley of ice cream sandwiches, waffles topped with ice cream and fruits with swirls of chocolate syrup and marshmallows. This is one hell of a feast for the sweet tooth!
Cafe Noriter's combination of quirky decor and sumptuous food definitely make it a playground for the palate and imagination!
Have you been to Cafe Noriter? Which of their food have you tried and loved?
