On a Monday evening, my brothers and I had a group dinner at Choobi Choobi restaurant located at Robinsons Galleria mall, Cebu. Just like last week’s Shakey’s dinner, we met after our youngest brother finished his shift from work. His office is just located near the mall so we decided to hang out and have a meal.
We tried searching for a pizza place but couldn’t find one. Robinsons Galleria is still a relatively new mall and even if there were number of shops already open, a pizza restaurant was not yet present. We settled for a store that offered Pinoy food at reasonable rates.

Choobi Choobi comes from the Fookien word which means “to enjoy”, that’s why the restaurant tagline says “Lingaw Lingaw Kaon!” This family restaurant offers mostly comfort Pinoy food.
They are proud in growing their own shrimps and claim to have the freshest and cheapest shrimps in the city. But aside from their shrimps, they have a few notable favourites including Crispy Pata, Crispy Adobong Kanding, Lola Pepang’s Fried Manok, Mama Pina’s Fried Herbed Spring Duck, Stuffed Grilled Squid, etc.

Shrimp in a bag
Among the food items we ordered, what really stood out for me were the crispy pata, fried calamari, shrimp in a bag, and the baked scallops. The soup was not bad too.
I was also happy with the fresh mango shake as it’s been awhile since I drank fresh fruit shakes.
Utan bisaya soup
The meal for the group was really worth it. There were four of us and we were all quite hungry so having an affordable food package while tasting a bit of their offerings was a good decision.
We would like to try some of their house favorites next time.
