Lunch on an island?
Avail of Bluewater Sumilon Beach Resort’s Day Tour Package that includes a sumptuous lunch and feast on succulent seafood, more traditional fare or simply grilled entrees. Located in Oslob, Cebu, you can reach the place in four hours by taking a bus or van ride from Cebu City. Or you can reach it via Dumaguete City – take a thirty minute ferry ride from the Sibulan Port to Santander, Cebu, hop on a bus for a fifteen minute ride to the resort’s Front Office in Oslob, and another fifteen minute boat ride to the island. The island Pavilion serves delectable fare of local and international cuisine. With high thatched ceiling, it boasts of a spectacular panoramic view of the ocean and mainland Cebu as you feast on healthy food. Breakfast on the weekends is often served buffet style. Take your pick from an assortment of freshly baked bread and cheeses, go for congee and have fun picking out your noodle toppings, have an omelette cooked to your specifications, or go for fiber with healthy cereals and fruits. Continental or Filipino breakfast may be ordered a la carte from the menu. You may also opt for a set menu. The Chef normally has one prepared for special occasions based on whatever ingredients are in season. Start off with a light warm soup to whet your appetite. Appetizers include bacon rolls served with fresh cucumber and sun-ripened tomato slices. You may also opt for pickled delicacies such as papaya or radishes while waiting for the main course to be served.
Grilled squid or prawns are always served freshly cooked for that extra flavor!
Desserts such as Apple Tarts are home made and not ordered from the mall! For lunch or dinner, try their version of Crispy Bagnet (Pork Knuckle) served with Pinakurat (Ilokano) Vinegar. Or try their version of Creamy Seafood Pasta with generous servings of shrimps, squid or crab meat. Finish off with their version of Brazo de Mercedes that is just right enough to take away that seafood aftertaste, but not sweet enough to raise your sugar level to the heavens. The resort has, for the past couple of years, implemented Zero Waste Management and Composting on site, with an area allocated to growing organic vegetables and herbs, vermiculture, and beekeeping. Their first harvest of honey from the two bee colonies they currently have were sent to the main resort in Maribago, Cebu for the culinary team to sample and test, and from which they plan to design a menu that makes full use of the health and epicurean benefits of honey.
