the barbecue was really yummy.... where you can taste it only in Cebu. The area was not that clean yet it is very accessible because it is just near the hospital

To me, dining at Larsian is more about the experience than the food. As others have noted, just about every stall is selling the same thing, with very little variation. You can choose from chicken skin (P15), thigh, and intestine, different fish cuts, chorizo (P15?), stuffed squid, and pork strips (P5 and P15). Some sell prawns, crab, seaweed, and fruit shakes, and a handful offers free soup or kimchi (must be because of so many Koreans visiting/staying in Cebu). The rice is sold in intricately weaved coconut(?) leaves called puso at P3. We bought 10 from a stall and got 3 smaller ones free.

We dropped by Larsian at around 8:30pm (it's walking distance from the hotel we stayed at, Adelfa Hotel), and there are a lot of free seats. Sellers are lively and would try to lead you to their stalls, but it's better to take your time and look around.

The ambiance is pretty good, and I seriously love the smell of meat/seafood being grilled. Not exactly the best eatery in the city, but with the cheap price and the atmosphere, it's certainly worth visiting.

If you don't want to spend that much but you are craving for BBQ best is to go at Larsian. For 4, we spent around P500 for an overload of isaw, chorizo, hotdog, bbq and lots of puso (rice).

Best to go here at night and look for the best deal - some shops offer free kimchi or soup or drinks.

Smokey...
Crowded...
Barbecue scent...
Open air...
Plastic Gloves...
The vendors was a bit overwhelming. They swarmed and called out on you to eat on their table and of course order from their stall. In short, it was felt like a "palengke" minus the stinky scent since it's all barbecue everywhere you look. The food is good. We Just didn't appreciate being charged for a basket of rice when we haven't finished the served basket. The rice overcharging happened not Just once. We've learned on our next visit that we came in prepared. We went straight to the same stall as we appreciated the service of Manong's. This time, we set our rice leaves wrappers time make sure to have it counted after. Meticulously computer and check our bill per item. Then, we leave with happy tummy and happier purse. Yay!
