You have to try the "Paa", the Atay, isol, batikolon, and of course garlic rice and chicken oil. Pair it with their pork sinigang and you will be more than satisfied. Must try when going to Cebu.

Do give the roast chicken, grilled bangus (fish) a try. They do serve coconuts, which are huge but not that sweet.

This is a local Philippines cuisine restaurant with many branches in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao islands.
They serve JO’s Pork Barbecue, JO’s Buko Halo Special, Pancit Macao, and many other Filipino classic cuisine. Their food are freshly prepared using the finest cuts of chicken, pork and freshest vegetable.
I like their chicken and soup very much and the price overall is reasonable. The design of the restaurant is very authentic and the staffs are nice and accommodating.
One of the special features in Philippines is bottomless drink or unlimited rice. Here the rice is unlimited too haha..
It is near to Cebu Doctor's Hospital. You should give it a try if you have the chance!
