Casa Verde Ranudo branch, now Lim Tian Teng Street
For meat lovers, one of the best places to get their fill of meaty goodness is Casa Verde
. Though they specialize in American cuisine, the Cebuano owners of this family-owned restaurant have Spanish roots. Starting out as a small canteen in Ramos St. in 2002, Casa Verde has since expanded to become a full-service restaurant with six branches in Cebu and Manila. Customers keep coming back for Brian’s Ribs, a generous slab of baked pork ribs slathered with a smoky-sweet sauce, with a side of rice, corn, and carrots.
