Giant prawns. I was asked if I wanted the dagko or the gagmay, of course I will always go for dagko. LOL. I specifically said that I wanted tulo kabuok. I noticed she was piling them up on the scale without counting so I asked her, "Pila na?" She said, "Upat." I almost got into an argument there, but she stopped when I started protesting.
Notes: Dako and gamay mean large and small respectively. Dagko and gagmay mean almost the same things but they're used for classification purposes.
Pila na? = How many are they?
Tulo kabuok = Three pieces
Upat = Four
Those huts look really interesting, though.
Fredz Carenderia is situated inside a wet market so I expected cheap dining. Can you imagine my shock at seeing the PhP960 bill? PhP300 of that went into "cooking". Gad, if I had known it would be like that, I would have cooked those prawns myself.
Come to think of it, the entire time we were in Cebu, we were spending almost a thousand bucks per meal, except for CnT Lechon. It didn't make sense to me because I used to marvel at how inexpensive everything in Cebu was. In fact, I could remember eating really good Cebuano cooking for less than PhP100. Did establishments mark up their prices because of the Sinulog Festival?
