KESO: Elevating the Simple Sandwich in Mabolo, Cebu

new sandwich shops in Cebu

Keso, a newly opened sandwich shop at The Greenery, Mabolo

Most people eat a sandwich as a snack and don’t usually consider it as a meal. This is true especially for rice-loving Filipinos. Whether for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, rice is a staple food which typically accompanies most of the viands we eat. A lot of establishments even offer unlimited rice on their menu. But going against the grain of this popular Filipino food preference is Keso, a newly opened sandwich shop at The Greenery, Mabolo. From their classic grilled cheese sandwiches, to the heartier, protein-packed options and sweet offerings, their carb of choice here is soft and buttery brioche bread. So rice lovers, be forewarned: there is no rice, much more extra rice, here. Just good, comforting sandwiches that could very well be your next best love. more at continue reading
