Carenderia Ni Eton: Must-Try Kan-Anan in Argao Cebu

By: Emelie Anggoy on Wednesday, March 15, 2017

Argao, the place I have been longing to tour because of its beautiful cultural and heritage setting as well as its famous torta delicacy! I finally set my feet on this beautiful place two weeks ago. Unlike other people, I was not there during daytime. I was there at night time because a good friend invited us to have a quick visit in their eating place. The transportation and food expenses were free; so, who am I to “No” to that? Besides, I was vacant that time so that’s why my answer was “Yes”.

The place :)
If you visit Argao next time, you should try eating at Carenderia Ni Eton. This is a restaurant managed by Robert Yap and is located near the main road, in front of GD gasoline station. Carenderia Ni Eton was made out of Robert’s love to his fallen police brother whose nickname was “Eton”. After the death of his elder brother, he was left with all family responsibilities. He figured he needed to do something about it in order to sustain the family’s needs. He thought of starting a food business and thus the birth of Carenderia Ni Eton food place.

Wellbein, Robert, Me and Rady :)
The restaurant’s tagline is “Hapit Ug Mangaon Ta bai!” ("Come And Let’s Eat" in english). Robert was very accommodating. He and his whole staff were super friendly. They wore smiles all the time! They served us these very delectable foods.

These were the foods we ate. You must try these, too! For sure you will love the hot and mouth-watering pochero just like I did.

We also got to visit Argao’s famous Torta manufacturing site and were able to taste their torta and cookies.
