“Cebu loves Barbecue..Cebu loves Larsian”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

The larsian area has been around for ages and people seem to like the street food atmosphere as well as their barbecue chicken and rice in the form of puso(rice wrapped in coconut leaf). They now offer seafood, there are many food stalls in the "larsian" and its sometimes trial and error or if your semi savy, you try to pick the stall that looks "fresh"

Caution: Ive eaten at two different stalls,same type order and somehow the price gap was big. the grilled squid seemed to cost about p100 more about same size mind you.

Other than that its a street food place to visit at night, if you crave the atmosphere.

“Cebu barbeque experience!”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

If someone wants to experience real Cebu Barbeque experience, this is a must-try! The prices are very cheap but the food taste great. And what you're really getting here is the Cebu experience. The place is like a endless row of barbeque stores offering almost all types of seafoods and meat.

“not for the faint of heart”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

The food is cheap compared to other places and they are served hot. You can see them cooking in the middle area. The eating tables are tight. It was hard to get around. This place could be sweltering hot during the day but cool during the night. The food on display may or may not be fresh anymore.

“Great place to get a late night meal or snack”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Larsian is open late, or maybe open all night.
There are many different food sellers, but most of the serve the same foods.
Service varies depending upon which food seller you go to.
I have been eating here for 10 years, and have never gotten sick.
Not the cleanest place, but safe enough.
Good, cheap , and satisfying.
