Travel Across Different Dishes With Your Tongue At District on 53rd inCebu Philippines

Sail away and fly to different destinations via food with District on 53rd’s menu choices of 53 dishes  inspired by food from all around the world.

Details below...

In my travels I go for food that is distinct to each culture to study the different ingredients used and taste the fusion of flavours that create certain dishes unique to my palette.  

An experience that can be so mind-blowing and eye-opening (or maybe tongue-opening?) when one discovers certain herbs when mixed with a country's specie of fruit can make all the difference to make your tongue venture into different possibilities in flavour.

District on 53rd is a restaurant that is inspired by unique food items, dishes, and drinks to specific favourite countries visited and tasted.  A wonderful concept that I myself dreamed of having (when I have my own restaurant), brought to reality.

One can let their tongue travel around the world with the menu of 53 dishes.  

For the Cebu Food Crawl, we started with Watermelon Daiquiri, and a complimentary District Sungka of Hummus Harissa (mashed chickpeas, tahini sesame paste, harissa chili pepper paste), Pesto Dip (mayonnaise, walnuts, basil pesto), Mango Chutney (ripe mango, sugar, apple cider vinegar, cumin), Tomato Salsa (tomato, bell pepper, basil, onion) to dip in with our Homemade Chips and Turmeric bread.

Followed by a lovely Porcini Fondue with Focaccia Bread (good as comfort food).  This was cheesy creamy with bits of mushroom and ham.

I had a taste of their Chinese Malay-inspired “Noodle Seafood Laksa” 24th in the 53.  If you are a fan of sour soups like the Filipino Sinigang, you will enjoy this.

Then lastly, Pistachio Lamb Shish Kebab 48th in the 53...

nicely complimented with Lemon + Calamansi Margherita.
Overall, I found District on 53rd as a lovely place to remember certain food you have tried in different countries.  Also if you are curious about food from cuisines you have never tried before, this is a good stop.

What If You Had Trouble Choosing?
For those who crave the Filipino favourites, the lechon, adobo, and some other Filipino food are still available in the menu.  So no need to panic if the selection is too diverse for your taste.

Aside from the 53 dishes, there are also choices of sandwiches, breakfast staples, pastries, bread, and ice creams.

District on 53rd is one of the restaurants that boast of bringing in flavours from different sides of the world in the desire to please the bored palette.

If you want to be transported to different cuisines in one sitting, you now know this place.

District on 53rd is located in Cyberzone, Filinvest, Salinas Drive, Lahug, Cebu City.  It is open from 7:00am-1:00am 7 days a week.

That's it.

Catch me on my next munchtrip!
