The Flavors by Tanny

           Good food and good ambiance, the first two things we consider in choosing the place to go when we eat out together with our families and or with friends. There are numerous Filipino restaurants here in Cebu but only a few can be considered authentic. Most of these restaurants are not only bringing culture and heritage to our plates but also brings back the genuine time wherein our ancestors were playful enough to come up with the common Filipino dishes we have right now. I’m grateful that there are Filipinos who are likely creative to fuse Filipino dishes with other cuisines, like how Mr. Constantine Tan-Chan brings Flavors by Tanny which offers  upscale, healthy yet affordable and good Filipino-Fused dishes to us here in Cebu. Flavors by Tanny opened last December and they will have their grand launching on the 15th of March 2014 wherein they will be raffling Ipad minis on that day (and I guess you don’t wanna miss it!)! You can get one raffle ticket for every 500 pesos accumulated in dining at The Flavors. You still have the time! 


Mr Constantine, proudly tells you that Flavors serves not only good but also satisfying organic dishes with the Filipino touch. He promises the freshness and quality of the ingredients being used in every dish to make more dining here in Flavors warming and enjoyable. 


Stepping in Flavors I was welcomed by the bright, airy and inviting atmosphere of the place, I loved the simplicity of the interior cause it makes the place wholesome and so natural. I’m a simple person so I’m easily pleased with simple things. Vivid colors, brown and green were comfort to the eyes and the set up was perfectly fit for the people who wants to have quality time with their families and friends. 







Wide array of dishes were served for us to devour, to start we had The Tanny’s Organic Salad which is a fresh mix of garden greens topped with Alfalfa sprouts with spicy roe dressing. The greens were really fresh and the dressing bit amazed my palate, combination of sweet and spicy all together brushing with the creaminess gave a wonderful start to my eating adventure for that day

The “Pho” Chero was the combination of our “Pochero” and Vietnamese rice noodles, this was a pot of gold which had the key to a full belly, beef was so tender (very slow cooked) and the noodles were so firm. You just have to get them together to fully enjoy it. This serves 3-4 hungry bellies!

Those crispy Spring Rolls with Sweet chilli sauce also appealed my palate, carrots, celery and corn were wrapped and deep fried (I love their “lumpia”/ spring roll wrapper because they were not that salty) Hey, man! Don’t cut the guilt! Even if it’s deep fried, there are vegetables in it! So what? To wrap it up, outside is crispy but it’s not dry on the inside (Still, don’t judge a book by its cover!) and It was also kind of sweet on the inside. (I guess it’s because of the vegetable juices and the kind of oil used

Another exciting dish was the “Chichaprawns” these are Prawns breaded with “Chicharon” or salted pork cracklings; Oh my, the toothsome combination, this dish was just simply incredible! The two great things I love, Prawns and Chicharon joined their forces to make an extraordinary dish. I can still remember how crunchy, and crispy and lustily good this dish was (I actually had two pieces with this, cause I usually limit myself with one because its breaded and deep fried). This dish by Flavors is a good reward after the workloads I had to do for school; I deserved the “Chichaprawns”! (Oh boy! I’m craving for more) Zhequia agrees with me in this! The chicharon had the delightful relationship with the mayonnaise so I have to cut it from here from here.

           The Flavors Ginger Chicken Stew, was similar to our “Chicken Adobo”, it just had ginger in it. (heeee common sense for me hahaha). The chicken was tender and carried the gingery flavour, (for rice eaters like me) this dish will cost you another round of rice (don’t cut the guilt!). The mix was not new to me because my mum, loves to put Ginger in her home cooked “Chicken Adobo”, she loved it that way tho.

Next dish was the Flavors Kaldereta Special (Goat stew). The sauce was a bit tangy and sweet for me, but its good in a way and I have to say that it’s better than the ones  from Rex’s Kandingan sa SRP (you can check my post about it right here) because meat was fork tender and it didn’t have the not-so-good-goat-smell that we usually notice in goat dishes.

To make room for the Carbs (CHO), Truffle Carbonara was laid next; I didn’t find anything special from the dish, like an ordinary Carbonara, it was creamy and sweet. The noodles were also firm but a small portion of it was enough for me..

Someone’s craving for Steak was fixed in here; USDA tenderloin steak with Flavors’ touch was served in a platter of happiness accompanied with veggies and mashed potato. Hmmm! I’ve been meaning for a medium rare steak for the longest and here, I met you my darling! This is 8 out of 10. This platter serves 3-4 heads, so good for sharing!


Steak Baby!

Zhequia and I both agreed that their mashed potatoes is one of the best Mashed Potatoes in town, this was smooth and not that creamy and this was peppery too (I’ kinda don’t like those creamy mashed ones cause they’re just so commercialized),

For our drinks, Z had the Mango Basil Shake while I had the Pineapple Kale Shake, the combination of Pineapple and Kale was beatific and so healthy indeed, you can't really taste the Kale cause the Pineapple was there to fill the whole drink. Z loves Basil so she had the Mango Basil, for me the Basil was overpowering but surprisingly, the combination was wonderful.
