I’ve wandered throughout Cebu looking for good food and it never failed me, but even when there are a lot of good restaurants out there: it seemed too generic to me. I’m looking for something that’s new and not famous because I’d love to discover them first, especially those that are praiseworthy.
There are those that stood out and one is Gibbs: Hot Wings located in Holy Family Village II, Banilad, Cebu City. It’s the village after you’ve passed the Banilad fly over if you’re coming from Cebu City.
Gibbs: Hot Wings offers you a very famous treat of hot chicken wings in different levels: hot, original, insanely hot, 2 intense and freakin’ hot. I’m not going to mention how spicy the levels are, but you have to try them yourselves.
And even when we ordered two of the insanely hot chicken wings; it was just worth it. The taste was so good, and cooked very well. The sauce that covered the wings was the one causing the spiciness of the dish and that’s what makes it a superstar.
I’m kind of happy tasting this original spicy wings in town because I’ve tasted WORST. One restaurant served us wings with hot ketchup drops over it. I won’t mention the name of the restaurant again because it’s been a year, and I’m hoping that they’ve changed the way they cook their spicy wings.
Anyhow, the insanely hot wings we have was spicy, but the magic was that we never stopped tearing the wings apart and put it in our mouths, and my partner IS never a fan of spicy food but he LOVED this one. And one reason why he doesn’t love spicy foods was that every after dining, he feels sick, but the spicy wings in Gibbs were a miracle.
They also have other offers like Spaghetti Meatballs, Carbonara, Mozarella sticks and Potato Wedges which were love, love, love. Everything here is just pure delish.
What I’m bummed about the place was that it was too small, BUT I believe that this restaurant has a huge potential in becoming the next ‘IT’ in town, although I’ve learned for a fact that Gibbs is a ‘must visit’ for University students and some alta-sociedad. And going there means to call in for reservation (number by the end).
There are writings on the wall of the restaurant from customers, but we didn’t get the chance to write ours because there weren’t space for us, but that’s fine. I’m hoping we’ll be one of the people to write messages on their wall when they have another chain somewhere in the city.
Gibbs: Hot Wings became instantly one of my favorite spots, and I’ll be visiting this place again and again and again.
Check it out and tell me about it!
