    Puso Bai!

    Puso, the hanging rice is a staple in Cebu street restaurant scenes especially in barbecue restaurants and is only unique in the province. The rice is placed in a woven palm or banana leaf and is boiled until it is cooked. It is almost always, if not always, eaten with pork barbecues or other pork dishes sold in the streets of Cebu and is eaten using one's bare hands. Locals and visitors alike can see puso sold along the streets hanging or piled up on fist sized leaf pouch on top of the other. So when you are in Cebu, stop by at any of the local street barbecue restaurants and when asked if you want rice to go with your barbecue, simply say, "puso bai" (hanging rice, my friend).
