One of the most popular budget meals here in Cebu is Steamed Rice.
In Cebu, when a person mentioned steamed rice, chances are he or she is talking about a bowl of fried rice with toppings rather than the usual steamed rice you’re accustomed to or that we call “kanin” or “sinaing na bigas”.
Steamed Rice in Cebu consists of a bowl or fried rice then topped with sauces containing beef, pork or chicken. This is popular among students or those who are on a budget for it is a complete meal already (no need to your buy rice and viand separately) and sells for about 50 to 65 pesos per serving.

Dimsum Break also offers 99 Pesos steam rice value meals (drinks not included) during afternoons. These includes a serving or steamed rice, siomai or spring rolls, soup, and buchi.

Steamed rice also goes well with dimsum and dumplings. It would be nice to order some dumplings like pork siomai, quail egg dumplings, chicken feet and spring rolls.
For spicy food lover’s it is best to ask your restaurants if they serve a spice version of their steamed rice, or if not, just ask for some chili oil and ginger sauce.
