Adding to the authentic feel is the furniture and decorations made out of native Filipino materials. From the lamps to the tables and chairs, true pinoy art.
As rice is the staple of the Philippines, there is no question how Chika-an has captured the hearts and stomachs of every Cebuano by offering their unlimited rice. Of course, rice is well paired with the all-time favorite Filipino dishes such as Sizzling Squid, Sinigang Shrimp, Ampalaya with Dilis and much more mouthwatering dishes cooked to perfection.
