Food Trip at Sheraton Mactan Cebu

It’s Flashback Friday so let me reminisce about our previous trip because two days ago my husband told me that one of his colleagues was asking about our Sheraton Mactan and Shangri la Mactan experience and he was searching my posts pero wala daw Sheraton Mactan. I did not post pictures on Facebook except for my story which is only available for 24 hours. So due to public insistent demand, I will continue my Cebu series. Hehehe! 

Let me start with our food trip, we were in Sheraton Mactan for 3 days and 2 nights and we did not go out so we just ate inside the resort. During our trip, the resort is just a few weeks old so the only options are 5 Cien, Buhi Bar, and Sa Sitio Bakery & Bar. The Dip (Nikkei Restaurant) was still under construction so we were not able to try it pa. 

5 Cien

5 Cien is their All-Day Dining restaurant which offers international cuisine. It is open as early as 6AM and closing time is 11PM. This is also where you eat your complimentary buffet breakfast. They have live stations so you can see chefs while preparing your food or drinks. 

Buhi Bar

Buhi Bar is located near the pool and beach, our favorite spot here is the cave. Limited lang yung spot so first come first serve. The bar offers Mediterranean bites with cocktails. Open from 2PM to 12AM.

Sa Sitio Bakery & Bar 

Sa Sitio Bakery & Bar is a coffee shop, deli, and bakery. It is open as early as 7AM so you can buy breakfast, snacks, or even take-outs. I bought bread here before we went to the airport. The closing time is 10PM. 

Lunch at 5 Cien 

We had a morning flight so wala pa 11AM gutom na kami so we went to 5 Cien for our early lunch. The restaurant offers all-day breakfast, appetizers, salads, soups, sandwiches, burgers, pasta, and dessert. For mains, you have options for Asian, Filipino, and Western cuisine. They also have Kid’s Menu. 

We ordered Wings and Mojos PHP620, Nasi Goreng PHP620, and Adobo Marinated Grilled Chicken PHP420 + Service Charge. While waiting for our food, they serve complimentary bread. 

My son is no longer a kid but he likes the grilled chicken so we asked if we can order from the kid’s menu and the staff said yes. But we had no idea na pangKids din yung plate. Hehehe! 

Dinner at Buhi Bar 

Since we spent our afternoon at the pool, we had an early dinner at Buhi Bar before we went back to our room. They also have a Happy Hour Promo, I can’t remember the name of these beverages but the two drinks are PHP425 + Service Charge. 

For our meal, we only ordered two meals plus extra rice because we had a hard time finishing our lunch meal so para hindi sayang ang food. We ordered Mango BBQ Wings PHP520 and Adobo Rito PHP560 + Service Charge

In-Room Dining 

Set Breakfast 

My husband only used his points to book our room so breakfast is not included in our package so for our first breakfast, we chose “In-Room Dining”. We ordered Punta Engaňo Sunrise PHP840, Daing na Bangus PHP560 and Arroz caldo PHP450 + Service Charge

Punta Engaňo Sunrise PHP840 

Served with garlic rice, pickled papaya, Taboan of the Day 
Choice of chilled juice mango, orange, apple, or pineapple. 
Choice of two bakery items: ensaymada, pandesal, ube pandesal, pan de coco, pan Bisaya. 
Fruit Plate 
Choice of savory items served with two eggs of any style, tocino, longganisa, bangus, beef tapa. 
Choice of coffee, decaffeinated coffee, hot chocolate, breakfast tea, sikwate. 
Choice of whole milk, skimmed milk, soy milk 

Daing na Bangus PHP560 

Pan-fried milkfish, pickled papaya, garlic rice. 
Two eggs of any style: sunny side up, over easy, poached, or scrambled. 

Arroz Caldo PHP450 

Hash brown, pork sausage, chicken sausage, or crispy bacon. 

When our food was served, nalula na kami sa dami so I took a picture of it and we started eating kasi gutom na rin. Nung kalagitnaan na ng kainan, napaisip ako kasi feeling ko may kulang pa, so I compared my list and photo. 

Then I discovered that we received an incomplete breakfast. We don’t have a sunny-side-up egg, I chose a sunny-side-up egg for my son so parang lahat, scrambled egg ang binigay. My husband has no pork sausage, arroz caldo lang ang binigay. Also for my order, we did not receive the fruit plate. 

We did not bother to call the restaurant because we were already full and marami pa kami left over. We just decided na sa restaurant na kami magbreakfast next time. 


We still have breakfast leftover so for lunch, we ate inside the room na lang. We just ordered Sinigang Soup PHP620, Steamed Rice PHP110 per cup, and Kakanin Selection PHP280 + Service Charge.

Mocktails at Buhi Bar

I don’t have pictures of our dinner, so it is either we did not order and ate our leftovers or we ordered the same food. The only picture that I have is our Mocktails at Buhi Bar which we got after playing Seeker’s Game

Complimentary Buffet Breakfast at 5 Cien 

And because of our incomplete breakfast, we decided to eat at the restaurant, brunch na para busog na kami bago magcheck-out. So while everybody was busy eating their breakfast, we were swimming at the pool. 

After swimming and showering, my husband and son went to the restaurant first and I just told them my order. I am not in a hurry na magprepare because I know it will take more than 20 minutes bago maserve yung food pero nagtataka ko at panay tunog ng phone ko. When I answered my phone, my husband told me na buffet na daw kami so bumaba na daw ako. What!?! 

Remember the incomplete order that we experienced? Well, before my husband ordered our meals, he informed the staff about it and we did not expect that the manager will upgrade us to buffet breakfast to compensate for the mistake. Wow! 

We are happy with the upgrade but at the same time we are also in a hurry because we only have less than 30 minutes before the closing time. If we knew na ganito mangyayari, sana pala inagahan namin kumain, hehehe! Well, ito na yung pinakamabilis na hotel breakfast namin.
