Crocodile Sisig and Other Suprisingly Awesome Dishes

After a day’s hard work, we often look for an easygoing place to unwind with friends without having to worry about anything – especially expenses. We seek a place with great food, affordable prices and a decent ambience to spend a few hours in. 

Manggahan is the perfect concoction to your de-stressing needs. It offers unbelievably low prices for food and liquor, matched with a cozy ambience and live acoustic entertainment daily.

Located in Lahug and joining the growing stream of restaurants in the neighborhood, “Manggahan”, in Cebuano, means mango tree plantation. The idea of the name was taken from the big mango tree at the back of the restaurant. The old mango tree becomes the highlight of the garden.
