Choobi Choobi! Lingaw Lingaw Kaon!
If it’s one thing that brings Filipinos together, it’s our love for good food. Our sense of community and companionship is formed over sharing meals with each other. And if you’re a lover of fresh seafood, you’re in for a treat.
The only restaurant that uses fresh shrimp harvested in Cebu from the largest shrimp farm in the Philippines, Choobi Choobi brings a fresh and unique seafood dining experience to you. Imagine a fresh catch of seafood served to you in exciting, flavorful ways. There’s no need to catch a flight to Cebu to experience this because their leading restaurant is now in Manila.
Choobi Choobi owner Stan Tanchan’s dream is to provide Filipinos with export-quality shrimp at local prices. He has had his shrimp farm for over 20 years, but it was only later on that Choobi Choobi was born. He first began by exporting his shrimp. Stan’s passion for food combined with his dream translated into cooking—creating all the recipes himself. Choobi Choobi was born out of his love for food and sharing it with great company. Though shrimp is Choobi Choobi’s specialty, their menu boasts of Filipino comfort food that’ll have you saying, “lami kaayo!” even if
you’re not Cebuano.
If it’s your first time at Choobi Choobi, you must try their Shrimp in a Bag. It is as the name suggests: a pound of shrimps served in a bag, but cooked in a variety of ways and oozes with their savory butter garlic sauce.
You will want to pair it with their Cha Tao Miao—stir fried snow pea sprouts; crunchy and tasty, it’s the perfect side dish! If you want your shrimp a little bit different, why not try their other signature dish, Stan’s Black Pepper Shrimp? A pound of shrimp cooked in Stan’s special black pepper sauce. It’s another crunchy treat that will leave your taste buds happy with its abundance in flavor.
Their other signature dishes include Lola Pepang’s Chicken—a hearty family fried chicken recipe passed down four
generations; Chilean Mussels—a fresh bag of Chilean Mussels with cooked in the flavor of your choice; and Stuffed Grilled Squid—mouth-watering squid stuffed with black rice.
You’ll want to pair these tasty delights with their fresh selection of signature refreshments: Fresh Pineapple Organic Wheatgrass, Fresh Pineapple Organic Kale, Lychee Organic Kale shake. Doesn’t that make you want to stop whatever you’re doing and call your friends to eat?
Choobi Choobi’s tagline “lingaw lingaw kaon” stands for just that: enjoy a fresh and unique dining experience with great company. It is an invitation to come together and eat well as community is at the heart of any Choobi Choobi meal.
They believe in giving their customers—or Choobi friends as they call them—with a fresh and unique food experience. These two qualities are the pulse of their brand, which their new endorser is the epitome of. She shares many qualities that are in tandem with Choobi Choobi’s. Aside from being a hard-working, yet humble lead in Be My Lady, she has a refreshing and vibrant personality. Like Choobi Choobi, she values her faith and is proud to be Filipino—a great fit for a restaurant that focuses on preparing delicious, quality Filipino comfort food. Choobi Choobi’s new face is none other than Erich Gonzales.
