I had never been to a traditional Filipino BBK but this restaurant was recommended on TripAdvisor so I thought I'd try it out. It is nestled on the Northwestern side of Fuente Circle, about a half block off the circle. When entering there will be booths arranged around the perimeter of the area. Eacjh of these is a separate vendor. You pick the food you wand and tell the vendor how you want it cooked and then seat yourself at one of the long tables. When done the vendor will bring you your meal, rice, and anything else that you want. It was a great meal and a great experience.

Larsian's got a lot cleaner and more organized now than the good old days. The first thing you need to know going to larsian, especially if you are foreign, is that there will be a lot of people trying to sit you on their table. Don't be rattled and just take your time to pick where you want to buy (there typically just the same - bbq)

P.S.
When eating at larsian, I usually go to the bbq stand outside the gate closer to Chong Hua hospital. The reason of which is her prices are lower because the owner isn't paying any rental fee unlike the stalls inside.

I love the location of their bbq pit. It is centralize and the structure of the building has semi-open air benefit.. You just have to know which one offers free hot soup, kimchi, etc.

I highly recommend stall Sweet16.. it's all the way at the back.. you get free soup and kimchi if you ask for it.. the owner makes her own sweet and spicy sauce.. Go ask for Mac. Tell her Maria said Hi..

It is challenging to find good street food in Cebu. Our doorman at hotel recommended Larsian. Lots of options, many vendors. Chicken, pork and lots of seafood. Great dinner! We went back the next night.

You have to try visit Larsians! Not only is it very affordable, but the ambiance increases your appetite. The place is always jam packed and you see everyone enjoying their meats and puso. If you are more of a fish or seafood person, they have a variety of seafood for you to satisfy your hungry little self. Go on now and taste the best barbeque in Cebu!

PS. Never leave without tasting the special Cebu "chorizo" or longganisa. :)
