VONCHOK KABKABAN: Grilling Your Favorite Street Foods

VONCHOK KABKABAN: Grilling Your Favorite Street Foods
By: Nickson Garcia

Ihaw-ihaw! A cooking method well-known in the Philippines which means "to cook on charcoal". This was the inspiration of our next restaurant feature in the city of Cagayan De Oro named Vonchok Kabkaban. I am a pure Manileno and when I heard of this restaurant, I easily wondered what it meant.

"Vonchok" is a name combination of the owner namely, Von and Chok while "Kabkaban" is a bisaya term that refers to a "place of grilling" (lugar ng pinagiihawan). Thus, the name of the restaurant was derived.

Vonchok Kabkaban offers a wide variety of "ihaw-ihaw" choices. Customers might think that since it is a grilling place then they only offer the basics like barbeque, hotdog, and isaw. Apart from it, they offer foods such as the Tuna Belly/Panga (I must say, that was one fresh Tuna Belly I tasted). Chorizo and one of their best seller, Tinulang Tuna.

The Chicken choices were also delicious as it can compete with well-known "ihaw" restaurant in Manila. But what sets Vonchok Kabkaban from other "ihaw" place is their special sauce. Specially made by the owners, the sauce tastes sweet with a little kick of spicyness that customer would definitely kept on asking for a refill.

Lastly, it has a very affordable price. Customers always want their money's worth. With Vonchok Kabkaban, their foods were big and freshly grilled/cooked upon service.
