Last May 1, 2016, Choobi Choobi officially launched their newest branch at Limketkai Center, Cagayan de Oro City. The store originally opened its first branch in Cebu on July2013. Currently, the store has 16 branches nationwide and still continues growing.
Choobi Choobi’s tag line is “Lingaw Lingaw Kaon!”, a Visayan word for Enjoy, Enjoy Eating! To give a brief background of this store, it is a family oriented casual dining restaurant. Although some thought that this is a Korean establishment because of how the name sounded, the restaurant actually offered Filipino Food Comfort. Their house specialties are mostly shrimps, and there are also squid, shellfish, fish, lobster, giant bamboo clam and baby lobster.
For the not so seafood-lover, you can order their Choobi crispy pata, Fried manok, crispy adobong kanding, fried herbed spring duck, belly dance, sizzling boneless bangus and many more. Try to check their food posted below so that you know what to order when you are planning to visit the restaurant.
Choobi Choobi’s grand opening at LLKS was attended by their new brand ambassador, Kapamilya actress Erich Gonzales. Fans flocked at the mall’s rotunda to get a glimpse of her and fortunately for some, they got to dine with Erich at the store located at the 2nd floor of the mall.
Local Medias were invited to grace the event and as a member of CDO Bloggers, I got the chance to see and interview Ms. Erich up close and personal. She entertained all questions thrown at her on why she chose to endorse the said restaurant. Being a seafood-lover, she did not hesitate to accept Choobi Choobi’s invitation to be their brand ambassador.
In case you have not yet tried the restaurant, visit Choobi Choobi at the 2nd Level East Annex Building at Limketkai Mall or you can also visit them at the 2nd floor of Centrio Ayala Mall, Cagayan de Oro City.
