Choobi Choobi’s Newest Face is Erich Gonzales
From the word itself, Cebu restaurant, Choobi Choobi means “fun”, and there couldn’t be a better way to unveil its newest endorser recently. Star Magic artist, Erich Gonzales, was all smiles during her contract-signing last Feb. 29 in its Quezon City branch. The team behind Choobi Choobi enthuses how Erich values her faith and is proud to be Filipino, which is a great complement to a restaurant that focuses on creating Filipino comfort food.
Present in the launch was owner, Stan Tanchan. His passion in providing Filipinos with export-quality shrimp at affordable prices was born out of his shrimp farm that has existed for over 20 years. That lead to the now famous Choobi Choobi being accessible nationwide. It has branches in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
Just as vibrant as Erich’s personality were the dishes served that day! These include the all refreshing Chao Tao Miao, which is a stir-friend snow pea sprouts. Quite the healthy but yummy choice! Thumbs up for the health buffs out there such as myself!
There was also the Seafood Barkada Bag, which is a mix of baby lobsters, chorizo, mussels, shrimp and corn.
The Salted Egg Shrimp was such a big hit among the event participants with its mashed salted duck egg that came along with the mouthwatering sauce.
Choobi Pata was also very well-received, naturally, with its crunchy pork skin and juicy meat! How could any Filipino possible resist that?
As for Erich’s very own favorite? The Stan’s Fried Black Pepper Shrimp could not have been presented any better. Dip the shrimps into the black pepper sauce and munch on the entire shrimp (including the shells) and you will find your mouth singing the hallelujah chorus!
Then there was Lola Pepang’s Friend Manok, which was brought to life by the fried chicken’s secret seasoning. As to what that is, we don’t really know but one thing is for sure, it tasted quite heavenly!
The last dish to be served was the pork barbecue – tender and really juicy down to the very core!
It was a good line up of dishes. Everything was savory and if you’re looking for a fun and reasonably priced place to bond with the family or the barkada then this place is, without a question, worth visiting!
