Cowrie Grill at The Podium

Cowrie Grill at The Podium

Golden Cowrie Filipino Kitchen restaurants originally located in Mactan, Lahug, Cebu City, Bohol and Mandaue City since 1982 is now in S’Maison Conrad hotel since 2016 and recently at The Podium in December 2017.


The menu lists offer traditional flavors like Sinigang na Hipon, Grilled Tuna Belly, Adobong Talong, Pork Sisig, authentic Cebu Lechon and Baked Bantayan Scallops. Other favorites include the Pomelo Salad (singakamas and pomelo in calamansi based dressing topped with crunchy dried squid), Pinaupong Manok (bathed in hot oil, cooked in salt with secret spices) and Zarzuela de Mariscos (seafood cooked in light tomato sauce, olive oil, tomatoes and coco wine).

Vegetarians can avail Vegetarian Sisig, Meatless Dinuguan and other innovative dishes to their discerning palate. They will still experience Cowrie Grill’s distinctive and unique flavors.

Lechon Belly
I've tried different kinds of lechon around the Philippines and I found that usually the best ones are found on the side road establishments around Cebu. But I found the skin of their lechon a bit difficult to eat and I have sensitive teeth and I could feel it would break if I continued eating it. I just stuck with belly meat instead. It was flavorful but I wish it was more tender. 
Baked Bantayan Scallops
Scallops! I love seafood but the cost in Manila can be pricey. Whenever I go to Cebu I make sure to eat seafood there cause it is fresher and cheaper. This dish brought me back to Cebu. I like the cheesy topping with the scallop.

Director for product development Kristine de la Riva-Kokseng want to celebrate heritage with refreshingly Filipino dishes amid casual interior design of the restaurant reflecting Cebuano craftsmanship through the use of Mactan stones and variety of weavings.

The Podium branch can accommodate up to 120 guests with function rooms available for private events of 40 persons.

This is one out of thirteen restaurants found on the 5th floor. Thank you Podium Marketing Team for having me. I had fun attending the event that afternoon.
