Aside from puso (hanging rice) and steamed rice, another Cebuano "original" is the ngohoing (ngo-yong). Ngohiong is Cebu's version of vegetable lumpia. It is very popular here in Cebu that you can buy it in dimsum places like Harbour City or in the streets at your favorite pongko-ponko stall. One popular food spot known for ngohiong is in Fairlane Subdivision in Barangay Guadalupe. It is just a small eatery, but it is usually packed during lunch time.
One time, I had a craving for this crunchy food item. I decided to take some of my agents to Doming's at Fairlane to have a taste of the best ngohiong according to many people. We went to Doming's Ngohiong to eat lunch; but, we had to wait for a bit because they ran out of puso. The ngohiong is freshly fried when it came. I also ordered some fried batikon (chicken gizzards). We really enjoyed our lunch and the best part is that we did spend that much. Currently, the ngohiong is sold for only 6 pesos ($0.15) a piece and the puso is only 2 pesos. If you are in a saving mode, you can actually have a lunch with just 20 pesos (2 ngohiongs and 4 puso). The key to an enjoyable ngohiong meal is the sauce and Doming's sauce compliments their ngohiong very well. No wonder many people go there to have lunch every day. If you happen to be in Guadalupe and looking for an affordable lunch alternative, try Doming's. Beware you might become one of their suki (regular customers).
