Of Bride Duties and Backstory Kitchen and Cafe

Almost a month in”hiatus” and no, I haven’t been hiding in a cave. I have been ridiculously occupied with the whole wedding planning.  I had the whole weekend planned out, meeting with suppliers, doing cake tasting, and bridal shop hopping. I saw it as a hectic weekend, DM saw a window for us to try a new place for lunch.

So amid my sudden on-the-verge-of-breaking-down-over-stress episodes, DM decided I needed a breather. And what better way to do it than over a good burger.. or two.

For burger lovers like me, Cebu never disappoints. This time, the destination was Backstory Kitchen and Cafe. We’ve heard about it for a while now, and if we still had all the time in the world like we used to, we would have explored this place sooner. Trying out newly opened restos and cafes in Cebu together used to be a favorite pastime for us.

Locating it was a bit of a trouble. Not that it was hard to find, but the area had several one-way roads that we should have familiarized first.


I was smitten right away when we arrived. A country themed signage against a worn out wall, white picket fences, and an outdoor lounge surrounded by greens would greet you, setting the tone of what you could expect from the interior.

“Isn’t this so you?” DM smiled, looking so proud of himself for taking me to my natural habitat of shabby wooden seats, bricked wall, and mason jars adorned with baby’s breath.

With an interior design so well thought of, it would be a crime not to make their offering scrumptious. Fortunately, as impressive as the ambiance was the food itself!

We had a serving of The Original Burger + Pasta combo each.

Look at those dips in shot glasses!

Juicy patty. Fresh greens. Mouthwatering, yes?

Real creamy carbonara served with generous amount of bacon and cheese… just the way I like it.

If I must give a single complaint though, it would be that the burger bun had too much sesame seeds and I could be a messy eater! *LOL

Sharing the menu below to give you an idea of what they offer.
