At The Pitstop

Don Jose Avila St., Capitol Site, Cebu City
(032) 254 3550
Sunday to Thursday 7AM to 10PM
Friday and Saturday 7AM to 1AM
Street parking only

Of course the interiors have to match the name of the restaurant

Refueling and changing of tires at a pitstop will only take seconds. Refueling at this pitstop will take more than that. A long long while more than that. What with three menus, front and back, to read through and decide upon.

Other mango stuff spotted in the restaurant: mango ketchup, mango jam, mango bars.

But there is an exception. Me! I was like one of the pit crew, in 2 seconds flat, even before the server had reached my table, I had already told him what I wanted: Mango Pizza. Cheese, ripe yellow mangoes, green bell pepper, and cashew nuts. On crust.

9" Mango Pizza, Php 240

Pitstop Guimaras Blend, Short, Php 80 (left) and Mango Ketchup (right)

It was strange (fruity and cheesy!) at first bite but I quickly grew to like it. And like a race car driver, I blazed through the pizza like Lightning McQueen! Okay, 2/3 thru, my tank was already full, so Mater slowly towed 1/3 of the pizza under his hood and leisurely sipped his Pitstop Guimaras blend (calamansi, orange, and cucumber juice).

On my next pitstop, I shall try Pitstop Restaurant's other mango dishes: chicken/pork mango adobo dish, fish fillet with mango sauce, mango bangus sisig, mango beef bulalo, and chicken mango curry. After that, you can call me Lightning Mangoeen.

Just so you know: The Pitstop Restaurant was born in Guimaras, the "home of the sweetest mangoes." The Pitstop Restaurant now has four branches in Guimaras.


  1. Such a fun read! I missed reading your blogs, pigstachio! I've been away too long. Haha. I've noticed this quirky place but didn't expect them to be that interesting. Good catch! I'm not sure I'd like mango pizza though :))

    Babe for Food - your BFF in Cebu dining! :)

    1. Yay! You're alive! You have been missing in action for most of 2014! I miss reading your blog.

      The interiors are interesting. I think my nephew would like it there because he loves cars! And yup, mango pizza is not for everyone! :D

  2. Hi mustachio I loved reading your posts! I see we're in the same niche and I'd like to get to know people in this circle as I'm still starting out! :) check my page and hopefully share it to others in your circle as well. I'd reaaaaalllyyyy appreciate it :)

    1. Hello jdgalz, thank you very much for reading my blog. Welcome to blogging, where you can write anything you want :D

  3. I didn't know The Pitstop has a branch in Cebu. I thought it can only be found in Guimaras. We dined here before going back to Manila. Love the mango pizza as well. I was skeptical about it at first but the flavors and texture in the pizza turned out to be just perfect.

    1. Thanks for dropping by. Now I am craving for mango pizza :-P~~~
