The annual key events for Cebu’s Sinulog or the Fiesta Señor have been canceled this year amid the still prevailing COVID-19 pandemic.
While Cebuanos were restricted from holding the anticipated grand parade because of mass gathering restrictions, they can still take the party to the dining table in the comfort of their homes this month with food deals they can enjoy via a delivery service app.
Over a hundred restaurants and food establishments joined the celebration and are offering discounts of 20% and up on Foodpanda. New users can use the code “PINKSINULOG” that gives them P50 off on the first three orders with a minimum order value of P149 until the end of the month.
