“I’m most excited to learn who the winners are, and of course, I’ll get to taste the best food that Cebu has to offer all in one place! Best of Cebu gets better and better each year, so I know this year would be even more epic.”

“For years, Sunstar’s Best of Cebu party has surely made a reputation of being the culmination of the best that Cebu has to offer. What I’m excited about for this year is seeing the familiar brands that remain on top of the list especially in the category of beauty and wellness, food and drinks, and rest and recreation, as well as some of the up and coming brands that made it to the hall of fame this year.”

“The Best of Cebu is a great venue to showcase what the city has to offer. It’s an event that we really look forward to every year. I’m excited to try different dishes and discover new establishments to visit.”

“This year’s Best of Cebu party comes when public choice is stronger and more expressive than ever albeit, not necessarily the yardstick for the selection of the best. The SunStar Best of Cebu allows food and services to tell their own truth. It raises the issues and encouraged competitiveness among players resulting to a tactile and a more mindful industry. It is a campaign that Cebu needs. Ultimately, Cebuanos will be more informed with their choices.”

“Staying true to its name, SunStar’s Best of Cebu party is a celebration of all things this vibrant island has to offer. I’m excited to check out the new winners, those fresh names that have stood out and surprised the usual roster, and the Grand Slam awardees that have sealed a mark in their respective categories. Paired with great music, good food, and unlimited booze, this year’s BoC party is anything and everything that makes Cebu one of the best islands.”
