Pueblo Mexicano: Your Mexican – Latin American Comfort Food Destination

Mexican restaurants back in 2010 in Cebu City were very scarce. This reason inspired current Pueblo Manager, Enzo Nable, to open a Burrito Bar, a small kiosk in Banilad Town Center, because of his cravings for tacos and burritos which he would eat on a weekly basis.
