Pakû by Chef Binux — I first read the name as, well, “PAK-U”. I was later corrected by my friends by pointing out the diacritical mark on the u. As it turns out, the name of this new restaurant was pronounced as “Pa-ko”, which translates to wing in Bisaya and Hiligaynon. In this instance, it referred to as chicken wings.
And that’s exactly what Pakû by Chef Binux is all about– unlimited chicken wings. The second of its kind in Cebu and definitely something everyone will enjoy.
My friends at work wanted to eat chicken wings one day so we tried to look for near our office. Unfortunately, the restaurant we went to did not have wings available at that time so we had to push back our craving and settle for something else. I then started to look for other chicken wing options near the area and that’s when I found Pakû by Chef Binux, a newly opened place that served unli chicken wings and unli rice. So the next day, we decided to visit.

We decided to call ahead so they could prepare the chicken for us in advance. It was a short 5 minute walk from our office, one that was faced with excitement for something new. When we finally arrived at the restaurant, we were the only people around. The staff then handed us the menu and suggested they should bring out the 8 flavors first so we could pick the ones we wanted more of.
The store is the second establishment in Cebu that offers eat all you can chicken wings. Here is their menu:
Pakû Chicken Wings Flavors
This was the photo they shared on their Facebook page. Pretty enticing, right? Well, we were pretty disappointed too. I was really expecting each chicken wing to be smothered in the sauce they prepared it with. But instead, we were served the typical chicken wing deep fried and tossed with the sauce. They looked nothing like the picture. In fact, they looked the same– if not for the different taste you get when you consume each pako.
Don’t get me wrong– I enjoyed their chicken since it wasn’t dry. Pakû by Chef Binux could easily be on my top 3 favorite chicken wing spots in Cebu, especially since they offer unlimited chicken for a good price and had a number of options to choose from. It’s just that I was really expecting the chicken wings to have more sauce than the ones they came with.
Among the flavors, I particularly enjoyed BBQ, Mango Wasabi, and the Hot and Spicy. I think if there was more sauce on the other flavors, I would have been able to taste them more. I’m still looking forward to eating at Pakû once again since they ran out of Teriyaki flavor the previous night. My guess is that this is the bestseller? Can anyone confirm that?
Overall, Pakû chicken wings offers something new to the table. It’s affordable, unlimited, has a total of 8 flavors to choose from, and the meat on the chicken is not dry. If you’re looking for a new restaurant to enjoy chicken wings in Cebu, this is the place to be!
