This Cebu Rest Stop Promises Great Food And Views

Motorists in Cebu will soon be able to enjoy food and a view at this nautical-inspired rest stop at the Cebu Cordova Link Expressway or CCLEX.

The MVP-led Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation and its subsidiaries Cebu Cordova Link Expressway Corporation (CCLEC) and MPT Mobility have broken ground on CCLEX Drive & Dine, a 5,580-square meter, three-storey food hub located along the CCLEX.

“We are very excited about this new additional development in CCLEX. The mission has always been to create a better travel experience for motorists and travelers in Cebu, and CCLEX Drive & Dine is the next big step to improving it further,” said Allan G. Alfon, President and General Manager of Cebu Cordova Link Expressway Corporation (CCLEC), and MPT Mobility Regional Head.

CCLEX Drive & Dine is set to follow the footsteps of NLEX Drive & Dine, MPT Mobility’s commercial dining and retail facility located along the North Luzon Expressway.

With its strategic proximity between Cebu City and Cordova, CCLEX Drive & Dine is poised to contribute greatly to the dining culture in Metro Cebu, offering a gateway to the unique flavors of Cebu’s cultural scene. Like NLEX Drive & Dine, locals and tourists of Cebu can expect an impressive line-up of food service partners.

To make CCLEX Drive & Dine stand out even more, it considers both innovation and green development, putting emphasis on green spaces around its structure to complement CCLEX’s sustainable design while respecting the magnificent and breathtaking view of the Mactan Channel and Cordova Channel.

“The [original idea] was to make a service facility more than simply functional, and the overwhelmingly positive response tells us that we are on the right track in building something that would enrich the current experience and create a whole new dimension of it in the process,” Ticzon says. “The first concept informed us of what is possible.”

The CCLEX Drive & Dine also promises a step away from the ordinary—a complete reset of what travelers have come to expect on the road.

As world-class design meets the best of what Cebu has to offer, this project is set to become a dining destination, adapted to suit local tastes, and highlight what makes Cebu distinct.

“The Queen City of the South takes her food seriously, and food can be such an excellent representation of the culture it stems from,” said Ticzon. “This is what guides our plans for the dining scene at CCLEX Drive & Dine.”

CCLEX Drive & Dine, which is targeted to open in the middle of 2024, promises not only a rest stop for travelers, but also a wide array of services to provide comfort and convenience.
