NO PROBLEM in Mactan Island


The strong historical roots of Mactan Island, although still present, are very much in contrast with the numerous business establishments that continue to sprout on the island. But somewhere in between history and current economy stands something that both deviates from and blends with the two. Nothing to worry though, because there is definitely No Problem in Mactan Island’s Su-Tu-Kil.

No Problem Restaurant adopted the name since the previous employees of the restaurant would normally answer customers with “No Problem!” each time they ask for something, even just for a glass of water. Built way back in 1981 (meaning it will be celebrating it’s 30th year in 2011!) with “no roof, one table, one chair” as described by the mother of all Su-Tu-Kil (Sugba-Kilaw-Tula) business in Mactan Island, Mrs. Rosalinda T. Inihao. Today it has become bigger and better with other restaurants with the same concept are built side-by-side each other. This is of course, with No Problem Restaurant leading the pack.
