Davao has an abundance of gastronomic places that will surely make you say goodbye to your calorie count – even for a while. For me, it’s the unexpected palate adventure, shared with family and friends that is most memorable.
Personally, I am not one to finish a dish. I eat, yes, but I also would want to taste everything. Again, I am after the sensation it gives me more than anything else. For me, an adventure is a mix and match of food combinations that leaves a lasting impression that should matter. I don’t know about you but that is just me.
Anyway, here’s some additions to my list of favourites. These are restaurants that I have frequented and food finds that have always made me smile. Recounting with them is like finding out that demigods or half-gods really do exist (and yes, I am a bookworm!).
Roadhouse @ Sm City Davao
I have loved them and will always remain a favourite dining place when craving for something comforting. From their menu, I find myself always craving for their CRISPY SHRIMPS. Again, despite the allergies, I managed to sit through the itch and eat some crispy shrimps. The crunch is impeccable thus giving another texture to the dish. Also, their summer drinks (personal fave: DUHAT!) is a delectably refreshing.
The French Baker @ SM Lanang Premier
My love for this happy Parisian shop is imminent. Their breads and sandwiches never fails to make me smile. I love how they serve their coffee – packed and aromatic. Of their many savoury dishes, I love their Chicken Croissant Sandwich and Whole Wheat Tuna Sandwich.
ChaTime @ SM Lanang Premier
This is my mom’s favourite (belated Happy Mother’s Day and I love you!). She loves that you can adjust the sugar content and keep a tangy sensation on fruit choices. Same with her, I am more of a fruit mix fan but have also begun a relationship with their milk tea. My favourite: Honey Milk Tea.
Polo Bistro @ The Marco Polo Davao
Aside from their inviting pool and a view to match, I also adore their many food choices. Of them, I have fallen in love with their SEAFOOD Kabab and pizza. The kabab is packed with deliciously grilled seafood pieces and vegetable bites. On the other hand, the pizza is alwayscooked just right to the bite.
