Mediterranean Indulgence at Zabadani Cafe and Restaurant

Disclaimer: This is the full feature from my The Royal Chef column on Edge Davao

Sometimes, you need to accept change and make the most out of it. For one, change is but the only constant thing there is. If you restrict the presence of change, you’d soon find yourself trapped in a realm that even you can’t escape from.

Just like when you crave for something out of the ordinary. Better to expect the unexpected than dwell on what you are used to. Sometimes, it’s the pop of uncertainty that makes the whole experience something to look forward to.

If the usual dishes bore you, then make Zabadani Cafe Restaurant your place to be. For one, their menu is Middle-Eastern inspired hence the unusual aroma, taste and texture you can’t find elsewhere. Aside from it being a dining destination, it is an adventure on its own. The food and the taste is already an adventure on its own.

Zabadani has always been a favorite destination. It’s quiet, clean and perfect for a non-pork eater like me. It’s not everyday that you stumble upon an establishment that is Halal and offers a different flare of flavours and textures on the dishes they serve. What’s more, it is at Zabadani that you get to enjoy a serene dining experience unlike any other.

Here, it is not just about the food. The place itself is very inviting and the staff are always on a happy and welcoming mood. From the moment you arrive until the very second you leave, they’d make sure that you are smiling from ear to ear.

This festive month of March (HAPPY ARAW NG DABAW everyone!), why not take some off of your schedule and indulge in a foodie spree only Zabadani can offer. Aside from their usual menu, they are now serving their best sellers – buffet style.
