Davao is not Davao without Sun, warm peaople, Afternoon Rains and FOOD. Did I happen to mention Delicious food?
Whoa. Mom got so mad can she blame me? Davao food is hard to resist. No, don't eat grilled everyday. Even Davaoenios have sophisticated taste.
Here's where I've been:
Day 1 Arrival: Hanoi in Abreeza for some crabs and spareribs. Hanoi is a Vietnamese Restaurant created by my Tita and Tito. I'm not biased. The food is really good.
In the evening, a version of gourmet Sinigang in the house.
Day 2 Roaming Around Day: Lunch at Eden, Mirienda at McDo and Wedding Eve Dinner.
Eden is a man-made forest. They have tours and fresh buffet food.
Day 3 The Wedding day: My cousin's wedding day. Catered food but forgot by whom. Cocktails by Tsuru. Tsuru is Japanese food here in Davao. It's #1 here.
Day 4 Girl's Day Out: Lunch/Mirienda at Picobello, the best pizza in Davao. Apart from the stone oven they boast, Picobello also boasts buy 1 take 1 pizza (2-5pm) I love their Calzone!
Day 5 Talicud Trip: Ate at an unamed resort. Yup, no name. No signage. Just a patch of beach front with a lot of benches and bamboo table. They served Adobo chicken made of free-range native chicken. Dinner at Tsuru Main branch (they have 3). Ate Gyudon. Yum! Thinly sliced beef with egg and rice. Love it. I also love the Miso Soup!
Day 6 Visit other side relatives: Fish lunch at house and Dinner at Lachi's. What a name right? Lachi's. Well, what cakes too!
Tasted 3 cakes: Black and white Brownies, NY cheese cake and creme brule cake. Heaven and affordable too!
That night was a celebration for Tita Didit's Bday! We ate at Selera and had drinks afterwards.
Day 8 Little Girls Day: Baby sitted young nieces, lunch at home with some pasta and dunking donuts. Dinner at Apo View Hotel for Hijos de Davao. We magiced ourseves away and went to Brewery for some drinks with Joan and her friends. Was so hammered with Tequila Rose (2 cups) and Vodka
(approx 3 and 1/2 cups). Wuuuuuh!
Day 9 Tsuru Buffet: Tsuru has buffet every 15th and 30th. Tourists who come to Davao must go and fatten up with Jap food. It's worth 599. Even if you just eat sashimi. Very fresh! Record: 5 plates. That would be 11 makis, 9 tempuras, chicken lolipop, gyoza, dessert and more. Can't really keep track. SO much food!
Dinner at Coc's in F. Torres at 4pm to sawa. So full!
Davaowenios might not shop a lot but they sure EAT a lot! Yet, I can't find many big peeps here. Must be the fresh food and most especially the mineralized water that comes out of the tap. Super safe!
