  • Fresh Seafood

    The ambience is cozy, you will feel that you are in the local area. It was fully packed, we have to stand up after our dinner to give way to new comers. Tuna kilawin is like tuna sashimi but in vinegar. The tinolang isda with "kulot-kulot" is intriguing but the "Kulot-kulot" was not available, we ordered it just the same, with same price. Our...

    This is one of the outlets located on Jack's Ridge - the recommended hangout location for people who'd like to see the gorgeous mountaintop view of Davao City. Best to go here in the evening.However, don't expect anything extraordinary about Taklobo's dishes. The grilled squid was just fine, nothing special. I ordered the suha (pomelo) shake,...

    Humberto's (hotel) cafe at the ground floor has a fantastic view of 2 cross road streets. If you have a lazy day ahead, cradling your morning coffee, or merely resting your eyes for too much staring at your laptop (yes, they have wifi), it's fun to watch people and generally observe life go by in this busy yet lazy street.Though Asian by theme, the...

  • Heavy on The Stomache, Light On The...

    They pioneered the "rice smorgasbord" in barbeque chains throughout Davao leading to the monicker, "All you KANIN eat!" (kanin = rice). Since rice is cheap in The Philippines, this hasn't led them to bankruptcy, even when 200-pound athletes in hoards come rushing into this open-air barbeque restaurant. Needless to say, their specialty is, well,...

  • Hawker Stalls @ Hawker Prices

    When you've already gone to all the major restaurants and tourist attractions in Davao, it's time to get down and dirty (literally) with teh real deal. Comfort and Michelin standards aside, this strip is one Davao's best-kept secrets (or at least to the ignoramus) and it's been in existence for as long as I can remember (in my 19 years at least)....

    Picobello serves the best pizzas in Davao, straight from their own brick oven - cooked, the authentic Italian way. The slightly charred edges and bottom of the pizzas are only evidence of its authentic charm. There are about ten pizza choices on the menu (and I've practically memorized most of it) - Margherita (plain cheese), Napoletana (plain...

  • Cheap great steak

    The restaurant is actaully the front of a house located in Ma-a. Rumor has it that the chef used to work in a hi-end restaurant in Davao and decided to put up his own steakhouse, complete with the hotel lounge music. They only serve lunch though, so you better go there around 1130 for you to be able to get a table. There's no airconditioning but...

  • Overrated!!

    We visited Jack's Ride expecting a great view of the city and all the great things posted on this site. Well let me tell you, they're all overrated! The seating is disorganized. There's no hostess waiting for you at the hostess's table. Then basically it's a free for all for all the tables. You have to shout for the waiter to get your orders....

  • Davao's Inato

    If Bacolod has chicken inasal, Davao has chicken inato. This restaurant is relatively new but already making a name for itself. The "house-like" structure looks homey and the big, open windows let the air flows inside (although with the street nearby, I can't guarantee that the air is fresh). What's more, you could eat with your hands or...
