Bukid Feels in the City at Arbor Farms

Arbor Farms Restaurant and Grape Farm

Davao City is a huge city with parts that can be considered rural. The southern parts of Davao are more residential than commercial but the area is dotted with agribusinesses that have dipped their toes into the restaurant industry. We enjoyed the food offerings of Pasol Mo Luto Ko at Lindo’s Farm on Valentine’s Day […]

Pasol Mo Luto Ko at Lindo’s Farm

Lindos Farm food

I think most would agree that fishing is a relaxing hobby year-round. Personally, I find it boring but my children take pleasure in catching fish so we do it whenever we find the chance. Fishing in the Philippines can be dangerous if done in open water and with a lack of experience. So for us […]

Lunch with a View at Popskie’s Davao

The last two years have been good to mom-and-pop-style businesses in Davao City. Landowners and homeowners opened their properties to the public, catering to the Dabawenyos’ ever-growing appetite for good food and relaxing ambiance. Popskie’s Davao is one such restaurant in suburban Davao. We came across this open-air cafe during one of our trips up […]

Malagos Garden Resort Restaurant Review

Malagos-Garden-Resort-Restaurant-plate 2

I’ve already talked about how much we loved Malagos Garden Resort and their Sunday Interactive Bird Show. The resort in the uptown area of Davao City is indeed a must-visit for first-time visitors and even locals who are looking for a quick escape from the busy city. But what about food? Guests can bring their […]

Golden Egg Restaurant, Davao City


When in Davao City and checking out the Philippine Eagle Center and other attractions in Baguio District, you should stop by one of the restaurants along the highway in Tugbok. My favorite is Golden Egg Restaurant. Golden Egg Restaurant is one of the many restaurants lined up in the highway serving hito (catfish) specialties. There […]

Probinsya Buffet: A Taste of Home

One of the most exciting activities when visiting Davao City is trying out the local cuisine. While the city does not have a distinct culinary specialty like the pancit molo of Iloilo or sisig of Pampanga, there is an abundance of dining places that serve excellent fare. If you’re looking for a good all-you-can eat […]

7 Must-Try Kapampangan Dishes

I’ve said countless times that a trip to the Philippines is a culinary adventure in itself. Aside from the stunning beaches and natural attractions, Filipino cuisine is gaining popularity among foodies worldwide. Kapampangan dishes, in particular, are becoming favorites. Every island in the Philippines has its own cuisine and that’s saying something considering there are […]

Punong Restaurant: A Seafood Lover’s Nirvana

Ginataang Alimango

Good food does not always come from top-rated Michelin star restaurants. Sometimes, you can find the best eats in unlikely places like that hole-in-the-wall eatery along a dimly-lit alley or a floating restaurant partially obscured from the road by a wall of mangrove trees. We discovered the latter on a very rainy morning on our […]
