Day 2 of DFAT’s theme is Fiesta because of the restaurants we visited on that day both had the word Fiesta on their titles.
We started our second day with disappointment, each Taps (my favorite breakfast place in Davao) that we went to were closed so we ended up in Mcdonald’s at Matina Square. So left with no choice, I ordered my typical Mcdo breakfast: Sausage Mcmuffin Meal with hash brown and Iced Coffee. After breakfast we left Davao City and headed to Davao del Sur. We were scheduled to have our lunch at Fiesta Sorpresa at Digos City. Read more »
Most of the Korean restaurants here in Manila are usually set up by Koreans who decided to stay in the country permanently. However, it is seldom that a Korean restaurant chain is brought here. Sariwon Korean Barbeque, I believe, is the first Korean restaurant has just recently opened its first branch in Metro Manila. It is at the heart of the posh dining district near the Bonifacio High Street. Thus, I guess you can already gauge how much this would cost if you dine here . Well, Sariwon is considered fine dining in Korea. Read more »

I have many blogger friends who have been to Lachi’s and all I could hear from them is that their food is really good. The nearest thing that I was able to taste was only their best selling Sans Rival.

Our table was filled with plates of their dishes. I think they served us almost half of their entire menu. This was the start of gluttony in DFAT. Read more »
It was my first time to learn more about OB Montessori as the culinary art school when I got the chance to attend the launch of Istituto Culinario and Brasserie Cicou last February. I learned that OB Montessori has a farm and botanical garden in Alfonso, Cavite which is where they get their fresh produce to supply their needs in the school. They have a Brasserie Cicou which serves European cuisine and also were students of Istituto Culinario have their internship program. So basically, OB Montessori is a culinary art school, gets their fresh produce from their farm and they have a restaurant where culinary interns practice before working in the “real world”. A pretty wholistic approach, right?

On our first day at DFAT (Davao Food Appreciation Tour), we had our afternoon snack at Ranchero. It was a typical Filipino merienda where we had some pancit bihon, fried and fresh lumpia, dinuguan with puto and some sweet local delicacies. I remember when I was still working in an office in Makati City, I would either have some pancit bihon or fried lumpia as an afternoon snack a few hours before my work in the office ends. Read more »
