I’ve took a mini hiatus from blogging because of my Davao trip. I just got back and I can’t wait to share the photos I’ve accumulated for you! I really love food and I want this blog to feature other things that I love other than makeup. :) This post will be photo heavy and I’ll be throwing in my comments here and there. It was really hard to take photos of all the food I ate because we were travelling in a group of 18 and I would have run out of food to eat if I stopped to take photos of all the food I ate. ha ha!
tuna from yellow fin restaurant
The restaurant used to be “tiny” but it becamed a full blown restaurant through the years because of its popularity in the city. The owner of the restaurant cooks the dishes himself! :)
This is supposed to be penne pasta (they ran out of penne pasta) with tomatoes, chorizo, and a thick cheese sauce. The pasta was a bit too cheesy for me and I couldn’t taste the flavor of the chorizo anymore. It was still enjoyable though! :)
*I’m a HUGE fan of parmesan cheese and I was disappointed to have been told that they did not have parmesan cheese when I asked for it.
Paella Valenciana. the star of the night. it was packed with meat and the rice was very scrumptious. :)
osso bucco. I wasn’t able to try this out.
Kalderata. It’s a straight forward home-cooked meal that will remind you of your mother’s cooking.
Canelloni Pasta. This dish was quite a disappointment. It lacked flavor and the sauce was very dry.
They have a wide selection of cakes and pastries! The sight sent me straight to pastry heaven! <3
Caramel Cheesecake. My pick for the night. It was delicious! I loved the crust. :)
My mom’s pick: dulce de leche cheesecake. I wish there was more yema in this….
This was meh. I LOVE anything red velvet so I know my red velvet well. This was a tad bit too dry and it lacked cream cheese icing.
ooey gooey chocolate oatmeal bars! now this was a delight!
What I had for breakfast in one sitting:
We stayed at Marco Polo Hotel by the way and I have to say, my breakfast meals were the best meals I had in Davao! They have such a huuuuuge selection of food to choose from and the service was impeccable.
i made my own waffles!
super duper sweet pineapples. <3
I tried the “banana nuts” flavor and it was really good! I wish it was more creamy though! :)
our last dinner was at the Outback Grill (completely different one from the Outback we have here in Manila). The ribs were very good. They were served with unlimited rice. I only had one cup of rice because one cup of their rice is like two cups of rice! I wasn’t able to take photos of the other food because the people I was with attacked the food the moment they were placed on our table. hahaha!
My breakfast on our last day in Davao:
that’s it for now! I’m back in Manila and in dire need of exercise but I found out from my trainer that the gym will be closed tomorrow. <//3 Oh well papel (HAHAHA I LOVE SAYING THIS RIGHT NOW)! Where are you guys going this summer? :)
