Bangkok Wok is now 2 years old, and to celebrate their second anniversary, they have come up with a special deal — Wok All You Can! Instead of a buffet spread, Bangkok Wok lets you order from a special menu as much as you can. This means that your food will always be freshly cooked, [...]
In Davao City, I go for the Cheesy Hungarian Sausage or the Spicy Frankfurter by Hero Sausages. At present, they have one foodcart inside NCCC Mall, at the Activity Center just outside the supermarket section. It’s one out of many food stalls in the mall, but it’s what I seek out because their sausage sandwiches are satisfyingly good and filling.
Of all the eat-all-you-can-crab buffet restaurants that have sprouted all over Davao City, Let’s Crab Eat! is one of the best in town. They serve crab in two types of sauce: Szechuan and Sate. Personally, I prefer the former — the taste is more agreeable and the crab meat is still moist. The Sate Crab [...]
I’m loving the new in-house app on Facebook called Questions. As soon as I saw it on my account, I ran a couple of polls for Davao Delicious and, as a coffee lover, one of the first ones I did was for the best coffee shop in the city. Here’s the result after 138 votes: [...]

There are probably hundreds of varieties of kinilaw — varying in preparation, ingredients, etc. — and these differences are usually influenced by geography. The basic kinilaw is made with raw fish and vinegar. But even that has its variations, in [...]
The first time I had the chance to taste Richie Ferrazzini‘s Paella Negra was way back in 2008, when his open-air restaurant was called “My Brother’s Kitchen”. It was superb! I didn’t blog about it then, since the friends who brought me there, Mandy Dinglasan and Maej Villanueva, told me it was a mostly by-invitation-only [...]
Here’s a recipe for the venerable Nilagang Baka. This soup dish is a mainstay in many Filipino homes, and serves as a base for other dishes, such as the tastier Pochero. Speaking of which, it’s interesting to note that in Cebu (and probably other places in the Visayas), they make pochero without tomato sauce. This [...]

This means that you can now apply filters to your search: by type of cuisine, by general location, and by category. For example, if you’d like to know which coffee shops in downtown Davao offer [...]
