Dampa Davao Food Tasting

Dampa Davao Food Tasting
Last week, Dampa Davao invited the Davao Bloggers to a food tasting event. It is near the Bangko Central ng Pilipinas. The ambiance is very welcoming. Dampa (in Philippines) means a hut or "more of a nipa hut, to be exact". This restaurant promotes Filipino ambiance to its customers. The design on its front looks like there is a fiesta (or feast) that is happening there. It has also parking area on its front that is reserved for its costumers.

According to the waiter who was serving us, this Dampa Davao Tiongko Avenue branch opened somewhere in December 10, 2014 and here it is. The picture below is what it looks like on its front.

They offer lechong manok in which I have forgotten to look for the price but it really tastes good. I love its aroma and its mouth-watering smell.

These days, coffee shops are too mainstream. How about trying Cake shops? When you visit Davao there are a lot of coffee shops anywhere and worth a try. It happened to be I had visited this Cake Gallerie whose products are very yummy in an affordable price! It is a business from Davao which is home-based.

Last week, we visited Cake Gallerie. It is found in Matina, Davao City. I didn't expect it to be this perfect. It is a shop that was built in front of the owner's house. The ambiance is perfect for studying since the background music is really nice and isn't disturbing. The prices are really affordable. The chocolate mousse cake that I bought is more or less Php 58.00 while the Red Velvet cake is worth Php 68.00. Believe me, once you'll take a bite with this puffy creamy and coated with love cakes, you'd forgot your name for a second! This is perfect for family and friends bonding or you can also eat here alone. I'll recommend this to everyone.

This is what it looks like at the front. The ambiance from the outside seemed to be western. We had also talked to the very kind owner. She revealed that she was the one who cooked these delicious delights. She is a Culinary Arts graduate herself, too bad we didn't have a picture with her.

At the corner, there is a wooden divider which contains all the photos of the happy customers who were once been there. They also have this guest book wherein they let to let their customers to sign it up.

Food Trip: Krua Thai (Banana Grill) in Davao

Food Trip: Krua Thai (Banana Grill) in Davao
Hi once again. Today, I'm going to review Krua Thai restaurant (Banna Grill). This restaurant can be found at Metrolifestyle Complex F. Torres St. Cor E.Jacinto Ext., Davao City, 8000 Davao City. This is the only Thai restaurant here in Davao. It has a PayDay in which the dinner buffet will be at Php299.00. It really worth it! Anyway, when I entered the restaurant for the first time, the ambiance is welcoming, a Thai ambiance indeed. They have a very good customer service since they will accommodate you once you're in.

A thai cuisine usually consists of different flavors such as spicy, sour and sweet. I have also noticed that they love cashew nuts. They have cashes nuts in they rice and even at their viand. They also have this lemon grass juice. At first, I though it's just a normal drink. But at the first gulp, I was amazed with its after taste. It has a relaxing effect.

Please do click the image for a better resolution. 

This is so cute and I can't help myself to capture it.
I even love the way their spoon and forks are personalized.
