Big Serving for Big Eaters - Dining at SUMO SAM

It's been a while since I was last been here.  After two days of hibernating at home during the Holy Week I decided to go to SM Lanang Premier late in the afternoon to escape the scorching heat of summer.  With me was my mom, two nieces, their yaya and Dave. When we entered the mall, the cool breeze of air-conditioning was a soothing welcome.  We roamed around for a while, with no intentions of buying anything, until we feel a pain in our stomach.  It's time to look for a place to have dinner.

A Wonderful Dining Experience at Don Beppe Ristorante Italiano

Boun Appetito!!! is the Italian counterpart of saying "Bon Appetit" or "enjoy your meal" and we did. Don Beppe Ristorante Italiano has been here quite a while at "The Peak" a rooftop food haven of Gaisano Mall Davao. This is one place where one can relax & dine after a tiring day of shopping, watching movie or just walking around to cool yourself from the hot tropical climate outside.

A Place Worth Finding - Belito's Vineyard

It's location is not in the main streets of Davao City, the place is actually sitting inconspicuously along Palm Drive (a secondary road usually used to avoid the heavy traffic at the main street).  Not only that, you won't find any distinct facade nor big signboard to lead you to this cloistered restaurant. You will know that you are in the right place when you see a small placard that stands along the road (not even big enough to get your attention).

A Pleasurable Place to Celebrate and Unwind - Piyesta KTV and Restobar

I've been to this place several times already, since it opened at SM City Davao Annex last year, but haven't been to their KTV rooms. It was our friend Chin-chin's birthday and she treated us for dinner and videoke at Piyesta KTV and Restobar.

Smokin' Grill at Sito's Family Restaurant

Barely a year old yet this new fast-food restaurant is already picking up. Just like a popular Filipino proverb that goes like "Huli man daw at magaling, naihahabol din" (it is never too late to offer anything that is good). Dining in Davao has never been like in the past anymore where choices are few and eating out was just for those who can afford. With the rapid developments going on around Davao City, and never failed to overwhelm DavaeƱos, dining places are also sprouting like mushroom everywhere. And these delights everyone: the rich, the poor, the foodies and those that likes to hangout.

A Perfect Chinese and Seafood Dining at Lotus Court (Marco Polo Hotel)

I've been to Marco Polo Davao several times, but this was my first time to dine at Lotus Court. I was invited by my friend Janet for her post birthday celebration and since most of us were Chinese food and seafood dishes lovers, and the perfect place to celebrate was at the Lotus Court Restaurant of Marco Polo Davao with their Cantonese and Seafood Buffet.

Paella, Pasta and Lengua at Tiny Kitchen Davao

We saw this place when Dave and I ate at one of the restaurants across the street along F. Torres Davao City. It used to be located two blocks away from this present location in a really tiny nook besides Cafe Demitasse and One Fab Pooch . The new location is now bigger and can accommodate many guest.
