It's been raining here in Davao and this cuddle weather makes me crave for suman at sikwate. To those who don't have any idea about it, suman is a popular delicacy here in the Philippines, which is made up of glutinous rice wrapped in leaves and cooked in coconut milk. It is usually served sprinkled with sugar and best served with sikwate, the Cebuano version of hot chocolate. 



I had this photo taken during my trip to Buda last summer with my blogger friends. We dropped off at the Seagull Mountain Resort, which had the best suman + sikwate I've tried so far. My standard is quite high when it comes to suman, but this one got me asking for another serving. In fact, I wouldn't really mind travelling back again to Seagull just to have a fill of these because it's really worth the distance and the calories. 

Have you tried the suman at sikwate at Seagull Mountain Resort?




Every time I go on travel, one thing I really look forward to is to taste the delights that a particular place has to offer. It is not everyday that we get to chance to grab a bite of these specialties since not all of them are readily available in local restaurants. So when it is my first time to set foot on a place, indulging on the city's best food is always on my bucket list.


So when I heard about Archipelago 7107 by Barrio Fiesta, I felt really ecstatic to try this new restaurant at SM Lanang Premier considering that I do not need to hop on a plane or a bus to explore on dishes boasted by different places in the Philippines. Archipelago 7107's concept of bringing selected authentic recipes from the north, south and anywhere between the 7107 islands under one menu is definitely a brilliant idea.


Archipelago 7107 is actually a part of the Barrio Fiesta chain of restaurants. Its ambiance is causal and chic and perfect for families wanting to dine out and celebrate or professionals wanting to unwind after a day at work. Its first branch in Davao located at SM Lanang Premier also serves the famous and loved Barrio Fiesta recipes like Crispy Pata and Kare-Kare.

After having a feast for brunch at Fiesta Sorpresa for the 2nd day of the DFAT 2013 adventure, we again travel for approximately 1-2 hours to conquer one of Southern Mindanao's hidden treasures, the Little Boracay at Sta. Maria, Davao del Sur.

It was my first time to set foot on the place. I have been wanting to go to this place but feedback about not having that much accessible transportation hindered me from embarking on an adventure. However, the road was pretty fine except that you really need to hire a private transportation for a hassle-free adventure. But trust me, this place is worth it!

In Little Boracay, we were treated to a buffet of fresh catch from the beautiful and serene deep blue sea.

Good morning foodies!

I have finished sharing about the first day of the DFAT 2013 and now we're off to the 2nd day. The 2nd day was a bit exciting than the first one because we're off to a place not so far away from Davao to discover dining places that will surely give you a great gastronomic adventure even when you're away from home.

Our first stop for the 2nd day is at Fiesta Sorpresa in Digos City, Davao del Sur. Yes indeed, we traveled 45 minutes to 1 hour to get our tummies filled with their delightful and savory offerings. It is located in the heart of Digos and specializes in offering Filipino classic fiesta dishes. During the DFAT 2013, Fiesta Sorpresa treated us to a sumptuous brunch - a very good way to energize us after traveling.

Here's what we had for brunch which is actually more than enough to feed a hungry lion (like me):
Binagoongang Bagnet
Garlic Fried Chicken
Sizzling Stuffed Squid
