One of the trends in the Davao food scene right now is serving healthy and farm fresh dishes. This is no surprise with the abundance of deliciously fresh produce and meats in Davao. One of the restaurants in the forefront of promoting healthy, farm fresh, and chemical dishes is Balik Bukid Farm and Kitchen. They use only chemical free and farm fresh ingredients. And they make most of their dish components from scratch… from breads to ice cream.
Balik Bukid literally means “back to the farm,” and this is the starting point of the conception of the Balik Bukid Farm and Kitchen Restaurant. Most of their dishes are designed to highlight the produce of their own farm. The availability of their menu items depend on the availability of ingredients from their own farm and their handpicked suppliers.
The Balik Bukid experience is one of going back to the roots of Filipino cuisine… fresh abundant produce and various meats prepared and cooked in a different cooking processes with indigenous, Spanish, Chinese, and Western influences.
Start off your Balik Bukid experience with some freshly baked bread paired with locally-made cheese.
Balik Bukid’s centerpiece, I think, are their salads. Each salad is different with different fresh veggies, meat, and doused with healthy, wholesome, and delicious dressings.
