Forty-Clove Chicken by Alor's Home Kitchen

One can never go wrong with olive oil and garlic. All things cooked in olive oil and garlic taste great. So when I saw Forty-Clove Chicken on the menu of Alor’s Home Kitchen, I got excited. The dish description definitely made me salivate even more: “Pan-roasted chicken in olive oil with garlic and potato slivers served with rice.” Mmm…

When it was served before me, it certainly didn’t disappoint. The chicken meat was tender and juicy with the skin a bit crispy and very savory. The garlic was deliciously good and it complemented the chicken very well. The potato slivers echoed the same savory herb taste of the chicken and the garlic cloves. DELISH!

You can taste this memorable chicken dish at Alor’s Home Kitchen, a Davao restaurant. Other highly recommended dishes are the Heirloom Chicken Ring, the Golden Rolls, the Shrimp Gratin, and the Angus Roast Beef. And do try their desserts.

Baked Scallops by Lyndon's

Davao City is known for for serving good food, especially fresh seafood at affordable prices. However, there are some seafood which are not readily available in Davao. One of this is scallops, a delicious, tender seashell that can a spectacular appetizer or main dish, if prepared well.

One of the few restaurants here in Davao that serve delicious scallops at affordable prices is Lyndon’s Worst Ribs and Awful Chicken. Lyndon’s serves scallops in a variety of ways but my favorite is Baked Scallops. Anybody who loves butter, cheese, and garlic would agree with me.

The scallops are tender and the combinations of butter, cheese, and garlic complement the meat well. And the baking process doesn’t overcook or dry out the scallops. Delicious!

It’s a great way to whet your appetite for Lyndon’s variety of appetizers. But if you’re a seafood lover like me, you can gobble up an entire plate as an entire meal with a whole lot of rice. Thinking about it makes me salivate and want to have it.

Have yourself some delectable baked scallops from Lyndon’s. And understand what I mean when I say it’s delicious and memorable.

Lyndon’s Worst Ribs and Awful Chicken is located at Wheels n More Compound, JP Laurel Avenue, Davao City.

Salted Egg Crabs by Emperor’s Palace

Salted Egg Crabs by Emperor's Palace

I love seafood and I love salted eggs. So when my cousins posted a picture of crabs prepared with salted eggs, I got excited. I got even more excited when they told me it tasted great.

I watched a feature on the Lifestyle Network and saw that this type of preparation of crabs is popular in Singapore. The guy said that it’s a very rich dish so one should eat it maybe just once a year.

I finally got to taste this interesting combination when we ate at Emperor’s Palace. It certainly didn’t disappoint my palate.

The fat crabs were generously coated with salted egg mixture which gave a burst of flavor and a delightful texture which contrasted well with the tender and delicate crab meat. The crab fat and the salted egg yolk complemented each other so well. The grainy texture of the salted egg mixture contrasted well with the soft crab meat. The dish also had a hint of sweetness. It was a good marriage of flavors and textures. It’s a deliciously sinful way to enjoy crabs.

Unfortunately, I already ate this dish twice. It’s bad for dieters but very good for seafood lovers and foodies, in general. I think it’s worth every calorie because it is so delicious. I am already salivating just thinking about it. YUM! It’s definitely a must-try for any seafood lover.

EMPEROR’S PALACE is located at the Victoria Plaza Compound along JP Laurel Avenue in Bajada, Davao City.

Ranchero’s Baby Back Ribs

Baby Back Ribs by Ranchero

Baby back ribs are not like other pork ribs or spare ribs. Baby back ribs, if done or labelled correctly, are from the top of the rib cage between the spine and spare ribs. These are taken from adult pigs, not baby pigs as one would think. Baby back ribs are liked by a lot of people because it is meaty. It has a lot of meat on top of the bones and in between the bones.

Pork is tricky to cook as it cannot be served undercooked or raw. Absolutely not. Undercooked pork can cause food poisoning. On the other hand, overcooking it will cause the meat to be dry and tough. So it’s hard to find good pork dishes that are delicious and perfectly cooked.

It is not wonder that restaurants, such as Ranchero, who cook their pork so delicious and perfectly right instantly gain good following. The dish that made Ranchero popular in both General Santos City and Davao City is its impeccable Baby Back Ribs. It’s cooked just right, tender, juicy, tasty, and served with extra servings of savory, smoky barbeque sauce. Just thinking about it makes me hungry.

Give your taste buds and your tummy a good treat and head on to Rancher to try out their best-seller, the Baby Back Ribs. And while you’re there, you might want to try my personal favorite… Garlic Chicken!
