Who doesn’t love crispy catfish? I know I do. Here’s a new way to enjoy it, as an appetizer.
Crispy Catfish with Green Mango Salad by Tio Cococ’s Bar and Restaurant
Tio Cococ’s Bar and Restaurant serves Thai and Filipino dishes, as well fusion Asian dishes.
A great way to start off your Tio Cococ’s meal is with the Crispy Catfish with Green Mango Salad. The catfish is flaked and deep fried until crispy. It is topped with salty fried peanuts for that Thai flavor. The catfish is savory and salty but not greasy at all.

“Mouth amuser”… this is what “amuse-bouche” literally means. And my mouth was certainly amused by this delectable dish served by The White House Fusion Cuisine and Wine Lounge.

It is served by the chef to his selected guests. It serves to showcase the skills and expertise of the chef and whet the appetite of his guest in a single bite.

Fiesta Sorpresa played host to participants of the famed Davao Food Appreciation Tour 2013. It was their second time to do so and once again, they didn’t disappoint.
They served old and new favorites, all Filipino dishes, all prepared and served perfectly.
Here are some of my favorites from Fiesta Sorpresa:
Fiesta Sorpresa Lumpia
The Fiesta Sorpresa Lumpia is a great way to start your meal. It also goes well with rice or as a side dish to Fiesta Sorpresa’s other dishes. They also serve up a fabulous Lumpiang Sariwa which can be eaten as an appetizer, a snack item, or a healthy wholesome meal.

Japanese food is not Japanese food without the raw seafood, right? Hmmm… not really. If you want to try some maki without venturing into the “scary” world of raw seafood, give the Crazy Maki a try.

People would probably think that good food is hard to find in Mindanao. Time and time again, we have proven them wrong. Here’s another restaurant that deliver great food in the south: La Vetta Restaurant and Wine Bar in Cagayan de Oro City. I had the pleasure of eating at La Vetta Restaurant and it was a totally enjoyable experience.
La Vetta Pasta Al Salmone
My friend Kym and I weren’t even supposed to eat there but the restaurant we had planned to go to had transferred to a different location, so we decided to try out La Vetta. And I am happy that we did.
La Vetta has a cozy, quiet ambiance perfect for intimate meals. They serve French, Italian, Mediterranean, and other European dishes. Their dishes might seem bit pricey but every peso you spend here is definitely worth it.
