Durian Sans Rival by Lachis Sans Rival Atbp

Davao is a haven for fruit lovers. And one of the most popular fruits that Davao is known for is of course, Durian. Durian is the “King of Fruits,” it has a creamy flesh, a bittersweet flavor, all masked by a funky smell. Depending on the variety, the flesh can be milky, sweet, bitter, or any combination of the three. It’s deliciously decadent, but most people are turned off by its strong pungent smell. As some people would say, it “smells like hell but tastes like heaven.”

Enter Durian Sans Rival.

Yellow Fin Seafood Restaurant is one of the best known Filipino seafood restaurants in Davao. Their best-sellers include the Kinilaw, the Tuna Laing, the Greaseless Fried Chicken, and various tuna dishes. After all, the restaurant is named after the most popular tuna species, the Yellow Fin Tuna.

One of their unique must-try tuna dishes is the Adobong Tuna Buntot. I usually like my fish raw, fried, grilled, baked, or otherwise prepared dry. Not in a soup or stew, but this one I highly recommend.
