Angus Beef Stew by Dulce Vida Bakery + Resto

Angus Beef Stew Set by Dulce Vida

Angus Beef Stew Set by Dulce Vida

I love eating. That’s a fact. There’s nothing I love eating more than beef. And I like it best when prepared as a superb beef stew. Be it beef caldereta, boeuf bourguinon, beef pares, or even ox feet or ox tail stew… I love all forms and types of beef stew, for as long as it prepared well. The stew sauce should be thick and rich, the meat tender, the vegetables not limp and not overcooked, and everything cooked and seasoned properly.

The Angus Beef Stew by Dulce Vida Bakery + Resto definitely passes all my criteria for what a great beef stew is.

The Kadayawan Festival is celebrated each year to celebrate Davao’s unique diversity and the bountiful harvest of fruits, vegetables, seafood, and other products.

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.
