Davao is a melting pot of cultures. There are Christians, Muslims, and various groups of Indigenous Peoples. People speak Tagalog, Bisaya, English, Hiligaynon, Waray, and various other dialects and languages. The cuisine is also a melting pot of cuisines, using local fresh ingredients in a variety of techniques and cuisines. All in living in harmony in one perfect spot. The Kadayawan Festival is celebrated each year to celebrate Davao’s unique diversity and the bountiful harvest of fruits, vegetables, seafood, and other products.

Vikings Luxury Buffet captures the Kadayawan spirit and presents it in a deliciously unique culinary experience through their Kadayawan Special Menu.

APPETIZERS

The Kadayawan Menu starts with some unique Filipino appetizers served with a unique Davao twist. One of my favorites is the Vikings Special Davao Kinilaw.

Adobong Tuna Buntot by Yellow Fin Seafood Restaurant

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.

Yakimix Sushi and Smokeless Grill Restaurant at Veranza Mall

I’ve always been an unabashed HEAVY buffet eater. I can eat from a good spread for hoursss. Recently, I had a fantasticly yummy buffet experience at Yakimix Sushi and Smokeless Grill Restaurant at Veranza Mall in General Santos City. I even broke my strict personal rule of not being late to appointments just so I could enjoy the buffet longer. And if I didn’t have that abovementioned appointment, I could have eaten for an even longer period of time. Why wouldn’t I? There was a spread of Asian food that I could eat, eat, eat.

I began my Yakimix adventure with a whole lot of Salmon Sashimi and an assortment of other sushi, sashimi, and maki. Let’s just say, the amount of Salmon Sashimi I consumed was more than enough to cover the amount I was going to pay for the entire buffet. LOL!

Panagatan Seafoods Restaurant

Nothing like deliciously cooked fresh seafood to make me happy.

Grilled Seafood Platter

Grilled Seafood Platter

I had the pleasure of dining at one of Mindanao’s dining gems, Panagatan Seafoods Restaurant in Opol, Misamis Oriental during a roadtrip to Iligan City from Cagayan de Oro City. When I was told we’d be eating at a restaurant along the way, I had expected a small quaint restaurant with a few dishes on the menu to served to weary travelers. I certainly did not expect a humongous seaside restaurant that served a selection of fresh seafoods which can be cooked according to the diners’ preference. I was in heaven.

Sumo Sam Legacy

Sumo Sam's Crunchy Tuna Roll

Sumo Sam’s Crunchy Tuna Roll available only in Davao branches

What is the Sumo Sam Legacy? Sumo Sam was created to fill a gap in the market. It’s designed as a casual dining Japanese restaurant that’s not fast food nor expensive high end dining.

Sumo Sam offers a Japanese menu that’s accessible and not too Japanese. For one, the menus are in English with dishes that have descriptive names. Goes to show that Sumo Sam is not as high brow as some people think.

Sumo Sam presents Japanese dishes and Japanese cuisine in a way that most Filipinos can fully enjoy…. fresh ingredients, strong yet balanced flavors, and beautiful presentation.
