A Taste of Davao

Davao Food

Consider this a sampler of sorts. We spent five whole days in Davao but we knew from the get-go that we wouldn’t be able to cover everything on our itinerary. The most stressful part about it was the food. Boy was that a challenge. The question was: How do we taste all of Davao’s best dishes in five days??

Now before anyone accuses us of being mindless gluttons, let me explain that this was primarily a business trip – the most wonderful kind where our main job was to explore and experience everything a place has to offer (and later on, write about the nitty-gritty stuff). Yes, that includes the cuisine. Remember my friends, Mon and Dijo, who danced like crazy with me at the Dinagyang Festival? At the time, I told you they were brewing up something amazing. Well now it’s finally happening and I’m crazy excited for them because it’s always been their dream to set up their very own – drumroll, please – travel agency!

When they asked me if I could go with them to Davao and take photos for Bookie (cute name, huh? check the links below and follow them!), I said yes in a heartbeat. They had planned out five days worth of activities for us – it was tiring but at least we were doing something we loved. I took the photos they wanted me to take as we hopped from one place to another. In between, I tried to find the little things that made Davao beautiful for me and I snapped photos hungrily in an effort to freeze these special moments and take them with me before we had to run off to another destination. It took me a couple of days to sift through five days worth of photographs, but I’ve finally sorted them out and dutifully organized them into folders (HOORAY).

I picked out a few which I wanted to share here. This was Davao for me – rather, a sampler, an appetizer. Davao wasn’t just deliciously mouthwatering, it was friendly and hospitable, colorful, vibrant, entertaining, and exciting. The trip was short and sweet, but it definitely left me hungry for more.
