Davao Food Appreciation Tour 2012!1:44 PM
|Having fun at Ranchero's while waiting for the FOOD!!||Featuring The KAKANIN TRIO!!|
Ranchero’s Kakanin Trio includes Tibok Tibok (Maja Blanca), Sticky Rice with Mango slices and Suman Sa Lihiya. They also served us pancit, fried lumpia and drinks. I really enjoy eating native Filipino snacks. In fact, Suman is my favourite because it reminds me well of a summer spent with my Grandparents in our farm. My Grandmother made Suman Sa Lihiya (rice cake with lye) with Latik (coconut milk and sugar syrup) every afternoon while my cousins and I would climb up on our mango tree. Eating Ranchero’s Suman Sa Lihiya, I felt as if I had stepped back into the past eating my grandmother’s delicious Suman sa Lihiya, smiling at her, hiding my wound after I fell down on the mango tree.
After Ranchero, we went to Crocodile Park. I’ve been going to Crocodile Park many times this year to shoot for our travel show. So going there felt like one of those feel-good days in a Zoo! We arrived earlier than most of the participants because some of them needed to check-in to their hotels. I was with Kuya Andrew and Anj then but an unexpected turn of events made us get late for the animal show. And you know what that is? Kuya Andrew got hungry. Lelz.
In the evening, we made our next food excursion at Lachi’s Sans Rival Atbp. Lachis always gets me excited! It’s my favourite restaurant in Davao City. Lachi’s is really one of the best food destinations in Davao. They serve great tasting pastries, cakes and my all time favourite dessert – Lachi’s Sans Rival. Yes, exclusively yung sa kinala lang. :-D
