Food Tasting @ Royal House

I was invited for the Food Tasting at Royal House yesterday. It was nice to meet the Davao Bloggers and at the same time its my first time to join a Food Tasting event sponsored by Claveria Cafe.  I was happy to be invited to the event since I love food and I love eating. After an hour of chit-chat with the new people I just met, we were told to go up as the Food tasting will be starting, there where at least 20 Donburi meals to be tasted. We took pictures of the rice bowls we are about to taste. Donburi means rice bowl dish consisting of fish, meat and vegetables simmered together and served with rice. A regular bowl of Donburi would just only cost you P70 and the large bowl P80. its made affordable for everyone to enjoy.Here are some of the Donburi I like:
My #1 fave is the Cream Dory w/ mushroom.. Had’nt had picture of the dish. I love the taste of the dory w/ a bit of sesame oil together with Button mushrooms
Photobucket Terriyaki chicken,pork n Beef
There version of the popular Teriyaki is good, tender meat and cucumbers
The shawarma bowl is also good, with the right spices and a mix of a bit of turmeric and veggies
Burger Steak–the Burger steak is just right, the patty is juicy.

[Food Trip] Bon Appetit

It was months ago that I have heard from a friend that this Resto have numbers of patrons who would drive their way to Tagum just to try their French food. One time the resto was also published on the local newspapers. I got curious and invited my friends for another gastronomic adventure, but unfortunately, upon arriving the resto, they were no tables for us since we didn’t know that reservation is needed. So after a month from the 1st attempt, we give it another try, luckily my friend has reserved a table for the 4 of us here are Bon Appetit.Its located @ Plaza del Carmen Obrero. At 7pm we were at the resto since we were really hungry. The waiter suggested a lot of dishes that are hard to pronounce, but was well explained to us. We ordered 4 dishes and decided to share every dish. First, we were given appetizers as we were ordering.Here are what we ordered:
Photobucket Salad Nicoise Photobucket
Photobucket tenderloin steak

The meal we had was good,the price for the meal is affordable, but the taste of french food minus the salt and spices didn’t fit us much. But all in all the resto gives good service and the food was good 🙂
