[Food Trip] Arpochi

Its nice to know that many restaurants from other places in the country has started to open here in Davao, I had been passing by this Seafood resto along Polo Street near the Autoshop area. We usually pass by there since I just live somewhere near. It was just last month that I got the chance to come try their Crabs, Squid and Prawns.

Arpochi is a seafood resto that had originated in Marbel, it is owned and operated by a family. Their Marbel branch was the first that has been opened for 14 years, they had a 2nd branch in General Santos City and opened its newest branch here in Davao. The resto serves Crabs which can be cooked either Steamed or Sweet n Spicy. Prawns can be cooked Sinigang, Sweet n Spicy or Steamed.

We had Sweet n Spicy Crabs, Sweet n Spicy Prawns, Adobo Ilonggo (Native Adobo Chicken cooked dry) & Pusit Steak was served to us. I love how the seafoods are freshly cooked in Sweet n Spicy sauce. You won’t need any sawsawan (condiments) to enhance the taste of the seafood, just have the sauce together with the seafood, its more than enough.

My favorite among the 4 dishes that were served to us are the Crabs n Prawns. Will definitely visit them again for another round of seafoods. Would like to thank the owner Ms. Gloria Espa for serving us a seafood feast together with the Davao Bloggers.

[Food Trip] Stop Over Pizza

After a few yeas of not meeting my friends, I texted them if they were available on a Saturday to meet during my Manila visit a few weeks back. Luckily most of them are available. We chose to meet at Stop Over Pizza since its one of my friend’s resto. I have read a lot of good reviews about their pizza’s.

To start with, they have flavors from korea, Italy, Japan, America and not to forget the Philippines. Stop Over Pizza started by opening a stall on Mercato a year ago, they also had joined the Rockwell’s Ultimate Taste Test as one of the participants, they were among the top choice of bloggers and foodies who had joined the Ultimate Taste test. It was late last year that they had decided to open their resto along Maria Clara St. Banawe, Quezon City.

We ordered the half Bulgogi Pizza n half Terimayo Pizza. Bulgogi Pizza ((beef marinated in bulgogi sauce made with apples and pears, topped with mozzarella cheese drizzled with Korean dressing, sesame oil and spring onions) & Terimayo Pizza (grilled chicken topped with cheddar & mozzarella cheese, onions, with special teriyaki sauce, japanese mayo dressing and aonori flakes).The pizza is a MUST TRY! it was really good, something different from the usual pepperoni, ham n cheese thingy we always have. We also ordered the Philly cheese bbq steak Nachos (Grilled Marinated beef w/ cheese sauce, onions, sour cream and hickory bbq sauce) it was also good. It was something new to me, we also had Tuktuk or (buffalo wings) MUST TRY! it was crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside and we had an order of their Creamy Carbonara w/ Garlic bread.

For desserts we tried their gelatos, among the 4 flavors we tried, I like the ham & cheese and the bleeding eyeball the most. The ham & cheese literally has a lot of bacon bits and cheese, while the bleeding eyeball is a mixture of  fruits. The gelatos cost P90.
PhotobucketThe Verdict: Will definitely go back and try their other unique  pizza flavors. I really like their tuktuk chicken & their Bulgogi Pizza. I am really more than satisfied with their food. They also have the Economy Class meals and the Business class meal. They also deliver around manila. U can check them at https://www.facebook.com/StopOverPizza.
