[Events] Blugre proudly Davao

When coffee shops weren’t a trend way back, Blugre was one of the pioneering coffee shops. Durian coffee was on every coffeeholics list of must-try whenever they visit Davao. Blugre has made it big in Mindanao’s coffee market, from its first branch in Bajada, Landco Building, it has grown to 6 more branches around Metro Davao, 2 branches in GenSan & a new branch in Tagum City. With its fast growing branches, we can say that nothing beats the King of coffee shops. Each branches caters to different crowds, its a good place for meetings, bonding with family & friends.

Blugre has invited us bloggers to a meeting, for updates on their current & future plans. Among its latest news are that they had opened a new branch in Davao which is located near Davao Doctors Hospital which would be their first coffeeshop to open 24 hrs, and recently they had opened another in Tagum City.

[Events] Bulgogi Brothers Opens @ SM Lanang

Davao has become a food haven as recently a lot of restaurants from different places had opened here at SM Lanang Premiere. One of its latest addition to its numerous new dining places is Bulgogi Brothers. A Korean restaurant which specializes on Bulgogi (which means Fire meats), its a franchise from korea brought to us by the Bistro group of restaurants which also had franchised Friday’s & Italiannis. Just a short background about Bulgogi Brothers, it has 38 stores over South Korea, its first international branch is the one in Manila.

I love spicy food, since korean food is a mix of spicy food & almost similar to Japanese food. I had no problem in adapting to it. In fact, me & my family would dine at least twice a month on korean resto’s around town.  Whats good about korea food is that their everyday meal is healthier compared to other dishes and you will feel that you are having a lite meal since almost all of the food served at the resto is not just delicious but also healthy.

As we entered the restaurant, we were immediately serve with a cup of their corn tea, while they introduce what we will be having during the taste test. We were served with their complimentary side dishes such as pickled veggies, sweet corn, eggplant & of course Kimchi.

Haemul Gungjung Mandu (MUST TRY!) Fried dumpling with seafood served with spicy sauce. This is one of my favorite among the dishes served. I like the dumplings with the spicy sauce.. they are perfect together (for those who love spicy sauces)

Kimchi Jigae– (kimchi Stew) is a bit spicy for people who aren’t into spicy food, but this is really good, aside from the kimchi, it has white rice cake mixed in it. its something korean-chinese dish. After gulping the soup, ul feel a bit refreshed .. (go figure) 😀
