[DFAT 2013] Tsuru Japanese Resto & Sushi Bar

Tsuru is an authentic Japanese restaurant that has been existing here in Davao for over a long time. Its one of those who resto which serves good quality Japanese food. It might be a bit pricey compared to other Japanese restos, but I would say that their food is really good. During our 1st day of the DFAT tour, I was looking forward  to visit their Abreeza branch.


I have been to Tsuru several times but I haven’t tasted this sushi rolls that were served to us that day.Here is what we had , their best-seller sushi’s which are :


 Crazy Maki @ P185- sushi with tempura bits and kani sticks


Volcano Roll @ P250- Sushi wrapped with Salmon, Spring Onions, Chili oil & mayo with Tsuru’s special sauces

Tsuru Roll @ P250 – Sushi with salmon, kani & cream cheese, topped with tempura bits and teriyaki sauce


 Godzilla Roll @ P295– sushi rolled with avocado, salmon & raw tuna..


I am not much of a Japanese food lover, but once in a while I would like to try some new dishes. Though I like the 4 rolls, the Volcano and Godzilla are my personal fave since I like my sushi a bit spicy & godzilla roll because of the different ingredients that was wrapped with it. I had enjoyed my sushi adventure here and would like to bring my family and friends to another sushi adventure here.

Have you tried their sushi’s yet? How do u find it? which of the 4 are your personal favorites? (Don’t forget to drop me a line on the comment box)

[DFAT 2013] Mam Bebs

Our DFAT 1st Day, First stop was at Mam Bebs (formerly La Suerte Bakery). It  is not just a bakery, they also serve food for lunch. We had light lunch at the same time meet up with DFAT 2013 Participants. I ordered Palabok and Pork Binagoongan meal for lunch. I shared my meal with blogger friends so as they can also taste the Pork Binagoongan.  The meal comes with rice and noodle soup (mami) . I just couldn’t miss ordering the Palabok.  For dessert, I was sharing a slice of chocolate cake with blogger friends. After a few minutes of looking around the store, I suddenly remember that I also wanted to order their Batchoy (noodle soup) and was asking friends if they want to share with me. But since everyone had ordered, well I just thought of visiting Mam Bebs again soon. But surprisingly, the pork binagoongan meal had a small bowl of noodle soup. It had somehow satisfy my noodle soup craving that day.

Here is what I had for lunch:

Last Friday, June 14, 2013 Greenwich hosted a Bloggers blow-out to launch their latest pizzas. It was  a night of food, raffle and fun. Greenwich launched their 2 new Pizzas & Lasagna Supreme. The two new pizzas are the  Ultimate Filipino’s fave pizza the Ultimate Hawaiian Pizza & Ultimate Special Overload. Its our last stop on our first day of the DFAT (Davao Food Appreciation Tour). Whenever I thnink of having a house party or dining out with friends, I would think of having pizza, pasta n chicken. I always love the combination of pasta, pizza & chicken, its a simple yet complete meal for me.

Everyone really cant get enough of the Ultimate Hawaiian Overload, another Greenwich offering to make pizza lovers crave for more. With the Hawaiian Overload which has two kinds of cheese — Mozzarella and Cheddar, glazed pineapples, and two types of meat– ham & bacon. Crisp on the outside yet soft and chewy on the inside crust that is freshly made everyday in all Greenwich stores. The pizza innovations from Greenwich definitely satisfies Filipinos craving for an overload of Hawaiian pizza goodness. One can savor the blend of  the juicy and sweet taste of glazed pineapples, and other delightful toppings of the Ultimate Hawaiian Overload.

The Ultimate Special Overload has been a personal favorite of mine whenever we would order pizza on Greenwich. “It tops the list of Greenwich pizzas”, says Lulu De Castro, Greenwich Senior Marketing Manager. It  has practically everything a pizza any pizza lover can ask for.”  It takes one to an all-new gastronomic journey. It prides itself as the most loaded pizza in the market today, giving pizza lovers the ultimate fix that spells richness down to the last bite.  It has 13 mouth-watering toppings loaded to perfection. The experience begins with slices of beef, bacon, pepperoni and salami, with sprinkles of veggies which also includes mushroom, olives, red and green bell pepper, onion and minced garlic. Filling and priced reasonably, its the ideal centerpiece in fun barkada gatherings.
