Vikings Davao launches its Kadayawan Menu, in preparation for next week’s Kadayawan Celebration. Kadayawan is a celebration of Fruits harvest in Davao. In line with the celebration, they are featuring a line-up of dishes that has a Taste of Davao. Its a good time to celebrate Kadayawan with Family and Friends by dining at Vikings SM Lanang Premiere Davao.
I was happy that once again I was invited to another round of food tasting by Vikings. Well, I would say it was another first for me, since I get to taste some of the dishes that I don’t really get to try. Here are what we had during the Food Tasting:
Balut ala Pobre Pate -It was my first time to try this since I really don’t eat Balut. since I really have to try this for this food review, I have to convince myself, and I think Balut Pate wasn’t that bad after all. For Balut lovers, this is something you’ll want to try.
Bagnet Salad (MUST TRY!) – This is one of my favorite during the Food tasting, its Bagnet, a popular Ilocano dish mixed with greens, its like eating Bagnet minus the oiliness or in (Tagalog its called “Umay”) since the salad is a good complement to the bagnet.
Ensaladang Talong with Malunggay Pesto (MUST TRY!) -Salad made from grilled eggplant, vinegar, tomatoes and onions. this starter is good since the Spicy Malunggay Pesto compliments with the Eggplant salad.
Piniritong Lumpiang Tinapa at Mangga (MUST TRY!) – If your fond of eating green mangoes, mango n tinapa mix goes well-together, its like having green mango n bagoong in one dish.
Vikings Special Kinilaw – A mix of tuna ceviche, grilled pork, veggies and Davao Pomelo.
Molo Soup – A Filipino soup made from pork dumplings and chicken or pork broth.
Balbacua– its a popular dish that is made of cow/ buffalo skin and meat boiled for hours to make it tender. It was another first for me to try this.
Baked Imbao with Spinach (MUST TRY!) – Imbao is known in Davao, this baked Imbao is really good, reminds me of baked oysters and spinach dip mixed together.
Baby Back Ribs in Durian BBQ Sauce (MUST TRY!)– Grilled Baby back ribs with durian BBQ Sauce, the durian isn’t too strong, you get to taste both the bbq sauce and the durian flavor. Another dish with a twist of Davao flavor.
Rellenong Manok with Mangosteen Sauce– Stuffed chicken something similar to the usual home-made meat loaf with Mangosteen Sauce, the sweet mangosteen sauce gives a twist to the stuffed chicken.
Bihod Pasta (MUST TRY!)– Bihod, Female tuna Egg is mixed with Olive oil, a unique pasta dish. Its my first time to taste Tuna Egg.
Spicy Baked Calderetang Kambing- another first to try this dish since I don’t eat kambing, this dish is flavorful with a modern twist by adding mozzarella cheese.
Beef Steak Tagalog (MUST TRY!) – For steak lovers, try this Filipino version of beef steak.. Its juicy & flavorful!
Ginataang Alimango– Fiesta or Lauriats aren’t complete without the King of Seafood.. the crabs! Try Vikings version of crabs in Coconut Milk, spicy yet with a twist of coconut milk!
Laing at Tinapa- a spicy dish made of gabi leaves and dried fish.
Gising Gising – A Bicolano dish mixed with coconut milk and lots of chili!
Adobong Manok– Fiesta’s in the Philippines won’t be complete without the ever popular Adobo! Try Vikings version of chicken adobo.
Filipino Paella (MUST TRY!)– Filipino version of the popular Spanish dish Paella, Vikings version of Paella is a must try!
Mango Sans Rival – A feast wouldn’t be complete without desserts, as the desserts were served, we were so excited to taste them. One of the desserts that caught my attention is this Mango Sansrival, not too sweet too!
Leche Flan- topped with mango and strawberry, its not too sweet. Definitely a good meal-ender.
