The 1st Dabaw Sinugba Festival

One of the best things about living in Davao is having easy access to good food that doesn’t drill a whole on the pocket. Found in every corner of the city are Barbeque and Grill businesses that offer great food for very affordable prices. We’re talking about less than a hundred for a full, satisfying meal. No wonder these food places have captured the hearts of both locals and tourists alike. I personally have my favorite BBQ places in the city, and mind you, there are a lot of them.
To celebrate the city’s rich BBQ and grill cuisine, Mocha Productions brings forth the first ever Dabaw Sinugba Festival. This event aims to bring together Davao City’s local and international BBQ and Grill Businesses to four nights of fun-filled dining from March 14-17, 2013 at the Tienda del Mercado in Juna Subdivision, Matina Davao City; just in time for for the 76th Araw ng Dabaw Festival. As such, this festival will be in support of the City Tourism’s “Life is Herecampaign and DOT’s “It’s More Fun in the Philippines” campaign, which aims to push Davao City as a go-to destination for the best grilled cuisine in the Philippines.

One of the event highlights is the “Eat-All-You Can Sinugba Buffet”. For P200, festival goers can feast on
the selection of BBQ and grill dishes. Participating in the sinugba buffet will also earn them the chance
to vote for the “Best Sinugba” among the 32 food stalls that offer BBQ and Grilled foods including kababs, burgers, pork and chicken BBQ, and grilled seafood.
Here’s the Schedule of Events for your guidance
In conjunction with the Dabaw Sinugba Festival is the official launching of Tienda del Mercado, a weekend market and bazaar that will showcase lifestyle choices in crafts, plants, food and drinks, fashion, music, health and fitness, animal grooming, and many more.

The Dabaw Sinugba Festival will run from 4 PM -12 midnight daily from March 14-17, 2013.

Greenwich Pizza Blowout On Tour

Last Friday, I attended the Greenwhich Pizza Blowout on Tour together with some blogger friends. We were treated to a bountiful feast of the store’s newest offerings.

Pizza Fries

Special Overload

The Star of the night was no other than the newest Crispy Glazed Chicken.

Greenwhich Crispy Glazed Chicken, 79php

I have always been a chicken lover and I would eat any recipe that has chicken in it. I’m glad that homegrown restaurants have been in constant innovation with the food that they offer, and as for Greenwhich, they have raised the bar for the good ol’ Fried Chicken that everybody loves.

What I like about the Crispy Glazed Chicken is that even with the presence of the sweet glaze, the skin of the chicken remains crispy, living up to its name. The meat is tender, juicy, and flavorful – just the way I like it. The sauce is a savory mix albeit a little too sweet for my taste. It could be because I ate it on its own. If only I had paired it with rice, then the sauce wouldn’t be too overwhelming. But nonetheless, I enjoyed it. It’s always good to have a different twist to the crispy chicken I’ve loved over the years.
