Davao : Cecil's Snack Inn

Cecil's Snack Inn serves Filipino comfort food like palabok, fresh and fried lumpia, batchoy and a lot more. They also serve delicious pastries. Their main branch is at Anda St., Davao City beside the old CAP Building. They also have several stalls in the leading malls in the city.

I like their palabok. It tastes good although I think that the sauce was too thick and overpowering. Price is very affordable. You get a plate of palabok plus a small piece of brownie  and a glass of soft drink for only P88. 
Their eclair is the reason why I always go to Cecil's. It's my favorite and I think it's the best in the city. Since my college years I always drop by at Cecil's to buy their famed eclair. A piece of eclair only costs P25.

Address: 98 Anda Street, 3-A Poblacion, Davao City,

Davao City : Giardino Gelato

Gelato is an ice cream shop in Davao City. They offer both gelato and sorbet for the lactose-intolerant customers. They are located at the second level of Abreeza Mall in Davao City.

A couple of weeks ago, Giardino Gelato has invited a group of bloggers in Davao City to try out their new offerings for 2014. I was lucky enough to be one of the bloggers who got to taste their new flavors. They showed us the process on how to make the best tasting gelato. They also showed us how they make their super smooth sorbet which I really like a lot. So yes, we were able to taste their straciatella (vanilla w/ chocolate chips) and mango sorbet straight from the Carpigiani (the machine that makes the gelato).

My favorite among their unreleased flavors were chocnut, reese's nutrageous and durian. Visit Giardino Gelato now at the Second Level of Abreeza Mall. You may also visit their FB Page at :
