The Davao Food Appreciation Tour (DFAT) is a yearly event organized by bloggers for the bloggers. It aims to gather bloggers from all over the Philippines to sample some of the best Davao food. This year, DFAT has kicked off with a lunch at RBG Bar & Grill at Park Inn by Radisson hotel. RBG offers delectable modern cuisines with Davao twist. During our lunch at the restaurant, we were able to sample some of their best-selling dishes. We feasted on some of their appetizers, entrees and decadent desserts. Appetizers Fo appetizers, RBG has offered us with Pizza, Mini Burger with Fries and Tuna Ceviche. The ceviche was mouth-watering.

But instead of showing the face of a movie celebrity, a beauty queen or a politician, the video reveals an unlikely, yet welcome sight—a new, clean toilet facility.
