After one month it felt great to be back in the Land of Promise.

This trip gave me an opportunity to appreciate Davao's unique & cheap food finds!
The last time I was in Davao, we only tried eating in Ranchero, Abreeza Mall because we were in Pearl Farm Beach Resort half of our trip but this time I had more chance to taste Davao's originals
Yellow Fin Seafood & Restaurant
Upon our arrival from Manila, we checked in at ALU Hotel we were hungry so we asked the receptionist if there's a famous restaurant nearby. She directly recommended us to try out Yellow Fin which was just one ride away.
Taxis were easy to find in Davao but we opted to ride a multicab for more adventure. Fare fee costs P8 each.

Yellow Fin Seafood & Restaurant is a local restaurant that has numerous branches in the city. It is becoming a culinary institution in Davao City.
To order food you can either order dishes from a buffet of different viands or popularly known as turo-turo or you can order from their menu.

Overall the food was delicious, I love & recommend the Adobong Tuna Buntot, something to try that you rarely find in Manila
Another recommended place to eat in Davao is Luz Kinilaw. It is a carinderia type of dining and is one of the most popular seafood eateries in the city.
Just outside the restaurant, you'll see different types of seafoods grilling.

The restaurant's main dining area is at the second floor. Don't expect to see a fancy air-conditioned restaurant, it's old & rustic which makes the gastronomical food experience in Davao complete.

It's a no-fuss place for diners who love grilled seafoods, with big servings, great taste yet very affordable.
We ordered Grilled Squid, Sinigang na Tuna, Bagaybay or Fish gonads (male fish testes) & Bihod or Eggs of a female fish. It's my first time to try the exotic Bagaybay, it's worth a shot if you're in Davao, it has a gelatin texture and has a similarity with an ox brain of Persian restaurants. I love everything, I can say that they already mastered the art of perfect grilling through years of experience.
