On a recent visit to Mt. Apo Highland Resort in Kapatagan, Davao del Sur, the resort’s chef, Kuya Toilo, treated this writer to a trio of Filipino Snack Treats--- Banana, Jackfruit and Buko (Young Coconut Meat) in one plate!

How to prepare: Bananas are boiled then sliced, set aside. Use the cooking bananas or saba. Jackfruit is sliced into strips, cooked with a little sugar until tender. Buko strips are also cooked with a little sugar until tender then combine with the jackfruit.

Arrange the boiled bananas like a bed for the langka and buko strips then pour caramelized sugar on top.

Easy to prepare and cook snack using three Filipino favorite fruits in one dish to give one triple treat!


Major airlines fly daily to Davao City from Manila and Cebu. Kapatagan is 2 to 3 hours away from Davao City. It is located in Sitio Barras, Barangay Kapatagan, Digos City, Davao del Sur.

If you’re going on a private vehicle from Davao City, go south to Digos City and take the right road leading to Kidapawan. There’s a big sign saying “This Way to Kapatagan”.

It is best to bring a 4 x 4 vehicle to go up the Kapatagan.

If you’re commuting, take a bus from the Ecoland Terminal for Digos City. Tricycles will take you to the “old” Digos terminal where the vans are for Camp Sabros. Vans cost PhP100/head (US$2.33).
