Durian Shake & More: Davao City Treats Worth Your Trip
Ida Damo | Aug 22, 2014
General Santos City may be the country’s tuna capital, but Davaoeños likewise prepare tuna in delicious ways. Proof is this crispy tuna:
It's all fresh and marinated in special herbs and spices. It's then deep-fried to make it crunchy while retaining that juiciness and tenderness on the inside.
Verdict: it's good to the last bite!
Then you've got their sizzling squid. The ordinary becomes extra special as Antonio’s prepares the freshest medium-sized squid in loads of garlic and herbs, with a sprinkling of yes, more crispy-fried garlic!
The meat is just tender when you bite into it, indicative of how well-cooked it is.
To cap off the meal, there’s the surprisingly super buko durian shake.
The durian's strong taste is tempered by the tender strips of buco while retaining its distinct flavor. For those who have sworn off the notorious odor of durian, this shake will be a perfect introduction to how yummy the fruit really is.
Get a taste of these Kadayawan treats and other delicious Filipino and fusion delights at Antonio’s Bar and Grill branches at SM City Ecoland and Abreeza, both in Davao City.
