Sinuglaw(Grilled Pork with Tuna ceviche)

Well, I’ve been thinking very deeply about what to post next in my blog and so I found myself looking through pictures of my journey back to the Philippines. And found these amazing photographs of the food I engulfed myself with and I greatly miss. All of these are from Antonio’s Restaurant at Davao City. I love this place. Overall, I enjoyed my experience with food more than anything else in the Philippines. Well I guess except for scuba diving but that is for another day and another post. Enjoy!

Grilled Tuna Panga(Jaw)


The most delicious food I ate in Davao, the grilled tuna panga makes you think twice if you are really eating fish. It’s just too good to be true and it’s healthy too. ^__^ After my first bite, I knew that no steak that I’ve ever eaten before can compare to the amazing flavor of this masterpiece. This is a must-eat at least once in your life.

Durian “King of Fruits”


Durian is a fruit that is popular in Southeast Asia for its large size, unique odour, and formidable thorn-covered husk.

A durian falling on a person’s head can cause serious injuries because it is heavy, armed with sharp thorns, and can fall from a significant height. Wearing a hardhat is recommended when collecting the fruit.
