Sooo Pinoy Food Trip: Dencio's Kamayan

I thought that the Davao Food Appreciation Tour would be the first and the last food tour for this year. I never anticipated that once again, after one month, I'd have my second food trip experience together with other members of media from different points of the country!

And the first stop of our Sooo Pinoy Food Trip was Dencio's Kamayan near Fortune Homes, Lanang, Davao City.

About Dencio's Kamayan

Dencio's Kamayan in Davao City has become synonymous with their tasty yet affordable Filipino food. This family restaurant started in the year 1998 and quickly grew from the positive testimonials of the locals. Since then, Dencio's Kamayan has become part of the dining experience of the locals and visitors. They serve great Filipino grilled food at affordable prices. More so, the restaurant has this homey feel and the service crews are all attentive. Their signature food are the grilled items namely Chicken Barbecue, Pork Barbecue, Grilled Spare Ribs, Ribs Espesyal, and Sari-Sari Espesyal. Other favorites are seafood dishes like Grilled Panga, Sizzling Bangus Belly, Grilled Squid, Grilled Tiyan ng Isda, and Pinoy staples such as Kare-kare and Crispy Pata.

Pork Sisig

Dencio's Kamayan was the first restaurant of the Sooo Pinoy Food Tour. We tried their famous Chicken Barbecue, Pork Sisig and Ribs Espesyal. Their Ribs Espesyal was my favorite since it was juicy and tasty. Sarap to the bones!

And look, after eating our heavy merienda meal, we struck a pose near the Dencio's statue and even imitated his signature pose!

  14. Your pictures are so mouth-watering! I miss that place! There's something about their food, must be the use of sage leaves or thyme or whatever that makes it so addictive.
