Upper Farm Steakhouse in Digos City

If you have been keeping up with me since day 1, then you exactly know that this blog is meant for my food adventures, right? So I’m going to share my first ever food trip experience while I was at Digos City. I went there because of some work related stuff, there was an event and I needed to take pictures but where’s the fun if I can’t try one of the city’s famous restaurants? So before going home I browsed through my phone and searched ‘delicious restaurants in Digos City’, a lot of restaurants popped up but Upper Farm Steakhouse caught my attention because of the photos and well the food looks delicious.

When we arrived at the Upper Farm Steakhouse there was only one family who was currentlly eating during that time, I don’t know if it’s because we went there already late or they’re not that famous after all. lol.

Anyway, the place really has a “farm” vibe and very instagramable too! (I don’t know I might be just a scaredy cat but it was quite eerie that time. Haha.)

We ordered there famous meals – Nacho Fries, Burger with Shoestring Fries and Glazed Pork Chop.

Their Nacho Fries is definitely my favorite! I recommend this! You could really taste the seasoning and the salsa on top was very delicious and very meaty!

Love the burger too! The burger is quite large for its price this cost roughly around P150-P180 if I’m not mistaken.

Also loved the Glazed Pork Chop, it was very yummy and it was very easy to chew.

The staff were very accomodating as well. They were very attentive and respectful. I would love to go here again when I have the spare time. Overall experience was okay and would definitely recommend this place for people who wants to visit Digos.

My Current Favorite Drink

If you personally know me, you would already know how much I love milk tea! Back when I wasn’t really into saving, I would always splurge because duhh it’s my favorite! But there’s this one Milk Tea place that I’m really obsessed with, I’d literally go south to north just to buy my favorite drink from them.

Serenitea’s Matcha Uji Frappe is my happy pill! Matcha and milk tea with ice cream all in one! Wow. I have no words for this but absolute perfection! Just recently when I went there, I also tried there taro snow and it tasted so good that i finished it in less than 5 minutes.

This taro snow is not just for the upcoming hot summer season but also perfect for this tropical weather that we lived in. Serenitea has lots of flavored drinks to choose from. Why not try it out yourself and see what i’m raving about? I assure you that you won’t regret it.

The place and the ambiance is cozy, it’s instagrammable too!

 

P.s. You might be wondering why I added my photo, well it’s because i just wanted to. HAHA.

Fried Ice Cream, anyone?

I need to seriously share this with you guys! Just recently, there’s an ongoing event here at work (currently working at a mall) and there’s a booth here at the Food Fair and they sell Fried Ice Cream!

I wasn’t really fond of Fried Ice Cream before but this is definitely the best one that I have tried so far. Tried different kinds of flavors but my favorite one is their best seller: Mango Extreme!

The texture was creamy and tastes so delicious and did I already mentioned that their products has 90% less sugar? It’s a win win situation right?! It’s not just yummy but it’s also a guilt free snack!

Also tried their Matcha flavored Fried Ice Cream but unfortunately I wasn’t too into it. lol

Try it now at GMarket’s Food Fair 2017 at GMall of Davao!

Yolks Flower Cafe + Cupcakery

This is already a long overdue post, I have been meaning to create a post regarding this one ever since last year, but I didn’t have the time to do so. So I am writing a review right now about Yolks and my experience when I took a visit at their beautiful Cafe.

Egg Waffle

Ever since I’ve known about egg waffles I have been wondering what it taste like because from what I’ve seen on my Instagram feed it really looked so delicious so when I got to taste it at Happy Lemon I ordered their matcha egg waffle although the color is green, it still tasted a like plain waffle. Lol. Disappointing.

Anyway, when I learned about another egg waffle food stall that is currently selling at SM Lanang, I didn’t think twice and went with my friend just to satisfy my curiosity on whether their egg waffle tastes good (because it really looks so good in the picture). We traveled from SM Ecoland to SM Lanang with a public vehicle and not to mention that day was raining like cats and dogs so I think I really made an effort just to try it and I was really excited. We went straight away at the Mercado Locale located at the ground floor of SM Lanang, people were already lining up at the food stall when we got their so it took us like 5 minutes before we got to order. I ordered a matcha egg waffle with a vanilla ice cream and my friend got their plain chocolate flavor. We waited for like another 20 minutes but it is already understandable that we would wait a bit longer since there were a lot of people who already ordered before us, so we decided to look around at the other food stalls at the Mercado Locale as well.

Taco Loco: Tonight we’re going Mexican

Have you ever experienced being so hungry but can’t decide on where to eat? Have you also experienced breaking down because you were just so hungry that you could barely think straight and you were already so cranky that you might flip everyone or anything you see? You know what? I have, I can’t even count how many times already. lol

Anyway, the whole point of this post is that last friday, my friend and I decided to go to this Korean Restaurant at Torres Street and the word buffet was really enticing and I was really excited that if there were no people around I would literally skip around while going there. So we arrived at the place where the Korean Buffet is located  and once we went inside the restaurant, I was a tad bit disappointed when I saw the food that they were serving because there were only a few of it and that was not what I was expecting and I was like “am I really at a buffet restaurant?” So we decided to not eat there anymore because first: there were only a few choices on their menu and second: I didn’t like the ambiance of the place.

So we decided to go to Lachis instead and as we went there, we accidentally passed by this restaurant along Marfori Street called Taco Loco. Taco Loco is a Mexican restaurant and

Chixboy Grill

Grilling is one of the most famous ways in cooking ones food here in the Philippines and as well as all over the world. Here in Davao we can almost see every corner of the street that sells grilled meat or barbeques. It was just a typical day that I had and I wanted to try something new so I decided to try out this place called Chixboy and I just also recently knew about this place through a friend.

The saying “Don’t judge the book by its cover” suits this restaurant well because as you can see the place outside where this restaurant is located, is just pretty simple but once you go inside then you can definitely see how lovely the place is.

As we went inside, I can’t help not to notice the interior of this place because I like how they designed it especially the chunks of wood on the

Taishozan

I’ve been to a few Japanese restaurants here in Davao City and I can say that my favorite by far is Taishozan and I have been here twice already and it never disappoints because the food tastes great especially their spicy tuna roll like it is seriously the bomb!

I liked the interior of the place because they really made an effort in decorating it and the place also has a Japanese vibe into it maybe because of the (fake) cherry blossoms that they put on the ceiling. lol

The first time we tried here last june there were
