Blue Carabao Diner, Davao City

One of our friends who was with us in our recent Davao trip (who was doing a paper on carabao meat) told us that we have to visit this place and check out what the fuzz is all about, so we did. I had some apprehensions that they may be serving only carabao meat, and that I will not enjoy.  But I was assured that they do serve other dishes too.
 The diner is located in Alvarez St in Davao City, near Magsaysay fruit stand and Chinatown.
This is Pochero, somewhat like the Tagalog nilaga, but with carabao meat, instead of beef (but they have that as well).  I tried a few bites, and found it to be good.  The meat was really tender and soft! Unfortunately, this is the only carabao dish that they serve, much to the dismay of our friend who was hoping to try other dishes.
And the adobo looks so good I had to try it too!
These beans look so fresh and crunchy so I had one as well! 
And these vegetable salad, or Lato, they looked so good, I had to try them too.  I have never eaten these before but I totally loved them! Cruncy and fresh, and spicy at the same time.  A real winner! 
And the best part, aside from the food being so good? It is so cheap! All of the dishes have, plus 3 orders of rice, only comes out to P181.00! Really best value for money!
The happy couple, looking so hungry, ha ha ha!

  1. Hiya !! Thanx for visitin us at the Blue Carabao. We love blogs like yours that tell it the way it is. We always tell our staff to be at their best because you never know who you are serving,case example,lol. We do have more than on soup that has carabao meat in it,it is called 'Hinalang',tender chunks of carabao in a spicy soup,we say,'taste the power of the carabao ' with our hinalang carabao soup.
    PS can we request you to make a comment on trip advisor,good or bad,we take em all and learn from them.
    PS we had a couple of other carabao dishers but because of low demand,we stopped offering the meals so as to not waste this wonderful health meat,
    Thanx again.
