Hey, everyone! I’m so back from a long hiatus. Yeah, I know it’s been a while since I last posted an entry. But I have now the reason to sit, face on the screen and write. I’m also in the mood to. Haha! 😁 ✌
So, this last Sunday, we attended the dedication for Baby Elizabeth Hope. And I’m always glad to be a godmother to a new born baby. Though my number of inaanaks (godchildren) is increasing, it’s fine with me. At least, I have the motivation to work hard and save up money to buy gifts for them this December. Hohoho. And the flattering part is when parents choose me to be one of the godparents because they trust me (Really, guys? Haha!).
But before heading to the event, Lois and I, went out for late breakfast. I was craving for Sinigang. And fortunately, Saging Repablik is already open at 9am on Sundays. This place has a lot to offer to their customers. Filipino food with a twist… a banana twist. Hence, the name of their restaurant. (Isn’t it obvious? Ha! 😏)
Banana is saging in tagalog. Banana production is extremely important to Mindanao and the Philippines as a whole. It wasn’t my first time to visit the place, but my third time actually. And I tried some of their best-sellers. The “create your bananacue (fried banana) station” is one of the exciting part of the place. Wherein you can select your own bananacue, choose your dip (e.g. caramel, chocolate, white chocolate), then choose three toppings, see the result and taste it! 😉
So, here are the photos I took for you guys. Enjoy! 😘😊
Their Sinigang Shrimp. Lami kaayo! (So delicious!)
Their Spareribs with Banana Barbeque Sauce. The traditional Filipino Pork Adobo with a banana twist! 😉
If you’ve noticed, they have mannequins anywhere. Before leaving the place, you can check their shop and bring something for your family and friends (especially if you are a tourist).😉 They sell shirts, dried bananas, bags, bracelets, mugs, blouses, etc.
To tourists: If you find yourself visiting Davao, I’d highly recommend Saging Repablik. And sure you’ll love it! 😉
And to my fellow Davaoeños, have you ever tried their food? If so, feel free to leave a comment below. I’d love to hear your reviews! 🍴😃
