The 2012 edition of the famed Davao Food Appreciation Tour (DFAT) had its opening salvo at the Ranchero. The Filipino-inspired restaurant served up a delectable assortment of Filipino merienda dishes.
The merienda opened with fresh and fried lumpia and pancit canton. There were also servings of the classic Filipino merienda dish dinuguan with, of course, puto (rice cake).
The real stars of the afternoon were the delightuflly Pinoy kakanin: Tibok-Tibok, Suman sa Lihiya, and Sticky Rice with Mango. Everybody had their own favorite among the three. As for me, I liked them all but suman sa lihiya is one of my all time favorite kakanins so I loved that most.
The meal was complemented by the participants’ choice of Ranchero’s fresh fruit shakes: dragon fruit, melon, or honeydew.
