“Back to reality,” someone from the FoodPrints team said as we were walking down the plane at the NAIA Terminal 3. I told myself to avoid the dinner table for a while. The more I don’t see live food, the more I crave for all the food that I photographed and we attacked in Davao.
Lachi’s in Davao City is known for its literally unrivaled Sans Rival cake. You’ll love it that it’s not overtly sweet, yet still loaded with devilish buttery frosting alternating with extrafresh crunchy layers. The whole time we were there, the place was packed. I checked what the locals were eating. Cake and Ulam.
Plain laing as it is at Lachi’s was unforgettable. But for those who are courageous enough to try something different such as laing pasta, they have this laing sundae with lechon kawali as the cherry on top that looks deadly good (like my friend commented when he saw the pic on my FB timeline just awhile back)
The Chinese red pork belly (upper right in photo above) haunts me in my dreams. It has this character that’s unique on the palate.
Of course, don’t leave Lachi’s without trying the durian cheesecake. Yum! It’s the wonder cheesecake, go figure.
