A Different High... On a Saturday Gone By (Part2)

Davao Food Appreciation Tour or DFAT is a day of meet-up for bloggers. We in Gensan group, were invited to join the Davao bloggers for the DFAT Year 2. Also present were Manila bloggers and a representative from Cagayan de Oro.

DFAT Participants, March 14, 2009

After the successful Outland Adventure trip, everyone of us were all so hungry. We were divided into two groups after that. And the man, Bariles himself was lucky to have booked a food galore trip with Ranchero Grill Davao. With us were Davao bloggers Lyle, Brendel, Migs, Christian and Cagayan blogger Chiq.

Ranchero Grill
Tionko Avenue cor. Arellano St., Davao City

Function Room

We were all so lucky to be given first class accommodation and dined in their function room.

And the following pics are those foodies goodies we feasted upon. I cannot describe the feeling of having dined in a very classy restaurant, fine dining at its goodness. Everything was just excellent, the friendly waiters and the nice ambience. Everything in Ranchero Grill is worth a try. If you are in Davao, book a lunch here!

Seafoods Platter

This is uber delicious, me being a lover of seafoods is quite pleased that this platter was served right in front of me. Holy cow! Was I lucky?

Angus Feast Babyback Ribs

And speaking of holy cows, here's the best baby back ribs I have tasted, called Angust Feast, this made all of us drool. The hunger went away because of this, and speaking of the growling tummies we had, it was still grumpy when we went in; the grumpiness of our tummies were silenced by the Angus Feast.

Fried Quail

I was surprised to know that this little fried thing in our platters were quails. I have never tasted a quail in my life, except I guess for the quail eggs which are being sold on groceries and bus terminals. This one is a goody. Tastes like chicken, what do you expect?

Beef Pochero

I so love this saucy beef pochero they served us, went well with the crabs that was included in the platter.

The Feast Platter

You can get this whole platter, good for four persons, for only P750.00 depending on the dish inclusions on the platter. This platter included 2 large crabs, shrimps, vegetable salad, kinilaw, fried pugo and barbecue.

Ranchero's Yummy Kinilaw

Why is Kinilaw popular in Davao and Gensan? This is the question asked by Caryn, she was served with this famous kinilaw when she stepped in Davao last Juanuary. Probably because Davao and Gensan is famous with its Tuna Industry. We serve the best tuna belly, tuna sashimi, and other Tuna products.

Barbecue, every Pinoy's favorite.

Already loaded.

Gensan and Davao Bloggers

Already with smiles on their faces because of the sumptuous meal prepared before us.

Ranchero Rating: 5 stars!
