Mesa has been in SM Lanang Premier for quite sometime already. But we always pass it by.
Yesterday, together with my sister and her kids, we chose to try their food instead of going to the usual places I go to.
You know, that turned out to be a good decision. When we came in, the staff were very accommodating. Our waiter, Ton , gave us the menu. They had a wide selection and everything looked good.
But I opted for their Inihaw Sampler. It consisted of prawns, mussels, squid, pork bbq , grilled porkchop and grilled chicken leg. This platter of goodness is delicious! 🙂
I also asked Ton what would he recommend for soup. He said that their best seller is chicken binakol.
From what I understand, the soup is made of buko juice. When it was served to us, there were coconut strips in it. My first time to have tried one. 🙂 It tasted good. But I don’t think it’s going to be my favorite. I love buko. But I prefer it to be the “juice” , not the soup. he he…
The place is cozy, specially with the local bamboo and rattan décor. And the price is just right. For 5 adults and 1 kid, I believe that the bill of Php1,500.00 was ok. Considering that we had unlimited ice tea and we ordered rice of course. 🙂
I found the bathroom to be very clean too. I mentioned this in my blog before I know. I prefer to eat where I know that the bathroom is clean. Does not matter if it’s carenderia! 🙂
Mesa is located at the back of SM Lanang Premier . Just head towards the fountain area. You won’t miss it. Contact Info: www.mesa.net.ph
Of course we had to pose right? LOL
If you’re in Davao, try visiting the place. You won’t be disappointed if you want local Filipino dishes. 🙂
