Batu Cafe Davao

In the midst of looking for a good place to eat, I came across Batu Cafe. A uniquely designed restaurant with a bohemian and Asian feel. When you get inside, you can really tell that this will be a good place for a bestie meet up or just a chill place to eat alone or with friends.

We were invited by the owners last March to taste the wide variety of food they serve daily. Along with my friends from Davao Bloggers Society, we tried their breakfast staples, pasta, heavy meals, and desserts. Here are some of the food we tasted.

HAM & CHEESE FRENCH TOAST P139 - Ham and Cheddar sandwiched in thick slices of freshly baked homemade tasty bread, dipped in batter, and pan-grilled. Drizzled with maple syrup, served with orange marmalade butter.

HUNGARIAN CHILI DOG P229 - Open-faced sandwich of Hungarian sausage, chili con carne and cheese using homemade freshly baked bun
KOREAN PORK SPARERIBS AND CHAGIO P198 - Chagio: Crispy Vietnamese spring rolls w/ pork and vermicelli, served with nuoc cham sauce
VIETNAMESE CHICKEN AND BASIL FRIED RICE P169 - Spicy, saucy sauteed chicken in lemon grass and Asian spices, served w/ basil fried rice
ADOBO FLAKES RICE P198 - Crunchy chicken and pork Adobo flakes, with green mango and scrambled eggs on a bowl of rice. Serves 2-3
INDIAN CHICKEN CURRY W/ SAMOSAS P259 - Nutty curried chicken w/ assorted spices served with 2 pieces samosas and mango chutney
PANDAN CHICKEN W/ THAI BAGOONG FRIED RICE P269 - Pandan-wrapped fried chicken served w/ shrimp paste fried rice w/ 7 kinds of sidings

We actually ate a lot of homemade ice creams in different flavors - Mango, Ube, and Durian P65. Their Brownie Ala Mode P109 is super yummy too!

For my top choices - Ham and Cheese French Toast, Aligue Pasta, and Pandan Chicken. They have a wide menu to choose from, so I suggest you ask for recommendations from their friendly staff. They can help you pick the best dish for you. By the way, they also serve fresh juices, shakes, craft beers, and boutique wines.
