If you're looking for Filipino comfort food, Davao foodies know where to head to—Rekado. They have a wide selection of Pinoy favorite dishes prepared with a twist to heighten the flavors and satisfy our cravings.

“For the Kadayawan menu, we are bringing in the classic Filipino dishes,” said Chef Pauline Benedicto-Mallillin. Six new dishes on Rekado’s menu starting this Kadayawan month and they will make it permanent entries on their menu.

Crispy Dinuguan with Chicharon and Burong Mangga
So crispy yet tender pork belly on a rich stew. Their homemade burong mangga is added balance the richness of this dish.

Oyster Dinakdakan
It is deep-fried oyster meat tossed in a seasoned creamy dressing with onions and chilis dressing.

Corned Beef and Bone Marrow Bulalo

The stock of this generous dish is stewed for hours with aromatics and tasty beef cuts. The corned beef is specially made for Rekado with no preservatives. This is served with a beautiful cut of bone marrow that is seasoned finely and oven baked.

Inihaw na Liempo

The pork belly is charcoal grilled to infuse smokiness, while brushing with a flavorful marinade until flavors are well incorporated. 

Chicken Adobo sa Gata

This all-time Filipino favorite is delicious in itself but the coconut milk takes this dish to another level by adding creaminess to the sauce. Best enjoyed with extra rice. =)

Seafood Platter

On Rekado’s Davao Seafood Platter are the treasures our waters so graciously provide: the tuna panga, bagaybay, bihod and imbao. These are marinated in a spice paste and barbecued with a special marinade.

Rekado Filipino Comfort Cuisine is at 1050 Jacinto Extension 11-B Poblacion District, Davao City, with telephone numbers (082) 284 2136; (082) 224 3031. They are also open for breakfast and merienda.
