[DFAT 2013] Mam Bebs


Our DFAT 1st Day, First stop was at Mam Bebs (formerly La Suerte Bakery). It is not just a bakery, they also serve food for lunch. We had light lunch at the same time meet up with DFAT 2013 Participants. I ordered Palabok and Pork Binagoongan meal for lunch. I shared my meal with blogger friends so as they can also taste the Pork Binagoongan. The meal comes with rice and noodle soup (mami) . I just couldn’t miss ordering the Palabok. For dessert, I was sharing a slice of chocolate cake with blogger friends. After a few minutes of looking around the store, I suddenly remember that I also wanted to order their Batchoy (noodle soup) and was asking friends if they want to share with me. But since everyone had ordered, well I just thought of visiting Mam Bebs again soon. But surprisingly, the pork binagoongan meal had a small bowl of noodle soup. It had somehow satisfy my noodle soup craving that day.

Here is what I had for lunch:

Davao has been popular not just of the abundant fruits we produce, the clean environment and the traffic free roads.With lots of tourist around the Philippines visiting our place for our nice beaches, lower standard of living, and affordable food, many tourist loves visiting Davao. Way back when there were a few restos from different places had opened in Davao, BBQ restaurants were a hit for us Davaoeno’s, we like to have a cup of rice and a few sticks of bbq with sawsawan(sauce) would satisfy our hungry tummy at a very affordable price. It has also been known for the good food especially what we call Sinugba (char-grilled meats & seafood).One of my favorite dishes among the Filipino food is the BBQ chicken, been doing food trip to find the best tasting BBQ chicken in town. This would be a good chance for me to do the BBQ chicken food trip.

Milk tea is one of the newest drink that had started last year. It had started to sprout on the local market, in Davao, many milk tea places had also opened. One of the newest who had just recently opened last March was Tea’Amo, a milk tea place owned by sisters who planned to open another coffee shop but decided to open a milk tea place instead since its the popular drink around town. 015-5

Davao Bloggers members were invited to join their Sweet Summer Soiree. The place was cozy, very colorful and looks so girly! Before they had decided to open this tea & coffee shop, they started to sell their milk teas by joining a tiangge at Garden Oases last December to know if there is a market for milk teas here in Davao. Aside from milkteas, Tea’amo also serves desserts, meals and pastas to go with their milk teas. Upon entering the place, we were told to order a cup of milktea, but since once again, I am not so fond of drinking anything sweet, I decided to try their Yakult series, I ordered their Strawberry Yakult w/ 50% sweetness w/ Pearls. It was good with the right sweetness for me.

Desserts were also served to us. Here are what we had awhile ago. My fave is the chocolate cupcake and the cheesecake. As for their meals, we hadn’t had the chance to try it. Would be back to try their pastas and pica-pica foods soon.
