AiRod’s – The Newest Steak and Restobar at Davao

September 18, 2011

A close friend of mine, who loves eating more than I do, invited me for dinner yesterday. He brought me to one of his friend’s restaurant. Let me introduce to you then, AiRod’s.

AirRod’s is the newest steak and restobar located in the busy street of Torres, Ground Floor of Hotel Esse, Davao City. The name of the restaurant is the combination of the names of the owners. Air is from Aira. Rod is from Rodolfo. Aira is the name of the girlfriend of the older brother of Rodolfo.

The place is nice and serene. The service is good. I have even experienced the first hand service of the owners Mr Rodolfo and his very nice wife Ms. Pia. I let my friend order the food that we are going to eat since it was not his first time in this restaurant. We had Bulalo steak, Sisig and Dory.

 Bulalo Steak is their Best Seller

Sisig I love! is very tasty.

Dory! Oh I can still savor the spices.

I had two desserts. Leche Flan and Chocolate cake. Yum yum!

The food is great and affordable. So, come at AiRod’s and have a taste of their sumptuous meals. Visit and take a look of their beautiful place.

Typhoon Basyang in Davao

July 30, 2010

Here’s the scene when typhoon Basyang visited Davao City.

It really makes me think that there is a problem with the drainage system of the biggest city on earth despite of its accomplishments as the 1st city in the country to set up the CCTV and being a non-smoking zone. tsk! The city officials should check on this before its too late.

PS! “I am the pirate queen” is also known as Basyang (the term of endearment of her father). When someone calls her Basyang, that person is close to her heart. =D


Until death will do us part…

May 15, 2010

Best friends found dead in the water.

I and a friend were looking for a good restaurant near Victoria Plaza (Davao City, Philippines) when we found these two bodies floating. The other one was dead and the other was fighting for his/her/its life. The dead folk is already fulfilled with his/her/its purpose here on earth while the other is still struggling if he/she/it is deserving to live.

We found a dead cockroach and a live goldfish! Poor goldfish; I think he/she/it would only live for a few days. Her/His/Its place is so small that he/she/it can barely breathe and move.  The fish (maybe) was telling to his/her/its self, “Best friend cockroach I will always be here for you but how can I live when you have already poisoned my pool with your dead body. I’d better be dead than to live in this place where so many people eat but cannot see us here in pain.  See you on the other side of the world.”

Question! Did we eat in this restaurant? How can you eat in a restaurant which cannot even pass a simple sanitation test? Always change the water of the aquarium at least twice or thrice a week. Maybe, the goldfish and his/her/its friend cockroach were saved. Tsk!


For the owner/manager, you’re lucky I have not remembered the name of your restaurant. I chose not to remember it. Check the best Davao City Restaurants.
