5. Cecil’s Snack Inn & Bakeshoppe
When you say Pancit Luglug in Davao City, there’s no other place to go but Cecil’s in Anda. Its just one of their bestsellers and Davaoeños look forward to having it for snacks along with their cheese bread or pan de siosa. If you would opt for a hot steaming bowl of batchoy, they also have it in the menu. Their chicken and durian pies are great for pasalubong. So if you want to experience a Davao snack favorite, try Cecil’s treats.
6. Davao Dencia’s Restaurant
You have not tasted Davao food until you have eaten at Davao Dencia’s Restaurant. As far as I can recall, Dencia’s has figured in a lot of special occasions in my life--- confirmation, first communion, graduation from both elementary and highschool and on days and nights that I needed my comfort food of lugaw and tokwa’t baboy. There’s nothing fancy about how they cook their pancit, lumpiang shanghai, chopsuey, lomi or the famed lugaw and tokwa’t baboy but its going back to a place that reminds you of a noisy kitchen in the comfort of your home. Dencia’s is synonymous with Davao.

Don't forget the overall ambience that's environment-friendly.
