7. Swiss Deli
One that I really fell in love with was the Swiss Deli, located along J.P. Avenue in Lanang. It is very close to the newly built Park Inn Radisson and SM city Lanang.
It has been the rage in Davao since 2003, but 10 years after it started operations, it remains one of the most visited dining establishment in the city. And it has since started distributing their products to Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao through various malls and supermarkets.
The Swiss Deli in Davao City is a quaint little restaurant that serves authentic Swiss delicacies.
