Exquisite Dining at Antonio's Bar and Grill

Antonio's Bar & Grill is one of my favorite Filipino restaurants in the city. The branch that I always visit is the one located in SM City of Davao. What is nice about this food place is that the owners and its management keep on reinventing new dishes. Antonio's never settle for anything less that is why they always introduce something new and exciting in the market. They make sure that customers get the right amount of satisfaction from everything they serve on the table. Some of its latest roaster of dishes are the Sisig Pusit, Bagnet and Frozen Buko Pandan.

Sisig Pusit - Pampanga's specialty of pork sisig stuffed inside the liquid.

Bagnet - Ilocos famous crispy pork belly.

Frozen Buko Pandan - Filipino all time favorite classic dessert.

The three new dishes available at Antonio's were products of the collaboration of the said Filipino restaurant and a well-reknowned Davaoena chef. It was a privilege on my part to be one of the invited guests for Antonio's  launching of its new dishes and Valentine's promo offer for the year. Together with me were some members of the press and bloggers community of the city. Antonio's Bar & Grill served exquisite dishes that made everyone completely full and satisfied during the event. 

Crispy Pata - Deep fried pork knuckles served with soy-vinegar dip.

Inihaw or Crispy Tuna Belly - Deep fried tuna belly.

Dinakdakan - Spicy pork mascara blended with special ingredient & mayonnaise, vinegar and spices.

Sinigang na Hipon - Tamarind sour soup with shrimp and vegetable.

Crispy Bangus Sa Inadobong Kangkong at Gata - Crispy fried bangus topped with stewed kangkong and coconut milk.

Pinaputok na Manok - Deep friend seasoned chicken wrapped in banana leaves.

Balbacua - Stewed ox feet and skin cooked in Antonio's special sauce.
