Martial Law be Damned. Adtu ta sa Buda!

Martial Law be damned. There’s no better way to spend the weekend than to go on a froad (food road) trip to Buda in Marilog District to cool off and escape the city noise.

Unlike a few years back when you can’t find a decent place to eat, Buda (Bukidnon-Davao boundary) on the highlands of Davao City, is slowly transforming into a foodie destination. There are now quite a number of quaint restos that serve good food. Plus, the view each resto offers is nothing short of amazing.

Here are three of our favorite eat digs in Marilog:

La Toscana

They serve some of the best pasta and pizza in Davao City. Their fresh noodle seafood pasta alone is worth the more than an hour drive. They also have a branch in Tionko Avenue in Downtown Davao, but their pizza tastes much better at their Buda branch. Both branches use the same recipe, but the long travel to get there makes the food taste much better.

 

Seagull Mountain  Resort Steakhouse

This roadside restaurant has become the unofficial pitstop of motorists traveling to and from Bukidnon to Davao City. What made them famous is their delicious suman and sikwati combo. Your travel to Buda will not be complete if you don’t try this.

 

Wild Berry Resto
This rustic restaurant just before the quarantine stop in Lorega, Buda serves the most mouthwatering pork tenderloin steak in that part of the map. They also make a mean four berries shake with wild berry, that grows in their nearby farm, as their main ingredient.

 

 

Public advisories keep telling people to keep off crowded places, so what better place to go to than Buda. Tara na, adto ‘ta sa Buda.

White House on Top of a Hill

The Island Garden City of Samal (IGaCoS) used to be known as the Moncadista Island, because it was once a colony of the Moncadistas, a religious group noted for eating only raw and uncooked food. In the late 1930’s they built two camps in Barangay Limao — Camp 23, a 23-hectare residential area for its members and Camp 19, a 19-hectare cultural heritage property where the White House is located.

The White House is where the group’s founder, Hilario Camino Moncado, used to occasionally stay. However, it was abandoned after its leader passed away at an early age. The property is still owned by the group and it is said that there are plans to renovate it and transform it into a tourism heritage center.

The house, which stands on top of a hill, gives visitors an amazing view of the Davao Gulf and the adjacent Davao City. It is not too far from the wharf in Babak, but the roads going up are a little rough. It is worth a visit though.
