Kadayawan Feast of Flavours

Jul 30, 2012

I received a short notice from SM Davao to join the food tasting at 12NN in their food court Monday morning around 9:30AM. I invited Jong Paguia (http://jongsalon.blogspot.com ) and Lemuel Gabriel (http://captaincheap.tumblr.com )to join also. The event is the launching of SM Food court “Kadayawan Feast of Flavours” this August, featuring the King of all Fruits, Durian.

I was invited by a fellow blogger ms. Ria Abella to join a food tasting in Digos yesterday together with other bloggers and press including Ms. Joji Alcantara. When I knew that our food destination was at Fiesta Sorpresa in Digos, my memory flashback during the time somewhere February or March 2012 when Fiesta Sorpresa just opened their restaurant, I treat my family to a dinner buffet at Fiesta Sorpresa to try their food, but I just learned yesterday that they no longer serve buffet since May 2012, instead they are now offering ala carte.


Sir Allan Echano, owner of Fiesta Sorpresa is also a fellow photographer and we both attended Nikon seminar held at Ponce Suites last 2011.

Fiesta Sorpresa offers all time Filipino favorites available in every fiesta from all over the country.
