For the month of April I will be blogging alphabetically with the theme of Winnipeg versus Davao City. Not to prove a winner but simply to explore the differences and similarities between my home town and my current location.
R is for Restaurants!

Winnipeg has a lot of steak houses, lots of Indian, Italian, sushi, Vietnamese, Thai, Greek, Chinese... recently there have been some good Mexican, Spanish, Southern BBQ... plus a few Korean, Ethiopian, Australian and of course fusion places.
|Picabellos at JS Gaisano is a popular Italian place in Davao.|
Davao has more Japanese, Korean, Filipino (duh), and seafood joints. Plus general Mediterranean, European and Asian places.
|The Swiss Deli in Davao has an amazing selection of European eats.|
I can only think of three cross-overs right now... Pizza Hut, McDonald's and KFC are in both cities.
|Evan tells me that Winnipeg used to have Shakey's but Davao was the first time I had it!|
If you happen to like Surf 'n Turf, you'll need to visit both places. Davao has the fresh Surf and Winnipeg has the fresh Turf. Food is one of the most fun things about travel.
|We used to enjoy brunch at the Star Conservatory in Winnipeg.|
|Sydney's at The Forks in Winnipeg was a fun treat.|
|In Davao, you can go out for Durian!|
|The Mediterranean Cafe in Davao actually has food from countries all around the sea, not just Greece! It has always driven me nuts that Mediterranean food meant just Greek. There are so many great cuisines around that little sea!|
|Bon Appetit is one of our absolute favourite places to eat at in Davao!|
|If you go early enough to the Outback Grill, you can see Mt Apo.|
|If you go later on Friday or Saturday, you can watch the fire dancers. Either way they have the best burgers and steaks in Davao.|
