Blue Carabao

April 27, 2009

Blue Carabao is an eatery (“karinderya”).

Its not hard to find. Because at night, you’ll quickly see the blue lights.. Plus, among the eateries in that street, its the only palce with a lot of people are eating.

It was Blogie who introduced me to this dinning place.


There are a lot of items on the menu with verrrrrry affordable prices. I ordered:

  • Pork Binagoongan (P30).
  • Lechon Kawali (P48)
  • Hinalang (P35)
  • Rice (P8)
  • One Manggo Fruit (P30)

All of the items that i ordered (i hope i got the prices right) are good for 2 people. (Hindi po ako malakas kumain, takaw tingin lang). I saw chicken curry (P35), but decided not have chicken.

It was my first time to eat Hinalang. Its carabao meat with HOT  “sabaw” (due to the heat and spice- sili). In tagalog its called “Nilagang Baka” (with a twist!). It was delicious! It was served in a big bowl that can be shared by two people.

I told my officemates about it. And i was surprised to find out that they know about the place. And I asked them why they didn’t tell me about it so that i could have enjoyed great tasting but less expensive food!

So now, I have two super favorite places to eat here in Davao… First is Lachi’s, and now, Blue Carabao!

Oh, they should offer more deserts aside from fruits….

Blue Carabao is located along Sobrecarey St., near Victoria Plaza Mall.

(I hope they join the Davao Food Appreciation Tour!)


Blue Carabao’s website is up!

    Hi Migs,just wanted to update you and your readers on the latest goings on at “Carabao Land” We had to close the “Blue Carabao” Eatery on May 15/2011 because the wonderful person who owns the spaces we rent wanted to increase our rental fee from P24,000 to P40,000 per month.She sees all the customers and thinks that we are rich,but the truth is that so many people come into the “Blue Carabao” eatery,order food and share with two or three other people because of our large serving size. We could have afforded that increase in space rental fee,but i refuse to support or do business with people who go above the law as space rental fees are restricted to 10% per year. We knew she was going to do this as we seen so many of our business neighbors in the same building get hit with huge space rental rent increases so we look for another location before we would be the landladies next target. We are now located on 146 Monteverde St,corner of Alvarez,across the street from the City of Davao Central Fire Station.just up from Magsaysay Park and all the local dive shops. Just look for the big blue building to find some of the most affordable,best tasting,safe food in all of Davao City.We will save you a seat.

    Sad to hear that you had to transfer. But i’m sure your patrons will be coming to your new location.

    I’ve updated the blog post. 🙂
