Visiting Rego's Cafe Again

Change is an integral part of our lives. You have to deal with these changes and cope with them if you want to survive. But change can be a scary thing. I am always anxious about changes in my life. And the same thing applies with my food choices. I get readily scared to try out something new in fear that it might not be as good as what I'm used to. I find myself going to the same restaurant over and over again to the point that the staff recognize me personally, if not by name at least by face. 

Before Rego's Cafe moved to Gaisano Mall The Peak, they were situated at Arellano Street, Jacinto Ext. Davao City. Even though that is still near downtown area, it is not part of our usual route. And yet, that did not stop us from dropping by every few months especially when I do get some cravings for their famed pasta dishes.

Surprisingly, a recent visit to Rego's Cafe did not consist of any pasta meal on our table, though. It was all about comfort food items! It was also nice to vary things up so we do not end up eating the same dishes repeatedly whenever we dine at Rego's.

Chili Con Carne - Good but far from great. Aling Foping's Chili con Carne is still the best with De Bonte Koe's being a close second. There were more ground beef in this Chili con Carne than beans - there should be an equal ratio of both ingredients. The sauce did not redeem it either because it was rather so-so. And the serving size was even disappointing for the price! It's one of those times wherein we seriously question whether it's worth taking a risk ordering new items rather than sticking with the ones we've tried before. Lessons learned.

Gambas al Aljillo - This was another disappointing choice. I cook Gambas at home all the time and I can proudly say mine is better! I was happy with the size of the shrimps, though - that was the redeeming quality of this dish for me. And the plating was not bad at all.

This last dish we got was Rego's own version of Fish 'N Chips. A tiny tray comes with a serving of French fries and battered chicken fillet. Surprisingly, this might be the best out of the three dishes we've ordered. The batter on the chicken fillet is light enough that we can chew on the meat but it has maintained that crunchy texture to it. Both the meat and fries were also well seasoned. The only downside is that this was supposed to be an appetizer. However, this was the last dish served on our table. Was it supposed to be dessert, then?

What is your favorite dish at Rego's Cafe?

Sea Green Cafe and Lifestyle Shop Celebrates First Anniversary with Lunch Buffet

For the new year, one of my resolutions (albeit the fact that I've tried avoiding making one) is to observe a healthier lifestyle - and that comprises regular exercise and healthy eating habits. But when I am eating out, it is difficult to stay within your diet restrictions because you do not know exactly what goes into preparing your dish. Thankfully, healthier dining options such as Sea Green Cafe and Lifestyle Shop had sprouted in the city making it possible to dine out guilt-free.

And here's some more good news - Sea Green Cafe and Lifestyle Shop is going to celebrate its first anniversary on Sunday, January 19th.

Hence, you can drop by any day of the week to sample their dishes. They are open from 11:30am to 10:00pm on Mondays to Saturdays, while they cater to guests from 10:30am to 9:00pm on Sundays.
