The Foodie Find Review: Lachi's Sans Rival Atbp in Davao City

by - May 21, 2011

When I was in Davao City (for almost 3 years), I thought nothing can beat Ctres as my favorite. But the day I swore I won't eat beef anymore for the sake of all cows on earth, Tong Yang - a Korean restaurant became a top choice. I must have fixed with that until I joined the Davao Food Appreciation Tour 2011. So you're wondering what's my favorite now?

A lesson learned: Don't Stick with Favorites, instead be open-mouthed and be ready to explore. Delicious food can be found anywhere. And my new find? Tantaran... Lachi's San Rival atbp. It is just a small restaurant/shop along Ruby Street, Marfori Heights, but the twin owners Mike and Melvin Aviles pride themselves on preparing dishes and baking fresh cakes.

Upon entering, the smells were so right. Inside you can see tables and chairs occupying most space of the restaurant, the menus and a periodic table of the desserts were posted on the wall, and of course the display of a variety of snacks and cakes.

The rest of the DFAT participants seated on the long table when a nice lady gave us trays and told us to wait a few minutes and our food will be served. After a few minutes, a miracle comes (biglang umulan ng pagkain).

They served Unforgettable Pork Ribs, when you take a bite, it's so tender, after a few chew, you can utter "unforgettable nga".

Beef Tapa & Oriental Friend Chicken

Chili con Carne & Bangus Belly

Laing & Adobong Bangus Belly

Pork Marinara & Oriental Pork Surprise

But the happiest miracle of all - plenty of desserts, especially if you have a sweet tooth. The desserts are a mixture of cheesecake and their special San Rivals.

Lachi's offers to their customers different San's Rival including the classic, coffee, and durian I think :) It is the Sans Rival that Lachi's is known for.

Aside from Sans Rival, Lachi's also bakes various cakes and tortes.

Btw, you can order cakes at Lachi's Sans Rival ATBP for any special occasions such as birthday, wedding, or Sans Rival to make friends get together more memorable and sweet :D
