    ‘KADAYAWAN SA DABAW FEAST’ at The White House Fusion Cuisine

    The Kadayawan sa Dabaw Festival is definitely a feast of the senses as Dabawenyos thank the gods for nature’s bountiful harvest of the land and the seas which happens every month of August.

    Davao City then comes alive with sights and sounds so colourful and delightful that draw crowds from near and far to take part in the much-anticipated Kadayawan festivity.

    The Kadayawan spirit takes dancers to the streets beating to the rich bass sound of the Agung and the indigenous music of Davao City’s ethnic diversity

    Kadayawan colors beautifully leap into one’s eyes in a joyful prayer of offering to the gods for a continued harvest of blessings for the Dabawenyos.

    And this August, The White House Fusion Cuisine and Wine Lounge joins in the month-long festivity with a food festival so special that would make Kadayawan sa Dabaw more memorable both for visitors and locals alike.

    Aside from its delectable degustation, ala carte and even Bento Boxes menu, The White House Fusion Cuisine and Wine Lounge has been known for, this time it treats diners to an array of sumptuous and delicious Filipino fare that would make one want for more for its Kadayawan sa Dabaw Feast offering.

    Ms. Cathy Binag, co-owner of The White House Fuision Cuisine and Wine Lounge, says diners could delighfully sink their teeth into the wonderful taste of the “Real Kare-Kare” made with sautéed roasted rice, Ox tail, Ox tripe, with separate peanut sauce and steamed vegetables.

    “It is not your every day Kare-Kare as it is home-cooked and made from scratch. The process is too tedious and time-consuming but it is, of course, cooked with so much passion and love so that you would really taste the difference of a Kare-Kare that is traditional and authentic,” says Ms. Binag.

    Then there is the ‘not your usual abodo’ fare as The White House Fuision Cuisine and Wine Lounge presents the ‘Twice-Cooked Adobo ala TBF’ which consists of Pork Pata Front with Pork Belly and Mashed Liver.

    Davao City has been known for its Tuna Kinilaw but at The White House Fusion Cuisine and Wine Lounge, the Kinilaw comes with a beautiful twist and an aromatic kick as it is known as ‘The White House Kinilaw.

    Taste also The White House Fuision Cuisine’s All Veggie Fried Lumpia in Pinakurat Vinegar which is good for those who want a fill of their vegetables.

    Ms. Binag said the Daing Na Bangus Belly with Salted Egg is also another winner as it best brings out the flavour and taste of Bangus that is also produced here in Southern Mindanao.

    The White House Fusion Cuisine and Wine Lounge likewise offers diners this Kadayawan month the Classic Binagoongang Baboy that tastes like no other.

    Diners would also be in for a delightful surprise with the desserts that The White House Fuision Cuisine and Wine Lounge has for the Kadayawan month of August aside from its famous Cheesecake, French Toast and Banoffee Pie that Chef Justin Sison creatively prepares.

    Come and celebrate Kadayawan Festival at The White House Fusion Cuisine and Wine Lounge located at The Camella North Point along J.P. Laurel Avenue.
