Cagayan de Oro has a big potential in terms of food tourism. Tourists come here not just for the adventures that the city can offer but also the variety of mouth watering Filipino foods we can bring to their plates. That is the main reason I am a big fan together with the rest of the bloggers in promoting our lovely city.
So there you go, Mommy Vivi picked her most recommended stall, just remember – its in between Tirso Neri St. (McDonalds Divisoria CDO), RN Abejuela St. (in front of the J.R. Borja Monument) and Tiano Brothers St. lies a pinoy food haven. Yes, the food bliss! A serve would cost around Php 40-60. Not bad if you are on a tight budget. This is surely different, not the fast foods but foods that depict our mixed culture. I bet Michael had fun eating at the Night Cafe, so with out any delay… presenting… (drum roll please) *wink
Chicken “Halang-halang” (literally translated as Chicken Spicy-Spicy) is a spicy chicken soup made of chili leaves, sliced chicken, and coconut. It is dubbed as the best food that will bring all emotions according to an this article on the Choose Philippines website. I’m not a big fan of spicy food but for Halang-halang, it’s a go!
Next in line is the Kare-kare, a traditional native stew mixed with peanut stew. This kare-kare from the CDO Night Cafe is one of the best in Cagayan de Oro, in line with Extra Ordinare at Ground Floor Robinsons in Limketkai Mall. All I can remember is the tender meat, eggplant, and the tasty peanut stew.
Kalderetang Kanding is present in almost all Filipino celebrations and fiesta. It’s a goat meat stewed with tomato sauce and potato.
Other than that, we also ordered Pansit, Puto and a serve of Macaroni Salad. Oh yeah, it was a heavy and engaging dinner. Burp!
