Boy Zugba SM Ecoland Davao City is a Bisaya-restaurant located at the second floor of SM City Ecoland, Davao.
Last weekend, the whole family was strolling around at SM City Ecoland. It was about lunch time already and we looked for restaurants starting from the Annex building going into the Main building of the mall.
We looked at the restaurants at the 2nd floor and decided to dine at Boy Zugba SM Ecoland Davao City.
There were just few people yet when we got inside the restaurant because it was only a quarter past eleven o’clock in the morning.
Looking at the menu, we ordered lechon kawali because it is little Pumpkin’s favorite.
For the soup, we ordered the spicy Lapu-lapu. We also ordered Pancit Palabok and kinilaw which is Mr. Hubbs favorite.
Ambiance at Boy Zugba SM City Ecoland Davao City
When you get inside the restaurant, you will be amazed at the theme and creativity of it owners. You will see “hugot” lines displayed at the walls of the restaurant.
It has an industrial theme interior with embellishments that appeal to the young generation.
When we dine at any restaurant, there are considerations we factor in first. One is the price. We consider our budget first.
Second is the food. Depending on our mood, we factor in what kind of food we want for that particular dining adventure. This time around, its Filipino grilled goodies and this restaurant did not disappoint.
The kinilaw is delicious. It is a mixed of tuna and lato. Super yummy.
The pancit palabok is delectable. It is topped with shrimp, crushed chicharon and scallions. It is only god for 1 person (if you are a heavy eater 🙂 )
Lechon Kawali is deliciously cooked garnished with scallions and red bell peppers. You have 3 choices of the dip – hot sauce, green mango with bagoong and the gravy sauce.
I personally loved the Hinalang na Sinigang that we ordered. It is a soup consisting with fried sliced Lapu-lapu with a tamarind broth and mixed with water spinach. It is simply delicious.
For our drinks, we ordered watermelon cooler which is their best seller. It is in a pitcher which is already good for 3-4 people.
If you are a big group, this restaurant also offers various boodle for you to choose from. They have the Karne-vorous which is obviously lots of karne or meat dishes, the Seafood (seafood goodness) and Meat me at the Sea – a mix of seafood and meat.
If you want to fry Filipino goodness and a millennial vibe restaurant, then Boy Zugba is a must visit. Prices are competitive and you will be treated to an ambiance that is youthful, with posters of hugot lines making you smile and giggle.
