Food Restaurant Review Worth the Weight

Food Trip at Red Corner Burger Cafe and Tiny Kitchen (Dulce Vida)

Red Corner Davao

I still get random cravings for Red Corner’s Pacman burger and TK’s red velvet cheesecake.

Which is quite unfortunate because I’m trying, trying, to lose weight. 🙁

Well, anyway, for those of you who can afford to eat burgers and cheesecakes without worrying about their figures (let’s switch lives? no? okay), especially if you’re planning to grace Davao City with your presence, you need to visit both Red Corner and Tiny Kitchen.

Red Corner Burger Cafe

Red Corner is a small ~ actually it’s tiny ~ boxing-themed burger place in downtown Davao. If you’re not careful, you can easily miss it. But it’s worth the trip.

The place is not the only thing that is boxing-themed; their burgers are, too. I don’t know a lot about boxing — heck I don’t even always watch Manny’s fights — so let’s leave that detail out shall we lol. Let’s talk about the food instead.

Sarah and Jona, my work colleagues, including Sarah’s hubby, Xandy, have already been there before and they recommended two burgers to me: Pacman and El Terible. Since I am only one person and can eat just one burger at a time (Yuri was there but cannot eat an entire burger on his own), I opted to buy a Pacman for dine in and order an El Terible, to go.

Summer Destinations Travel

A Leisurely Diversion at D’Leonor Inland Resort and Wavepool

D'Leonor Inland Resort and Wavepool

One of the joys of living in Davao City (a big city with a suburban feel) is the proximity to different kinds of destinations. In the south where many of my friends live, a 3o to 45-minute ride will take you to cool highland resorts. If you want to go further, you can go to Buda, an even colder destination, which is still within the city (here’s a weekend getaway at Buda that I had last December!).

In the north, where I live, lovely white sand beaches like Villa Amparo are just 20-30 minutes away. When I was still studying, we would decide to go to the beach if we had a long vacant period and return to school just in time for our next class! Cool beans.

Now, in the part of the city where I live, there’s this inland resort that opened a few years ago that’s just a literal 5-minute ride from my house. D’Leonor Inland Resort is a pretty big tourist destination since there’s no other inland resort and wavepool aside from it, but would you believe that I’ve never been to it?

Well, that changed a couple of weekends ago. My parents celebrated their 32nd anniversary (ZOMG I hope I got the correct number LOL!) and, for a change, decided to visit the resort instead of just going out for lunch. Of course we agreed!

It was quite a last minute decision so we didn’t have time to book a room. Since it’s just a stone’s throw away from home, we decided to just make a quick tour around the place.
