Talk about great food, then Restaurant Damaso is the real deal! Located along corner Pabayo-Chaves Streets in downtown Cagayan de Oro City, the diner opened in September last year offering unique Asian fusion cuisine.
From the owners who brought you “Chino’s Deli”, the Mempin siblings are always on the go of finding the latest culinary treat…and #RestaurantDamaso has always something new and delicious in its menu.
Lets begin with CALAMARI (black ink mayo)…not the usual calamare because the squid is large and soft and goes with the black mayonnaise made from squid’s black ink.
Then we have the WARM MUSHROOM SALAD…uniquely prepared and really tastes like meat… good for vegetarians…and meat lovers for the Holy Week.
The SEASONAL FRUIT VEGETABLE SALAD. What makes this salad unique is the “couscous”, the tiny granules you see which are popular in North Africa and Middle East which is a good alternative of pasta.
Try their SPAGHETTI VONGOLE (Imbao lemon). Vongole is the Italian word for “clams”. As the name suggests it’s spaghetti with clams or shells and Imbao is a popular shell delicacy in the country…and then you have lemons of course.
The BACON STEAK is new on the menu. Chino’s Deli started out with bacon….might as well make a bacon steak.
GRILLED BLUE MARLIN – This serving is good for 2 or 3 and it comes with fried rice, chips and vegetable salad.
The SMOKED CHICKEN LEGS -3 chicken legs with fried rice, chips and vegetable… all in one.
Apart from the food, the restaurant’s ambiance is greatly influenced by minimalist design. On the walls are paintings of local artists.
The artworks currently on display are made by Meling Aboga-a.
Jars containing the herbs and spices used are on display.
There’s also a function room good for 25 to 30 pax.
By the smiles if their faces, you can say “FOOD IS GREAT”…
A specialty – FUEGO-TO-GO RIBS…mouth-watering.
CHICKEN GOCHUJANG – yes, it’s Korean…and yummy.
Your meal isn’t complete without dessert. Meet the SWEETS.
SALTED CARAMEL ICE CREAM
CREAM CHEESE ICE CREAM
The best-seller SIKWATE ICE CREAM (coconut snow)…all hand made.
CERVEZA ICE CREAM…with a taste of beer
See their menu below.
And guess what, Resturant Damaso has just been nominated as Cagayan de Oro’s Outstanding New Dine Destination by Courage Asia. Restaurant Damaso is certainly the best deal.
