Ana Banana Davao Banana Loaf at Faregrounds Food Hall + Mart
Now Ana Banana’s banana loaf – in plain and in chocolate chips flavor – are available in the newly opened Faregrounds Food Hall + Mart at Door 3 Coral Quay Building in V. Mapa Street, Davao City. It is just right across Davao Christian High School Mapa Campus.
As of yesterday, they are also available per slice at P25. You can eat it inside. As courtesy, order drinks inside as there are milk teas, and even sundae as well. Try the bubble tea sundae while you are there.
The banana loaf is best consumed within three (3) days. Best eaten when freshly from the ref. The thing with us most of the time is that once we open it, it does not reach even 3 days. Often in a day or less, depending on mine or my boys’ appetite, the loaf is all gone. Consumed… eaten… enjoyed! We used buy the banana loaf at a known local bakeshop. It has been quite awhile since I bought one until I tasted and started buying from now on from @AnaBanana.Davao.
Introductory prices are as follows till March 31, 2019 only:
Plain banana loaf – P150
Banana loaf with chocolate chips – P150
Banana loaf with oatmeal & raisins – P170
Banana loaf with walnuts – P170
March Special flavor: Banana loaf with peanut butter &
roasted cashews – P200
There is another new special flavor for April and you will know what is new in the banana loaf for next month.
Regular prices for the Banana Loaf will start on April 01, 2019.
As a customer, we just need to earn and save more, to buy more. Hoarding good for a month’s supply even crossed my mind. But since the product is best consumed within 3 days, ideally that’s not a good thing to do. Plus my hubby seriously told me to diet as I was slicing the choco chip banana loaf after dinner last night. Tears welled up in both my eyes. He thinks it’s funny. I am not kidding. 🙂
My little guy and I have their choco chip variety as our fave so far.
Anyway… for inquiries and orders:
You can send them a private message to @AnaBanana.Davao on Instagram and Facebook.

My last stop with the Davao Food Crawl was at Cuencos Rice and Noodle Bar located at Tulip Drive in Matina, Davao City. It is in the building right across the entrance gate of Fuente de Villa-Abrille Subdivision.
It is a clean and cozy homegrown resto which for me is one ideal option good for Sunday dinner with your family. It’s your go to restaurant in the neighborhood when you crave for Asian rice and noodle dishes served in a bowl.
The word CUENCOS is Spanish for earthenware bowls. The idea behind Cuencos is to bring a certain comfort in serving familiar and flavorful food in bowls. Perhaps this has to do with how we learned to eat in a bowl or when we sip warm soup to make us feel better that serving food in “cuencos” just brings it right at home.
I spotted a family of three who dined in when we were there. A nice place to spend dinner and quiet time as we are about to end the weekend.
We had the whole resto to ourselves for awhile when I took this photo shortly before dinner time that Sunday.
Spotted a foodpanda rider or delivery guy. Actually spotted three different riders who picked up food orders when we were there.
I actually like sometimes dining in a resto where there are no other customers. Just me and my boys enjoying our food without any noise from other diners. Especially on a Sunday night when you just wanna relax for the last few hours of the weekend before another week of hustle and bustle especially during school weekdays.
The vibe perhaps may be a little different during weekdays especially going to the weekend when there are more people dining in.
For their Noodle Bowls, this bowl of Pad Thai (P170) was the first dish they served. It partly satisfied my craving for one which I have in mind for quite sometime now.
It can good for one if you are really craving for one or good for sharing with a friend who wants a taste of Thailand as a friend would joke me with. *wink* Pad Thai is a stir-fried noodle dish and a known street food or resto food in Thailand.
For their Rice Bowls, they served us this bowl of Nasi Lemak (P185), a Malaysian inspired rice dish cooked in coconut milk
Bistek Tagalog (P195) served with rice and egg topped with chopped spring onion leaves and a few onion rings.
We wish to try to visit them again with my boys and try their other rice and noodle bowl dishes. Also wanna try their specials the mee goreng of fried egg noodles with sambal. Plus the desserts – leche flan with sago, and that fried suman with mango slices and latik that I saw on Instagram way before. Till our next visit.
They are with foodpanda, by the way, if ever you prefer to dine at the comfort of your home or when in your office.
Hoping though that they become included in our list of restos in the foodpanda app. I actually sent an email to the foodpanda support but got no reply yet until now for a request to have them stretch out the list to those as far as Cuencos since I have one resto listed in MTS The Good Food Co which is actually beyond the standard distance range under the app.
Cuencos is open from 11AM – 2PM and 5PM – 10PM DAILY.
One of my fave home grown restos in our Davao Food Crawl is perhaps The Good Food Co. (TGFC). I enjoyed our time tasting and eating good food with the company of fun foodie friends.
The Good Food Co. is a Filipino-Western Fusion restaurant that aims to bring Good Food and Great Company in Davao City.
TGFC offers choices of good food using quality ingredients from suppliers that are within Davao City and Mindanao. It is a good thing that our local homegrown restos such as them love and support local producers and their products.
Dessert comes first… and since it was around mid afternoon when we were there, I went to taste their Mango and Graham Crepe first. For the love of dessert with mango!
It has been awhile since I had freshly made crepe with slices of delicious mango. It was good dessert and perfect for summer time. This one is good for sharing unless you want to indulge in this dessert all on your own.
The crepe dessert is served with their own home made ice cream.
Home made vanilla ice cream was gone fast as it was passed around for everyone to taste. They have no stock at that time of their oreo ice cream. I will be back with my boys sometime to try that one. 🙂
For appetizers at TGFC, you can try these…
Buffalo Chicken Wings covered in buffalo hot sauce to spice up your dining adventures with your foodie friends.
I ate these chips below alternately with their quesadilla. They have a good dip for it too called aioli or garlic mayo which I assume is made of mashed garlic with mayonnaise and olive oil.
For pasta lovers, they have these choices for you…
TGFC Carobonara using linguine pasta in a cream sauce topped with bacon bits and parmesan cheese. This is a classic fave pasta especially by the younger ones.
Pomodoro with slow simmered tomato sauce topped with basil.
Aglio y Olio is their classic Italian spaghetti with garlic, shrimp and olive oil. Topped with parmesan cheese. Simple yet delicious!
I enjoyed these pasta dishes but perhaps the quintessential pasta dish of their aglio y olio was my fave during this particular visit.
Their classic creamy Mushroom Soup with their own twist was the one I kept on getting perhaps most on our visit too.
I had a craving for one which I satisfied by making at home recently. But I guess this soup got me going as I listened to my companions chatting the afternoon away while we were waiting to go to the next resto.
TGFC used a mix of seafood instead of the usual chicken. It is creamy. This dish got me with its creamy sauce.
Speaking of salad, when you crave for something healthy and with less guilt, have the TGFC Caesar Salad with grilled chicken breast in cajun seasoning.
It’s indeed nice to be back in TGFC as this was something I looked forward to in our food crawl! Good food and fun company… what can you ask for? Consistent good food of course for every loyal TGFC customer!
The warm welcome of the very friendly Chef Rolando “Choy” Cebro Lildo III (middle) at TGFC was really appreciated. He also warmly welcomed us in Blah Blah Blah during a previous visit which made a very good impression.
Because as a customer, you would love dining in a resto especially a proudly home grown Davao resto where the chef enjoys cooking the food and serving that food to diners and loyal customers. The staff are also friendly which I hope remains consistent through and through.
TGFC has mostly the same menu as their Blah Blah Blah resto in JJ’s Commune in Loyola Street of Obrero, except that Blah3x has steak and other dishes not with TGFC menu. So if you are from the south, there is reason to visit and dine their new resto in Obrero too.
Check out the catering packages by the way of TGFC.
The Good Food Co is located at Row of Restaurants 3 in Matina Town Square (MTS), in Matina, Davao City. It’s on the right side row upon entering the inner part of MTS.
Their cute and nicely decorated stairs makes me think always of feeling at home in a cozy home-grown resto.
Follow Facebook and Instagram accounts of @thegoodfoodco and @blah3xPH to get updates especially when they have promos like the buy 1 take 1 on all their main course dishes recently plus their graduation and summer promos.
