Last May 10, 2008 Saturday after having dinner at Lachi’s – our first time there actually, we went to the grand opening of Kangaroo Coffee Company in Tionko Street corner V. Mapa Street, Davao City. It is just in front of Sunburst Chicken House and near Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas. You surely won’t miss the place with these landmarks. We received an invitation from Mr. Richard Hong, one of the owners of the new coffee shop and as we were busy during the day due to parent duties, we decided to go there in the evening instead as much as I would want to go there during the opening at 8AM. They also gave 20% discount from 7PM-9PM. There was a live band outside playing music from 3PM-11PM. It was a night of good company and music.
We had our food trip at La Toscana Italian Bar & Restaurant last night, finally after months of postponement, after we had a tour and photo shoot around People’s Park. 🙂 This little cozy Italian restaurant is located at Door 2 Dacudao Bldg., E. Quirino St., Davao City just beside BDO.
We rode a taxi from People’s Park as H said it is quite far if we just walk. Well I just had a fever that afternoon so I think it is unwise to walk too going to La Toscana if I still wanna enjoy the food trip. You won’t miss it as you will see this blue signage Pizzeria Ristorante Italiano hanging outside.
We immediately went inside excited to see what the place really looks like coz we have been searching online for photos of the place but we found nothing much. Anyway, there were only a few people inside. An Italian couple in a table near the entrance door and on the table next to them were two ladies with a girl. One of the ladies looks familiar aha she is from the same alma mater in college. I wanted to sit on the table for two near the entrance where we can see outside but H chose the table for two near the counter where actually the comfort room is just behind us. Well I realized that he chose the better place as we got better and closer shots. 🙂 Look how nice and cozy the place is! Notice those different kinds of uncooked pasta that they hang on strings above the counter? I did not notice that at first until I looked at this photo below. Nice idea and apt for the resto since they serve Italian pasta dishes!
