Where to Eat in Davao: Bulca Chong Restaurant

Bulca Chong is a Davao specialty dish made from carabao (water buffalo) meat. It is a popular dining place among Davaoeños who are looking for a late night meal. Each bowl of Bulca Chong comes with several pieces of carabao meat drenched in a steaming hot bowl of orangey-looking soup. One serving costs 90 pesos which could be shared by 2 persons. The meat is so tender that you'll never have a hard time chewing it. The soup somehow tastes bulalo with a rich flavor of ginger. It's the first-time I've tasted Bulca Chong and I really liked it.
