Effective September 21, 2020, Executive Order No. 50 series of 2020 entitled “An Order Providing For the Lifting of the 24-Hour Liquor Ban in Davao City” duly signed by Mayor Sara Z. Duterte has been released by the City Government of Davao City. We can now freely enjoy a glass of cold beer on a rainy night coupled with some of the best pulutan we can think of. Intimate gatherings with barkada and friends does not have to be a bore anymore! With booze coming our way, each get together will surely be livelier than before.
To make planning barkada get-togethers easier, Xpress Eats, an online food tray and delivery in Davao, now also offers appetizers on our menu. Choose from these luscious dishes and make your get-together even more special with booze and with our pika-pika meals.
Calamares Fritos. Golden, crunchy rings of fried squid with well seasoned spices and a whole lot of crisp. Paired up with our special Xpress Eats sauce, an elevated spin in your all time seafood favorite. This is often best paired with a fresh squeeze of lemon and well, buckets of chilled beer.
Crispy Chicken Skin. An automatic crowd’s favorite, enjoy your favorite street food with your family. This is home cooked for a crispier and tastier experience for everyone. Paired with spiced vinegar, this one tops the favorites of Filipinos when it comes to street food. This is best fit with cocktails like Lemon Sour or Margarita.
Chicken Buffalo Wings. Enjoy a set of crispy breaded chicken coated with just the right hint of hot sauce and butter that will surely leave you wanting more. With our combination of crispy skin, juicy chicken, drool-worthy sauce, and a rich and creamy sauce, this can be served on its own but it will be an absolute delight paired with Coke and Rum.
Fried Lumpiang Gulay with Sukang Sinamak. A simple fried appetizer dish made from vegetables. This delight comes with a Malagos signature sukang sinamak, aged for a better taste. This is a great pair with atsara, usually enjoyed as a condiment alongside authentic Filipino dishes. With its crispy texture and refreshing combination of sweet, sour, and spicy flavors, it is the perfect compliment to a vegetable lumpia. Even sommeliers have a tough time with Filipino foods — all the bold flavors and condiments common on the table can challenge the pairing powers of wine. Filipino-American cook-turned-sommelier Anthony Cailan (brother of Alvin Cailan of EggSlut and Unit 120) suggests finding a wine with “a mouthwatering acidity” to combat rich dishes like this one.
Crispy Sisig with Egg. This is no doubt, Filipinos’ favorites in every barkada night out. Enjoy this savory and extra meaty goodness at the comforts of your own home. Though more often served as an appetizer, Filipinos love making this the ultimate pulutan. Pair it up with ice cold San Miguel lager and you are good to go.
