Primo Cafe and Grille New Food Menu #PrimoDavao #SaPrimoNaTayo #DeliciousDowntownDining

Three years ago, we had our Skycrapercity Facebook Group Grand Meetup held here at Primo. And that was my first time to taste Primo Pesto Linguine and Mojito.

First impression really last, I feel in-love with this place.






PRIMO CAFE and GRILLE was borne out from a group of friends who loves to eat food and wanted to share their unique talent in making sumptuous dishes. The idea to have a place perfect for dining and the same time to have fun together with good friends.

From the restaurants' name itself "PRIMO" a Spanish word means a cousin, a close friend, a relative which connotes great bonding or a common bond of loyalty.



Primo or "prime" in English stands for a first in excellence, quality and value. A state or time greatest strength, a vigor and success in a person's life.


Primo New Food Menu Tasting

Glad to read an invitation post at Davao Bloggers group that Primo is looking for 15 Bloggers to take time taste their new featured menu dishes at their restaurant. So, I grab the opportunity since I also have a meeting at 3pm in that the same area. It will be a great privilege to be the first person to taste their newest addition to their menu.


Food Tastes Better When Hungry

June 18, 2015, 11:30AM, a day that we feel that buzz among us and hungry to taste the new menu from Primo Cafe and Grille.

Started with a welcome speech from Mr. Alex Tiaoqui, Primo Cafe and Grille's General Manager.




Followed by the launching of the said delectable new dishes, starting with the BAR CHOW & STARTERS(appetizers).


TUNA SASHIMI DIABLO 
PHp165

Tuna Sashimi served with crispy wanton chips





CHEESE STICK FLAUTAS 
PHp150

Deep fried cheese with cumen, paprika, and green bell peppers wrapped in lumpia wrappers. And served with fresh roasted tomato salsa. 




MUSHROOMS and CHORIZO
PHp185

Button mushrooms sauted with olive oil and garlic added with chorizo cubes and caramelized Onikons. (?)




Sizzling Beef Tendon
PHp220

A must try dish! A dish love by most of Filipinos. 
Beef Tendon or "litid" in layman's term, mix with gravy and garlic.






For me, I thoroughly enjoyed the fresh Tuna Sashimi Diablo, super love the crispiness of the wanton skin and the taste of the sashimi---perfectly marinated plus the added Kikkoman sauce on it!


The PIZZA & PASTA menu is still the same, my one and only fave is still the best seller of all time.


PESTO LINGUINI
PHp155

A mixture of pesto sauce with toasted cashew nuts, linguini and parmesan cheese.



But they have added two new dishes that you will surely love, especially those who loves to eat seafoods.


SHRIMP DIAVEL PASTA
PHp250

A spicy gambas added with a home-made marina sauce and red pepper flakes.



SEAFOOD SUPREMO PIZZA
PHp360

Shrimp, anchovies, garlic, onion, bell pepper



For the main course, though shrimp diavel pasta is a must try food now, I still love my personal favorite Primo Pesto Linguini. Maybe because I don't like the after taste of diavel, it doesn't taste like acid---it's just sour!

If you like food that are salty, well this pizza is for you. You really need a glass of drink if you order Supremo pizza, it is too salty!


If you want to have a quick tasty bite on a BURGERS & SANDWICHES---"PRIMO" is the right place for that.

Cheesy Bacon Mushroom Burger
PHp255 with Fries
PHp210 Ala Carte

An all beef patty, with melted cheddar and mozzarella, bacon strips, mushrooms, tomatoes and a buttered bun.  



GRILLED CHEESE, TOMATO AND BASIL
PHp185 with Fries
PHp140 Ala Carte

Pan-grilled mozzarella & cheddar melt with pomodoro and fresh basil in whole wheat



It's obvious that I don't have a good photos from these two dishes, because I am busy eating them all. Hahahahaha...so funny, but I really like the taste --- I love the mozzarella melt with the bacon and mushroom. And I love the combination of cheese, tomato and basil! All in all..the BEST!


Whenever I want something sweet but don't want to start baking or blending, I think of a waffles. And as I often stuck with savoury thoughts in my minds, the craving -- I  think of Primo SWEET TREATS.


CLASSIC GOLDEN WAFFLE
PHp110

Served with whipped butter and maple flavored syrup


BANAFLE 
PHp160

A classic golden waffle top with vanilla ice cream and banana fosters 

HAZELNUT & BANANA WAFFLE
PHP140

A hazelnut cream covered waffle top with banana slices 

MANGO JUBILEE WAFFLE
PHp170

A classic golden waffle, with vanilla ice cream and mangoes jubilee on the side 

And what about the drinks? They served us an ICED VIETNAMESE COFFEE PHp60 only.

The iced coffee is so refreshing. A perfect delicious pick-me up on a hot day!




So there you have it, the list of the newest food, you will be hungry craving for brought to us by PRIMO CAFE & GRILLE located at Camus and General Luna St., besides DUCATI and fronting Apo View Hotel.

  2. I have only seen tendon as a pair for noodles, but not as a dish of its own. It has a very soft and tender consistency that is very unique to it.
