Going Bananas at Saging Republik
Saging Repablik is a newly-opened restaurant along Tionko Avenue. It serves mostly Filipino dishes with a special banana twist in them. This is the newest venture of Mr. Gatchi Gatchalian, the same person who introduced Blugre, the first ever coffee shop in Davao in 1999.
As someone who lives in a city where bananas are abundant, we almost take the good old potassium-rich bananas for granted. But not in this place. Almost of Saging Repablik's recipes have bananas in them, cooked and prepared in a uniquely sumptuous way.
They also have become famous for their Create-Your-Own-Banana-Cue. You have the option to choose their own dips and toppings. The choices are caramel, chocolate and white chocolate for dips. For toppings, they can choose white chocolate, rice crisps, mini candies, choco chips, sprinkles, choconut, almonds, chopped nuts and chopped chocolate.
They have a big, high ceiling design which makes its ambiance so relaxing and a perfect place to bond with family and good friends.
