A Taste of Primo Café and Grille's New Menu

By ketchupthelatest - June 29, 2015

PRIMO Café and Grille, one of Davao’s homegrown restaurants, is whipping up additional delectable dishes to delight their customers and the foodies out there. Last week, I was one of the bloggers invited to have a taste of their new menu offering starting this month June.

PRIMO Café and Grille is owned by a group of friends who wanted to have their own place to share their love for eating and having fun.

Ever wonder how they got their name? The word "PRIMO" is taken from the Spanish word 'cousin' or 'a close, familiar relative'.  PRIMO (or 'prime' in English) also means "first in excellence, quality or value", vigor or success in a person's life".

It opened its doors on the 75th Anniversary of Araw ng Dabaw on March 16, 2012.  Historically, it was indeed a memorable opportunity that PRIMO would not miss to open its doors to Davao's discerning diners.

Since PRIMO specializes in simple, stomach warming, gut-filling, familiar 'comfort food', the new is their biggest--and tastiest---project this year. With a healthy fusion of several international cuisines marrying the cozy Filipino palate, every dish is a welcome surprise to your taste buds. 
Some of the menu’s flagship dishes are the Sizzling Beef Tendon, Tuna Sashimi Diablo, Mushrooms and Chorizo, Shrimp Diavel Pasta, Grilled Cheese Tomato and Basil Sandwich and the Seafood Supremo Pizza. Their old-school favourites, like the Crispy Pata, Sizzling Sisig and meaty burgers, are still faring very well through the years.

After a hearty meal, delight yourself with one of Primo’s Waffle Desserts. Their collection of golden brown waffles is a heavenly parade of sweetness---Banaffle, Hazelnut and Banana Waffle and the Mango Jubilee Waffle.

If you want to talk price, Primo won’t disappoint you in that area as well. For anything lower than P500, you and your companion can share a satisfying meal. 

Alex Tiaoqui, the restaurant’s General Manager  says that the Dabawenyo taste is becoming more sophisticated, and this serves as their inspiration in doing their best to deliver familiar tastes with whispers of exciting additions.  They regularly mix-and-match cuisines, extend beverage menu, and roll out exciting promos for added attraction.
