Puto and Dinuguan at Cecils

I have long been craving dinuguan with puto and first thing that come to my mind is Cecils. Last Saturday, our seminar finished early because the organizers and some of the participants who are from Luzon and Visayas, first timers in Davao were having their tour around the city. On my way to Davao Doctors Hospital to visit Mom, that was around 3:30 in the afternoon, just in time for snacks, I went to Cecils Food Snack Inn at Malvar Street. I asked if dinuguan with puto is available because what I know is that they serve it only on MWF (Monday, Wednesday and Friday). I was entertained by a lovely lady and she said it's available but there's no puto. So i said it's alright, I just ordered bread instead of puto. So yummy... I finished the whole bowl!

For those who do not know, Dinuguan or pork blood stew in English is a Filipino savory stew of blood and meat usually stomach, intestines, ears, snout or meat simmered in a rich spicy gravy of pig blood, garlic, chili and vinegar. The term dinuguan comes from the Filipino word dugo which means "blood". It is often served with white rice or Filipino rice called puto (steamed rice cake).

Dinuguan (pork blood stew), iced tea, and bread...isn't it perfect for an afternoon snack?

I finished all of this! takaw ko no :))

Cecils serves a lot of yummy foods aside from dinuguan. They serve sweets like leche flan, chocolate eclair, cream puff, durian pie, fruit pie, pineapple pie, cheese roll, chocolate cake. They also serve short orders like batchoy, luglog, pancit molo, spaghetti, fresh or fried lumpia.
