So I strolled to Penong’s, thanks to the helpful front desk staff at The Pinnacle. They can actually be as crazy as I am – if you engage them in a banter! Hey, before Penong’s, there is even another eatery with live singers. Well crowded with a lot of Red Horse bottles I saw on almost all tables! And I thought I may not have to go to Obrero after dinner hehe.
Awk, and the table offered to me was at very center of everything! There were tables out by the back parking area, and tables everywhere, but those were all taken. Yeah yeah, one dreaded dinner scenario I do not wish to be in – groups or pairs of people in the rest of the tables while I sit alone. Oops, no no, I should make that “pathetically alone”! Awrrrr! But the tummy was grumbling and the air in this place smelled of something damnedly delectable. So I sat down and received the menu!
I ordered the combo of “1 Chicken Barbecue and 1 Pork Barbecue With Rice” and thought I was happy with it until the waiter asked if I wanted something else. So I asked what else was/is their bestseller. He told me about "Baby Back Ribs" which he said was a small good for 1 person, and "Pinakbet" that he described as just a plate for 1 or 2!
Nice combination, right? Wrong!
Drinks? Bummer! They do not serve beer AND they serve Pepsi Products ONLY! Argh! So I had “service water” instead. At least it made sure I was going some place else after dinner! Because, in fact, they also close rather early - open 1030AM to 2PM and 530PM to 10PM only.
Wonderful enough place to have dinner in Davao. Probably even best for lunch! Though I will have to rethink about going there alone again on a Friday night hehe. There are just many other things to taste there, and I only have one stomach! Plus, as everywhere else crowded that I ever go to for a meal, people couldn’t help but cast curious glances at me with that same look in their eyes as if saying “kawawa naman siya, nag-iisa” hahaha!
That, of course, after I told the Pinnacle front desk staff that Penong’s was an excellent suggestion.
