FOOD & RESTAURANT / ARTISANA COMFORT GOURMET




RAFFY AND ANNIE GARCIA, THE COUPLE BEHIND THE DAVAO RESTAURANTS SPIRALE AND PASTANNI THOUGHT ABOUT OPENING A RESTO WHERE FOOD ART IS CELEBRATED BY FOODIES. ACQUIRING A 1950’s HOUSE IN ARAULLO STREET IN DAVAO CITY AND RESTORING IT INTO AN ARTSY RESTAURANT BRINGING OUT A NATURAL FILIPINO HOMEY AMBIANCE.




THE HOUSE WHICH HAS ALL IT ELEMENTS FROM WOODEN ARCS BOASTS AN ARTISTIC TIMELESS BEAUTY.  THE RESTO HAS A VERY RELAXED ATMOSPHERE WHERE FOOD IS DEFINITELY  ENJOYED BY DINERS. THE PLACE IS  FILLED UP WITH PAINTNG FROM FAMOUS ARTISTS, ARTISANA DELIGHT FOODIES WITH NOT JUST A CASUAL AND COZY FEEL BUT A PERFECT GATHERING PLACE WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS OVER REALLY GOOD FOOD.


CHEF ANNIE TWEAKS HER FAVORITE FILIPINO DISHES AND COLLECTION OF PERSONAL RECIPES IN ARTISANA BUT STILL USES FILIPINO ELEMENTS AND MAINTAINS NATIVE TASTE IN IT.

A FEW WEEKS AGO, MEDIA, LIFESTYLE WRITERS AND BLOGGERS WERE INVITED TO  A SPECIAL GATHERING OPENING ITS DOORS TO A GUSTATORY DINNER. WE WERE SERVED AROUND 10 DELIGHTFUL BESTSELLERS FROM THE ARTISANA MENU. ITS HARD TO TELL WHICH ARE MY FAVORITES BECAUSE ALL OF THEM WERE SO GOOD. 



HERE ARE SOME OF THE SIGNATURE DISHES THAT WE HAVE TRIED DURING THE MEDIA DINNER.


Salad Artisana

Pinoy Kangkong and Camote Tops with Lettuce, Seedless Grapes, and Malagos Chevre Cheese topped with Mangosteen Pineapple Dressing


 Balut Al Ajillio

Cooked like a common streetfood kwek kwek The Balus is enhanced with plenty of Garlic.



KBL (Kadios, Baboy, Langka)

Remnds me of a famous Ilonggo recipe with slowly simmered lechon and pork meat.



Crispy Pata Like No Other

A unique serving of two way pata where the hock is fried to crispy juicy perfection and the knuckle is braised Chinese Pata Tim style.


Duck Adobado

This was a star. Shredded crispy duck meat in a homemade adobo sauce.



Paella Mariano

My personal favorite. Chef Annie’s heirloom recipe. Named after her father. A localized Spanish mixed rice paella topped with a crispy Ilocano Bagnet.


Roast Pochetta Binagoongan

Uses crispy Lechon Roll cooked with homemade Bagoong shrimp paste


Chipirones Adobo En Su TInta

If you love squid, this will make you happy. Chef Annie uses the squid ink to make it into a home made adobo sauce.



Beef Pares

Truly delighted to finally have a taste of Beef Pares after so many years. And it did not diasappoint. Boasts a trio dish of beef, rice and soup inspired by Binondo Chinese of rice topping with clear broth.


Bihod Linguine

An interesting fusion of Salted Egg and fermented Black Bean based sauce mixed with rice vermicelli topped with “Bihod” or Tuna Fish Roe.



DESSERTS

Of course Chef Annie's desserts did not disappoint. 
CHEESECAKE ANA
CHUNI CAKE
KESO DE BOLA CHEESECAKE



Soon, Artisana will begin serving breakfast with wide menu selection. In the coming months, the resto’s second floor function rooms may be booked for parties and private functions.


Its vast parking area will soon become a venue of a weekend market where fresh produce, home made delicacies and artisanal products will be part of the purveyors. Also by early 2020,  bar will also open to cater those who who want to simply hang out and chill to cap off a night with friends.
