FOOD business in Davao City continued to grow as more national restaurants expand in the city, offering a wide array of food delights for the Dabawenyos.
Adding to the list is Cebu-based ChoobiChoobi restaurant which opened its 20th branch last Friday, March 18 at the SM Lanang Premier.
The restaurant’s branch in the city is the first in Mindanao.
“With the economic development of Davao and the knowing that Dabawenyos and Cebuanos as both Bisaya are most-likely have same taste-buds who spends more for the food than the place, we see the potential of opening our first branch here,” Constantine Tanchan, president of Choobi Flavors Corp. said.
Tanchan takes pride in offering to Dabawenyos the only restaurant that uses fresh shrimp harvested in Cebu, which is dubbed as the largest shrimp farm in the Philippines.
“It was always my dream of providing Filipinos with export-quality shrimp at local prices,” he said.
ChoobiChoobi’s first branch was opened in Parkmall, Cebu City.
“We offer mostly Filipino foods and some Chinese food like pancit,” he added
The restaurant’s specialty is Shrimp in a Bag, which is a pound of shrimps served in a bag, cooked in a variety of ways, and oozing with their savory butter garlic sauce perfectly paired with ChoobiChoobi’s Cha Tao Miao which is stir fried snow pea sprouts; crunchy and tasty.
