Fi­nally, Tud­ing’s yo­ghurt atbp.

Sun.Star Davao - - FRONT PAGE - By Stella a. eStremera

AF­TER sev­eral at­tempts years apart, I fi­nally made it to Bistro ni Tud­ing along San Pe­dro Street. It's a long story why it took that long, suf­fice it to say that each time I was there (years apart), it was closed.

Bistro ni Tud­ing, through the years it has been op­er­at­ing has made a name for its home-made yo­ghurt. But since I was 'dat­ing' two mil­len­nial pro­fes­sion­als, then food must be in the menu.

Mikko got the beef kaldereta with bone mar­row, while Nino got the pork curry. Me, I went for pasta... pesto pasta with crab fat.

Let's segue first to the story about that crab fat...

I told the waiter, "I want the pasta with aligue, please." And the waiter says the one with aligue is the pork dish.

"Eh ano itong pasta with crab fat?" I asked.

"Crab fat po yan, ma'am," waiter replies.

"Alam mo ba ang aligue at crab fat ay iisa? English lang ang crab fat."

And he goes, "Aaaaahhh!"

I hope he learned some­thing from me that night.

Any­way, back to the food. The pasta was good. The boys en­joyed their meal, and yes, my aper­i­tif was plain yo­ghurt. It was thick and yummy, and made me happy.

I topped my meal with Buko Sher­bet with Cof­fee Liqueur, Mikko got the Yo­ghurt with Durian Jam top­ping, while Nino got the plain yo­ghurt as well.

It was a quiet meal as we were the only ones there.

Bistro ni Tud­ing is not known to many be­cause of its lo­ca­tion. It's the restau­rant of Ba­hay ni Tud­ing, a small ho­tel made from an old house be­hind Mer­cury Drug San Pe­dro. Be­side the drug store is a drive­way, go in. You will see the house. En­joy! P.S.: Our photo in this ar­ti­cle is not taken at Bistro. I for­got to snap pho­tos of our din­ner and so I just snapped when we were hav­ing our cof­fee some­where else.

P.S.S.: The "Tud­ing Clan" has a long his­tory in Davao City with their first gen­er­a­tion set­tler Ve­nan­cia Ver­ano ar­riv­ing in Davao in 1859, just 11 years af­ter Jose Oyan­guren was ap­pointed by the Span­ish Gov­ern­ment to build a set­tle­ment here.
