I was thinking about not posting about our dinner at Claude’s since all my food shots were beyond crappy, but it was our best meal in Davao and deserves to be remembered.
Claude’s le Cafe de Ville was highly recommended to us by our friend Greg. Run by Chef Claude le Neindre, the restaurant occupies the Oboza family’s ancestral home.
The house has been around since 1929, and is rich in character and history. Word is that the family’s patriarch Alfonso Obloza was the city’s first mayor, and that former Philippine Presidents Manuel L. Quezon and Manuel Roxas have visited here.
Our meal begins with a lot of bread.
Faye recommended the pate with caramelized onions (served with a basket of bread) and it was the bomb! Sinful, amazing, delicious!
We had soups.
Salad with breaded goat cheese.
And creme brulee.
Everything we ordered was good, and the pate and the French onion soup were to die for! I would go back to this restaurant in a heartbeat. It’s a beautiful place for special occasions, and they also private rooms for small groups.
John and I, Faye and Kaloy
A big THANK YOU to the newlyweds for treating us to a wonderful dinner!
