Tiny Kitchen in Davao: Home-Brewed Lemon Iced Tea and More

By | December 20, 2011


One thing I like about Davao is that there’s a lot of places that a foodie can discover just within the city. I’ve already written about Lachi’s and today, I’d like to talk about Tiny Kitchen.

Located along F. Torres Street corner Mabini Street in Davao City, Tiny Kitchen used to be a delicacy outlet run by husband and wife, Vincent & Donna Rodriguez. But after seeing the potential of having a fully operating restaurant, they turned their place into one of the must-eat destinations in the city.

The place is small and can only accommodate around 16 diners. However, it’s cozy and comfortable inside. And the smell of pastries and sweet delicacies once you enter will make you instantly hungry for dessert.

Me and my friends was able to sample a lot of their dishes that day. We had pasta, pizza, sandwiches and different varieties of paella. Personally, my favorite is the Paella Valencia.

For dessert, we had a variety of brownies and cakes. The best one is the Frozen Chocolate Brazo de Mercedez – which was honored by Inquirer Lifestyle as one of the best desserts in the country, and I agree!

It’s the one on the left. The one on the right is their Frozen Mango Brazo de Mercedez, also very delicious.

To down all these food, I ordered their lemon iced tea. I liked their brew because it wasn’t too sweet, it was refreshing and it complimented the taste of their dishes and desserts very well.
