Davao has a lot more to offer than its famous Durian. In a small restaurant along Cabantian Road in Buhangin District, you can eat fried frogs! The name of the restaurant is Goody Cove Grill and they are serving real fried frog, locally known as Baki or Palaka.

Crunchy Fried Frog

"It tastes like chicken". That's the common remark of those who ate it. Well, you don't need to worry because these frogs were the edible ones. The type of frogs residing in rice fields, so more or less they're just eating leaf-eating bugs.

You can eat the fried frog by itself or dip it in the mixture of vinegar and grated onions. You can eat it with rice or with beer. Also, the best way to eat it is by using your bare hands and I guess there's no other way to do it :-). The freshly fried frog is crunchy and depending on the length of cooking, it can be crunchy down to the very bones.

Goody Cove Grill is not a fancy restaurant so the ambiance is far from majestic. I guess, the only thing it can offer best is adventure. And adventure it will surely be because of the thrill of eating the exotic fried frog.
