New Davao restaurant offers healthy food for kids
DAVAO CITY, March 17 (PNA) -- A newly-opened restaurant here is venturing on a different kind of a green or healthy food dining experience, especially for kids.
Lenlen Uy-Bosquit, owner of Sundays Resto, said feeding children with healthy food like green vegetables is a challenge for many parents.
"As a mother, I was challenged too and that inspired me to serve it here," she said.
Bosquit said among the dishes they serve, which appealed to the tastes of the kids, are malunggay dip with gourmet bread, mashed cauliflower and veggie-laden lasagna.
Veggie salads mixed with Davao fresh fruits like pomelo and ripe mango are winners, too.
Meanwhile, Bosquit, who does some of the cooking herself, said they also offer special comfort foods, which are "heirloom family recipes" from her Chinese grandmother, like "humba", ox tail, pochero steak and chicken tender.
Sundays complements the Go Hotel, a family venture with the Gokongwei led-Robinsons Land Corporation, which caters to foreign and domestic visitors.
She said they get "good feedback" from foreign visitors involving Filipino comfort dishes.
The family also operates Dencios Kamayan, which has eight branches around Davao City. Sundays Resto is the newest family baby under the supervision of Bosquit.
"The homey setting is what we want to offer to our diners plus our family recipe at an affordable price," she said.
Bosquit said the opening of more restaurants in Davao City is a welcome competition.
She said that the raw materials they use like vegetables, meat and other products are sourced locally except the cheese, which they import.
Sundays is one of the participants at the "Visit Davao Fun Sale," a sales event in Davao. (PNA)
