One Lovely Dinner

And that doesn’t mean the last.

Just last week, the hubby and I checked out O’Henry’s restaurant in Butuan City, just a few steps from Gaisano Mall Butuan.

We love the ambiance of the place. And the food we ordered which came with unlimited rice, was simply delicious. My order was pork adobo. We were just a bit sad that our order for vegetable chopsuey came a bit late. But the staff”s superb service made up for this. We find their rates reasonable, not too expensive for the kind of food they serve and the ambiance they offer.

I wouldn’t mind recommending O’Henry’s to anyone whether from the city of Butuan or to any tourist coming in to the city. And this I did. A few days later after that dinner with the hubby, I recommended the place for dinner to my friend from Cebu ๐Ÿ™‚

Christmas Day Outing

Christmas Day is usually a time for the family and the extended family to get together. It could mean having a special dinner or meals together. Then there is the giving of gifts and yes, there is also time to attend a Christmas church service.

This year, our family based in Butuan City, decided to check out a newly opened resort and event center, going by the name Sprinkles Water Resort, located along Barangay Kinamlutan. The place, at the moment, only has one pool open for use. Another pool is set to be finished, along with a children’s pool. We were also told that rooms for guests will also be added in. The place has a nice, modern look. Per our experience, they still need to improve a lot on their services though. Entrance to the resort is at P100 per person.

Below are some memorable Christmas Day photos.

Sunday Afternoon at Kapihan sa Datu

I’ve been wanting to check out the coffee place near the Butuan City Sports Complex and I finally got the chance last Sunday afternoon, just before sunset. Thanks to a good friend, Jhie.

Kapihan sa Datu sits on an open space quite accessible in the city. A play park for kids is just adjacent to it, which is really a cool thing for parents. They can have coffee while their kids are playing. While you are there, you also get a view of the majestic Mt. Mayapay.

The place serves freshly brewed coffee (Manobo blend), pastries and even barbecue at night. I would say the price for their coffee and food is quite friendly to the pocket. They also have a souvenir shop which features products from Butuan as well as from the Caraga region (pastries, coffee, native bags, among others).

Kapihan sa Datu also has a wi-fi connection so you can actually go there with your laptop and check your emails as you drink your coffee. But that Sunday afternoon, I came with my hubby and a couple of friends. We drank our latte, ate hot dogs and well, just talked ๐Ÿ™‚

Kapihan sa Datu is open daily from 9 am to 11 pm.
