When my mother and I were circling the mall for a place to eat, we came across Hukad. This dining establishment is pretty popular even in Davao because of their menu of Filipino favorites. I've been to their branch in Davao and it was an OK experience.

It wasn't dinnertime yet when we stopped in front of Hukad to look at their menu. My mother spotted some dishes she wanted to try, and vowed to return during dinnertime to give them a try.

So come dinnertime, we visited Hukad along with my father.

While I liked the furniture and the interiors with the whole modern Filipino vibe, I think the lighting was a little too low. Some parts of the restaurant had ample lighting, while some parts were quite dim. 128064

We were seated at one of the couches, and an attendant immediately came to take our order. The attendant was helpful - she had the menu memorized, and she even suggested some dishes for us to try.

While I was looking at the menu, I noticed that the smell of pesticide. Ugh. 128567 I'm not sure where it was coming from, but it took more than a minute for the smell to dissipate. I'm not sure if the other diners noticed.

I left the ordering to my mother and father. Our orders were served pretty fast - in about 5 minutes or so.

• Crispy Tadyang
While it was cooked right, it tasted like oriental braised beef. Seriously. 128528 The seasoning completely ruined it! I like my crispy tadyang plain and simple, thank you.

• Fried Dinuguan
Sound funky, right? The attendant explained that the meat in this was fried first, and then later on cooked in pig's blood. And while it sounded funky, it tasted funky too. The meat was overly crispy that it was hard to chew on. The dinuguan also lacked vinegar and chili.

• Adobong Talong
It's just eggplant cooked in soy sauce and vinegar. But it was VERY OILY!! Bleh. 128534 The eggplant was also overcooked.

My father also ordered halaan, but we were almost done eating, and it had not been served yet. He just canceled the order since it took so long. 128530

Their service was just ok. It wasn't hard to get the attention of the waitstaff, and billing out didn't take too long, but we had to ask for our water glasses to be refilled. Their staff aren't the most cheerful people either.

When we got home, my tummy started acting up. It only does that when I've had very oily food. (I don't have allergies and I'm not hyperacidic). And I think I have their adobong talong to blame. Ugh. 128547
