After hitting the Davao Crocodile Park, try checking out the exotic fare offered at the Riverwalk Grilll situated behind the park. 

The café itself is air cooled by the breeze that blows over the river beside it, together with three rotating wall fans. It can get warm.

The flooring is gravel stones, with the décor, ethnic and made from bamboo. Nothing fancy.

The menu is quite extensive with the exotic fare unexpectedly, pricey. However, the flavors of the food we sampled were quite good. Here's a look at their menu:

The service was sadly found lacking. 2 tables of hungry potential customer left while we were there one warm, Saturday, summer afternoon. I went up to the cashier to get the menu…and waited for our orders to be taken. After what seemed like a time in the heat, I went up to the cashier again and asked if they still planned to get our order, to which one of the 2 waiters asked: “Oh, didn’t you give me your order yet?”No.Duh.Sherlock.

After that, it was smooth sailing. Except I guess for the ostrich steak that we tried out. It was more a thinly sliced, tough, dried piece of meat, like tapa rather than a nice and juicy, low cholesterol piece of meat. Here’s what we got that day:

croc sisig tastes more like crunchy pork and NOT quite like chicken

touch but tasty, Ostrich Steak was quite good

it my not look it with all the garnish but this here's kinilaw na malasugue

rice portion are this much
I’d recommend trying exotic food at least once in your life. And for sure, Riverwalk’s menu was quite exotic. 

From TMW, may all your wanderings be better than ours!
