Dining in Davao: The Bagnetian Kitchen's New Look


It has been a while since I last passed by "The Brick Lane Square" and in this particular rainy evening I was upset about something, I thought that the best way when distressed was to eat. I asked my travel buddy Dave to accompany me, and being dining-out lovers like me he excitedly accepted my invitation.

It's my second time to be in this restaurant and what caught my attention was it's new look. The Bagnetian Kitchen's new ambiance was cozy, intimate and comfortable. Aside from great food and generous servings, what was more inviting about his place was the red sofa placed at the center of this tiny restaurant that seem to tell diners to come, relax and enjoy the food. There were only about 6 small dining tables inside, although there were tables in the open air area infront of the restaurant to accommodate several diners.

Bagnet Sisig

The Bagnetian Kitchen's dishes center on "bagnet" an ilocano style of deep frying pork belly similar to "lechon kawali" but a crunchier version. They created dishes from a fusion of bagnet and traditional filipino dishes like Binagoongang Bagnet, Humbagnet, Bagnet Pakbet, Dinuguang Bagnet and many more yet still the most saleable were always the Bagnet Classic which were really appetizing when dip in vinegar with garlic & pepper. They also served other dishes that you can match with chilled beer or a glass of wine on weekend night gimmicks.

We ordered Bagnet Sisig & Bagnet Express that evening paired with a cup of steamed white rice. Being a lechon kawali lover these bagnet dishes were such treats that I forgot what I was upset about.
