FOR a good meal, lunch, or dinner, we would want something that would satisfy our cravings and ensure us with full and happy tummies.
To satisfy our cravings, Boy Zugba has recently opened its first branch in Davao City at the third floor of Abreeza Ayala Mall.
"The Boy Zugba concept is 'kusina Bisaya' (Visayan kitchen). We want to showcase the binasaya gyud nga food and hospitality (We want to showcase Visayan food and hospitality). We want everyone who speaks Visayan to be very comfortable in Boy Zugba and showcase what we have to offer," said Henrik Yu, marketing manager of Boy Zugba.
The Bisaya concept is also very evident as their dishes are generally named in Bisaya. The dishes are also creatively named and will make you giggle while reading them.
The restaurant offers a range of classic Filipino favorite dishes like kare-kare, pinakbet, chicken inasal, lechon kawali, and lumpia, among others. Some of their must-try specialties include the Cheezzy Chorizo, Sinuglaw de Cagayan, and Pancit sa Pulis.
If you are coming to Boy Zugba as a family or barkada of five and want to enjoy most of their offerings in one serving, then you guys should order the boodle sets, which include some of the favorite dishes from the restaurant piled around and on top a generous serving of rice. To put it simply, it is a feast served on your table.
Boy Zugba currently offers three sets of boodle -- Karne-vorous (P999), I Sea Food (P1,499), and Meat Me @ Da Sea (P1,799).
The Karne-vorous includes Cheezzy Chorizo, pork barbecue, pork liempo, and Krispy KangKong. I Sea Food includes Binukadkad na Isda, calamarez, nucos, Krispy Kangkong, Kinilaw with lato, and Tinuhog na pansat. Lastly, the Meat Me @ Da Sea includes nucos, calamares, Kinilaw with Lato, pork barbecue, Chicken Inasal, pork liempo, Cheezzy Chorizo, Krispy Kangkong, Itlog Maalat, Mangga't Bagoong, and Kropek.
In terms of service, Yu assures that its diners will enjoy only the best with their friendly and fun staff. The fun also goes with the ambiance of the restaurant as they have implemented some "fun" measures for the diners.
"Every night we will dim the lights and turn on the disco lights," said Yu.
For her part, Micah Uy, Boy Zugba-Davao marketing officer and franchisee, said during peak hours they have the dining staff dance with the disco lights on.
Yu added that they call this as Sadsad sa Boy Zugba.
After the opening of their third branch at Abreeza Ayala Mall, their first two were in Cagayan de Oro City, Boy Zugba is set to open additional branches at SM City Davao, SM CDO Downtown Premier, Robinsons Iligan, and at the IT Park in Cebu City. Yu said all branches are set to open within the year.
