Hi, Foodies! 🙂 Before I continue on with my Cebu and Manila food trip sagas, allow me to take you back to Davao City for a quick intermission. I suddenly had this craving for Ngoyong that I must share with you guys.
Ngoyong or Ngohiong is a very popular street food in Cebu. You can find almost everyone enjoying it, anytime and anywhere in the queen city of the south. Ngohiong is a fried spring roll consisting of ubod, chopped garlic, spring onions and singkamas, shelled and chopped shrimps or ground pork and then seasoned with ngohiong or chinese five spice powder. It is then enjoyed with a yummy ngohiong dip.
Whenever in Davao City, Ngoyong Haus is the place I go to for that needed ngoyong fix. It is located in Barrio Obrero. The place is a little hard to spot and it isn’t in any way lavish or posh. It’s an ala carte dining with just the basic tables and chairs needed for eating. The thing that makes up for the lack of aesthetics is the great quality of food. Almost everything tastes good. The ngoyong is prepared and cooked just the way I like it. Crunchy on the outside with a soft, tasty and well-cooked filling. The sauce is also really good. Another one of those “lip-smackin, finger-lickin'” experiences that you would just want to continue on forever.
Aside from ngoyong, they also serve chicken and pork bbq, grilled and fried liempo and lechon manok among others. Their liempo is also good. I like the fried liempo better though. Yeah, I know it’s more sinful but flavor and consistency is better than the grilled one. You cannot go wrong with the chicken barbecue too.
Want another reason to visit and check out Ngoyong Haus? Here’s a great one. It’s pocket-friendly! 🙂
I usually just pay a little over Php 500.00 for a party of four voracious eaters and that is, yours truly and and her tres marios. Now, that is happiness. 🙂
