MY FAVORITE RESTAURANT IN DAVAO

Must try the bacon-wrapped bagaybay! Delicious! This is a modern fancier version of the Filipino dishes. Good for two servings. The food was fantastic and the staff were very friendly and attentive. They were smiling every time they approach. Great job!

There are enough choices on the menu. The servings are not very generous. Service is so-so. But the place is bright and clean. There are other choices nearby.

We had a great lunch here. I'd say try their crispy pata, imbao soup and binukadkad na tilapia. Their wait staff are polite and the service is fairly fast. The place looks simple yet elegant, and nice overlooking view too. I can't wait to have another dinner out with my family here again.

Good atmosphere, good service, wide selection of Filipino plates, but this is a place to order Crispy Pata.. Convenient location at SM Lanang Mall.

It was a nice experience taking our lunch at Selera. We enjoyed our ordered food and that was truly delicious. The Kinilaw was yummy and the brown rice was nicely presented. Vegetable salad was equally tasty too. We took time to savor the tasty menu we ordered.

The restaurant’s menu placed outside the restaurant was quite inviting so we tried to check it out. There were posted Ads that caught our attention. The first combination was; Crispy Pancit(noodles), boneless lechon, unlimited rice and ice teas good for 4 persons for P800.00 and the second post was Kare-Kare, Cripy Pata, unlimited rice, ice tea for 4 persons at...

I've always been a fan of kusina selera. Their branch is used to be at Legaspi St. but now they are already at SM Lanang. I love their paella with dried fish! I also like their "gising-gising" which is made of spinach with a sauce of spicy coconut milk. Recently, I was treat at SM and we ordered their kare-kare... More

Kusina Selera is by the entrance to a courtyard which I would surmise was a former residence/property of someone of importance in Davao 50 years ago (maybe even now). The restaurant is among a string of establishments within Paseo de Legaspi along Pelayo St (formerly Legaspi St) a few hundred meters from People's Park and in front of the yellow... More

I have not been in Davao in almost 3 years and was so surprised with the many developments around the city. One of the new developments in the city is Kusina Selera which I believe is one of the best restaurantas I've been too! Their crispy pata is just simply to die for which was touted as the best in...
